CONCORD, N.C. – Jeb Burton will have the distinction of leading the NASCAR Xfinity Series field at the start of the first event for the series on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course.
Burton, who will drive the No. 8 Chevrolet for JR Motorsports, drew the pole for Saturday’s Pennzoil 150 following a random draw on Thursday. He’ll be joined on the front row by his JR Motorsports teammate Michael Annett.
Starting positions 1-12 were randomly drawn from the first 12 teams based on the Adverse Conditions Line Up Eligibility. Positions 13-24 and positions 25-36 were determined the same way. Any other eligible teams were assigned positions 37-40 based on their order of eligibility.
Brandon Jones will start third, followed by Ryan Sieg, Justin Allgaier, Harrison Burton, Anthony Alfredo, Noah Gragson, Ross Chastain and Austin Cindric.
Since it is the first race for the series on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course, NASCAR has scheduled two practices on Friday. The first runs from 1:30 to 2:25 p.m. EST, with the second set for 3 to 3:55 p.m.
