Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
Todd Gilliland will start on the pole for tonight’s (May 28) Camping World Truck Series race. Rain that began just before NASCAR Xfinity Series practice returned after the session, causing NASCAR to cancel Truck Series qualifying at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The No. 38 Front Row Motorsports pilot took home the checkered flag last week at Circuit of the Americas and will look to win his second straight Triple Truck Challenge prize tonight.
GMS Racing’s Sheldon Creed will start next to Gilliland on the front row, while Hattori Racing Enterprises’ Austin Hill slots in third. John Hunter Nemechek, who had some damage repaired in practice earlier, starts fourth and Ben Rhodes rounds out the top five.
Creed’s GMS teammates Zane Smith and Tyler Ankrum begin sixth and seventh, while Grant Enfinger is eighth. Niece Motorsports’ Carson Hocevar is ninth and ThorSport Racing’s Matt Crafton completes the top 10.
Several trucks withdrew before qualifying, including Spencer Davis Motorsports and CMI Motorsports.
The lineup was set using the formula that combines driver’s and team owner’s finishing position (weighted 25% each), fastest lap from previous race (15%) and rank in owner’s points (35%).
The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 airs May 28 at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
