CLICK: Full qualifying results from Texas
Tyler Reddick will start Friday night's WinStar World Casino & Resort 350 race from pole position, after successfully pipping Kyle Busch by 0.026s in the final round of qualifying at Texas Motor Speedway.
Reddick posted a time of 29.677s (181.959mph) in the top-12 pole shoot-out to secure his second pole of the season in 15 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races. The Brad Keselowski Racing driver took his maiden pole just two weeks ago at Talladega, and duly went on to finish the race in fourth place to match his best-ever result in the series to date.
On the second row of the grid behind Reddick and Busch will be championship leader (and defending series champion) Matt Crafton in the ThorSport #88 Toyota, lining up in third place alongside Ben Kennedy in the Turner Scott Motorsports #31 Chevrolet.
Crafton currently has an 18 point margin over Reddick's BKR team mate Ryan Blaney, with Busch's team mate Darrell Wallace Jr. a further four points back in the standings. Blaney will start Friday night's race from ninth place with Wallace one spot further up the grid in eighth.
All 12 of the drivers to make it through to the pole shoot-out nearly ended up losing the chance to make a final qualifying attempt, all of them cutting it very fine indeed waiting for the optimal track and weather conditions before heading out on track for their final runs.
In the end Reddick's pole-winning time wasn't quite the fastest lap of the entire qualifying session, with Wallace having gone nine thousandths of a second faster to top the second round of the three-step elimination format.
Among drivers failing to make it through to the final round were Joey Coulter (GMS Racing) who will start from 13th, German Quiroga (Red Horse Racing) in 15th, Ron Hornaday Jr. (NTS Motorsports) in 16th, Taylor Malsam (Turner Scott Motorsports) in 19th and Mason Mingus (Billy Boat Motorsports), who will start the floodlit race from 20th position.
All 32 drivers entered into this weekend's race successfully qualified for the grid and will take the green flag
