Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
AUSTIN, TEXAS —
In 75 previous starts in the Camping World Truck Series, Sheldon Creed won eight races and the 2020 series championship. Despite all of these accomplishments, however, he had never won a pole.
That changed Friday afternoon (March 25), as Creed recorded a lap of 90.985 mph around Circuit of the Americas and will lead the field to the green flag on Saturday afternoon. Creed dominated Friday’s sessions, as he was also the fastest truck in the one practice session.
Zane Smith had the second fastest time in qualifying and will start alongside Creed on the front row. Smith’s No. 38 Front Row Motorsports team won this race in 2021 with Todd Gilliland, and they will look to defend their title during tomorrow’s race.
There was one incident in group B of qualifying, as the session was halted for Jack Wood stalling at the start-finish line.
The XPEL 225 will take place on Saturday, March 26 at 1:00 p.m. ET, with TV coverage provided by FOX Sports 1.
