Kyle Busch looking to sweep Bristol's summer weekend for second time

NXS Kyle Busch Scores Food City 300 Pole at Bristol

The rookie turned a lap at 128.082 miles per hour around the high-banked bullring Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway to take the top starting spot for Saturday night's race.

Busch swept the week at the Bristol Motor Speedway, also winning Camping World Truck Series race Wednesday and the Xfinity Series race Friday. Kenseth's edge over Clint Bowyer is just 31 points though.Martin Truex Jr.is the driver to beat for the regular season title, which is worth 15 playoff points.Dale Earnhardt Jr. will race for the final time at Bristol. Jones is taking Kenseth's spot with Joe Gibbs Racing after the season, and the two briefly rubbed fenders while trying to keep up with Busch. It was the 40th career Cup Series win for Busch, who smiled in the face of boos from fans who don't believe Cup Series drivers should compete at the lower levels.

Saturday's Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race will air live beginning at 5:30 p.m. MT (7:30 p.m. ET) on NBC, SiriusXM 90 and PRN. He's collected top-10 finishes in each of his last four races. The No. 20 Toyota will be at its best Saturday night and could benefit from the strong setup offered by teammate Kyle Busch.

Kyle Larson entered the race second in the standings but fell to third at 845 points following a ninth-place finish.

But how Busch won on Friday night was nearly identically scripted as the like the Wednesday night's race; he received a speeding penalty on pit road and was relegated to the back of the pack in 19th on the lead lap. There have just been so many kinds of unique winners this year.

And Pogba was asked after the game whether he was concerned he was about to be sent off when Moss blew for a foul on Olsson. Two minutes latrer, an attempted Swansea attack move broke allowing United to fly forward on a quick counter-attack.

"He's a hardcore racer, he really commits himself to that and he does a really good job that he doesn't let it affect his Cup racing, at all", Jones said.

Rookie Erik Jones will lead the field to the green flag at Bristol Motor Speedway. Last year: Kevin Harvick won despite starting 24th. "This was the first shot that I really had to come really close to it in the Cup Series".

The penalty dropped him back to 19th position at the outset of the second stage on Lap 95. Logano was able to get back onto the lead lap and had moved up to 10th by the time the eighth and final caution came out on Lap 285.

"Every time I've won here or have run real well here, I've always qualified poorly". In addition to 2010, he also won the Truck Series and XFINITY Series races in 2013. The pole is the first of Jones' Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career.
