Kurt Busch is back on pole for the third time in the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, this time for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, which is the only Cup Series race at the track this year.

Busch put his #41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford on the pole position for Sunday's race at the track by finishing ahead of the five hungry Toyota drivers of Joe Gibbs Racing and Furniture Row Racing, including his brother Kyle, who all qualified in the top nine.

Reigning Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. qualified in second place beside Busch with Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin behind them in the second row. Team Penske teammates Ryan Blaney and Brad Keselowski qualified in the third row in their Ford cars.

The race is scheduled for Sunday at 2:00 p.m. ET.
