Brandon Jones was able to edge Ryan Reed in round two of qualifying to start on the pole for the PowerShares QQQ 300 at the Daytona International Speedway.
It will be the first time both drivers will start on the front row in their career with Jones best start being fourth, coming at Iowa in 2015 and Bristol in 2016. Reed’s previous best start in the series came at Phoenix last season where he started third.
The first two rows of the field are filled with some of the NASCAR Xfinity Series young guns with Brennan Poole starting third and NASCAR Xfinity Series Rookie Daniel Hemric starting fourth.
Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series stars Ty Dillon and Brad Keselowski will start fifth and sixth.
For the first time since this race in 2012, a Toyota will not start in the Top-12. Last season it seemed that Toyota almost dominated qualifying with Joe Gibbs Racing sweeping the front row nineteen times. The best starting Toyota will be Matt Tifft who starts 14th.
Since 44 cars were entered in today’s race, four teams are packing up and going home and that list has the No. 89 of Morgan Shepherd, the No. 74 of Mike Harmon, No. 97 of Stephen Leicht, and the No. 13 of Mark Thompson.
