Kyle Busch Goes For A Sweep At Bristol….Again
Kyle Busch has already won twice at Bristol Motor Speedway this week. Can he make it a clean sweep by winning again tonight?
Busch has done it before. Back in in the summer of 2010 Busch accomplished the unprecedented three race sweep at Bristol - winning all three of NASCAR's top national touring series in the same week. He will try to pull it off again tonight but has his work cut out for him.
Busch spun out and wrecked during his Cup qualifying run which means he will start last in tonight's Irwin Tools night race. But that has been the only mistake so far this week. Busch won Wednesday night's Camping World Truck Series event and then backed that up by dominating last night's Nationwide Series race leading 228 of the 250 laps run at Bristol.
Denny Hamlin will start on the pole for the 4th time this season. Kurt Busch is on the outside pole followed by Carl Edwards, Brian Vickers and Matt Kenseth. Mark Martin the new substitute driver for Tony Stewart qualified 11th. Martin Truex Jr.'s younger brother Ryan makes his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut - starting 18th.
Here is the complete starting lineup.
