Busch Qualifies 19th in Kansas
October 4, 2013
Kurt Busch will start 19th in Sunday's Hollywood Casino 400 Sprint Cup race.
In Friday's time trials at Kansas Speedway, Busch's No. 78 Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Chevrolet toured the 1.5-mile oval in 29.272 seconds at 184.477 miles per hour.
"We're not happy with our 19th qualifying position, but we've been there before and know what it takes to get our Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Chevy to the front," said Busch. "We were pleased with the way the car ran in race trim during Thursday's test. With the anticipated temperature change we need to get dialed in for Sunday's race during Saturday's two practice sessions."
The pole winner was Kevin Harvick (28.796 at 187.526). Rounding out the top-10 in order were: Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth, Paul Menard, Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin.
Sunday's race will be televised on ESPN, beginning with a 60-minute prerace show at 11 a.m. MT (noon CT).
