Sunday will feature the Pure Michigan 400 at the Michigan International Speedway for the 23rd Sprint Cup race of the 2013 season. The race will be on ESPN at 1 p.m. ET, with a green flag set for approximately 1:16 p.m., according to

Joey Logano holds the pole position after posting a track record lap of 203.949 miles per hour. He broke Marcos Ambrose's record of 203.241 mph easily. Kurt Busch and Jimmie Johnson, the second- and third-place qualifiers, also bested that record with their speeds.

The top five rows were rounded out by Mark Martin, Jeff BUrton, Juan Pablo Montoya, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch.
