Johnny Sauter Puts Silverado on the Pole at Texas

Ft. Worth, TX - Chevrolet Silverado drivers swept the top three starting positions at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) for the Winstar World Casino 400 and four of the top-five starting spots.

Johnny Sauter captured his first career NASCAR Camping World Series (NCWTS) pole position with a lap of 30.086 seconds and average speed of 179.485 m.p.h. He was followed by fellow Silverado driver and winner of the last two NCWTS races at TMS, Ron Hornaday, Jr. The runner-up position will be the best career start for Hornaday at TMS.

Johnny becomes the first rookie to sit on the pole in the Camping World Truck Series since Scott Speed at Bristol last fall.

Sauter's ThorSport Racing teammate Matt Crafton, No. 88 Australian Gold Silverado qualified third and Dennis Setzer, fresh off a runner-up finish at Dover, put the No. 8 Malcolmson Silverado in the fifth starting position.
