Miller Time In Michigan

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Kurt Busch drove his Penske Racing Miller Lite Dodge to the top spot in Friday afternoon's qualifying session for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Helluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

Busch turned a lap of 189.984 mph around the two-mile speedway to earn the pole for Sunday's 15th race of the season.

It was Busch's second pole of the season and 12th career Sprint Cup pole.

The former series champion earned his first career pole at Michigan with his previous best starting spot third.

"It was a hell of a good lap," joked Busch, making reference to Sunday's race sponsor. "We've been feeling very good about things lately and running well so this is just another example of how hard this team works."

Jamie McMurray qualified second and will start his Earnhardt Ganassi Racing Chevrolet outside the front row.

Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne and Jeff Burton rounded out the top five.

Jeff Gordon, Denny Hamlin, Ryan Newman, David Reutimann and Juan Pablo Montoya completed the first ten qualifiers.

Three drivers failed to qualify for the race: Michael Waltrip, Dave Blaney and Johnny Sauter.

Saturday will see the Sprint Cup Series take part in two practice sessions as final tune-ups for Sunday's race.

Sunday's Hellua Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 is slated for a 1:15 p.m. ET green flag.
