Joe Gibbs Racing and Team Penske have combined to win 10 of the last 11 races at Bristol in the Xfinity Series, and following qualifying on Friday, it appears that Gibbs is in the catbird seat for this week’s edition.
Team Penske’s only entry, the No. 22 of Ryan Blaney, qualified sixth (125.445).
Brandon Jones, fresh off a fifth-place finish in last night’s Camping World Truck Series race, was the first driver to miss the final round of qualifying. He will roll off 13th.
With only 40 cars entered for the event, nobody missed the race.
The Food City 300 will go green at 7:30. Coverage will be on NBCSN.
