Travis Pastrana Earns First Pole

American School graduate Travis Pastrana earned his first Nationwide Series pole this past weekend, and he did it at one of the most famous tracks in Nascar, Talladega Superspeedway.  Unfortunately, Travis's good starting position in the race didn't guarantee him a good finish, as an accident left him in 36th place for the race.  He currently sits in 15th place in the overall season standings and will return to action this Friday night at Darlington.
