Final update: Rain wiped out the final round of qualifying. Anthony Alfredo had the quickest lap of the finalists during first round qualifying and thus claimed pole position. Austin Hill will join him on the front row.

Group B update: The top five in the second qualifying group were Ty Gibbs, Sheldon Creed, Connor Mosack, Justin Allgaier, and A.J. Allmendinger. They will advance to the final round of qualifying.

Group A update: The top five in the first qualifying group were Anthony Alfredo, Austin Hill, Daniel Hemric, Sam Mayer, and Jade Buford. They will advance to the final round of qualifying.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Portland, Oregon this week for the first time in nearly two decades. The Portland International Raceway will play host to the first annual Pacific Office Automation 147 on Saturday, June 4th. Qualifying for the race is set for Friday night at 8:05 p.m. ET, with the actual race on Saturday taking place at 4:30 p.m. ET. Both events will air on FS1.

Friday’s qualifying format will feature all cars having a 20-minute warm-up and practice. After that, the drivers will be separated into two groups. The drivers in Group A will run a one-lap qualifier with the top five fastest cars advancing to the final round of qualifying. Group B will then repeat this. The final 10 drivers will run another lap for the pole.
