Kyle Busch, Ryan Blaney on front row for Friday’s NNS race at Richmond

kybu-nns-pole-win-richmond-2-2014After two red-flag delays due to rain in Friday afternoon’s NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) qualifying session, NASCAR limited qualifying at Richmond International Raceway to only the 30-minute first round. And, at the end of the round and with a qualifying lap speed of 120.903mph, it was Kyle Busch capturing the pole for tonight’s Virginia529 College Savings 250.

This was Busch’s sixth series pole of the 2014 season, his forty-second series career pole and his fourth series pole at Richmond International Raceway.

Starting on the outside pole with a qualifying lap speed of 120.498mph, will be Ryan Blaney; followed by series Rookie of the Year (ROTY) candidate, Chase Elliott (120.155mph) starting third, Kyle Larson (119.941) fourth and Brian Scott (119.931) starts fifth.

Rounding out the top-ten starting positions will be Matt Kenseth (119.713mph) who will start from sixth, Brendan Gaughan (119.591) seventh, ROTY candidate Ty Dillon (119.591) eighth, Trevor Bayne (119.532) ninth and ROTY candidate Dylan Kwasniewski (119.495) starting from tenth.

Failing to make the starting lineup up and going home were Derrike Cope and Tanner Berryhill.

The 33rd annual Virginia529 College Savings 250 is schedule to get started around 7:50 pm (ET) this evening, and ESPN2 will provide television coverage beginning with their NASCAR Countdown pre-race show at 7:00 pm (ET).
