Despite having not won a race in 2019, Grant Enfinger won his second pole of the season on Thursday (July 11) at Kentucky Speedway for tonight’s Buckle Up in Your Truck 225.
Enfinger turned a lap of 181,593 mph, .028 seconds ahead of Sheldon Creed (181.781 mph). The second-place effort is Creed’s best starting position of the season.
Todd Gilliland, likely needing a victory in the next four races to make the postseason qualified third (181.690 mph), with Matt Crafton (180.415 mph) and Ross Chastain (180.355 mph) rounding out the top five.
There were no incidents in the qualifying session, however, Brandon Jones all-but-wrecked his Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota. The No. 51 will roll-off 27th.
Stewart Friesen elected to roll slowly around the track posting the slowest time, saving his tires for the race after the No. 52 team already knew it was going to start from the rear. Prior to opening practice, NASCAR confiscated the Halmar Friesen Racing Chevrolet for an issue dealing with the rear firewall placement in relation to the rear clip. Ultimately, the team had to pull out the backup.
