| , RacinToday.com Saturday, May 15 2010


Joe Gibbs Racing’s Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin will be manning the front row for the start of today’s NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Busch won the pole for the Heluva Good! 200 with a lap at 158.228 mph at Dover International Speedway.

It was his third pole of the season.

Busch has three victories in Nationwide this season and is second in points.

Hamlin was second fastest in qualifying at 157.467 mph. He will be making just his third start of the season. Last time out – which was a week ago at Darlington – he won from the pole.

Brad Keselowski, the series points leader, was third fastest while Carl Edwards was fourth and Kasey Kahne fifth.

Keselowski will start the race with a 55-point lead over Busch.

Jason Keller qualified for the race and as a result will make his 500th career start in the series.

Today’s race is schedule to begin at 2 p.m.
