With practice extended 12 minutes due to a mid-session red flag, Stewart Friesen roared to the top of the Camping World Truck Series speed chart late in Friday’s second and final practice session.
Friesen covered the .526-mile paper clip-shaped oval at 94.713 mph.
There was only one significant incident in the session:
Rookie Dawson Cram stopped on the frontstretch with about 31 minutes left after suffering what appeared to be an engine issue. The 16-year-old Cram is hoping to make his Truck Series debut in Saturday’s race.
Safety crews put Cram’s truck in a flat-bed to prevent further spreading of oil from his engine on the racetrack. As a result, the track was placed under red-flag conditions for approximately 12 minutes to clean up oil from Cram’s vehicle.
As a result, the end of practice was extended from 3:55 p.m. ET to 4:07 p.m. ET.
