HOMESTEAD, Fla. – Kyle Larson will lead the field to the green flag for the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race of the season tonight during the Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Larson’s Keystone Light Pole Award lap was 32.252 seconds at 167.431 mph. The run marks his second pole of the season. He sat on the pole at Pocono Raceway back in August. Larson was fastest during Round 1, and then he followed that effort up by running the second fastest lap in Round 2.

Ryan Blaney will start second, followed by Ross Chastain, Tyler Reddick and Kyle Busch, who posted his ninth top-10 start in 10 races this season. Point leader, Matt Crafton will start sixth tonight. He leads Ryan Blaney in the standings by only 25 points. If Crafton is able to hold, he will capture his first career series championship.

Austin Hill and Jordan Anderson will be making their second career starts tonight. Hill finished 26th at Martinsville Speedway in October, and Anderson finished 24th last weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. Tonight, Hill starts 26th, and Anderson will start 31st.
