Ross Chastain earned his first career pole on Saturday (Septemeber 1st) at the Darlington Raceway. Chastain turned a 169.531 mph lap in the final round of qualifying to put the No. 42 on top for today’s Sport Clips Haircuts VFW Help A Hero 200. It is the second pole of the season for Chip Ganassi Racing’s No. 42 in the XFINITY Series.
In Jones’ case, his chances of earning a good finish were significant hurt early Saturday. Jones’ No. 19 Toyota failed pre-qualifying inspection four times. As a result, his car chief has been ejected from the track, he was not allowed to attempt to qualify, and he will be forced to serve a drive-through penalty on the first lap of the race. In addition, he will be penalized 10 driver and owner points.
The Sports Clips Help a Hero 200 will go green at 3:30 p.m ET on NBC.
