Brandon Jones on pole for ARCA race

Friday, Jul 25 1765

Brandon Jones picked up where he left off by securing the pole for Friday's ARCA race at Lucas Oil Raceway (LOR).

Jones set a new track record of 22.268 seconds (110.904 mph). The 17-year-old driver was fastest in both practices on Friday and won the last time he raced in ARCA at Winchester Speedway at the beginning of July. He was also the only driver to break the old track record of 22.294 seconds.

Points leader Mason Mitchell will start next to Jones on the front row. Mitchell ran up front in the last ARCA race at LOR in 2012 and scored a fifth-place finish.

Mitchell's closest points pursuer Grant Enfinger qualified 15th in the No 90. Chevrolet for his first race with Gallagher Motorsports.

Tom Hessert, Ken Schrader and Justin Allison rounded out the top-five in qualifying. Hessert was in Schrader's 52 car in the 2012 race here and finished runner-up to Frank Kimmel. Matt Tifft, one of Schrader's drivers, qualified ninth in a second Ken Schrader Racng entry. Kimmel ended up 10th on the board.

Cody Coughlin had a rough start to the day by crashing in practice and forcing his No. 55 team to go a back-up. Coughlin got to qualify and placed 16th on the chart. The highest Venturini Motorsports driver in qualifying was Justin Boston in sixth.

Blake Hillard made his return to the ARCA series for the first time since Salem in April with an 11th-place qualifying effort. Kyle Weatherman will start next to him on the sixth row in the No. 60 Ford for the Roulo Brothers.

Qualifying was extremely close as the first 21 cars out of 24 who took time were separated by less than a second.

The SCOTT Get Geared Up 200 will be live at 9 p.m. ET Friday on FOX Sports 1.

Currently, I’m a journalism student in college who enjoys the sport of racing. I've been following NASCAR in-depth since 2001.

Along with my love of racing, I’m also into baseball, football (college & pro), and college basketball.

I also have my own website, The Life of Kyle, where I write about various topics.

And to get my feet wet into radio, I have my own show called Overdrive.  I started it with my friend.  Since we can’t record together most of the time, we have our own versions.  I cover NASCAR and ARCA, and he takes Formula One and IndyCar.

Not forgetting to mention, I have my own YouTube channel as well.

As for race tracks, I’ve gone to races at Pocono, Watkins Glen, Daytona, Dover, Loudon and a few local short tracks as well.  I hope to cross the Indianapolis 500 off my list in the future. I hope to become a man of many hats.
