For the second week in a row, Kyle Busch is on the pole in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, this time at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the Stratosphere 200. He is aiming for his third career tripleheader sweep this weekend.

Busch put his self-owned No. 51 Toyota at the top spot at his hometown track with a lap of 30.575 seconds (176.615 mph). He’ll be joined on the front row by Halmar Friesen Racing’s Stewart Friesen.

Daytona winner Johnny Sauter will start third, followed by Kyle Busch Motorsports driver Spencer Davis and full-season KBM racer Noah Gragson.

Atlanta winner Brett Moffitt starts sixth for Hattori Racing Enterprises, followed by DGR-CROSLEY’s Justin Marks. Grant Enfinger is the highest-placed Ford in eighth for ThorSport Racing, while John Hunter Nemechek starts in ninth in his NEMCO Motorsports machine. ThorSport Racing’s Myatt Snider finishes off the top 10.

Busch was also fastest in Round No. 1 with a time of 30.580 seconds (176.586 mph).  Friesen was second quickest, followed by Sauter, Moffitt and Gragson.

30 of the 32 trucks present took times in Round No. 1.  Mike Senica had the five-minute clock expire on him.  Meanwhile, Beaver Motorsports’ BJ McLeod went out for his run, then pulled into the pits prior to taking the green flag.  With only 32 trucks present, no one will fail to qualify.


Coverage of the Stratosphere 200 begins with NASCAR RaceDay at 8:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1. The green will fly shortly after 9 p.m.
