David Gilliland will start on the pole of Saturday’s Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.
Gilliland qualified first with a top speed of 180.570 mph. It is his second Truck Series pole in 14 starts. Both came this year (Daytona).
Gilliland is joined on the front row by Spencer Gallagher (180.550 mph).
Gilliland’s son, Todd Gilliland, qualified sixth for his first race on a superspeedway.
“It’s the most meaningful race I’ve ever raced and here we are on the pole,” David Gilliland told Fox Sports 2.
