Zane Smith (No. 41 LaPaz Margarita Mix/ICON Vehicle Dynamics Toyota) won the General Tire Pole Award for Saturday night's ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Kentuckiana Ford Dealers Fall Classic 200 at Salem Speedway. He turned a fast lap of 17.029 seconds/117.329 miles per hour to pick up his first pole award of the season.
 
"It's a great time to get our first pole of the season," he said. "We're trying to wrap up the Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge with a good finish here and at Indy. I am hoping to get a chance to move up the ladder so this might be the last time I get a chance to race on a short track with ARCA so we want to go out with a win."
 
Chandler Smith (No. 20 Craftsman Toyota) qualified second with a lap of 17.104/116.815 miles per hour, Michael Self (No. 55 Sinclair Lubricants Toyota) was third at 17.136/116.597, Salem spring winner Christian Eckes (No. 15 JBL Audio Toyota) was fourth at 17.214/116.068, and current championship leader Sheldon Creed (No. 28 Hardee's Toyota) rounded out the top five at 17.245/115.860.
