Kyle Busch, Joey Logano 1-2 in 2015 Virginia 529 College Savings 250 Qualifying at Richmond

A Cup driver once again looks to be the one to beat in an Xfinity Series race, with Kyle Busch winning the pole for the Virginia 529 College Savings 250, his second pole of the season, fifth at Richmond and 44th of his career.

Busch’s lap of 122.073 mph put him ahead of fellow Sprint Cup Series driver Joey Logano, who ran a lap of 122.017 mph.

Brian Scott, who led 239 laps in this event two years ago, qualified third with a lap of 121.968 mph. Regan Smith (121.808) and Josh Berry (121.540) completed the top five.

Chase Elliott (121.141), Erik Jones (121.027), Austin Dillon (120.735), Ty Dillon (120.520) and Daniel Suarez (120.208) rounded out the top 10.

Brendan Gaughan (120.064) and Elliott Sadler (119.729) also made the final round of qualifying. They will start 11th and 12th, respectively.

Series points leader Chris Buescher was the first driver to miss the final round. His lap of 120.676 mph was good enough for the 13th starting position.

The Xfinity Series will take the green flag at 7:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Network.

  1. Let me add that talking heads in the booth just stated that the last Xfinity driver to win at Richmond was Kyle Busch…in 2004. If that doesn’t give you an idea of how we got to where we are then I don’t know what will. It isn’t the Kyle part that bothers me as much as the “not since 2004″part. Can’t imagine how Xfinity teams (not affiliated or out-right owned by a Cup team) manage to attract any sponsorship for the $8 to 11 million that I hear it takes to run a Xfinity team. “Hello, could you please sponsor our team at Richmond? Uh..no..that’s right, an Xfinity driver hasn’t won there since 2004…hello? hello? I think they hung up”

    • I wonder the same thing. Spending a small fortune to sponsor a race car in a racing series NO ONE watches seems like the ultimate waste of a company’s advertising budget. It makes about as much sense as putting billboards on the bottom of busses. As it stands now this series can’t survive.
