BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) - Kurt Busch won his second NASCAR Cup Series pole of the season Friday in qualifying for Sunday's race at Michigan International Speedway.

Brad Keselowski was second, followed by Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick. Kyle Busch and Harvick are 1-2 in the points standings and have won nine of the 14 races in the series this year.

It was the 24th pole of Kurt Busch's career. He posted a lap of 203.361 mph in his No. 41 Ford. He also started first in Texas in April and finished seventh in the race. He hasn't won this season but has seven top-10 finishes.

Kyle Larson, who has won the last three Cup races at Michigan, was 26th in qualifying.
