Chase Briscoe Earns Xfinity Pole at Talladega

The second race in the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ Round of 12 is at Talladega Superspeedway, and Chase Briscoe will lead the way.

Briscoe earned the pole after dominating last week’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which locked him into the next round of the playoffs.

JR Motorsports’ Noah Gragson will start next to Briscoe on the front row. Austin Cindric begins third, while fellow JRM teammates Justin Allgaier and Daniel Hemric round out the top five.

Anthony Alfredo begins sixth and Ryan Sieg is seventh. The most recent Talladega winner, Justin Haley, starts eighth, Michael Annett begins ninth and Brandon Jones rounds out the top 10.

Four statistical categories were used to form the lineup: 35% owner’s points, 25% driver’s finishing position, 25% team owner’s end position and 15% fastest lap from previous race.

Xfinity Starting Lineup for Talladega

The Ag-Pro 300 begins on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 4:30 p.m. ET and airs on NBCSN and MRN radio.
