Noah Gragson is on the pole for the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ first race in the Round of 8 at Kansas Speedway.
Gragson earned the position after finishing second behind AJ Allmendinger last week at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL.
The lineup was made using a formula that combined four weighted categories: rank in owner’s points (35%), driver’s finishing position (25%), owner’s finishing position (25%) and fastest lap from the previous race (15%).
The Kansas Lottery 300 airs on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. ET and airs on NBC Sports Network and MRN radio.
