FIRST PRACTICE

Tyler Reddick was fastest in an incident-shortened first Xfinity Series practice session Friday afternoon at Texas Motor Speedway.

Reddick paced the field with a speed of 187.493 mph, the only driver to exceed 187 mph.

Points leader Christopher Bell was second-fastest (186.406 mph), followed by Cole Custer (185.230 mph), Brandon Jones (185.223) and Austin Cindric (185.077).

The session was shortened slightly due to a red flag stoppage. With less than five minutes remaining, Ryan Sieg lost control of the No. 39 Chevrolet exiting Turn 4, backed into the outside wall, bounced off and crossed the track before slamming head-on into the inside wall. No other cars were involved in the incident.

Sieg got out of the car under his own power and was taken to the infield care center. The car was destroyed, which means the team will have to go to a backup for the remainder of the weekend.

A total of 34 cars took to the 1.5-mile high-speed oval.

The second Xfinity practice will take place later this afternoon between 4:05 – 4:55 p.m. ET.
