1 Comment

INDIANAPOLIS – Justin Haley posted the fastest lap in Friday’s final practice session for the Xfinity Series at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Haley led the way with a lap of 168.227 mph. He was followed by Tyler Reddick (168.199 mph), Brandon Jones (168.196), Austin Dillon (167.713) and Kyle Busch (167.710).

The only incident involved Michael Annett when his bumper cover was knocked off after contact from Mike Harmon. Annett’s team were repairing the car.

“Arguing with an idiot,” Annett said of his conversation with Harmon after the incident.

“Watched (Bell) go underneath him going into 3 so I was following the 20. He just kept coming down and coming down. … He just kept coming down. My left sides were on the curbing and in the grass. He said his spotter told him he was clear, he was coming down pit road. Spotter tells our spotter he never said anything. Just a bunch of idiots. We’re going too fast to have people like that out there. If he’s blaming it on the spotter, he better have someone else up there.”
