Busch to Start Eighth at Dover International Speedway

DOVER, Del. (September 24, 2010) -- Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger, led the Penske Racing trio of Cup Series drivers with an eighth-place qualifying effort for the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Busch was the 31st qualifier to make an attempt at the one-mile oval known as the "Monster Mile." He posted a fast-lap time of 23.252 seconds at a speed of 154.825 mph in the "Blue Deuce."

"We did a good job keeping up with a hot, slick race track," said Busch. "We improved from our practice qualifying run to our actually qualifying lap. It's tough when it's this hot. I noticed that I couldn't get back to the throttle fast enough. To be inside the top 10 is pretty solid."

Penske Racing teammates Sam Hornish Jr. and Brad Keselowski qualified 21st and 31st, respectively.
