Max Gresham was fast when it counted today at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The Griffin Ga., native will start from the pole position in tomorrow’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East New England 125. 

This is Gresham’s third pole of the 2011 season in NASCAR’s developmental series. This is also his third start at “The Magic Mile.” Gresham’s best finish at NHMS came in 2009 where he finished ninth.

Gresham will pilot the No. 18 World Crown 300 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing.

“We had a real good run today,” said Gresham. “I went out 14th so it was good to get a draw where I could see what everyone else was doing. I just drove it as hard as I could. We all know that qualifying doesn’t mean much, I just hope I can be there at the end.”

Darrell Wallace Jr., will start second behind the wheel of his No. 6 U.S. Army Toyota and fellow Revolution Racing teammate Sergio Pena will go out third.

The New England 125 is slated to begin at 5 p.m. on Friday.

Great seats are still available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 weekend. To purchase tickets please call the NHMS ticket hotline at (603) 783-4931 or by visiting www.nhms.com.
