Kurt Busch Qualifies 19th in Bristol
March 15, 2013
Kurt Busch will start 19th in Sunday's Food City 500 Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
In Friday afternoon's time trials at the high-banked, half-mile oval, Busch's No. 78 Furniture Row/Beautyrest Chevrolet recorded a time and speed of 15.062 seconds at 127.393 miles per hour.
"The car was loose and that pretty much did us in," said Busch. "We had a decent practice earlier in the day and we'll continue to work on our race-trim setup during our two practice sessions tomorrow. Having a balance between patience and being aggressive is what this race is all about."
The pole winner was Kyle Busch (129.535 mph). Rounding out the top-10 in order were: Kasey Kahne, Denny Hamlin, Brian Vickers, Paul Menard, Jamie McMurray, Brad Keselowski, Tony Stewart, Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano.
Sunday's race will be televised on FOX, beginning with a 30-minute prerace show at 10:30 a.m. MT (12:30 p.m. ET).
