Kyle Busch won the pole for tonight’s race at Richmond Raceway – his 10th and final Xfinity Series race of the year.
Busch claimed his seventh pole of the season with a speed of 119.268 mph around the .75-mile track. It is his 64th Xfinity pole.
“I wish I was holding anything back (in the first two rounds),” Busch told NBCSN. “I don’t know why we wouldn’t fire off on the first lap in any other round. We had to make two laps every single time. Obviously, that was not really built into the strategy, let’s say. But it worked out.”
Busch’s seven poles lead all Xfinity drivers this season. His six career poles at Richmond lead all drivers.
Earnhardt won his last Xfinity start at Richmond in April 2016.
Morgan Shepherd failed to qualify.
The race is set to air at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
