Kyle Busch has solved the Bristol Motor Speedway puzzle six times en route to Cup wins. Kyle Busch is growing exhausted of stock auto racing's governing body trying to manufacture tighter competition in the annual All-Star race at the expense of the Cup Series' heavy hitters.

Martin Truex Jr. finished second in the session at 128.952 miles per hour in the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota. "He seemed to say that he missed the corner a little bit more maybe than I did, but you know all in all it was a great day for the Busch brothers to be up front and looking forward to starting the race on Sunday".

"If not, we'll just have to play games with our computer and figure out what's going to be best on Sunday".

Kyle Busch earned the pole.

"Two Buschs on the front pole ain't too bad", Kurt Busch said.

Rounding out the Top 10 were David Ragan, Joey Logano, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Jimmie Johnson and Chase Elliott.

But he doesn't want it to come at the expense of those who should be rewarded for the work they put in setting up their cars during the week.

Series champion Martin Truex, Jr. was tenth in practice with Darrell "Bubba" Wallace in the STP Chevrolet placing 21st in practice.

Trevor Bayne qualified 33rd in the No. 6 Roush Fenway Ford and Chad Finchum will start 38th in the No. 66 Carl Long-owned Toyota.

The MENCS regulars will qualify for the Bush Beans Pole Award late Friday afternoon and then look to dial in their cars with a practice session tomorrow morning, followed by qualifying for the Xfinity series and the 1:00pm running of the FItzgerald Glider Kits 300 race. Three Johnson City drivers - Paul Lewis, Herman Beam and George Green - and three members of the Utsman family of Bluff City - Sherman, Layman and Dub Utsman - started the first Bristol Cup Series race, the 1961 Volunteer 500.
