Stewart Friesen, who holds the final playoff spot with two races left in the regular season for the Gander Outdoors Truck Series, posted the fastest lap in Wednesday’s final practice session at Eldora Speedway.
Qualifying races the feature will be Thursday night.
Chase Briscoe showed his dirt track roots, being fastest in the first of two practices Wednesday at Eldora Speedway.
Briscoe, who won Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at Iowa Speedway, covered Eldora’s half-mile dirt racing surface at a speed of 93.473 mph. Briscoe also comes into Thursday’s Eldora Dirt Derby as the defending winner from last year’s race there.
Series veteran Matt Crafton was second-fastest (92.874 mph), followed by Brett Moffitt (92.450 mph), Stewart Friesen (92.398 mph) and Sheldon Creed (92.237 mph).
A second practice session is scheduled later tonight between 9 and 9:55 p.m. ET. Like the first practice, there is no TV coverage for the second practice, either.
