The Joe Gibbs Racing driver is making his first start at the track.

“Our GameStop/Turtle Beach Camry is pretty fast on the short run, I think we need to work on a long run a little bit more,” Bell told Fox Sports 1. “This place is really unique. I’ve never experienced a race track of this size where you use as much brake as you do, especially getting into Turn 1 there.”
Nemechek, who is also making his first start at the track, recorded the most laps with 33. He was 11th on the speed chart (176.648).
He also had the best 10-lap average at 173.500 mph.
