Chase Briscoe played spoiler in Friday’s qualifying for the Ford EcoBoost 200 with a pole-winning speed of 167.499mph.

For Briscoe, it was his fourth pole of the Camping World Truck Series season.

“You’re my hero,” crew chief Buddy Sisco told his driver.

“I’m so proud of the whole Brad Keselowski Racing team,” Briscoe said.

Ben Rhodes will share the front row with Briscoe. BKR’s Austin Cindric—the top-qualifying driver in the Championship 4—posted the third fastest lap followed by Grant Enfinger, Noah Gragson, Ryan Truex, Justin Haley and Matt Crafton.

Johnny Sauter was the 12th truck to post a lap and had to settle for 11th.

“I about wadded it up in 1 and 2 there,” Sauter said.

Crafton was the first truck to take a lap in the second round and wasn’t pleased with his initial lap of 165.614mph which ended up eighth-quick. Stewart Friesen, Kaz Grala, Sauter and Myatt Snider rounded out the top 12.
