Kurt Busch Wins Pocono Pole
LONG POND, Pa. (AP) -- Kurt Busch had made it back-to-back poles, turning a lap of 171.579 mph at Pocono Raceway.

Busch's only two poles of the season have come the last two weeks. He started first last week at Kansas Speedway, then topped Jeff Gordon in one of the final runs of Saturday's qualifying.

Paul Menard will start second and Gordon third. Denny Hamlin and Regan Smith round out the top five.

Busch damaged his No. 22 Dodge in Friday's practice and was forced to a backup car. He is a two-time winner at Pocono and is sixth this season in the Sprint Cup points standings.
