Burton will start on the front row alongside Brendan Gaughan, whose speed of 184.120 mph was behind Burton's mark of 185.759. James Buescher, Max Gresham and Ty Dillon round out the top five. Ryan Blaney, who won in last Truck Series race at Pocono, was 19th.

Nelson Piquet Jr., who won at Michigan last season, is not participating this year because he is competing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
