Kyle Busch earns his second consecutive NASCAR Cup pole with fastest lap at Pocono

Kyle Busch turned a lap of 179.151 mph on Friday to win the pole at Pocono Raceway for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race on Sunday.

Busch won the pole at Dover International Speedway last week as well. His run at Dover was derailed when a tire came off the No. 18 Toyota during a pit stop.

Busch crew chief Adams Stevens, tire carrier Kenny Barber and tire changer Jake Seminara were suspended four races for the infraction and will not be at Pocono. He won races at every active Cup track except Pocono and Charlotte Motor Speedway. Race engineer Ben Beshore is the interim crew chief.

Martin Truex Jr. starts second and Matt Kenseth third for a 1-2-3 start for Toyota....
