After weather at Martinsville Speedway from Thursday’s rain showers, forced a delay in what was suppose to be Friday morning’s NCWTS Kroger 250 first practice session, the decision was made to combine the series’ two practice sessions into one long “Happy Hour” (final) practice. At the conclusion of the session, three (out of five) Sunoco Rookie of the Year contenders were in the top-10, as Jeb Burton, with a lap speed of 96.244 mph, took the honor of being the (over-all) quickest on the speed chart.

Second quickest was Johnny Sauter with a lap speed of 96.239 mph and was followed by Ron Hornaday, Jr. (96.010 mph) who was third quickest, Brendan Gaughan (95.728 mph) fourth and rookie contender, Darrell Wallace, Jr. (95.675 mph) was fifth quickest.

Rounding out the top-10 quickest in the final practice session were Ty Dillon (95.583 mph) who was sixth quickest, Nelson Piguet, Jr. (95.550) seventh, rookie contender German Quiroga, Jr. (95.453) eighth, Matt Crafton (95.319) ninth and Miguel Paludo (95.223) posting the tenth quickest lap speed.

The teams will return to the track later this evening around 5:00 pm (ET – approximate after NSCS qualifying) for their qualifying session to determine the starting lineup for Saturday afternoon’s race.

The 2nd race of the season – The Kroger 250 – is scheduled to get underway around 1:50 pm (ET) and television coverage will be provided by SPEED.
