Kurt Busch on pole for Coca-Cola 600

Relive the top five moments of all time from the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, from Janet Gunthrie becoming the first woman to compete in the race in 1976 to Jeff Gordon's first Cup Series win in 1994.

Kurt Busch will lead the field to the green flag for tonight’s Coca-Cola 600 after claiming the pole Sunday afternoon at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

It is Busch’s 28th career pole and first at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Busch is joined on the front row by Jimmie Johnson. Chase Elliott qualified third and is followed by Matt Kenseth and rookie Tyler Reddick. Austin Dillon was sixth, as Chevrolet drivers took the top six spots.
