Wheeling the No. 29 BK Racing Ford at 110.539 mph in a second-lap attempt, road course veteran Alex Tagliani earned the Keystone Light Pole Award at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Saturday’s two-round qualifying session.

The Quebec native and road course veteran shattered the previous track record with a 80.084-second lap around the track.

This marks Tagliani’s first Camping World Truck Series start of 2015 and his second consecutive pole win in this event.

Tagliani’s late run took the top spot away from Erik Jones, who settled for second with a fastest lap of 110.492 mph in his No. 4 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota.

Reigning series champion Matt Crafton (110.113 mph), BKR’s Tyler Reddick (110.002 mph) and JR Motorsports’ Cole Custer (109.777 mph) rounded out the top five.

Reddick led the first round, propelling his No. 19 Ford at 110.276 mph, while teammate Tagliani drafted with him.

Robert Mitten brought out the red flag in the first round of qualifying when he smacked the tire wall off Turn 8, leaving his No. 53 Dodge nearly vertical. Mitten climbed out unharmed and ultimately secured a 22nd-place starting position.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is back on track Sunday at 1:30 p.m. ET for the Chevrolet Silverado 250 (FOX Sports 1, MRN, SiriusXM).
