Nemechek On Kansas Truck Pole

(KANSAS CITY, KS - MAY 14, 2022 - RIS) John Hunter Nemechek has become the second-generation “Front Row” qualifier in the family, joining his father Joe in posting fast qualifying times. This time, he qualified on pole position for the Heart of America 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway. Corey Heim will start second, with Ty Majeski and Zane Smith third and fourth.

Stewart Friesen’s arrival at Kansas was delayed by Mother Nature and travel woes so Bubba Wallace practiced and qualified the No. 52. Wallace’s efforts will not really count at the start, as Friesen eventually arrived at the track and will start the race, albeit from the back of the field because of the driver change.
