Kyle Busch will start on the pole for Sunday night’s NASCAR All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway after his pit crew helped him beat Ryan Blaney for the top starting spot. Blaney will start second.

All 20 drivers already qualified for the All-Star Race took part in single-lap qualifying. The top eight competed in a head-to-head elimination bracket that had teams performing a four-tire pit stop before the drivers raced around the 1.5-mile speedway for a lap. Busch beat Blaney in the finals.
