Moving from ninth in the opening practice, Busch finishes first in the final
BROOKLYN, Mich. – Kyle Busch was fastest, Darrell Wallace proved consistent and Joey Coulter will be going to a backup.
The day’s final practice for NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series ended with only one incident – Coulter broke loose and put the back of his No. 18 Toyota into the wall early in the 1 hr., 20-min. session.
Coulter’s Kyle Busch Motorsports team was quick to roll a backup entry off the truck, however Coulter was unable to shake down the new piece before practice ended.
Busch, ninth in the opening practice, churned out a fast lap of 187.578 mph to pace the closing session.
Wallace (186.945 mph), who led the morning session, was No. 2 in the afternoon run, while Johnny Sauter, Brendan Gaughan and Coulter (pre-accident) completed the top five.
Defending series champion James Buescher was ninth while points leader Matt Crafton was 17th.
Qualifying for the Michigan National Guard 200 is scheduled for Saturday, beginning at 9:25 a.m., with the race slated for a 12:30 p.m.green flag.
