CONCORD, N.C. – NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series championship leader Austin Hill will start Saturday’s race at Homestead-Miami Speedway from the pole.

Hill, driver of the No. 16 Hattori Racing Enterprises Toyota, was randomly selected to start the race from the top position via a random draw. He’ll be joined on the front row by NASCAR Cup Series star Kyle Busch in the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota.

The field was set via a random draw, with positions 1-10 in series owner points drawing for those positions in the starting field. The same was done for positions 11-21 and 22-32, with positions 33-40 being assigned based on order of eligibility.

Grant Enfinger, winner of the most recent series event at Atlanta Motor Speedway, will start third. He’ll be followed by rookie Christian Eckes, Ben Rhodes, Zane Smith, Derek Kraus, Sheldon Creed, Brett Moffitt and Johnny Sauter.

NASCAR Cup Series star Chase Elliott, who won the Truck Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May, is scheduled to start 16th.
