As he looks to solidify his position into the Final Four for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship, Nick Sanchez and Rev Racing have once again brought incredible qualifying speed to the track.
Driving the No. 2 Gainbridge Chevrolet Silverado, Sanchez posted a blistering lap in Friday’s time trials from Homestead-Miami Speedway, laying down a time of 32.319 seconds (167.084mph) to win the pole for Saturday’s Baptist Health Cancer Care 200.
The Tampa, Florida native was more than two-tenths of a second quicker than second-place qualifier Carson Hocevar in Friday’s time trials session, gapping the remainder of the field by over a mile-per-hour.
Hocevar, also still in post-season contention, will start alongside Sanchez for Saturday’s 200-mile contest, while Grant Enfinger and Ty Majeski will start directly behind them in third and fourth place.
Rounding out the top-five, in the No. 5 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro for TRICON Garage, was Dean Thompson, who earned his second consecutive starting position inside the top-five, as he chases his first career victory.
Tanner Gray will start Saturday’s event from sixth place, with Zane Smith, Corey Heim, Stewart Friesen, and Christian Eckes rounding out the top-10. Ben Rhodes was the only driver still in the Playoffs to start outside the top-10, earning a starting spot of 21st.
Other notables include Rajah Caruth 13th, Jake Garcia 15th, Brad Perez 18th, Hailie Deegan 20th, Matt Crafton 22nd, and Marco Andretti 27th.
Trevor Bayne (Rackley WAR), Jonathan Shafer (On Point Motorsports), and Armani Williams (G2G Racing) all had mechanical issues during practice, and thus, were unable to post a qualifying lap, and will start 32nd through 34th.
