Ben Rhodes on Truck Pole for Las Vegas

Ben Rhodes will roll off from the pole in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Friday night (March 5).

Rhodes looks to continue his winning ways after sweeping the first two events at Daytona International Speedway (on the oval and the road course).

GMS Racing’s Sheldon Creed starts second next to Rhodes, while Kyle Busch Motorsports pilot John Hunter Nemechek slots in third. Rhodes’ ThorSport Racing teammate Matt Crafton begins fourth and Nemechek’s cohort Christian Eckes rounds out the top five qualifiers.

Todd Gilliland is sixth, Chandler Smith starts seventh and Derek Kraus is eighth. Stewart Friesen and Carson Hocevar completes the top 10 in the lineup.

An equation combining team owner’s points rankings (weighted 35%) as well as driver’s finishing position (25%), owner’s finishing position (25%) and fastest lap (15%) from previous race was used to construct the lineup.

Truck Lineup for Las Vegas

The Bucked Up 200 is set to run on March 5 at 9 p.m. ET and will air on FS1 and MRN radio.
