Leading the weekend’s first on-track activities, Lessard laid down the fastest lap of first practice in his Kyle Busch Motorsports-prepared No. 46 Toyota. The Canadian, who is prepped to make just his second career NGOTS start, slotted in at 155 mph.
Coming off suspension, Austin Wayne Self placed 19th out of 31 trucks. Norm Benning was the only driver entered who elected not to practice, while teammates Daniel Sasnett and Ryan Sieg failed to complete a lap, after only shaking down their trucks.
Practice was slowed after Spencer Boyd slammed the wall after suffering an apparent mechanical failure. Boyd’s Young’s Motorsports team will go to a backup truck for the remainder of the race weekend.
