Kyle Busch won the pole for Saturday’s Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway as rain halted and cut short the qualifying session.
For Busch, the pole is the 48th of his Xfinity Series career, fifth of 2015 and second at Homestead in the last four years.
An impressive statistic for the 30-year-old is the current streak of top fives following poles in the NXS. The last 23 poles for Busch have resulted in a top-five finish in the race, as well as the past 35 in the top 10.
Championship leader Chris Buescher would have been quick enough to compete in the final 12-driver round. Once the rain hit, the sessions was called, slotting Buescher 11th on the starting grid.
Morgan Shepherd is the lone driver to not qualify for Saturday’s season finale.
