Austin Dillon has had a lot of success in the Truck Series. He has won six races in his career and is the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion. This weekend, Dillon has led every practice session, and on Saturday he took the pole for the UNOH 175 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Dillon will lead the field to green in the Truck Series’ 500th race. Dillon took the pole at a speed of 133.296 mph.
Kyle Busch will roll off from the second position, with Cameron Hayley starting in third and Erik Jones fourth. Starting in the fifth spot is Dalton Sargeant, with Timothy Peters sixth. Spencer Gallagher will start in the seventh position, with Gray Gaulding eighth. Starting in the ninth position is Austin Theriault, with Matt Crafton rounding out the top 10. Daniel Hemric starts in the 11th spot and John Hunter Nemechek rounds out the top 12.
Those 12 drivers advanced to the final round of qualifying at NHMS. Positions 13-24 were decided in round two of the three-round qualifying session.
Starting in the 13th spot is Cole Custer, with Tyler Reddick starting in the 14th spot. Starting 15th is Ben Kennedy, with John Wes Townley starting 16th. Starting in the 17th spot is Mason Mingus, with Ray Black Jr. starting 18th. Travis Kvapil will start in the 19th spot, with Brandon Brown starting 20th. Clay Greenfield and Ruben Pardo will roll off 21st and 22nd, respectively, with Tyler Tanner and Johnny Sauter rounding out the top 24.
Sauter flat-spotted one of his tires in the first round of qualifying, with the team asking NASCAR if they could change that tire. NASCAR agreed to let Sauter change the tire; however, his team changed all four tires on his No. 98 truck. NASCAR told Sauter they could not make a lap in the second session, and it’s likely he will have to start from the rear of the field due to unapproved adjustments.
The UNOH 175 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway will start at 1:19 p.m. ET and will be aired on FOX Sports 1.
