Allmendinger was third-quickest of five drivers to set a time when he completed a 1:15.379s in the #16 Chevrolet but that lap – and the rest on the board at that point – was soon bettered by van Gisbergen's 1:14.677s. NASCAR


Richard Childress Racing team-mates Austin Hill (#21 Chevrolet) and Jesse Love (#2 Chevrolet) then set a 1:15.118s and 1:15.459s respectively.

Allmendinger was third-quickest of five drivers to set a time when he completed a 1:15.379s in the #16 Chevrolet but that lap – and the rest on the board at that point – was soon bettered by van Gisbergen's 1:14.677s.

Gibbs went for a second run but was unable to improve, although he remained on the front row.

The rest of the top 10 was Hill, Allmendinger, Justin Allgaier (#7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet), Love, John Hunter Nemechek (#20 JGR Toyota), Sam Mayer (#1 JRM Chevrolet), Sheldon Creed (#18 JGR Toyota), and Sammy Smith (#8 JRM Chevrolet).

Back in Round 1 of Qualifying, van Gisbergen was in Group A, but he and team-mate Josh Williams (#11 Chevrolet) were in no rush to exit pit lane.

Gibbs went out in the initial bunch of cars and laid down a 1:15.348s which became the time to beat.

Eventually, both Williams and van Gisbergen appeared, with the former following his road course star of a team-mate but inevitably losing touch with the #97 Camaro.

They took their time bringing their tyres up before van Gisbergen nailed a 1:14.804s on his second lap to better the field by half a second, with Williams clocking a 1:16.809s.

Gibbs sat second, from RCR team-mates Hill and Love, before Cole Custer (#00 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford) moved into fifth with a 1:15.759s.

However, Custer was knocked out of the top five when Nemechek went fourth on a 1:15.381s.

That was how the top five remained, with van Gisbergen among those not in need of a second run, while Williams could not improve when he went back out and ended up 13th in the group.

In Group B, Creed set the pace on a 1:15.427s in the #18 Toyota, with four Chevrolet drivers joining him in advancing.

The schedule for the rest of the day is Cup Qualifying from 18:00 ET/08:00 AEST and the Xfinity Race from 20:00 ET/10:00 AEST.
