Todd Gilliland begins on the pole for Saturday’s (June 26) NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Pocono Raceway.

Stewart Friesen lines up sixth and John Hunter Nemechek wheels his No. 4 Kyle Busch Motorsports truck from seventh. Nashville’s winner Ryan Preece is eighth with GMS’ Jack Wood and Sheldon Creed completing the top 10 positions.
