2017-11-4 Kurt Busch surpasses the Texas Motor Speedway qualifying record and wins the pole for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series AAA Texas 500. Busch lapped the 1.5 mile oval Texas Motor Speedway at 200.915 mph surpassing the old track record of 200.111 mph.

“It’s something when you set a new qualifying record, and it’s above 200 mph on the scoring pylon,” Busch said. “I told a couple buddies that we were going to go above 200 mph today. When you have a car that goes that fast, it comes with a lot of hard work from Tony Gibson and the guys on this No. 41 car. It’s neat to have that feeling, you drive down into the corner and just mat the gas and have it stick.”

Denny Hamlin posted the second fastest lap of 200.617 mph. Kevin Harvick was third in qualifying at 200.378 mph., Erik Jones lapped the track at 200.326 mph. locking in a fourth place start and Kyle Busch rounded out the top five starting spots with a lap at 200.252 mph.
