Austin Cindric Begins on Pole in Xfinity Homestead Event

Austin Cindric will lead the NASCAR Xfinity Series field to green at Homestead-Miami Speedway Saturday, Feb. 27.

Cindric claimed the pole position after finishing second at the Daytona International Speedway road course.

Daniel Hemric starts second alongside Cindric on the front row, while his Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Harrison Burton and Brandon Jones make up the second row. Kaulig Racing’s Jeb Burton rounds out the top five qualifiers.

Brett Moffitt begins sixth and Brandon Brown is seventh. Justin Haley, Jeremy Clements and Myatt Snider finish up the top 10 in the lineup.

As expected, Ronnie Bassett Jr. and Jordan Anderson did not qualify for the race.

Driver’s and owner’s results (weighted 50%) and fastest lap speeds (15%) from the Daytona road course as well as team owner’s points rankings (35%) were used to form the lineup.
