Austin Cindric Obtains Xfinity Pole at Talladega

After a week off, the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Talladega Superspeedway where Austin Cindric sits on the pole.

Though he finished sixth at Martinsville Speedway, he still holds a 42-point lead over Daniel Hemric in the standings.

Hemric will start next to Cindric on the front row, while Hemric’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Harrison Burton lines up third. Noah Gragson starts fourth and Justin Haley, who swept Talladega in 2020, rounds out the top five.

Martinsville winner Josh Berry will begin the race in sixth, Brandon Jones is seventh and Berry’s JR Motorsports cohort Justin Allgaier starts eighth. Jeb Burton and Myatt Snider complete the top-10 positions.

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

Xfinity Starting Lineup for Talladega

The Ag-Pro 300 is set to air on April 24 at 4 p.m. ET on FOX.
