Qualifying for NASCAR’s Xfinity race has a first — Tyler Reddick claimed his first career pole with a speed of 181.117 miles per hour.
But there was another but of an oddity.
No playoff drivers finished in the top 5.
After Reddick, the nest drives, in order, are Erik Jones, Ryan Blaney, Christopher Bell and Austin Dillon. By finishing No. 6, William Byron was the highest qualifying playoff driver.
Playoff drivers then finished in the 7-11 spots, 13 and 15.
