Kyle Busch ran a 128.822 miles per hour around the half-mile oval to win his second pole of the season and 29th of his career. "Just have to keep that confidence going as much as I can, but we still have to work hard".

Bristol has been a track where the best tend to shine. His brother, Kyle Busch, a six-time victor at the Tennessee venue, was fourth-fastest, and Kyle Larson rounded out the top five in preparation for Sunday's Food City 500 (2 p.m. ET, FOX, PRN, SiriusXM).

Busch was in the midst of a late run when his No. 41 got into the inside wall and suffered significant damage.

"That was different", he said with a laugh. I found out the fun way.

Kevin Harvick, who was forced to a backup vehicle after a crash during practice on Friday, turned his first laps in the second auto finishing 16th overall at 128.134 miles per hour.

Gragson, who also runs in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports, was strong throughout Friday, capping it off with an impressive performance in qualifying. Harvick's suspension broke in practice on Friday and his vehicle hit the outside wall hard.
