Kennington On Top At Mosport
Earns Pole For Tonight's Dickies 200

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada -- DJ Kennington earned his fourth NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 pole of the season in advance of the Dickies 200 at Mosport Speedway.

Kennington, driver of the No. 17 Castrol Edge Dodge, laid down a fast lap of 21.813 seconds (82.520 mph) at the half-mile oval. It was the first Mosport pole and seventh overall in the career of the Ontario native from St. Thomas. Kennington was also fastest in afternoon practice at Mosport.

Kennington edged Scott Steckly (21.888/82.237) and previous Mosport pole winner Don Thomason Jr. (21.931/82.076) for Saturday's pole position. Kerry Micks and Pete Shepherd III rounded out the top five qualifiers.

Track record-holder -- and current points leader -- JR Fitzpatrick will start along Shepherd in the third row for tonight's 200-lap race as he qualified sixth.
