Kyle Busch Ready To Stomp At Bristol
Kyle Busch is looking for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at Bristol Motor Speedway with a win. He has been bad fast so far this weekend.
In qualifying on Friday, Busch set a new track record breaking the mark last set 10 years ago by Ryan Newman. In 2003, Newman was the first driver to break the 15 second mark with a time of 14.908 seconds at the world’s fastest half mile.
On Friday, Busch went even faster, turning a time of 14.813 with an average speed of 129.535 mph to win the pole starting position for the Food City 500 Sprint Cup Series Race at Bristol. Busch was also the fastest in both of Saturday’s practice sessions. He is a five time winner at the track.
Kasey Kahne led the most laps last week at Las Vegas and will start on the front row alongside Busch. Busch’s teammate Denny Hamlin starts third with Brian Vickers fourth and Paul Menard rounding out the top five starters.
