CONCORD, N.C. – Christian Eckes has drawn the pole for Saturday’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Eckes, driver of the No. 18 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports, claimed the pole thanks to a random draw that set the starting lineup for Saturday’s race. Tyler Ankrum will join him on the front row in the No. 26 GMS Racing Chevrolet.

The teams in positions 1-10 in the Truck Series owner standings drew for starting positions 1-10. Positions 11-21 and 22-32 were determined the same way, with any remaining teams being assigned starting positions 33-40 based on their order of eligibility.

Brett Moffitt will start third, followed by Austin Hill, Grant Enfinger, Kyle Busch, Zane Smith, Ben Rhodes, Sheldon Creed and Johnny Sauter.

Chase Elliott, who won the most recent NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, will start 13th.
