Justin Allgaier Takes Xfinity Bristol Pole

When the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ regular-season finale begins at Bristol Motor Speedway, Justin Allgaier will lead the way Sept. 18.

Allgaier claimed the pole after winning both races last week at Richmond Raceway.

Kaulig Racing’s Ross Chastain starts second next to Allgaier, while fellow JR Motorsports driver Noah Gragson slots in third. Team Penske’s Austin Cindric is fourth and Chastain’s Kaulig teammate Justin Haley rounds out the top five.

Harrison Burton’s No. 20 Toyota of Joe Gibbs Racing starts sixth, while Jeb Burton begins seventh. Burton’s JGR cohort Brandon Jones is eighth, Michael Annett is ninth and Chase Briscoe finishes up the top 10 starters.

Drivers lineup based on a formula using 25% driver’s finishing position, 25% owner’s end position, 35% owner points ranking and 15% fastest lap.

There’s one spot left to fill for the Xfinity playoffs, which start Sept. 26 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
