Harrison Burton Earns Xfinity Series Pole at Martinsville

Harrison Burton will take the helm in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Martinsville Speedway Friday night (April 9).

Burton claimed the pole after finishing third at Atlanta Motor Speedway two weeks ago.

Atlanta’s victor Justin Allgaier starts on the front row in second, while Kaulig Racing’s AJ Allmendinger begins third. Burton’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Daniel Hemric lines up fourth, and Allmendinger’s cohort Justin Haley rounds out the top five.

Austin Cindric will pilot his No. 22 Team Penske Ford from sixth place. Riley Herbst starts seventh, Noah Gragson is eighth, Myatt Snider begins ninth and Michael Annett complete the top 10.

As expected, Andy Lally, Jordan Anderson and Ronnie Bassett Jr. did not qualify for the event.

Four categories were weighted and combined to form the lineup: driver’s and car owner’s finishing position (25% each) and fastest lap (15%) from previous race, as well as rank in team owner’s points (35%).

The Cook Out 250 airs Friday, April 9 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1 and MRN radio.
