Kyle & Kurt Busch Fastest Qualifiers For NASCAR Shelby 427 Las Vegas


Las Vegas “Homeboys” Kyle & Kurt Busch posted the fastest qualifying times this afternoon for the upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Shelby 427 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 1 at 12:30 p.m. (3:30 p.m. ET). Unfortunately, Kyle Busch will be dropping to the rear of the field at the start of the race due to an engine change that took place earlier in the day. Just 5 laps into the initial practice session early Friday, Kyle Busch’s #18 M & M’s Toyota suffered a mechanical engine malfunction that forced his team to replace the motor prior to qualifying. Apparently the backup motor was a secret weapon they didn’t know they had because Kyle was easily the fastest car in the field qualifying at nearly 186mph.

Three-time, defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Jimmie Johnson’s #48 Lowe’s/Kobalt Tools Chevrolet will thus move into the pole position, as NASCAR does not allow the #2 qualifier to move to the #1 spot. The inside row of cars will all just move up one spot putting the #3 qualifier, Johnson, in the pole position spot. Everyone else that qualified on the inside lane will then just move up as Kyle Busch will move to the tail end of that inside lane.
