Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks

Grant Enfinger will lead the field to the green flag for Friday night’s (March 29) Vankor 350 at Texas Motor Speedway. The driver of the No. 98 Ford just narrowly edged Brett Moffitt with a 187.35 mph lap. It’s Enfinger’s fourth career pole and his first at TMS.

Rookie Sheldon Creed will start third in his fifth straight top-10 qualifying effort. Kyle Busch and Austin Hill round out the top five.

Tyler Ankrum, who’s making his first start on a mile-and-a-half track since turning 18 a couple of weeks ago, will start sixth.

“This is a really cool experience,” he said earlier in the day. “I’ve always loved Texas.”

Johnny Sauter will start seventh, alongside teammate Ben Rhodes. Stewart Friesen and Harrison Burton round out the top 10.

Ross Chastain and Matt Crafton will start 11th and 12th, respectively.

Norm Benning was the only driver who didn’t qualify after Bayley Currey withdrew following a fire during first practice Thursday (March 28).


The green flag for the Vankor 350 will fly around 9 p.m. ET with coverage on FOX Sports 1
