Kyle Busch will start his drive for his fourth straight NASCAR Sprint Cup victory from the pole.

Busch turned a lap of 178.416 mph Friday at Pocono Raceway to take the top spot for the first time during his sensational streak.

He also made it three straight Cup poles for Joe Gibbs Racing following back-to-back wins from Carl Edwards.

Busch missed the first 11 races of the season with a broken right leg and left foot. He returned in late May and has won three consecutive Sprint Cup Series races and four of the last five.

He's trying to become the first Cup driver since Jimmie Johnson in 2007 to win four straight races. Busch won on the road course at Sonoma, then took the last three races at Kentucky, New Hampshire and Indianapolis.

Kevin Harvick was second, followed by Joey Logano, Austin Dillon and Tony Stewart.
