NASCAR Nationwide Series points leader Sam Hornish Jr. won the Coors Light Pole Award and the right to the first pick of pit stall.
With 40 in the field, Kentucky Speedway doesn't use the first and 43rd stalls so Hornish and his No. 12 team chose the second stall, which is the first off of pit road into Turn 1.
His Penske Racing teammate, Ryan Blaney in the No. 22 car, chose the first stall with an opening, No. 14, which is eight stalls off of the start/finish line on the Turn 1 side.
The No. 22 team's rival in the owner standings, the No. 54 driven by Drew Herring, will pit across the opening in stall 13.
The Kentucky 300, the final standalone in the NASCAR Nationwide Series this year, rolls off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPNEWS
