GMS Racing has been a roll as of late after winning the last two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, and Spencer Gallagher kept the momentum going as the 26-year-old scored his second career pole.

Gallagher was the quickest truck in the first round of qualifying, and was able to keep the position as the teams transitioned to the second round. Gallagher’s fast lap of 29.949 was quicker than Daniel Hemric by just four one-hundredths of a second.

“All the credit in the world to the guys back in the shop,” Gallagher said after qualifying. “Amazing to see such a great effort out of GMS Racing.”

William Byron, who won at Texas Motor Speedway in June, qualified third followed by Matt Tifft and Tyler Reddick.

Timothy Peters, Matt Crafton, Ben Rhodes, Christopher Bell and Daniel Suarez rounded out the top-10.

Chasers Ben Kennedy and Johnny Sauter qualified 14th and 17th respectively.

Tommy Regan, Mike Harmon and Ryan Ellis all failed to qualify for tonight’s Striping Technology 350 at Texas.
