***This practice was mostly comprised of drivers practicing in qualifying trim.
Jimmie Johnson – Spun early in practice, didn’t hit anything. Using his Michigan chassis that was strong. About half way through practice he said, “That was nice”. Later he was having some sort of electrical issue. Later he had smoke coming out of his car. It was a radiator/oil cooler problem.
Martin Truex Jr. – Said his car feels pretty good overall. Focused exclusively on qualifying trim.
Brian Vickers – Tight. Entry is fine in turn #1 but he’s loose in turn #3. Later he said his car was better but he’s loose on entry.
Joey Logano – Very loose. Said it’s like riding on ice. Those comments were made while he was practicing in race trim.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. – Just did qualifying runs in this practice. Happy with his car. Good drive off.
