Kyle Busch Drives To Cup Pole At Bristol

To get the pole for Sunday's 500-lapper, Busch had to ease past brother Kurt, who was second fastest in qualifying at BMS.

All the best drivers have found victory lane at the track over the years, from Fred Lorenzen winning three straight in the early 1960s to Richard Petty and Cale Yarborough combining to win eight straight in the late 1970s, Darrell Waltrip's seven consecutive victories in the 1980s and Rusty Wallace and Dale Earnhardt dominating at the track through the 1990s.

Jones won at Bristol in 2016 and 2017 in the Xfinity Series, so he certainly knows his way around the half-mile track. In all seven, Fords will start in the top 10. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. earned a season-best fourth place starting spot in the No. 17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford.

But the latter order batsmen failed to sustain the tempo and the total fell well below what the openers had promised. Trent Boult , Daniel Christian and Rahul Tewatia bagged two wickets each while Mohammed Shami managed one scalp.

Defending race victor Jimmie Johnson made the 14th-fastest lap in Friday's practice.

Denny Hamlin holds the series' qualifying record at Bristol, lapping the track at 131.668 miles per hour in 2016, but was not among the 24 fastest cars and did not advance out of the first qualifying round. Jones was in the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 Toyota.

All three manufacturers occupied the podium in the first session, as Martin Truex Jr. Allmendinger sustained no visible damage to the body of his Kroger machine but Harvick would be forced to go to a backup auto and to get the Busch Beer Ford ready before qualifying at 4:45 pm.
