Kyle Busch is following up his win at Texas with a pole at Bristol.

Busch edged out his brother Kurt Busch for the Busch Pole Award during Bush’s Beans Pole Day on Friday. Yes, that entire sentence is 100 percent true and not fake news. If only former President George W. Bush was in attendance.

Kyle Busch, the series points leader, got his first win of the season last week at Texas. He held off a late charge from Kevin Harvick, who didn’t attempt a qualifying run because he crashed his primary car during practice on Friday morning.

Kyle Busch has six wins in 25 starts at Bristol including last year’s August night race. But Friday’s pole position is just the second of his Cup Series career. He became the first driver in NASCAR history to win the Truck Series, Xfinity Series and Cup Series races in the same weekend when he pulled off the threepeat in 2010.
