Kyle Busch turns fastest lap at Pocono for 2nd straight pole

Driver Martin Truex Jr. - the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship leader - had qualified the auto on the outside pole on Friday.

The best NASCAR drivers at the Xfinity race called the action.

No chance of a mic drop.

Busch was fastest in Happy Hour practice for the Axalta presents the Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway Saturday.

Busch has suddenly mastered the art of starting first.

His crew chief is beginning to serve a four-race suspension this weekend.

Martin Truex Jr. starts second and Matt Kenseth third for a 1-2-3 start for Toyota.

Brad Keselowski qualified sixth for Sunday and finished second in the final practice session, only 0.040 south of Busch's time.

Wallaces laps during NASCARs first practice session were amplified because of the little slice of history he made at Pocono Raceway. Wallace got his shot when Aric Almirola was injured in a fiery wreck at Kansas and is still recovering.

Team owner Richard Petty, who drove the 43, counseled Wallace in the garage and said it was a series of events that put him in the seat. "The King is over there smiling, I hope, maybe a little grin". Factor in that he's amidst a 29-race winless streak dating to last July and it gives the appearance that not "everything is great" - the expression Kyle Busch coined following a pit road scrap with Joey Logano earlier this season. But it was Senna, Hamilton's favorite driver, who was the target. "I think there was also a reason not to with going to Pocono and Michigan, Sonoma and then Daytona". "That's common sense. I enjoy it". Its big and its got to be talked about and I understand that.”.

"How'd I do? It was fun". He won races at every active Cup track except Pocono and Charlotte Motor Speedway. He started 13th and finished 12th in the rain-shortened event previous year.

Busch will go for his first checkered flag with a backup crew. "We live and die by that rule book I guess, so the consequences are there". The fans with photos and Sharpies all missed Dale Earnhardt Jr. stroll by Wallace on the way to his auto. He swept Pocono in 2014.

He turned a fast lap of 175.421 miles per hour.

"Circumstances", Petty said. "We had to make it work with us, with Ford, with (sponsor) Smithfield". He has an average starting position of 1.2, average finish of 3.0 and is the current track qualifying record holder in an ARCA vehicle.
