The Camping World Truck Series kicks off a two city triple header weekend in Long Pond, Pennsylvania at Pocono Speedway for the Gander Outdoors 150.

The track known as the Tricky Triangle is a three turn two mile track.

Brett Moffitt blew an engine in practice on Friday and then had issues with the new engine during qualifying. As a result, Moffitt will have to start the race at the back of the field.

A very ill Noah Gragson collapsed on pit road during qualifying and did not make a qualifying run. There is still some question as to whether or not he will be able to make the race.

After two rounds of qualifying with a new track record of 52.83 seconds, Kyle Busch wins his fourth pole in the truck series. Busch will bring the field to the green flag with team mate Todd Gilliland alongside.
