Harrison Burton Gets Xfinity Pocono Pole

Harrison Burton is on the pole for Sunday’s (June 27) NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Pocono Raceway.

A third-place finish at Nashville Superspeedway last week was enough to get the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing driver the top spot at the Tricky Triangle.

JR Motorsports’ Justin Allgaier starts next to Burton in row one, while Kaulig Racing’s AJ Allmendinger slots in third. Burton’s JGR teammate Brandon Jones is fourth and Allmendinger’s cohort Jeb Burton rounds out the top five positions.

The third regular JGR pilot, Daniel Hemric, takes sixth and Allgaier’s JRM colleagues Noah Gragson and Michael Annett roll off seventh and eighth. Jeremy Clements and Riley Herbst finish up the top 10 in the lineup.

Timmy Hill in the No. 13 MBM Motorsports entry did not qualify for the race.

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