Erik Jones fastest in only Truck Series practice at Iowa


Looking to end a four-race slump of bad things happening to a great Truck, Erik Jones got off to a good start by recording the fastest speed in the only practice session for the Camping World Truck Series’ race at Iowa Speedway.

In a nearly two and hall hour practice session on the 0.875-mile-track, Jones No. 4 Toyota laid down a fastest speed of 136.051 mph.

Jones, who won at Iowa last year as a part-time driver, was followed by Christopher Bell with a speed of 135.682 mph. Bell’s speed is noteworthy because the Norman, Okla., native is making his first-career start in the CWTS this weekend.

Rounding out the top-five was John Hunter Nemechek, Spencer Gallagher and Cameron Hayley.

Qualifying for the American Ethanol 200 begins at 5:45 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 2.
