Landon Cassill and Brandon Gdovic will start the race in 31st and 32nd place on the grid. Behind them will be Jordan Anderson, Kyle Weatherman, Bayley Currey, and JJ Yeley. Finally, Dexter Bean, David Starr, CJ McLaughlin, and Spencer Boyd will prop up the rear of the NASCAR Xfinity field.

Jeb Burton has been in decent form in the Xfinity Series and even has one win under his belt. Aside from that, he has enjoyed several Top 10 finishes this season and is currently in sixth in the standings. This obviously means that he is safe enough to qualify for the playoffs, but there are still a handful of races left for things to change, and the pole surely helps.
