“It’s no secret I was absolutely terrible on road courses for a long time,” Reddick told FS1. “… I really focused in the offseason to be better and put a lot of work into this, this whole team did.”

Kyle Larson joins Reddick on the front row.

Austin Cindric starts third and has Kyle Busch, who won Saturday’s Xfinity race, next to him in the second row. William starts fifth. Joey Logano starts sixth.

Qualifying was held in dry conditions. The Cup race is scheduled to take the green flag at 2:43 p.m. ET
