Twenty-year-old Alex Bowman held off the advanced qualifying techniques of Cup regular Brad Keselowski (and Denny Hamlin) to win the 21 Means 21 pole award for the 9th Annual O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway. Keselowski starts on the outside of the front row.

Bowman's lap of 29.002 at 186.194 also outgunned Sam Hornish Jr., Trevor Bayne and Austin Dillon, giving Bowman the second pole of his Nationwide career, both coming at the Great American Speedway.

Kyle Busch starts from sixth and the visiting 2012 Nationwide Series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. rolls off seventh.

Regan Smith, Brian Scott, and Friday night's WinStar World Casino 350 Truck race winner Ty Dillon round out the top ten.
