Jesse Love earned his first career ARCA Menards Series pole award when he won the pole for the Calypso Lemonade 150 at Iowa Speedway on Saturday evening (June 11).
He earned the pole in an abbreviated qualifying session which ended prematurely due to inclement weather. As a result, Love will lead the field to green in the race later Saturday night.
Saturday night mark’s Love’s third race at Iowa. He finished seventh in the race last year.
Daniel Dye will join Love on the starting front row.
Driving the No. 15 Venturini Motorsports Toyota, Conner Jones will start third.
Taylor Gray and Brandon Jones round out the starting top five, in fourth and fifth, respectively.
Connor Mosack, Jonathan Shafer, Nick Sanchez, Sammy Smith and Greg Van Alst will start sixth through 10th, respectively.
Twenty-three drivers are entered for this 150-lap race, so all drivers will start Saturday night.
