FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Brad Keselowski has his first pole as an owner-driver at NASCAR's highest level, a week after RFK Racing's other car went to Victory Lane.

While never in playoff contention after joining a rebranded team with longtime owner Jack Roush this season, 2012 Cup champion Keselowski had a qualifying lap of 189.99 mph on Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway. It came a week after he got his first stage win of the season at Bristol, where RKF driver Chris Buescher won the race.

After non-playoff drivers won the first three races of the postseason, Keselowski starts in front Sunday in the race that will start NASCAR's round of 12 .
