He had more than one second (1.069) lead over Kaz Grala (94.525 m.p.h.).

FIRST PRACTICE

Rain kept most of the competitors off the track since Saturday’s race at Watkins Glen is scheduled to run under dry conditions.

Rookies are required to make at least one lap in practice, so that drove a few drivers onto the track.

With a lap of 89.513 m.ph., Tyler Reddick topped the speed chart among five drivers who made laps.

He beat Austin Cindric (89.344) by .187 seconds

Justin Haley (86.891) Christopher Bell (82.232), and Ryan Preece (81.648) were the only drivers to take time.

Haley (2) was the only driver who turned more than one lap.
