Harrison Burton Earns First Career NCWTS Pole at Iowa

Harrison Burton makes his 10th career start Saturday, and he will start from the pole position.

The 17-year-old earned his first-career pole in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, turning a 132.850-mph lap around Iowa Speedway during the third round of qualifying to put a lock on the pole. Noah Gragson, the defending pole winner, qualified second while Brett Moffitt qualified third. Grant Enfinger and Stewart Friesen round out the top five.

Last weekend’s winner Johnny Sauter, who is still seeking his first Iowa victory, qualified sixth followed by Justin Haley in seventh. Defending race winner John Hunter Nemechek qualified eighth, with David Gilliland in ninth, and Ben Rhodes rounding out the top 10.

Three trucks failed to qualify for the M&M’s 200 presented by Casey’s General Store: Camden Murphy, Bryant Barnhill, and Josh Reaume all three failed to qualify for the event.
