Busch captures the Food City 250 pole

[media-credit name=”Ed Coombs” align=”alignright” width=”230″][/media-credit]Kyle Busch captured the pole for Friday nights Nationwide Series Food City 250 at Bristol Motor Speedway with a lap of 120.083 MPH (15.979 secs).

Joey Logano qualified second, Elliott Sadler third, Kenny Wallace fourth and Jason Leffler qualified fifth.

Kurt Busch declined an offer from Penske Racing to replace teammate Brad Keselowski, who will be sitting out his fifth consecutive Nationwide Series race as he recovers from a broken ankle.  Busch wanted to focus on the Sprint Cup Series No. 22 instead.

“I thought the best opportunity for us to get our Cup program where it needed to be was to focus just 100 percent on it,” Busch said.

Parker Kligerman will be replacing Keselowski in the No. 22, he qualified 12th.
