Hometown boy, hometown track, hometown success.

That’s why it’s not surprising Las Vegas native Kyle Busch was fastest in the second and final Xfinity Series practice session Friday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Busch covered the 1.5-mile track at 181.348 mph in his Toyota. The defending Sprint Cup champion led a Joe Gibbs Racing onslaught as Toyota drivers took three of the top four spots.

Ty Dillon was second-fastest (180.892 mph), followed by JGR drivers Erik Jones (180.800) and Daniel Suarez (180.771).

Brandon Jones was fifth-fastest at 180.644 mph.

The green flag for Saturday’s Boyd Gaming 300 will fall at approximately 4:16 p.m. ET.

Also, it was announced that Dylan Lupton withdrew from Saturday’s race due to what the team calls “a corrective technical glitch.” Lupton will race next week at Phoenix and will add the NXS race at Texas Motor Speedway on April 8 to his schedule to fulfill a three-race agreement with RSS Racing.
