SONOMA, California – The only thing hotter than the temperature at Infineon Raceway on Friday was Eric Holmes, who captured his third Coors Light Pole Award of the season in NASCAR Camping World Series West competition with a lap of 91.805 mph.

Holmes of nearby Escalon, Calif., will lead a 40-car field to the green flag on Saturday for the Bennett Lane Winery 200 presented by Supercuts.

Holmes did not let the triple digit heat on Friday slow him down as he charged around the twisting 1.99-mile course to nab his first pole on the Northern California track.

P.J. Jones, returning to the event where he finished second last year, qualified second quickest. Jason Bowles turned in the third-fastest time, followed by David Mayhew and Todd Souza.

Holmes has won three of five races this season in the NASCAR Camping World Series West, but trails long-time friend and rival Mike David by 35 points in the championship standings. David - whose sponsor, Bennett Lane Winery, is also sponsor of the event – qualified 10th.
