Busch To Line Up Sixth in Sunday's Carfax 400 at MIS

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Miller Lite Dodge driver Kurt Busch will start sixth in Sunday's CARFAX 400 here at Michigan International Speedway after clocking in with an official lap of 38.677 seconds (186.157 mph) in this afternoon's qualifying session.

"I like our Miller Lite Dodge this weekend," Busch said of his "PRS 605" Penske Racing Dodge Charger. "We have a fast race car. We want to bring home a win for Dodge here in their backyard.

"It was a great team effort here today," said Busch, who was 28th on the practice speed chart, turning in a fast lap of 39.013 seconds (184.5554 mph). "This place is tough to qualify at. You can choose the middle, the low groove sometimes. If we qualify up front, maybe we can hang on, but I definitely like running at this track.

"I'm happy to see that they made (Saturday's) practice later in the day, which will make the conditions really similar to Sunday's race," said Busch, who went out eighth in the qualifying order and picked up more than three-tenths of a second on the stopwatch (1.603 mph) between practice and qualifying.
