Allgaierran a lap of 29.591 seconds at 182.488 mph to hold onto the top spot in the third and final round of the morning session, besting Austin Dillon (181.519), Ryan Blaney (181.378), Daniel Hemric (181.324) and Kevin Harvick (181.245).

Alllgaier steadily improved on his speed from the first two round of qualifying after running ninth in the opening round and fourth in Round Two. He headed out in the final round as the first car to officially post a time and jumped right to the top if of the leaderboard.

Much like Thursday's Cup Series qualifying, several teams had difficulty getting through technical inspection, including Cup regular Brad Keselowski and Dakoda Armstrong, who both were unable to make a qualifying attempt after their cars failed to make it through tech before the end of the front round. They will start 39th and 40th, respectively, in Saturday's race.

Jeff Green and Jordan Anderson failed to qualify for the event.
