Keith Rocco is leading the next group out onto the race track. He’s not in his familiar no. 68 car this week. Instead he’s in Todd Ceravolo’s no. 16 car.

You can read more on why he’s in that car here: http://speed51.com/rocco-to…

The dry line is about two lanes wide in the corners now, but it narrows up on the straightaway. There’s been a few times where a car has dipped his left-front tire into the damp area on the exit of turn four and gotten a little sideways. Fortunately no harm has come because of it.
1:39
We are without the aid of live timing and scoring right now. We apologize for not being able to bring you lap times.
