Logano, who is looking to win his first XFINITY race at the Glen, turned a lap of 122.452 mph. Keselowski, the 2013 winner of this race, ran 122.286 mph.
Daniel Suarez, making his first XFINITY road course start, got into trouble early on in the session. He pounded the wall in the inner loop less than ten minutes into practice, forcing him to a backup for the race.
John Wes Townley also spun, but didn’t hit anything and continued on. He finished practice in twenty-seventh, with a lap of 116.577 mph.
The practice was the first of two at Watkins Glen for the NXS drivers on Friday. The second will run from 3:30 to 4:25.
