After a weekend full of turning right, NASCAR is back on an oval and Dave Blaney is back behind the wheel of the number 22 CAT car. With a 29.426 second lap, Blaney won the Bud Pole Award, the second of his career and his first since 2003. Sunday will mark the first time a Toyota starts from the pole.
For Blaney, it was his first pole since February of 2003 when he started from P1 at Rockingham. It's been a rough year for Blaney so far. His highest finish is 11th.
Coming off of a couple of disappointing weeks, Kurt Busch qualified second with a 29.484. Busch looks to turn his luck around this weekend. He is a two time winner at Loudon.
