LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kurt Busch has won the pole for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race in his hometown, claiming the spot for the second straight week.

After setting the track qualifying speed record in Round 1, Busch won his second career pole at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in his No. 41 Chevrolet, turning a lap in 27.505 seconds Friday.

"It was insanely fast," Busch said. "I was hoping to put on a show for the home crowd, get the pole, but now we've got to go to work (Saturday). I hope we can get the car dialed in for long-run speed for Sunday."

Joey Logano will start up front alongside Busch after clocking a lap in 27.572 seconds. Matt Kenseth came in third at 25.582, and Brad Keselowski was fourth with defending champion Matt Kenseth in sixth.

NASCAR's new low-downforce package, the Goodyear tires and the Vegas surface combined to put drivers in position for high speeds. In all, 14 drivers ran a faster lap than the previous track record.

"This is a track where you need more guts than brains," said Logano, who is in the front row in Vegas for the third straight year. "(You've got) to tell yourself to put your foot on the throttle when you really feel like you shouldn't. It is fun for that reason."

Kurt Busch also won the pole in Atlanta last week, but only after Kyle was sent to the back for failing inspection.
