Austin Cindric is on a roll.
Cindric won the pole for the Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway with a lap of 122.568 mph. Kyle Busch will be alongside Cindric on the front row, later this evening (Aug. 16).
“P1 at Bristol with this Money Lion Ford, this is pretty cool!” Cindric said after qualifying concluded. “We had a pretty unenthusiastic practice yesterday but we worked on the right things and it showed.”
Cindric has won the past two races and now has won back to back poles in the Xfinity Series.
Christopher Bell will start eighth later this evening.
Tyler Reddick was unable to post a time due to his car not passing pre-qualifying inspection. Reddick will also have to serve a pass-through penalty after the green flag flies.
Reddick car failed prequalifying/prerace tech multiple times. Won’t get to qualify and pass-through under green. Car chief ejected. More details to come … pic.twitter.com/vBW8wAm4uS
