Todd Hazelwood will start the first race of the Dunlop Super2 Series finale in Newcastle on pole, while title rival Paul Dumbrell crashed in qualifying and will line up last.
Hazelwood starts the weekend 49 points behind Dumbrell, and topped qualifying with a 1:11.1469s lap of the 2.6km street circuit.
Dumbrell was at the foot of the order with nine minutes remaining and jumped up to 11th, only to then crash at Turn 1.
The session was red-flagged, which means Dumbrell lost his fastest lap and did not take any further part in the session, with his Eggleston Motorsport Commodore damaged.
Jack Le Brocq will join Hazelwood on the front row after finishing qualifying just 0.0964 seconds adrift.
Defending champion Garry Jacobson was third, ahead of Eggleston rookie Will Brown, while the MW Motorsport Altimas of Bryce Fullwood and Shae Davies will share the third row.
Richard Muscat, Macauley Jones, Anton de Pasquale and Nathan Morcom rounded out the top 10.
The penultimate race of the Super2 season starts at 2:35pm.
