Elliott Sadler – His splitter was hitting the track in the opening laps. Later he said the changes done to his car helped.
Martin Truex Jr. – Started practice in race trim and was at the top of the charts early.
Juan Pablo Montoya – Was tight in the middle in race trim.
Jeff Gordon – Didn’t like his car early and said it was to bouncy early in practice. Says he has work to do. Scuffed tires. Went to qualifying trim with about 50 minutes remaining. Said there’s no grip.
