Cole Custer, Justin Allgaier lead Xfinity Practices at Auto Club

Cole Custer and Justin Allgaier led the two practice sessions for the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Auto Club Speedway.

Custer led the first session at Auto Club with a time of 40.669, just over 177 mph. Christopher Bell was second and Kyle Busch, seeking his 200th win in NASCAR, was third quickest at 40.828.


Tyler Reddick was fourth fastest, however, did find some trouble at the beginning when his Hurdl Chevrolet slapped the fence in Turns 3 and 4.

Justin Allgaier, Noah Gragson, Jeremy Clements, John Hunter Nemecheck and Austin Cindric rounded out the top 10.

In the second practice, Allgaier showed his speed in his Jr. Motorsports Chevy as he ran a lap of 40.436 seconds, a little over of 178 mph. Reddick, Busch and Gragson round out the top 5 in the second of two practices for the XFinity drivers.

There were two incidents in this session involving one of the drivers that was involved in the first practice. Ray Black Jr spun off of Turn 2 but he did not hit anything and was able to resume practice before the session ended.

The second incident involved the 2 of Tyler Reddick as the Corning, California native spun his Hurdl Chevrolet out but unlike last time, he walked away with little to no damage.


Xfinity Series teams will qualify tomorrow at 1:10 PM ET with the green flag waving just a little over 5:00 PM ET. Both events will be on Fox Sports 1.
