Jeb Burton takes the pole at Charlotte
May 17, 2013, Staff report, NASCAR.com
Jeb Burton continued his mastery of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series qualifying, claiming the pole position for Friday night's N.C. Education Lottery 200 by scooting to a fast lap of 181.372 mph at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The pole was Burton's third in just five races this season and the third of his career. The second-generation driver -- who was also the fastest qualifier at Martinsville and Rockingham -- will start first in the 201-mile event, which will be televised live on SPEED at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Ty Dillon qualified second-fastest in a Richard Childress Chevrolet at 180.294 mph on the 1.5-mile track. His speed was identical to Timothy Peters' qualifying lap, but Dillon will start second in the race based on his higher status in the series points standings (fifth to Peters' 13th).
Kyle Busch and Miguel Paludo completed the top five in Friday afternoon qualifying.
Justin Lofton -- last year's Charlotte winner, making just his second truck start this season -- qualified sixth. German Quiroga qualified 10th before smacking the wall and damaging the right-rear fender on his Red Horse Racing Toyota.
