ROCKINGHAM, N.C. -- Rookie Jeb Burton won the pole for Sunday afternoon's North Carolina Education Lottery 200, leading morning qualifying at Rockingham Speedway with a fast lap of 146.909.

Burton, driving the No. 4 Chevrolet for Turner Scott Motorsports, will start on the pole position for the second straight week in the NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series. The son of former Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton, who notched his first Sprint Cup win at Rockingham, scored his first career pole in the series last weekend at Martinsville Speedway.

Defending series champion James Buescher will start on the outside of the front row in Sunday's 200-miler (2 p.m. ET, SPEED) after logging the second-fastest qualifying lap at 146.580. Rookies Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott will start third and fourth. Veteran Matt Crafton, scheduled to break Terry Cook's series record with his 297th consecutive start, will start fifth.

Joey Logano, fresh from a fifth-place finish in Saturday night's Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway, arrived in Rockingham to claim the seventh starting spot. Series points leader Johnny Sauter, winner of the first two truck races to start the season, will start 11th. 

Clay Greenfield, TJ Bell, Spencer Gallagher and Andy Seuss failed to make the 36-truck field. Seuss crashed in Turn 2 on his first qualifying lap; he was uninjured.
