Justin Boston will start on the pole for Saturday’s ARCA Mobile 200 after recording the fastest time during Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell Friday evening.
Boston, in the No. 25 ZLOOP Computer & Electronics Recycling Toyota, won his third Menards pole award on Mosquito Patch Pole Night at Mobile International Speedway. His other two poles came at Salem Speedway during the 2013 season.
“We came here for one reason, and that’s to win the race,” Boston said.
He will be joined on the front row at Mobile International Speedway by Mason Mitchell in the No. 98 Thermal Technology Services Ford. Mitchell has a streak of 10 straight top 10 finishes in the ARCA Racing Series.
Starting third will be the Cunningham Motorsports SCOTT Rookie Challenge candidate Anderson Bowen. Bowen, 16, was one of three Cunningham cars in the top six, ahead of Austin Wayne Self in the AM Technical Solutions Dodge (fifth) and Tom Hessert in the Caregard-Axiom Warranty.com Dodge No. 72 (sixth).
Grant Enfinger, defending race winner, will start fourth in the Motor Honey-Casite Ford No. 90.
Boston credited his crew chief, Kevin Reed, and his Venturinin Motorsports team.
“They make me look good,” Boston, a native of Baltimore, Maryland, said. “It’s definitely been a special start to our weekend.”
Boston is looking for his first career ARCA victory. He is in his second season on the tour and added Reed as his crew chief this season. Reed was the crew chief for six ARCA victories last season.
Saturday will be the third ARCA Mobile 200. The first two winners were Alabama natives Cale Gale and Enfinger.
