Busch brothers starting 1-2 in Texas Cup race

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The Busch brothers will start on the front row at Texas on Saturday night.

Kyle Busch set a track qualifying record with a lap of 196.299 mph Friday night to earn his first NASCAR Sprint Cup pole at Texas. It is his second pole in his Toyota this season.

That was all that could knock Kurt Busch off the pole after his lap of 195.688 mph in his Chevrolet.

The only time the brothers started on the front row together was at Las Vegas in 2009, when Kyle also had the pole position and won that race. Kurt finished 23rd that day.

Series points leader Jimmie Johnson, who won at Texas last fall, starts seventh after a lap of 194.503 mph.
