Busch takes pole for Subway 500 Sunday

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – Kurt Busch won the pole for the Subway 500 at Martinsville Speedway on Friday, his Nextel Cup Series-high sixth pole position of the season.

Busch circled the tight 0.526-mile oval at 97.568 mph, giving Dodge its 15th pole of the season in the 31 races where qualifying was held. He knocked Jeff Gordon to the outside of the front row after Gordon set the early standard at 97.377 mph.

Gordon, who has sat on the pole five times at Martinsville, earned his 19th top-10 starting spot in 28 races on the shortest, tightest and oldest track in the series.

The top five also has rookie Denny Hamlin, Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
