Who doesn’t like a little home cooking?
Las Vegas native Noah Gragson clearly does, as he put his No. 18 Satellite AutoGlass Toyota Tundra on the pole for Friday night’s World of Westgate 200 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. His Kyle Busch Motorsports machine turned a lap of 178.036 mph (30.331 seconds) around the 1.5-mile oval en router to his eighth pole of his career and fifth this season.
Gragson started fifth and finished 12th at LVMS earlier this season and finished 13th in 2017.
Fellow Camping World Truck Series playoff drivers Stewart Friesen (30.541) and Grant Enfinger (30.588) qualified second and third, respectively. Chris Eggleston (30.640), who has a best-finish this season of 11th in three starts, and Riley Herbst (30.772), who has a best-finish of eighth in two starts this season, round out the top five.
Johnny Sauter, Brandon Jones, John Hunter Nemechek, Brett Moffitt and Todd Gilliland complete the top 10 starters. NASCAR Next driver Tanner Thorson and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park winner Justin Haley also participated in the second round of group qualifying and will roll off 11th and 12th.
The green flag for the second race of the NCWTS playoffs is scheduled to fly at 9 p.m. EST.
