Tyler Reddick on Camping World Truck Series Pole at Texas

Tyler Reddick scored his second career Keystone Light 21 Means 21 Pole Award and earned his second pole in three races by besting Kyle Bush, Matt Crafton and Ben Kennedy for the top starting spot in the 16th Annual WinStar World Casino and Resort 350 at Texas Motor Speedway.

The knockout-style time trial turned into a standoff as the twelve drivers who advanced to the final round waited for just the right moment to start their final banzai-style run. Johnny Sauter finally led the charge off pit road, but much like Talladega -- where Reddick won his first pole -- those behind the leader get the advantage of the draft to pull them around the 1.5-mile, high-banked track.

Cameron Hayley of Calgary, Alberta, Canada makes his second series start from the fifth position, with Jeb Burton, Timothy Peters, Darrell Wallace Jr., Ryan Blaney, Bryan Silas, Brennan Newberry and Johnny Sauter filling out the top twelve.

Billed as "No Limits, Texas," Texas Motor Speedway lends itself to intense racing for the Truck Series. Keep an eye on Johnny Sauter, who swept both races in 2012, and who says he's moved on after his run-in with Timothy Peters last week at Martinsville. Since the incident effectively ended Sauter's championship hopes, it's not likely he's been able to put it completely aside.

Kyle Busch hopes to sweep the weekend by winning in all three series. Since he has six wins in his eight Truck starts this season, he stands a reasonable chance of continuing that streak at TMS, where he has two CWTS victories.

Check out all the action starting at 7:30 pm CT tonight on Fox Sports 1.
