Ty Gibbs Fastest in Bristol Xfinity Qualifying

NBC Sports

BRISTOL, TN – Go out last and beat them all.  Ty Gibbs won the pole for Friday night’s Xfinity race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday afternoon.  Gibbs spoiled the show for Josh Berry, who will have to settle for a front row start after being one car away from his second career pole. Justin Allgaier will take the green flag in third, while points leader AJ Allmendinger and Sam Mayer will round out the top five.

Sammy Smith ran to a sixth-place effort in qualifying, while Jeb Burton scored his first top-10 start since June in seventh. Daniel Hemric and Noah Gragson qualified eighth and ninth, respectively, while Ryan Sieg — who is 19 points below Landon Cassill for the final playoff spot — put up a fast lap to complete the top 10.

The Food City 300 will take place on Friday, Sept. 16 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
