Daniel Hemric Starting on Xfinity Pole for Phoenix

Daniel Hemric will lead the NASCAR Xfinity Series field to the green flag in Saturday’s (March 13) event at Phoenix Raceway.

Hemric claimed the pole after finishing second last week at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

His Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Brandon Jones joins him on the front row, while Team Penske’s Austin Cindric lines up third. Kaulig Racing cohorts AJ Allmendinger and Justin Haley round out the top five.

Jeb Burton begins sixth, while his cousin Harrison Burton starts seventh. JR Motorsports pilots Michael Annett, Josh Berry and Noah Gragson complete the top 10 in the lineup.

As expected, Dillon Bassett, Jordan Anderson and Andy Lally did not qualify for the race.

The lineup was created using a performance-metrics formula combining four weighted categories: 25% driver’s finishing position, 25% car owner’s finishing position, 15% fastest lap from previous race and 35% team owner points rankings.

The Call 811 Before You Dig 200 airs on March 13 at 5:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1 and MRN radio.
