Jeb Burton Gets Xfinity Pole at New Hampshire

Jeb Burton has claimed the pole position for Saturday’s (July 17) race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The No. 10 Kaulig Racing driver earned the spot after finishing second last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Burton’s Kaulig teammate Justin Haley starts next to him in row one, while JR Motorsports’ Noah Gragson and Team Penske’s Austin Cindric make up row two. Gragson’s JRM colleague Justin Allgaier rounds out the top five.

The third Kaulig pilot, AJ Allmendinger, begins sixth. Brett Moffitt rolls off seventh, Jeremy Clements is eighth and Sam Mayer starts ninth. Harrison Burton is the highest Joe Gibbs Racing driver in the 10th starting spot.

Josh Berry, who is filling in for Michael Annett, begins 21st.

As expected, the No. 13 of Chad Finchum did not qualify.

As is the case at racetracks without practice or qualifying, an equation based on a driver’s recent performance was used to form the lineup. Driver’s and car owner’s finishing position (weighted 25% each), fastest lap from previous race (15%) and team owner points ranking (35%) were added to set the lineup.
