Toyota has swept the practices at Bristol Motor Speedway.
With a lap time of 14.925 seconds (128.563 mph) he topped teammate Daniel Suarez by 0.035 to be happiest in happy hour.
Like the first two sessions this weekend, somebody ran into problems. This time, it was Chris Buescher, who popped his left-rear corner panel into the Turn 4 wall in the opening moments. The No. 37 JTG Daugherty Racing team will go to a back-up machine for Sunday’s Food City 500.
Another issue this session was rain, as it hit for the first time about halfway through the 55-minute run. Fortunately for the teams, it lasted only a few minutes and they were back on track.
Kyle Larson and others continued to work in the outside lane, showing marked improvement, literally, by laying rubber down on that patch of pavement.
Back to Landon Cassill’s 15.023 time, the top 13 drivers were only 0.098 apart.
