Noah Gragson on Kansas Xfinity Pole

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.

Austin Cindric starts next to Gragson on the front row, while Daniel Hemric and Ross Chastain make up the second row. Brandon Jones rounds out the top five.

Chase Briscoe begins sixth, Justin Allgaier is seventh and Ryan Sieg starts eighth. Justin Haley, the final playoff driver, and Alex Labbe complete the top 10 in the lineup.

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%).

Xfinity Starting Lineup for Kansas

The Kansas Lottery 300 airs on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. ET and airs on NBC Sports Network and MRN radio.
