Chase Briscoe Grabs Xfinity Pole at Daytona

The NASCAR Xfinity Series returns to Daytona International Speedway this weekend, and Chase Briscoe will lead the way in the WaWa 250 powered by Coca-Cola Friday night, Aug. 28.

Last Sunday’s Dryden 200 victor claimed the pole after recording the fastest lap in the race. The lineup is based on a formula that combines finishing position from last race, rank in owner’s points and fastest lap from previous race.

Kaulig Racing’s Ross Chastain joins Briscoe on the front row, while Austin Cindric slots in third. JR Motorsports teammates Noah Gragson and Justin Allgaier lineup fourth and fifth.

Brandon Jones’ No. 19 car of Joe Gibbs Racing is in sixth. Fellow JR Motorsports cohorts Daniel Hemric and Michael Annett start seventh and eighth. Justin Haley begins ninth and Riley Herbst completes the top 10 qualifiers.
