Justin Allgaier has taken the top spot in qualifying for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 at Texas Motor Speedway.
It is his 10th career pole position, his fourth this season and his first at Texas. He grabbed the pole with a 29.188-second lap at a speed of 185.008 mph, the only car to exceed the 185-mph threshold.
Trevor Bayne, the only Toyota to make it into the top 10, will line up beside Allgaier as he qualified with a time of 29.202 seconds and a speed of 184.919 mph.
Layne Riggs did not make a qualifying attempt after spinning and hitting the inside wall exiting turn 2 in practice. As a result, he will line up for his series debut in 38th.
JD Motorsports’ Garrett Smithley and Our Motorsports’ Blaine Perkins, who qualified 36th and 37th, failed to qualify for the race. They were too low in owners points to snag provisional starting spots.
The Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 will air Saturday (Sept. 23) at 3:30 p.m. on USA Network.
