Kyle Busch won the pole for Sunday's Food City 500 at Bristol, and he beat a familiar opponent to do it — his older brother, Kurt Busch.

Kyle, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series points leader, turned a lap of 14.895 seconds in the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, just nipping Kurt's time of 14.897 seconds.

It's Kyle Busch's 29th career pole, and his second of the season. It also marks the third time the Busch brothers have started 1-2 in a NASCAR Cup race. Kyle sat on the pole the two previous times as well.

"He always told everyone if you think I'm good, just wait until you see my younger brother," Kyle Busch joked with FS1 afterward. "It's nice to come out here and grab a front-row starting spot."

  Kurt Busch unexcited by 2019 schedule, wants shake-up Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kurt Busch says he is not excited about the 2019 NASCAR Cup series schedule because he feels it needs to be “shaken up”.

Kurt Busch knew exactly where he lost the pole.

"I missed it a little bit in turn one, got greedy and it washed up just a little bit," Kurt Busch told FS1. "Two Busch's on the front row, that's not too bad."

Kevin Harvick, who leads the NASCAR Cup series with three victories this season, crashed in practice earlier in the day and had to go to a backup car. He did not turn a qualifying lap and will start 39th — where he would have started regardless of how he qualified because he is driving a backup car.

Brad Keselowski qualified third, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Ryan Blaney.
