Defending race-winner James Buescher ran fastest in the first Camping World Truck Series practice session at Kansas Speedway on Friday morning. The two-hour, 50-minute practice is the first of two scheduled for Friday. Buescher ran 53 laps with a best speed of 178.873 mph. Rookie Jeb Burton, who has two poles already this year, was second-fastest, clocking in at 177.526 mph. Burton ran 38 laps.
Last week's race winner, Kyle Larson, is not running in the race. Dakoda Armstrong ran the most laps at 66, followed by Ron Hornaday Jr., who was penalized last week for a run-in with Darrell Wallace Jr. Hornaday ran 65 laps.
The No. 21 Chevrolet of Spencer Gallagher spun out with less than 20 minutes left in the practice session, bringing out the one and only caution of the session.
Final practice will take place at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, April 19. The SFP 250 will be aired on SPEED at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 20.
