Tyler Reddick Sets New Truck Track Record on Way to Bristol Pole

Qualifying for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series began with 35 competitors taking to Bristol Motor Speedway, but only Tyler Reddick can lay claim to the fastest lap in a NASCAR truck around the .533-mile speed plant. With a lap time of 14.884 seconds in round three, Reddick replaces Ken Schrader in the record books.

Before the pole winner was determined, two preliminary rounds of qualifying took place with Daniel Suarez taking first place honors in round one and Reddick fastest in round two.

During those two preliminary rounds, Austin Cindric looped his No. 2 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford multiple times without damage. Cindric will start the UNOH 200 in 27th place as the last truck to qualify on time.

The same could not be said for Clay Greenfield, Stewart Friesen or Rico Abreu, as all three found the outside wall during their qualifying runs. Abreu will be forced to a back up No. 98 Safelite Toyota, as he backed the machine into the turn 2 wall. Friesen advanced to round two with minor right side damage, but was only able to run 23rd quickest. Greenfield missed the race on time, after one final attempt to qualify ended in contact with the frontstretch wall.

Jake Griffin, Greenfield and Cody McMahan failed to qualify.

Full qualifying results are here. The race will be run tonight, Aug. 17, with coverage scheduled for an 8:30 p.m. ET start.
