Daniel Suarez started off his double-duty weekend at Kentucky Speedway by earning his first career pole in the Camping World Truck Series.

Suarez was the 10th of 12 drivers to take time in the final round of qualifying on Thursday evening. His lap of 182.983 mph was fast enough to edge Brett Moffit (182.834), who is substituting for Matt Tifft at Red Horse Racing, and his Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate, William Byron (182.494).

Byron was unable to back up his lap from the first round when he was the fastest qualifier by breaking the 183 mph mark.

The Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 will be Suarez’s seventh start of the 2016 season. He is still looking for his first career series win.

Here is how qualifying played out:
