Dillon takes NASCAR Camping World Truck Series pole at Talladega

[media-credit id=100 align=”alignright” width=”186″][/media-credit]Ty Dillon came to Talladega Superspeedway with just a one point advantage over James Buescher in the series standings. If the twenty year old rookie driver is under any pressure, he isn’t showing it. Dillon took the top starting spot for Saturday’s Fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola with a lap of 177.291 mph. It was his third career pole in just twenty one starts in the series.

Dillon is following in the footsteps of his older brother and making a name for himself in the series with an eye locked on one day piloting a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car for his grandfather, team owner Richard Childress (RCR).

Jason White, driver of the No.23 Gunbroker.com Ford will start second, Buescher third, Aric Almirola fourth and Cale Gale starts fifth.

Kurt Busch had to settle for the sixth starting spot after leading the final practice session.

“I’m more of a rookie than all of the rest of these guys when it comes to the draft, because they’ve been doing it the last few years. The last time I did a restrictor plate truck race was back in 2000. It’s been a while.” Busch said.

Other notables: Championship contender Timothy Peters and recent series winner Nelson Piquet Jr. will start eighth and fourteenth respectively.

“It is handling good. We unloaded our Tundra and it was really good. We drafted just a little bit to save our equipment and that will give us a good solid starting position and as long as we can complete 94 laps we’ll be alright.” Peters said.

The green flag will drop on the Fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola at 3:00pm Saturday.
