It’s a full weekend of action for the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Dover International Speedway, and Austin Cindric will lead the way in Saturday’s (Aug. 22) Drydene 200.
Cindric, who is currently the hottest driver on the circuit, takes the pole after winning last week’s race at Daytona International Speedway’s road course.
The lineup was based on a formula combining the driver’s finishing position from last race (weighted 50%), owner points (35%) and fastest lap from the last race (15%).
JR Motorsports’ Noah Gragson will start on the front row next to Cindric. Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Brandon Jones and Harrison Burton fill up the second row and Gragson’s teammate Justin Allgaier rounds out the top five.
Riley Herbst starts sixth, Jeremy Clements is seventh and Michael Annett begins eighth. Ryan Sieg and Chase Briscoe complete the top 10 qualifiers.
The Drydene 200 will run on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 22-23 at 12:30 and 1 p.m. ET, respectively. Television coverage will be provided by NBC Sports Network.
