BJ McLeod brought out the red flag for hitting the wall.  Tyler Reddick spun twice in the session.

“I was trying different things in the car to get more speed out of it, just kept finding the edge and crossing it and somehow not wrecking the car, which is a miracle,” Reddick told Fox Sports 1.

With about 10 minutes left, Ryan Reed made contact with the Turn 4 wall and spun.

“It’s ice once you get into the marbles,” Reed told FS1. Reed will not have to go to a backup car.
