Austin Hill broke the record for fastest NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series pole at Pocono Raceway on Friday night (June 26). It is Hill’s second pole of the season.
Hill wheeled his No. 16 Toyota around the 2.5-mile Tricky Triangle for the new record of 171.347 miles per hour.
Starting alongside Hill on the front row is Ross Chastain. He missed the pole by 0.074 seconds, but still clocked in at 171.106 mph. In Truckin’ Thursdays, Beth Lunkenheimer wrote Chastain can lock himself into the playoffs this weekend.
Rolling off third for the 2019 Gander RV 150 will be Stewart Friesen. He was the fastest driver in qualifying without a win this season. He drove his No. 52 Halmar Friesen Racing Chevrolet at a speed of 170.661 mph.
Thirty-two drivers entered, so it will be a full field and nobody failed to qualify.
The Gander RV 150 will consist of 60 laps around the track in Long Pond, Pa. The first stage will end at lap 15, and the second at lap 30.
The race will begin at 1 p.m. ET with TV coverage provided by FOX.
