NCWTS: Custer Scores Pole for UNOH 175 at New Hampshire
Cole Custer captured the pole for Saturday's UNOH 175 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway with a fast lap of 28.877 seconds, 131.897 mph. Custer will start on the pole for the second time of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career. He hopes that this will help him earn his first top-five as he has driven to four top-10's in six starts.
Cameron Hayley, who will roll off from the second starting spot, will be making just his second career start in the series. Hayley posted his fast time of 28.933 seconds, 131.642 mph. This will be the second time that he has qualified inside the top-10. The last time out at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, Hayley drove to a 11th-place finish, and hopes to even better that today. He was 0.056 seconds slower than Custer.
Darrell Wallace Jr. will start the UNOH 175 from the third spot after posting a fast time of 29.021 seconds, 131.243 mph. This will be the 10th time of the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season that Wallace started from inside the top-10. With the New Hampshire Motor Speedway being much like the Gateway Motorsports Park, Wallace has some momentum as he captured the win there back in June. Given this, He'll definately be a threat in the race today afternoon.
No on-track incidents occured during the two rounds of knockout qualifying. There will be no cars going home as only 30 showed up to race. Matt Crafton, who leads the driver points going into this event, will start in the back due to not making a qualifying attempt. Crafton's truck had an electrical issue and wasn't able to turn a lap.
