Ty Dillon – Early in practice it was reported that he was struggling in the corners. 20 minutes into practice he said, “Fired off pretty good, but it got tighter in the center as I ran.” Midway thru practice he said, “Those changes freed me up where I need it to, but we need to make an adjustment with the left rear.” At the end of practice he said, “I need a more stable entry to be able to arc out like I need to.”
Aric Almirola – His team worked on getting his car to turn better in the center of the corners. He was 14th on the speed chart early.
