COTA Xfinity starting lineup: Ty Gibbs scores pole

AJ Allmendinger predicts faster lap times this year compared to when NASCAR raced at Circuit of the Americas last season, largely due to the bigger brakes on the next gen setup, and takes questions from fans.

Ty Gibbs, coming off a win last weekend at Atlanta, won the pole for Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at Circuit of the Americas.

Gibbs won the pole with a lap of 91.258 mph on Friday.

It’s his second career series pole. His previous pole was last year at Road America.

Ross Chastain (90.869 mph) qualified second and was followed by Cole Custer (90.861), AJ Allmendinger (90.532) and Alex Labbe (90.362).
