Kurt Busch on pole for Coca-Cola 600, qualifying results

Kurt Busch set the fast time in the first qualifying session since NASCAR’s return to the track. In qualifying for Sunday’s running of the Coca-Cola 600, Busch ran a lap of 181.269 mph to claim the pole ahead of Jimmie Johnson.

This is Busch’s 28th career pole but his first at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Two drivers had issues in qualifying with Matt DiBenedetto hitting the wall in turn four forcing him to a backup car and Aric Almirola who spun but did not appear to damage his car in turn four.

FOX will have coverage of the race starting at 6:00 pm ET with the green flag set for 6:28 pm ET. PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio will have the radio call.
