As the closest championship battle in history comes down to the final three races of the season, competitors raise their game to claim the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup title.
On April 12, Kyle Busch set a new NASCAR Sprint Cup Series track record in Coors Light Pole Qualifying at Texas Motor Speedway in his Gen-6 Toyota Camry, turning a lap .009 seconds faster than previous record holder Brian Vickers had 6 1/2 years earlier.
