Why is Kyle Busch not racing?
Kyle Busch is not racing this weekend at Pocono.
The NASCAR star is one of the most prolific drivers in the sport’s history and has won a record-tying four straight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championships. But he won’t have a seat in the field when the green flag drops Sunday at Pocono Raceway (1 p.m. ET on NBCSN).
Busch, 36, suffered a broken leg and foot in an accident during last week’s Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway. He was airlifted to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, where he underwent surgery to repair his injuries.
“I am still trying to piece everything together but I believe that we were running around 10th or 11th place,” Busch said in a statement released Wednesday by Joe Gibbs Racing, his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team. “I was just trying to make something out of nothing when it happened.”
Kyle Busch is not racing at the NASCAR race this weekend. He said he’s not feeling good, but some people think it’s because there’s a storm coming.
The track is called Pocono Raceway and it’s in Pennsylvania. The last time Kyle raced here, he crashed into another car and broke his leg in 20 places.
A doctor had to put metal rods and screws in his leg so it could heal properly. Now that the healing is done and everything’s back to normal, he wants to go racing again!
But Kyle’s team owner said no because it’s too risky for him to race right now. He wants to wait until the next race at Watkins Glen International Speedway in New York State on August 7th.
Kyle has been racing cars since he was little, but only since 2013 has he been driving in NASCAR races full-time (instead of just part-time).
Kyle Busch has been sidelined for the last two weeks because of a broken leg and broken foot. He’s out for at least three more weeks, maybe longer.
Busch suffered the injuries in a crash at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 12, when he was T-boned by Michael McDowell after he had been spun by Ryan Reed. The wreck was one of several incidents that led to NASCAR taking action against teams for what it deemed illegal modifications to their cars.
Busch is expected back in the car next month at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but there’s no guarantee he’ll be fully healthy by then. He could be racing with a cast or brace on his right leg until the end of season — or longer — if doctors have concerns about his ability to handle the G forces involved in stock car racing while injured.
The injury comes at an unfortunate time for Busch, who has struggled this year and sits 19th in points after finishing eighth at Phoenix International Raceway last weekend. Busch hasn’t won since March 24 at Bristol Motor Speedway and finished outside the top 10 six times before Phoenix — including four finishes of 20th or worse.
Kyle Busch is out of the race at the Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday night, but he’s not injured.
He pulled out of the Night Race because he wanted to spend time with his family.
Busch is married and has a daughter, but as he explained in a tweet, he didn’t want to miss her birthday:
“My wife and I have been married for almost 10 years and we have one child together,” Busch wrote on Twitter after pulling out of Friday night’s race. “She is my life.”
Busch said that his wife had asked him to be home for their daughter’s birthday party.
Who won the pole at Talladega today?
The pole winner at Talladega was Kevin Harvick, who led 143 of the 188 laps. He won by more than three seconds over Joey Logano, who took second place. Kyle Busch finished third.
Who was on pole at Talladega?
Kevin Harvick, who won the race itself, is also the current Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series points leader. He’s coming off a win at Kansas Speedway last week and has two wins this season already. He’s going for his third win of 2017 when he takes on Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama later this month.
The pole for the GEICO 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway was won by Kevin Harvick.
Harvick took the top spot in qualifying with a speed of 188.569 mph. This is his third pole of the season and second at Talladega. He also won the pole for last year’s spring race at Talladega, which he went on to win.
“This is one of those tracks where it’s very hard to get through one lap,” Harvick said. “You’ve got to get through two laps and three laps. I think we’ll be good tomorrow.”
Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the pole for Sunday’s Alsco 300 at Talladega Superspeedway.
Earnhardt turned a lap of 195.979 mph in his No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet to claim his first NASCAR Cup Series pole since 2008 at Dover International Speedway.
The race will be broadcast on FS1 beginning at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 15.
Talladega Speedway is a NASCAR sanctioned oval race track located in Lincoln, Alabama. It has been the site of NASCAR’s Talladega 500 every year since 1969. The “400” refers to the approximate length of the track, measured at 2.66 miles (4.28 km).
Talladega was originally constructed with a length of 2 miles (3.2 km), but was lengthened over the years to its present length of 2.66 miles (4.28 km). Since the 2016 season, the track has been banking through turns 1 and 2 at 32 degrees, while turn 3 has a 9 degree banking angle; this makes it the steepest sports venue in North America and one of the steepest in the world.
The track was originally constructed under the guidance of Bill France Sr., who wanted to build a superspeedway like Daytona International Speedway but with more banking and longer straightaways; this would allow for higher speeds and create more passing opportunities for drivers.
In 1969, Talladega Superspeedway held its first race on May 4th as part of a 200-mile event that included Daytona International Speedway; Johnson City Motor Speedway; Jacksonville
Who’s on the pole for sunday’s race at Talladega?
Sunday’s race at Talladega Superspeedway is always a wild one.
