Erik Jones put the No. 20 GameStop/Mortal Kombat X Toyota on the NASCAR Xfinity Series 21 Means 21 pole with a blistering lap of 185.166 mph around the high banks of Texas Motor Speedway.

The 18-year-old just graduated to superspeedways at the Great American Speedway last June in the Camping World Truck Series, but seems to have a handle on qualifying at them with back-to-back first place starts.

Next to Jones on the front row is Brad Keselowski in the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford with his lap of 184.862 mph, followed by Austin Dillon in the No. 33 Ruud Chevy. Rookie Daniel Suarez, in the No. ARRIS Toyota, starts fourth, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. leads team JRM with his fifth-place starting spot.
