Harrison Burton paces only ARCA practice, wins pole at Pocono

When the ARCA Menards Series teams got to Pocono Raceway this morning, they would have to wait for nearly half the morning to get on track. Showers and thunderstorms were in the area and made for a wet race track.

Weepers were also a problem during track drying and with limited time, ARCA officials decided to forego qualifying and used the shortened practice session to set the field for today’s race.

Harrison Burton was the fastest in the 30-minute practice session and will start on the pole for the  General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible 200. This continued Venturini Motorsports’ hot streak of earning a front row starting spot. This will be his first pole in the ARCA Menards Series in over 14 races for the 18-year-old.

Last week’s winner, Ty Majeski, was fifth fastest in the practice session thus earning him a fifth place starting spot.