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has a number of drivers who are considered the “best on restrictor plates,” but it’s hard to know who will start on the pole for Sunday’s race.
The pole winner in each of last year’s plate races was different, as Brad Keselowski won at Daytona and Kyle Busch won at Talladega. In 2016, Carl Edwards won both plate races.
In 2015, Kevin Harvick won at Daytona while Kurt Busch won at Talladega. In 2014, Joey Logano won at Daytona while Dale Earnhardt Jr. won at Talladega.
Here’s what we know about this year’s pole:
Kyle Busch has been on the pole for three straight races and four out of the last five races overall dating back to last year’s fall event at Charlotte Motor Speedway when he qualified second but started first due to a late rain delay and went on to win his first race since 2013 (a span of 113 races). He also started from the front row in both plate races last year (third at Daytona and second at Talladega) before winning
The first domino has fallen in the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs.
Kevin Harvick grabbed the pole for Sunday’s race at Talladega Superspeedway, and he’ll start alongside Team Penske teammate Joey Logano. Denny Hamlin will start third, followed by Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Ryan Blaney and Kurt Busch.
It’s an all-Hendrick Motorsports front row, as Jimmie Johnson starts fifth and Chase Elliott sixth. Hendrick cars have won the last four races at Talladega (Johnson three times), but they’ve had fewer than half of their cars in the top 20 at the end of each of those races (two or three).
Kyle Larson has been fast all weekend at Talladega, but he was unable to get a good qualifying lap together on Friday and will start seventh Sunday. Brad Keselowski starts eighth, followed by Clint Bowyer and Kevin Harvick’s other teammate: Kurt Busch.
Kurt Busch’s car blew up during practice on Friday morning while he was running second fastest behind Harvick. The team made repairs overnight and returned to qualifying trim later in the day after NASCAR allowed them to make changes to
Dale Earnhardt Jr., who won the pole at Talladega in April, is once again on top of the starting grid. He’ll be joined by Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick and Jimmie Johnson in the front row.
The rest of the field will be set by the lap times from Friday’s qualifying session. The fastest 32 cars will be locked into the field after that, followed by another 40 spots for cars that ran laps within 0.4 seconds of the fastest time. Any other eligible cars not already in will have to qualify through a last-chance qualifier on Saturday morning.
Jimmie Johnson, who won last week at Kansas, is on the pole. He’s joined by Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch in the second row.
The third row features Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch. The fourth row has Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards and Joey Logano.
The fifth row features Ryan Newman, Kasey Kahne and Martin Truex Jr. The sixth row has Aric Almirola, Jamie McMurray and Casey Mears. The seventh row has Danica Patrick, Clint Bowyer and Greg Biffle.
Joey Gase will start from the rear after failing post-qualifying inspection for excessive ride height during his qualifying attempt on Thursday afternoon.

Who got the pole in NASCAR today?
Kyle Busch. He’s going to win this race, too.
But don’t take my word for it. Take his.
“I think we’ve got a really good shot of winning,” Busch said after setting the top qualifying time during Saturday’s Coors Light Pole Qualifying at Bristol Motor Speedway (7:30 p.m., FS1). “We have a great team and we’re going to take it home.”
The pole for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway was won by Kyle Busch of Joe Gibbs Racing.
The pole was Busch’s second of the season and his third at New Hampshire. He qualified on the pole three times in 2017, but he hasn’t won a Cup Series race since last August’s Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Alex Bowman will start alongside Busch on the front row for Sunday’s Overton’s 301. Bowman qualified second for the first time in his career, but it was his first time starting on the front row in his four-year career.
Kyle Larson will start third in his Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 after qualifying third for the fifth time this season. Denny Hamlin also qualified third for Sunday’s race with Austin Dillon starting fourth in his No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Chase Elliott and Clint Bowyer completed the top five qualifiers with Bowyer’s No. 14 Ford Fusion earning its best starting position this season after qualifying sixth.
Ryan Blaney will start seventh while Kurt Busch will start 10th after making contact with another car entering pit road during qualifying that forced him to stop and repair damage to his car before
Kyle Busch won the pole for the NASCAR All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
It’s the second time this season that Busch has won a pole. He also earned one at Kansas Speedway earlier this year.
Mark Martin qualified second, followed by Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch, Jamie McMurray and Tony Stewart.
The event is scheduled for Saturday night on SPEED Channel at 7:30 p.m. ET
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday afternoon was the first for Martin Truex Jr. since he broke his back in a crash at Kansas Speedway in May.
Truex had been out of action for more than two months but dominated the final practice session on Friday and was fastest in qualifying as well. He will start from the pole alongside Matt Crafton and Ty Dillon, who were second and third fastest respectively.
Truex won this race last year after Kevin Harvick nudged Joey Coulter into the wall on lap five. Truex then took advantage of the chaos to take over the lead and win by 8.5 seconds over Johnny Sauter.
