NCWTS: Blaney Scores Las Vegas Pole

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series took to the 1.5-mile Las Vegas Motor Speedway for three rounds of qualifying. When it was all over, Ryan Blaney ended up with the pole for the Rhino Liners 350K. He posted a 30.722 second lap with about one minute remaining.

Starting from second will be Darrell Wallace Jr. after posting a fast time of 30.763 seconds, 175.536 mph. The second starting spot will mark the 12th time of this year that Wallace will roll off from the top-10. He hopes this starting spot will help him as he seeks his third career win of the year.

Taylor Malsam, who posted his best career starting position in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, will start from third. The Michigan International Speedway in August was the last time that Malsam started a race from the top-10. He posted a time of 30.850 seconds, 175.041 mph.

There was only one on-track incident that occured during the three rounds of knockout qualifying. The incident happened during the second round of qualifying when John Wes Townley spun. With only five trucks posting a time when the red was displayed, there was much confusion on which drivers advanced. Some trucks was still able to get past the line who stayed out onto the track when the accident happend and was able to complete a lap when the 18 seconds expired.
