Kyle Busch won the Coors Light Pole Award for the BUBBA burger 250.

Kyle Busch drove his #18 Toyota to the Coors Light Pole Award Friday afternoon during NBC-12 Pole Qualifying for tonight’s BUBBA burger 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway. 

“Sitting on the pole here is fun,” said Busch, commenting on his third career Nationwide Series pole.  “We love coming here. We’ve had a good car so far. We want to have a good clean run. Our car seems to run good here.”

Busch will start from the pole Friday in defense of his win in last year’s Spring Nationwide Series race. Busch went to win the Sprint Cup Series race last May as well, completing the Richmond weekend sweep.

Joining Busch on the front row is Reed Sorenson in the #32 Dollar General Toyota with a speed of 123.745mph.  Carl Edwards, who had to overcome a slide in Turn 2 on his fast lap, put his #60 Fastenal Ford in the third starting spot with a qualifying speed of 123.683mph.
