John Hunter Nemechek won the pole for Friday night’s playoff opener at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.
This is the first time the Truck Series has raced at Indianapolis Raceway Park since 2011.
Heim is the only non-playoff driver starting in the top nine. Zane Smith, who won the regular season championship, qualified 21st — worst among the 10 playoff drivers.
Friday night’s race is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET on FS1.
