Chase Briscoe‘s chances in NASCAR Xfinity Series playoffs just got a boost. The defending Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL winner won the pole in his return to the course on Saturday afternoon (Sept. 28).
Briscoe posted a lap of 100.346 miles per hour, just barely edging out Tyler Reddick (100.328 mph). Austin Cindric (100.181 mph), Cole Custer (100.097 mph) and AJ Allmendinger (99.944 mph) rounded out the top five.
Alex Labbe (99.859 mph) qualified sixth, and Justin Allgaier (99.699 mph) was seventh quickest. Jeremy Clements (98.949 mph), Justin Haley (98.596 mph) and Will Rodgers (98.194 mph) completed the top 10.
Last week’s winner Christopher Bell will start 11th after missing a chicane twice in his two attempts in the second round of qualifying. Thirty-eight cars attempted the race, so no one failed to qualify.
The Drive for the Cure 250 will start at 3:30 p.m./et on Saturday, Sept. 28. The race will air on NBCSN and is the second race of the Round of 12.
