Phoenix Qualifying Rained Out; Ty Gibbs Awarded General Tire Pole

AVONDALE, Ariz. — A few minutes before Friday’s General Tire 150 qualifying session was scheduled to begin, rain began to fall on Phoenix Raceway. And it persisted long enough to cancel the session.

Due to the inclement weather, the starting lineup for Friday evening’s race will be set per the ARCA rulebook. Practice speeds from Friday afternoon’s hour-long session will determine the field.

Ty Gibbs, who ended the practice session having logged the fastest lap, earned the General Tire Pole Award for Friday night’s race at Phoenix by virtue of the cancellation of qualifying.

Corey Heim, who won the ARCA Menards Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway, will start alongside Gibbs on the front row. Drew Dollar, Taylor Gray and Gracie Trotter round out the top five.

Nick Sanchez, Jack Wood, Zane Smith, Thad Moffitt and Todd Souza complete the top 10 starters.

The race is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. MT / 7:30 p.m. ET and broadcast live on MAVTV Motorsports Network. A live stream of MAVTV’s broadcast will be available on TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold.

A radio broadcast of the General Tire 150 from Phoenix will be available on MRN and SiriusXM (XM channel 391, online channel 981).
