FORT WORTH, Texas -- Tony Stewart knocked Brad Keselowski from the pole as qualifying ended Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway. Justin Verlander Pink Jersey . Stewart waited right until the end of the final round to attempt his lap and circled the speedway at 195.454 mph to grab the top starting spot for Sundays race. Its Stewarts 15th career pole and first since Atlanta in 2012. "It was cool. Im not normally a qualifier," Stewart said. Keselowski made his attempt earlier in the session and turned his lap at 195.419. He was out of his car and watching the scoring pylon as Stewart crossed the finish line, and Keselowski dropped his head in disappointment when he saw hed been beaten. "Stewart put down a great lap at the end, didnt see that one coming," Keselowski said. "Thats why they do it this way. Really exciting and a lot of fun to watch, and quite honestly, a lot of fun to participate in this new format of qualifying." Kevin Harvick qualified third as two Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolets were in the top three. The organization is the only one in the Sprint Cup Series with two wins this season -- Harvick won at Phoenix and Kurt Busch won last week at Martinsville -- but the four cars have been all over the map and lacked consistency. "Tony capturing the pole is as good as it gets for the organization," Harvick said. "Thats a huge improvement for where weve been as a company the last few weeks." Busch qualified 11th as three of the four SHR drivers advanced into the third and final round of knockout qualifying. The final session was dominated by Fords as blue oval drivers claimed six of the final 12 spots and were led by Keselowski, who will start on the front row for the fifth time in seven races this season. Ford drivers Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards qualified fourth and fifth for Roush Fenway Racing. Then came Joe Gibbs Racings Denny Hamlin, the only Toyota driver to make it to the top 12. Trevor Bayne was seventh in his first appearance in the final group this season, and he was followed by Ryan Newman, Marcos Ambrose, Joey Logano, Busch and Jeff Gordon. Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson failed to advance to the final round for the first time this season. "Were really surprised not to have pace here in qualifying," Johnson said. "We have a very fast race car, in race trim especially. Our car is blazing fast. Qualifying hasnt always been my strong suit, and today it showed up here for whatever reason. "Well get her cleaned up and get her ready for the race on Sunday." Anibal Sanchez Tigers Jersey .Y. -- The New York Islanders have been on the losing end of many roller-coaster finishes this season. James McCann Tigers Jersey .ca NHL Draft rankings. The Prince Albert Raiders left winger has moved seven places up to fourth-spot in the March rankings. LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Wyoming coach Larry Shyatt was familiar with this feeling -- even if it had been a while. Riley Grabau scored 17 points, Larry Nance Jr. had 14 and the Cowboys beat No. 5 San Diego State 68-62 on Tuesday night to end the Aztecs 20-game winning streak. Shyatt was Wyomings coach 16 years ago -- almost to the day -- the last time a top-five team was upset in Arena-Auditorium. That was Feb. 12, 1998, when the Cowboys took down No. 5 Utah 62-56 on the same floor. "Its like a good bottle of wine -- it gets better with age," Shyatt said. The Cowboys (15-9, 6-5 Mountain West Conference) savored another marquee win Tuesday as fans rushed the court after the final buzzer, mobbing Wyoming players. "Their only other loss was to Arizona," Nance said. "I mean, to be in that category is awesome, you know? Fifth-ranked team, the fans storming the court like they did, it was spectacular." The Aztecs (21-2, 10-1) won 20 in row after losing to Arizona in their second game of the season. The streak tied the program mark set by the 2010-11 team, which finished a school-record 34-3 after reaching the Sweet Sixteen for the first time. "This is a tough league and you go on the road and it becomes even tougher. And with the win streak we had, I think everybody knows it and everybody talks about they want to be the team to break it and storm the court," SDSU coach Steve Fisher said. "And to Wyomings credit, they were the ones. They were the ones that did it. Thhey played better and they deserved one. Justin Verlander Grey Jersey. " Dwayne Polee II led San Diego State with 15 points, followed by Xavier Thames with 13. "Youve just got to take it as a learning experience," said Thames, who was averaging 18.1 points. "Theres a lot of season left, so we cant hang our heads." Wyoming built a 16-point lead midway through the second half, catching the Aztecs defence lagging several times. At one point, the Cowboys slammed down four consecutive dunks. San Diego State mounted a furious comeback, closing within four points with 1:04 left and again with 40 seconds to go on two buckets by Winston Shepard, who finished with 10 points. But the Aztecs, who were averaging 73.4 points, failed to score again as Wyoming pulled away with free throws in the final 30 seconds. Nathan Sobey and Charlie Hankerson Jr. each had nine points for Wyoming, which used an efficient offence and a stifling defence to stop San Diego State. The game featured the top two defensive teams in the Mountain West. Entering the game, San Diego State was giving up an average of 56.6 points, while the Cowboys were allowing 60.4. But it was the Aztecs who had the most trouble making baskets, hitting 38 per cent of their field goals and committing 13 turnovers while Wyoming made 58 per cent of its attempts from the floor and had 11 turnovers. The Cowboys took a 32-23 halftime lead, closing out the last 4:20 of the first half with a 10-3 run keyed by two 3-pointers from Grabau. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
