Items of Note

  • A lot of the drivers will make very long runs in this practice to figure out how the tires will wear throughout a run as this track eats tires very quickly.
  • Kurt Busch ran in qualifying trim in the first practice and now he will run two different setups in this session over two 30-lap runs on each.
  • Aric Almirola got into the wall because of a wiggle coming...
