Michigan Nationwide pit stall assignments

Record fourth consecutive Coors Light Pole gives Dillon first pit pick

Austin Dillon set a NASCAR Nationwide Series record with his fourth consecutive Coors Light Pole. He also set a track record with a 191.882 mph circuit around Michigan International Speedway ahead of Saturday's Alliance Truck Parts 250.

Dillon led the first ever Richard Childress Racing top-three Nationwide Series qualifying sweep. RCR teammates Paul Menard and Brian Scott qualified second and third followed by Trevor Bayne and Alex Bowman.

The No. 3 team chose the first pit stall at pit out, heading into Turn 1. Menard's No. 33 team chose the 13th pit stall, which is the first opening closest to pit out. The No. 2 team chose the 23rd stall, right at the start/finish line.

Watch the Alliance Truck Parts 250 at 2 p.m. ET on ABC.
