(Long Pond, Pa) -- Kyle Busch turned a lap of 179.151 mph to win the pole for today's Monster Energy Cup Race at Pocono Raceway.

Martin Truex Jr. starts second and Matt Kenseth third for a 1-2-3 start for Toyota.

Ryan Blaney is fourth, followed by fellow Ford drivers Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski.

Darrell Wallace Jr. starts 16th in the No. 43 Ford. He's the first black driver in a Cup race since 2006.
