NASCAR starting lineup at Martinsville: Kyle Busch wins pole

Kyle Busch loves short-track racing and he will start in front for the First Data 500 Sunday. Busch won the pole, his fourth of the year, for Sunday’s race at Martinsville Speedway.

This sets him up nicely to get his third win at the track in his last seven races. He hasn’t finished outside the top 5 in any of those runs and he finished second there earlier this year.

“We’ve been good here the last few years which is nice, especially this time of year being able to come out here and have a pole run, so it feels good,” Busch told NBCSN after his run.

Kevin Harvick, who sits second in NASCAR’s playoff standings behind Busch, finished 13th in qualifying while Chase Elliott will start 21st.

The First Data 500 can be seen at 2:30 p.m. ET Sunday on NBCSN.
