Stewart Haas Racing was unable to seal the deal last weekend at Dover. But this weekend at Talladega, the organization is trending toward what could become another domination filled weekend.
SHR’s four car arsenal finished first, second, fourth, and eighth during the first and only practice session in preparation for Sunday’s 1000Bulbs.com 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.
Kevin Harvick led the sole Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice at Dega on Saturday, October 13th. Harvick turned a lap of 204.227 mph (46.889-seconds) around the 2.66-mile track to put his No. 4 on top of the speed charts.
Aric Almirola finished the session in second with a lap that was 0.062-seconds off of the leader. Joey Logano finished third while Clint Bowyer and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. rounded out the top-five on speeds.
Of the 41 cars to turn a lap during the session, David Starr was the slowest of the session driving the Obaika Racing No. 97 entry. The margin between first and 41st was 4.565-seconds.
The hour and 20-minute session were filled with a combination of both pack racing practice and single-car qualifying runs to prepare drivers for the qualifying session slated for 4:35 p.m. ET.
