Grant Enfinger wins Pole for Daytona Truck Series Opener

By  | 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Grant Enfinger backed up his confidence from Thursday Truck Series practice by setting the fast time for the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway on Friday night.

Enfinger is the defending ARCA Racing Series champion and advanced up the ladder with his entire championship winning team from last season. Enfinger isn’t yet sure if he will go full-time this season, and surely starting the campaign with a pole, will only help move things in the right direction.

“This is just a big deal for GMS Racing,” Enfinger said. “I’m really proud to be a part of this team and help put them on the pole at Daytona. This is the first time that we’ve hung our own superspeedway bodies and it’s a testament to the team that we were able to get the pole.”

Enfinger’s pole is the first of his career in seven career starts and his GMS Racing teammate Johnny Sauter earned will begin the race alongside him. Their other teammate, Spencer Gallagher, will start 11th.
