Ben Kennedy won the Keystone Light Pole Award on Saturday for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Hyundai Construction Equipment 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway (5:30 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1).

This is the Red Horse Racing driver’s first pole award at Atlanta and the first of his Camping World Truck Series career.

Kennedy was the only driver who made it to the start/finish line in time to log a lap in the third round of qualifying.

Initially, Brad Keselowski was ruled to have started his lap — which was quicker than Kennedy’s — and was announced as the pole winner before the reversal came later in the afternoon.

Lining up next to Kennedy on the front row is Kyle Busch Motorsports driver Erik Jones, who finished second last week at Daytona. Cameron Hayley, Daniel Suarez and John Wes Townley round out the top-five starters.

Last week’s winner at Daytona, Tyler Reddick, qualified 11th. Matt Crafton, the defending Camping World Truck Series champion, will line up 15th.
