Dover, DE - RIS - Kyle Busch takes the Pedigree Petcare #18 to the Pole for the AAA “400” Drive for Autism. With a speed of 158.954 it will be Busch’s first  Color’s Light Pole start for the season, and first Pole start at Dover International Speedway.

Third place starter will be Daniel Suarez in the #19 Stanley Toyota, Outside of Suarez will be Matt Kenseth wheeling the #20 Toyota Care Toyota. Kyle Larson will take the Green in the fifth starting position in his #42 Target Chevrolet. Kurt Busch will start 6th in the HAAS Automation Monster Energy Ford.

Starting 7th is a teammate of Martin Truex, Jr, and that is #77 Erik Jones the chauffeur of the 5-Hour Energy Extra Strength Toyota. Brad Keselowski will make this run starting 8th in the #2 Wirth Ford.

The Sun held up many drivers, as many waited for the Monster Mile concrete to be under the clouds. The wait was not to help in any of the qualification rounds as the clouds were fleeting and with the new packages on the setups for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series a cooler surface was what everyone was is hesitation mode for.

So, The Coors Light Pole winner is Kyle Busch and much more congenial as he spoke about his waiting and was quite happy with the results. He explained his thoughts on the emotion he displayed and would hope that he would not repeat that. He just got caught up in the loss and wanted to add to his wins in the Coke 600 as he really considers that a marquee event every year. He spoke about how passionate he is behind the wheel and he fully knows he needs work there, but it is what it is. His family and friends well know that he is a much different soul, a different person when he is not racing. I can live with that, how about you?

See you at the track.
