LAS VEGAS — Matt Crafton scored his second Keystone Light Pole Award of the season and the ninth of his Camping World Truck Series career after taking the pole for tonight’s Rhino Linings 350 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Crafton, driver of the No. 88 ThorSport Racing Toyota, was the fastest driver in the lone practice session for tonight’s 146-lap race and will lead the field to green off of the strength of a 30.613 lap set in single-truck qualifying.

John Wes Townley will share the front row with Crafton after turning in a lap of 30.724 seconds – 111 thousandths of a second off of Crafton’s lap.

Brandon Jones, Timothy Peters, Christopher Bell, Cameron Hayley, Austin Theriault, Mason Mingus, Ben Kennedy and Spencer Gallagher will take the green flag in the respective third-through-tenth positions.

Championship contenders Tyler Reddick and Erik Jones each qualified outside of the top-10 with Reddick taking the 11th spot on the starting grid while Jones will take the green from the 15th starting position.

The Rhino Linings 350 will get underway 10:00 p.m ET and will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1 and MRN.
