Austin Cindric Beginning on Xfinity Pole at Atlanta

Austin Cindric will look to win back-to-back races as he rolls off from the pole in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway Saturday, March 20.

A dominant performance at Phoenix Raceway helped him land the first spot on the starting grid.

Jeb Burton will start next to Cindric on the front row, while fellow Kaulig Racing pilot AJ Allmendinger begins third. Brandon Brown and Harrison Burton round out the top five starters.

Justin Allgaier is the highest-starting JR Motorsports driver in sixth and Riley Herbst is seventh. Brett Moffitt, Myatt Snider and Jeremy Clements line up eighth-10th.

Driver’s and car owner’s finishing position, weighted 25% each, as well as fastest lap (15%) and team owner points rankings (35%) were combined to set the lineup.

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

Xfinity Lineup for Atlanta

The EchoPark 250 is set to air on March 20 at 5 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1 and PRN radio.
