It looks to be the start of the Kyle Busch show this weekend as Busch scored the pole for the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Busch lapped the 1.5-mile oval in 29.384 seconds for his 14th career pole award. It marks Busch’s second pole as he searches for another win following the victory at Kansas Speedway.

Defending series champion Matt Crafton qualified second for his fourth top-10 start of the season as he heads into Charlotte with an eight-point lead over Timothy Peters.

In his first truck start this year, Brad Keselowski qualified third as he searches for his first truck win as a car owner. Ron Hornaday and Brian Ickler rounded out the top five.

Ben Kennedy will start sixth, followed by Johnny Sauter, Jeb Burton, Timothy Peters and Ryan Blaney.
