With all three cars in the top five, Penske Racing had plum pit picks for Saturday's Zippo 200 (2:15 p.m. ET, ABC).

Coors Light Pole-Sitter Sam Hornish Jr. and the No. 12 team chose the first pit stall heading into Turn 1. It's actually the second pit stall as the first and 43rd stalls are not used in NASCAR Nationwide Series competition.

Running the No. 48 car, Joey Logano and his team chose the fourth stall, which is the third one closes to the Turn 1 exit of pit road at the Watkins Glen International.

Brad Keselowski, driving the No. 22, chose the 38th pit stall, five cars away from the entrance to pit road at Turn 7. There's an opening in front of him, and across the way is new father Justin Allgaier and the No. 31 team in the 37th stall.

The other opening on pit road is at the start/finish line. Kyle Busch, the second-fastest qualifier, takes the 25th stall with the opening in front of him. New York native Regan Smith is across the opening in the 23rd stall.

Joe Gibbs Racing's championship contenders Brian Vickers and Elliott Sadler have chosen the 16th and sixth pit stalls respectively.
