Kyle Busch will start from pole at Coke Zero 400

Kyle Busch has scored his first superspeedway pole position with the fastest time in qualifying for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.

Busch has scored poles at short, intermediate and even road tracks, but this is his first at either Daytona or Talladega.

“I never thought I’d ever get one, but I guess never say never,” he said.

In a further good sign for Busch’s prospects is that he is surrounded by Toyotas with five in the top seven, including Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth who he will share the front row with.

Marcos Ambrose will start from 25th, but is confident of moving up through the pack.

“We’re looking forward to tomorrow night as we had a good car in the draft yesterday and I felt really comfortable,” said Ambrose.

“We’ve made improvements to our car and it feels more underneath me than it did when we were here for the 500, so we’re excited for our chances.”
