2014 Michigan II: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Recap

Jeff Gordon, driver of the No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS, set a track qualifying record en route to winning the pole for the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway on Friday. Gordon turned in a fast lap of 206.558 mph around the two-mile oval. It is the seventh-fastest qualifying speed in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history.

"I knew that we were really strong here the last time we were here and what our team is doing right now it’s just phenomenal how they continue to improve race cars and just the whole effort. I’m just so proud of them. You don’t go around this place like that, that fast without a really good race car. Thanks to Axalta, Drive To End Hunger, Pepsi, Chevrolet, everybody that made this possible. I’m so excited about the way our race team is performing right now," Gordon said following his second pole of the season and 76th of his career.
