Cale Conley will start on the pole for Friday’s “Drive Sober 150” presented by the Delaware Office of Highway Safety NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Dover International Speedway. He earned his third career series pole with a lap of 23.227 seconds around the Monster Mile, good for an average speed of 154.992 mph.
Area race fans will have a local name on the front row to cheer for. C.J. Faison, who hails from Seaford, Del., was an eyelash slower than Conley at 154.812 mph. He’ll be followed by Kyle Benjamin, Jesse Little, Cole Custer, and Austin Hill in the first three rows.
Those latter four are all rookies in the series, as is Gray Gaulding, who starts seventh. Benjamin is actually making his series debut in the race.
Points leader Dylan Kwasniewski will start 11th. He’s 23 points ahead of two-time Dover winner Brett Moffit, who will start eighth.
Friday’s race is the next-to-last on the K&N Pro East schedule. The year wraps up on October 18 at Road Atlanta.
The “Drive Sober 150” presented by the Delaware Office of Highway Safety NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race takes green flag at 4:45 p.m.
