KURT BUSCH, NO. 1 GEARWRENCH CAMARO ZL1 1LE – Pole Winner
IT WAS A VERY FAST RACE CAR FOR KURT BUSCH – 28th CAREER POLE. JIMMIE JOHNSON DOWN HERE GIVING YOU A HARD TIME, YOU BUMPED HIM OFF THE POLE THERE. IS THIS CAR IN MORE RACE TRIM OR QUALIFYING TRIM WITH ALL THAT SPEED?
“I’m just so proud of Matt McCall and all our guys and the way we have to communicate right now, and get through everything as far as those last-minute details and those fine adjustments. But, wow, what a Chevrolet brigade up front. This is pretty sweet! GEARWRENCH is on our car only a few times a year and I really want to push them up front. This is an awesome pole. I was more geared up, in my mind, towards downforce and being ready for 600 miles, so this means Matt McCall has something up his sleeve and we should be good tonight. This is a great run and happy birthday, Chip.!”
· This marks Kurt Busch’s 28th career pole in the NASCAR Cup Series and his first for Chip Ganassi Racing.
