Johnny Sauter scores pole for WinStar World Casino 400 at Texas Motor Speedway

He's not sure if it's the track or his grandma's chicken and dumplings, but Johnny Sauter loves Texas Motor Speedway. He's won the last two Camping World Truck races at the Great American Speedway and he added a pole to that tally. His lap of 180.222 mph bested Ty Dillon by .073 seconds.

Sauter has five poles in his Truck career and two of them are at TMS. Two of his eight career wins are at the mile-and-a-half oval and he's looking to make it three in a row.

Dillon wants to knock Sauter's name off the banner in victory lane and thinks the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevy is the truck to do it. 

Starting third will be rookie Jeb Burton, who was disappointed over his run. 

"You can't win them all," Dillon told him. 

Four-time Texas winner Brendan Gaughan lines up fourth and Miguel Paludo completes the top five.

Here's the full lineup. Note that only 32 trucks made the trip to Texas rather than the usual 36.
