William Byron – 35 minutes into practice while he was 23rd he said the last set of changes didn’t help him much. He’s still bouncing the nose in the first half of the run and feels just too loose.
Austin Dillon – 25 minutes into practice while he was 8th he said his car is a bit snug and gets tighter in traffic. The adjustments helped but not quite enough. 35 minutes into practice while he was 8th he wanted the front of his car to turn better. His crew chief told him his lap times are really good.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. – Did pit road practice so he can try to avoid a speeding penalty. In 2 of the 3 races this year he’s gotten a speeding penalty. Has a fast car. Late in practice he said, “It’s shaking the back loose, like it did the first few runs.”
Kevin Harvick – Very fast. Had great speed this practice session. Jeff Gordon thought his car looked solid.
Brad Keselowski – Showed really good speed this session. Feels good about his chances. Last fall when he raced here (finished 2nd) he hit on something he really liked.
