NNS Pole report: Kyle Busch wins track record third Nationwide pole at Texas Motor Speedway


Will Rowdy achieve redemption in Texas by winning the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge? He's given himself a boost by qualifying P1 at the Great American Speedway. Points leader Elliott Sadler, who says he's having the most fun racing that he's had since his South Boston days, sits on the outside pole. To make things interesting for spectators, Kevin Harvick starts on the second row in third position. Rookie Austin Dillon qualified fourth and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will be starting fifth.

In 242 Nationwide races, Busch started from the first position 25 times, fourth all-time.
