Qualifying for the Best in the Desert Silver State 300 was held today just outside Las Vegas in Jean, Nevada, on the site where the old Nevada Landing Hotel and Casino once stood.

Dale Dondale, driving for Tracy Graf, won the top honors for the second time in a row with over 5 seconds in hand over the rest of the field.

Forty of the top teams lined up to take their shot at the pole position for Saturday’s race on a tight, twisty, switchback filled 1.2-mile course  on which they’d make a two-lap run.

Sam Berri is always a threat for the pole but was narrowly edged out for the top spot.
