The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to action this weekend, racing at Darlington Friday night at 7:30 p.m. ET. The race airs on FS1 and will be available via live stream at FOX.com/live and through the Bally Sports app.

John Hunter Nemechek will be in the pole position for Friday’s race. He gained the spot through a performance-metric formula rather than traditional qualifying due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The metric is split into 25 percent comes from a driver’s finishing position from the previous race, 25 percent comes from the car owner’s finishing position from the previous race, 35 percent comes from the team owner’s points ranking, and 15 percent comes from the fastest lap from the previous race.

Austin Hill joins Nemechek on the front row. They are followed by Zane Smith and Ben Rhodes on the second row, and Todd Gilliland and Johnny Sauter on the third row. Nemechek is the favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +225. He is followed by Hill (+500), Sheldon Creed (+550), Smith (+700), and Rhodes (+850).

Rhodes is the defending champ, claiming the checkered flag last September. It marked the first Truck Series race at Darlington since 2011.

Here is the full lineup for Friday’s 2021 LiftKits4Less.com 200 truck race.
