Cars hit track for lone, two-hour practice session

FULL SERIES COVERAGE

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. -- Drizzly, damp conditions delayed Friday's NASCAR Nationwide Series practice at Road America.

The aim is to get on track for 2:15 p.m. ET and have one two-hour practice session on Friday that will run until 4:15 p.m. ET.
 
The start of practice was delayed as heavy, early morning rain gave way to mostly cloudy conditions Friday at the 4.048-mile track in preparation for Saturday's Gardner Denver 200 (2:45 p.m. ET, ABC), the series' first road-course race of the season.
 
While teams have Goodyear rain tires on hand, series officials indicated that the Nationwide Series would be unlikely to practice in damp conditions if the race was to be held on a dry track. The cars would not practice if there was standing water.
 
The schedule called for a 90-minute first practice from 12:30-2 p.m. ET and final practice from 2:30-3:55 p.m. ET. Coors Light Pole Qualifying is scheduled for 11:40 a.m. ET Saturday.
