The pair were followed by Ryan Blaney, Brad Keselowski and Aric Almirola to round out the top five.

Series points leader Kevin Harvick finished the final round in sixth place with a hot lap of 176.769 mph.

Qualifying was not immune to some spins and skids led by BJ McLeod and Ty Gibbs in the opening round and Christopher Bell during the final round. Ford dominated the early stages with Logano leading. Eight of the top 10 machines that qualified for the final round were Fords.

Sunday’s Ember Health 400 is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET (FOX, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
