Creed’s lap of 95.694 m.p.h. outran Cole Custer in the final round to grab the pole for the race this afternoon. Custer will start second in the race. Josh Berry, John Hunter Nemechek and Justin Allgaier completed the top five.
Hemric was fastest in Group A qualifying, while Chandler Smith was fastest in Group B. Several drivers had issues during qualifying, but there was no major damage to any cars. Stefan Parsons blew a motor during practice.
