Kyle Busch wins Martinsville pole, qualifying results for First Data 500

Kyle Busch, one of the remaining eight hopefuls for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series title, claimed the pole for Sunday’s running of the First Data 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Busch will be joined by Clint Bowyer on the front row for the race at the paperclip track for the race which is scheduled for 500 miles or 263 laps.