Kevin Harvick starts fourth while Erik Jones starts fifth ahead of Ryan Blaney, Timothy Peters, Johnny Sauter and Matt Crafton in sixth place position.

How is NASCAR starting lineup determined?
How is NASCAR starting lineup determined?
The starting order for a NASCAR event is determined by the qualifying speeds of each car. The fastest cars are at the front of the field, and slower ones are placed further back.
Qualifying is done in a timed session where drivers can set their best lap time on a track that has already been prepped and prepared by NASCAR officials. The qualifying session gives teams a chance to fine-tune their cars before they get into competition with other drivers.
It’s also a chance for drivers to gain an advantage over their competitors by practicing in advance of an upcoming race weekend. Some teams even bring in additional personnel to help make sure that everything goes smoothly during this practice session. Drivers may also qualify their cars at other tracks before heading back to their home track for its own qualifying session, which takes place before each race weekend begins.
How is NASCAR starting lineup determined?
The first thing you need to know about the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starting lineup is that it’s not determined by a strict speed ranking. Drivers are ranked according to their average finish position in races during the previous season, with the driver who had the best average finish being ranked first and so on down the line.
The second thing you need to know is that this ranking doesn’t mean much at all because there are many ways for drivers to get into trouble on race day and see their positions fall dramatically in the standings. For example, a driver could start from pole position and lead every lap but still end up in 20th place if he’s involved in several crashes and spins out at least once during the race.
This brings us to our third point: The starting lineup changes frequently as accidents occur (or don’t) during each race. As such, there are no guarantees that you’ll see any particular driver at or near the front of the field on Sunday afternoon at Daytona or Talladega or Charlotte Motor Speedway or anywhere else where NASCAR holds events.
NASCAR starting lineup is determined on the basis of qualifying. This is a process where drivers are given a chance to show their speed in a qualifying lap. The fastest driver has to start from pole position, while others will be given positions one by one from 2nd to 42nd.
In NASCAR, the starting lineup is determined on the basis of qualifying. This is a process where drivers are given a chance to show their speed in a qualifying lap. The fastest driver has to start from pole position, while others will be given positions one by one from 2nd to 42nd.
There are two types of qualifying sessions: time trials and knockout qualifying. In time trials, all drivers take turns on track and try out their best times until we reach the top-40 cutoff line (or 43rd if there’s more than 40 cars). The top-40 cars move on to knockout qualifying where they will have four laps to post their final time before being knocked out based on their average speed in those four laps only.
The NASCAR starting lineup is determined on the basis of a qualifying session. This session takes place on Saturday (for Sprint Cup and Xfinity) and Sunday (for Truck).
The qualifying session consists of three rounds. Each driver has two laps to set their best time, with the fastest 12 drivers advancing to the second round, then the top six progressing to Round 3, and finally the pole winner being decided in a shoot-out.
The results of each qualifying session are determined by taking the average lap time of all four laps driven during each round. The driver who sets a faster average lap time than anyone else advances to the next round. If two or more drivers tie for a particular spot, they will be separated by hundredths of seconds – i.e., if two drivers have identical averages, they will be separated by hundredths of seconds earned during their respective rounds – so if one driver set an average lap time of 20.000 seconds while another did so at 20:001 seconds, he would be placed higher than his rival due to having been quicker in both rounds 1 and 2 (whereas his rival only set faster times in Round 1).
What time is the green flag at Talladega?
The green flag for the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway will wave at 2:00 p.m. ET.
The start time for the GEICO 500 is not as late as it has been in recent years, but it’s still earlier than most other NASCAR races this season. The start time for the Daytona 500 was 3:30 p.m., while the start time for Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 was 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 11th.
The race also started at 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 15th when it was held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California last season during Round 1 of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.
The green flag for the Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway will drop at 3 p.m. ET Sunday (April 28). The race will be televised live on FOX (live streaming on fuboTV and Fox Sports Go).
The Geico 500 is the seventh race in the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series playoffs and is one of two races that have all three stages. The first stage is 150 laps, the second stage is 60 laps and the final stage is 40 laps.
The pole winner was Ryan Blaney, who started from the front row with Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
The race at Talladega is scheduled to start at 1:15 p.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 14.
The race will be broadcast on NBCSN and the WatchESPN app beginning with the pre-race show at 11:30 a.m. ET, followed by the green flag around 1:15 p.m.
It’s not unusual for races at Talladega Superspeedway to run late into the night, so if you’re planning on watching this one from home, you might want to get comfortable on the couch with some snacks and refreshments before settling in for a long night of racing action.
The green flag for the Alabama 500 is scheduled to drop at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 26.
The race is scheduled to run for 188 laps/500 miles around the 2.66-mile Talladega Superspeedway.
The start of the race was moved back one hour from its original start time of noon ET in order to avoid a potential conflict with the NCAA women’s basketball Final Four semifinals (which will be broadcast by CBS) and NASCAR Race Hub (which airs at 12:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1).
