Kurt Busch Sits on the Pole at Home in Las Vegas for First Time Ever

Las Vegan Kurt Busch sits on the Shelby American pole as he blisters the Las Vegas Motor Speedway's track record with a top speed of 188.719 mph. This is Busch's first start within the top-10 at his home track and it was apparent in the media center that he was very emotional and affected by the accomplishment as he fought back tears.

Kurt's brother, Kyle Busch, won the pole and race last season. This will be the third straight year that a Busch brother will be starting from the front. What's even more cool is that Steve Addington, Kurt's crew chief, was the one piloting Kyle's car in this race last season.

Tough battle between the brothers, but hopefully it unfolds better than the gangstar attitude a few in Las Vegas get to roll their shine on.
