“The crew brought me a fast Textron, Bama Buggies car and it’s really showing,” said Purdy, a Mississippi driver. “I’m the driver, but that’s not all what it takes. To be fast and to win my pole here at Memphis, it’s a really cool deal.”

Todd Gilliland qualified second in a Toyota at 113.203 mph, followed by Harrison Burton in another Toyota at 113.065. Tyler Dippel in a Ford and Ronnie Bassett Jr. in a Chevrolet rounded out the top five.
