NASCAR at Pocono 2017 Qualifying Results: Kyle Busch Wins Pole Position

"I think it was just a mishap that happened on the track and we move on", said Busch. I thought we had a really good auto for today, just disappointed that we didn't even make a whole lap.

Busch and Truex were the dominant cars during last Sunday's Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, frequently separating themselves from the field.

For Rhodes, it's his second career CWTS pole and his first of the 2017 season.

More than a few drivers likely need a win at Pocono or at one of the final regular-season races this year with 12 of the 16 playoff berths already secured. The crew members are officially Joe Gibbs Racing employees and were suspended by the organization that owns Busch's team.

"No, just got to keep going", Busch said when asked whether he had any worries about starting next to Truex.

Martin Truex Jr. will start second. As for he and Truex, Busch acknowledged they did talk earlier this weekend and doesn't believe there is anything negative between them.

Afterward, Busch's crew chief, Adam Stevens, had a confrontation with two members of Truex's pit, which JGR supplies and employs.

Jamie McMurray will start third with Denny Hamlin and Ryan Blaney rounding out the top five. Completing the top 10 were Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Daniel Suarez, Erik Jones, and Joey Logano.

Rhodes was able to do it again in the final round of qualifying with a pole time of 52.931 seconds (170.033mph), edging Kyle Busch by 0.011 hundredths.

NASCAR will try the two-day show again next week at Watkins Glen and October 29 at Martinsville.
