Busch Snags Richmond Pole

37946Jpg
RICHMOND, Va. - Kyle Busch’s only NASCAR Busch Series victory at Richmond International Raceway came when he started from the pole. He’ll be looking to pad that statistic in Friday night’s Emerson Radio 250.

Busch was a late qualifier Friday afternoon and snagged the Busch Pole Award with a fast lap of 126.399 mph. He edged Matt Kenseth, who turned a fast lap of 126.260 mph around the .75-mile oval.

Busch’s pole and victory came in his first Busch Series start at Richmond during his rookie season in 2004. He has two other top-five Busch Series finishes here.

Matt Kenseth has enjoyed a great deal of success in NASCAR Busch Series competition at Richmond, but has never won here. Kenseth has three runner-up finishes and five-third place runs in 15 career starts here.

Jamie McMurray qualified third, followed by Ryan Newman and Denny Hamlin. Kevin Harvick is going for his fourth Busch Series victory at Richmond in the last five races. Harvick, who qualified eighth, finished fourth in the spring race at Richmond in May, a race won by Clint Bowyer.

Bowyer qualified 11th Friday. Carl Edwards, who has a 654-point lead over Harvick in the Busch Series standings, qualified sixth.

The green flag drops on the Emerson Radio 250 shortly after 8 p.m.
