WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) -- Kyle Busch has won the Sprint Cup pole
at Watkins Glen International.
Busch qualified last after posting the best time in practice.
He shattered the track record with a lap at 126.421 mph and deprived
Richard Petty Motorsports of a front row sweep.
It's Busch's first pole of the season and first on a road course.
AJ Allmendinger was second, just ahead of RPM teammate Marcos
Ambrose. Jimmie Johnson and defending race winner Juan Pablo
Montoya complete the top five.
Teammates Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart, points leader Carl
Edwards, Martin Truex Jr. and Regan Smith round out the top 10.
WATKINS GLEN, New York (AP) -- Subbing for injured Penske Racing
teammate Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch held off Jimmie Johnson on a green-white-checkered finish to win the Nationwide Zippo 200 at
Watkins Glen International.
Busch beat his Sprint Cup nemesis by nearly a second for his
third victory in 12 Nationwide races.
He also deprived brother Kyle of his 50th career victory, which would have broken a tie with Mark Martin for the most in series history.
Joey Logano edged Kyle Busch for third, and Carl Edwards was fifth.
