Kyle Busch grabs first NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Pole No. 15 ditech.com Chevrolet driver youngest to win Series top starting spot Kyle Busch put the No. 15 ditech.com Silverado on the pole for today's Paramount Health Insurance 200 at Michigan International Speedway.

KYLE BUSCH, NO. 15 ditech.com SILVERADO, QUALIFIED FIRST:
ON FIRST NCTS POLE: "It has been good. Coming out here for only our third try in the Billy Ballew ditech.com Silverado and get our first pole is just cool. It is a lot of fun to go out there and race with those guys. We have a good time and we have good trucks. I am looking forward to today's race, and I am hoping we can come out of it with the same good results.
KEY TO THIS AFTERNOON'S RACE; "Track position is key, it always is no matter where we race. If you can stay up front and have your truck handling well, turning well, being able to leave the corner well, not get too tight and be able to hold the peddle down all the way around for the longest period of time, you should have a good day. Some guys might only be able to do it for five laps, others for eight or ten. It is all about being the one who can do it flat foot for the longest will have the best race."
