Nick Sanchez Wins Pole for Truck Race at Nashville

Nick Sanchez secured the pole for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Nashville Superspeedway on Friday, June 23. He’ll lead the way for the Rackley Roofing 200 in his No. 2 Rev Racing Chevrolet after posting a 161.915 mph speed in qualifying.

Sanchez grabbed his third pole of the season in his rookie 2023 campaign; he’s still seeking his first career Truck Series win.

Bayley Currey qualified a career-best second and starts on the front row next to Sanchez, while Rajah Caruth and Corey Heim make up the second row. Tanner Gray from the TRICON Toyota team rounds out the top-five starters.
