Looking for his fourth straight victory, Kyle Busch and the rest of Joe Gibbs Racing are dialed-in at Pocono Raceway this weekend. The bright green No. 18 M&M’s Toyota was quickest on the speed charts once again in preparation for the Windows 10 400 at Pocono with a lap time of 51.358 seconds (175.240 mph) after winning the pole on Friday.
After the JGR cars swept the top four during Saturday’s first session, Busch led the way, with Carl Edwards sitting in third. Second quickest was Kurt Busch, who was 51 hundredths of a second behind his younger brother’s fast time. He also had the quickest 10-consecutive lap average, with an average speed of 173.994 mph. Kevin Harvick, who qualified second for the race, was third in practice and had the second fast 10-lap average.
During the session, Jeb Burton got loose coming off turn 3, slamming into the inside pit wall. His No. 26 car was destroyed and forced to go to a backup car.
