GALLAGHER GALLOPS TO TRUCK SERIES POLE

FORT WORTH, Texas (November 4, 2016) - Spencer Gallagher will lead a field of 32 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competitors to the green flag for Friday night’s Striping Technology 350 on-pole after Salute to Veterans Qualifying Days Powered by Texas Lottery at Texas Motor Speedway.

Gallagher toured TMS’ high-banked/1.5-mile quadoval in 29.949-seconds/180.307 mph in his No. 23 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet Silverado to bag his second Keystone Light Pole Award in 56 series starts. Gallagher shares a non-Chaser front row with Daniel Hemric, who qualified at 180.090 mph in his No. 19 Blue Gate Bank Ford F-150.

Gallagher, 26, earned his second pole and eighth top-10 start in 2016, as well as his first pole in five races at TMS. Hemric posted his 10th top-10 start of the season and fourth in four races in Fort Worth.

William Byron led the six Chasers who will contest the 220.5-mile/147-lapper. Byron, who won the Rattlesnake 400 here in June for Kyle Busch Motorsports, put up a lap at 179.934 mph in the No. 9 Liberty University Toyota Tundra. Fellow-Chaser Timothy Peters will start sixth after lapping at 179.748 mph in the No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota, with two-time series champion Matt Crafton seventh following his lap at 179.671 mph in the No. 88 DampRid/Menards Toyota.

Christopher Bell, who paced Friday morning’s rain-delayed practice, will start ninth after lapping at 179.384 mph in the No. 4 JBL Toyota. Ben Kennedy will roll off 14th in the No. 33 Jacob Chevrolet Silverado after lapping at 178.944 mph.

Johnny Sauter - whose victory at Martinsville Speedway last Saturday locked-up one of the Championship 4 starting spots - will start 16 here. The series veteran - who swept both Truck Series races at TMS in 2012 - lapped at 178.465 mph in the No. 21 Allegiant Travel Chevy.

Fox Sports 1 will begin its coverage at 7 p.m. (CDT), with the green to fly at 7:30.
