Waltrip ends pole drought
LONG POND, Pa. -- It took 14 years, but Michael Waltrip is once again a polesitter on NASCAR's top circuit.
The 42-year-old from Owensboro, Ky., ended a qualifying drought of 446 races by putting his Chevrolet in the top spot Saturday at Pocono Raceway. Waltrip got around the 2.5-mile triangular-shaped oval at 169.052 mph for his first pole since Michigan in 1991.
He edged Nextel Cup series champion Kurt Busch, who will start on the outside of the front row today in the $4.75 million Pocono 500. It was the third career pole for Waltrip.
