Eggleston Paces Lone Truck Series Practice Session at Texas

By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor

FORT WORTH, Texas – In preparation for Friday night’s running of the PPG 400 at Texas Motor Speedway, the drivers of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series took to the 1.5-mile track for practice on Thursday to get their trucks dialed in before race day.

The majority of the first 55-minute session was led by Stewart Friesen before a flurry of activity in the final minutes saw DGR-CROSLEY driver Chris Eggleston lay down the fastest lap at 29.853 seconds, 180.886 mph. Kyle Busch Motorsports shoe Noah Gragson came in second in the session, 0.056 seconds back.

Following Eggleston and Gragson was Johnny Sauter, Friesen, Grant Enfinger, Brett Moffitt, Todd Gilliland, Cody Coughlin, Myatt Snider, and Ben Rhodes rounding out the top-10. Sauter put down the fastest 10-lap average among the drivers that participated in practice.

Though the Truck Series was scheduled for a second and final practice session, heavy rains inundated the area, forcing the cancellation of that practice as a result.

On Friday, the Trucks will set the field for the 167-lap race with qualifying at 5:45 pm Eastern, followed by the green flag at 9:00 pm.
