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.
