“I know tomorrow is going to be a reality check,” Montoya said. “I’m really open-minded about tomorrow. But let’s enjoy today.”
Montoya is the 15th different pole winner in 21 races this season and earned a spot in the 2013 Shootout at Daytona.
The first repave at Pocono since 1995 produced record speeds in qualifying for the June race _ 36 cars bettered the previous track record.
Logano set the track record of 179.598 mph and went on to win the race. With 400 miles of racing and several practice sessions on the track, the speeds weren’t as fast on Saturday. Logano prepared for qualifying by watching a replay of his second career Cup victory.
“I was sitting in the motorhome watching the race tape and I’m like, `I know who is going to win this race.’ This is going to be a good one,’” he said. “Those are more fun to watch.”
