Kyle Busch captures Food City 500 Pole at Bristol Motor Speedway

DFS NASCAR Food City 500 Practice Notes

It's the Food City 500 from Bristol Motor Speedway.

Series champion Martin Truex, Jr. was tenth in practice with Darrell "Bubba" Wallace in the STP Chevrolet placing 21st in practice.

Rounding out the top 10 were AJ Allmendinger (126.204mph), polesitter Kyle Busch (126.129mph), Daniel Suarez (126.112mph), Kasey Kahne (126.079mph), and Jimmie Johnson (126.021mph).

The pace slowed down in the second session, as Ragan's speed of 127.487 miles per hour was the fastest.

Expect plenty of quick laps and quicker tempers today. Kyle Busch leads all active drivers with six Cup wins at Bristol, while brother Kurt has five. Ragan's Front Row Motorsports teammate Michael McDowell (126.295 mph) finished the session in fifth. Allmendinger sustained no visible damage to the body of his Kroger machine but Harvick would be forced to go to a backup vehicle and to get the Busch Beer Ford ready before qualifying at 4:45 pm. The No. 41 team has to go to a backup vehicle and will forfeit their second place starting spot. "We feel this schedule adjustment provides us with a more favorable window to get the Food City 500 completed on Sunday".

"We chose to move the race to a 1 p.m. start after discussing the forecast scenarios with our team of meteorologists, NASCAR and our television partner", Jerry Caldwell, BMS executive vice president and general manager, said. FOX and PRN will broadcast the race.
