Carl Edwards Grabs Busch Series Pole

Toni Montgomery · Friday October 13, 2006


He may not be able to catch Kevin Harvick for the championship, but Carl Edwards can still win races and poles, and he did just that for the Dollar General 300 at Lowe's Motor Speedway. Edwards posted a fast speed of 186.245 mph to win the Busch Pole Award for tonight’s race. Teammate Matt Kenseth took the outside front row position with a fast lap of 186.181 mph; J.J. Yeley, Mike Skinner, and Casey Mears completed the Top 5 starters.

Paul Menard, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Kenny Wallace, and David Ragan rounded out the Top 10. Menard is the highest qualified of the full time Busch Series drivers, while David Ragan is making a one-off appearance in the No. 6 Scott's Ford of Roush Racing as he prepares for the No. 6 Nextel Cup ride in 2007.

Qualifying and the race are a same day show for the Busch Series, so while qualifying just wrapped up, the Dollar General 300 will be starting at 8:00. Stay tuned to for more LIVE race coverage.
