Labonte Texas Star

19344Jpg
JUSTIN, Tx. - Bobby Labonte won his second consecutive Bud pole at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday after he turned a fast lap of 193.903 mph in the Interstate Batteries Chevrolet.

Labonte, who will also run Saturday's O'Reilly 300 Busch race, thrilled the home crowd with his fast lap.

"It stuck like glue," said Labonte. "I don't think it could have gone any better today. We did one lap in practice in qualifying setup. Then we did one more to make it a little faster.

"I think we have a great race car. Good things will hopefully come from today. We had a good qualifying run and hopefully that will give us some inspiration for a good practice tomorrow."

Kasey Kahne was second fastest followed by his Evernham Motorsports teammate Bill Elliott, who is running a limited schedule this season. Greg Biffle and Joe Nemechek rounded out the Top 5.

Casey Mears, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Rusty Wallace completed the first ten qualifiers.

Sunday's Samsugn/Radio Shack 500 will take the green flag at 1 p.m. (ET).
