Young’s Motorsports driver Leland Honeyman (No. 02) has won the pole for tonight’s Pensacola 200 at Five Flags Speedway.

Taylor Gray (No. 17), Jake Finch (No. 1), Sammy Smith (No. 18), Ashton Higgins (No. 49), Christian Rose (No. 42), and Brandon Varney (No. 44) followed and all clocked a lap in the 17-second range.

The young driver for Young’s is set to run the entirety of the ARCA Menards Series East schedule.

The 79-year old Benny Chastain took a hard hit during his qualifying lap. While the crash caused significant damage to his car, Chastain appeared to be walking around and healthy after the incident.

Earlier, with a lap of 17.456 seconds, Taylor Gray set the quickest time in the practice session for tonight’s race. Most drivers ran around 30-40 laps.

All 16 cars in the field were able to clock a lap in the practice session, though the No. 06 of Nate Moeller did not enter the track during qualifying.

Race action is set to begin at 8:00PM ET on FloRacing.
