Much like Friday’s (Sept. 6) practice sessions at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Joe Gibbs Racing was the class of the field in qualifying for Saturday’s (Sept. 7) Indiana 250, with Kyle Busch winning the pole at 168.397 mph.
Busch was just ahead of Brandon Jones in second (168.083 mph), who recorded his first front row starting position since late March at Texas Motor Speedway. The No. 19 Toyota was right in front of Christopher Bell in third (167.317 mph).
Six-time winner this season Cole Custer will start right around the top 10 in 11th, with JR Motorsports drivers Jeb Burton, Noah Gragson and Michael Annett inside the top 15, along with Austin Dillon.
Gander Outdoors Truck Series regular Austin Hill will roll off from 17th position. Hill is making his series debut with MBM Motorsports in a joint effort with Hattori Racing Enterprises.
The green flag will wave shortly after 4 p.m. ET. Allgaier is the defending winner.
