Young Kurt Busch

Kurt Busch placed his No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet SS on the pole position for Sunday’s Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway, round five of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. A fast lap of 38.889 seconds (185.124 mph) earned Busch his first pole of 2015 and 17th of his career.  This is his fourth pole in 22 races at the 2.0-mile facility for Busch, a track record.

“I just wanted to focus on the car and my lap and the line that I needed to run,” said Busch after the qualifying session.  “I felt confident with the cars ability to have that speed.  You just don’t have to over think it.  Luckily I was able to pull that off and not over think it and deliver for my team.  Thanks to everybody with Haas Automation, Gene Haas, number one and Chevrolet, Monster Energy, it feels good.”
