Trucks - Iowa - Friday Practice

Truck Series regulars like Cole Whitt, Austin Dillon and Nelson Piquet Jr. look to capitalise on the absence of any competition from Cup and Nationwide drivers this weekend.
Rookie Cole Whitt set the fastest time of Friday's two qualifying sessions ahead of Saturday night's Coca-Cola 200 presented by Hy-Vee Camping World Truck Series race at the 0.875 mile tri-oval Iowa Speedway.

Whitt set his time of 23.344s in the later session, while David Mayhew's time of 23.379s set in the earlier session was the second fastest of the day in only his third Truck event of the year. Truck Series rookie and former F1 driver Nelson Piquet Jr. recorded the third fastest time in first practice but was only 14th fastest in the later session.

The field is unusually devoid of Cup and nationwide drivers this week, as those drivers are all engaged in competition at New Hampshire Speedway in Loudon on the East Coast on Saturday and Sunday.

Qualifying for the race is at 2.35pm ET, and the race itself starts at 8pm on Saturday evening.
