Ryan Preece loved his time in the Super Modified. He said with a smile, “If I could have my tour car or my SK handle like that we’d have a lot more fun.”

Practice was cut short after Sanborn left a trail of power steering fluid on the backstretch.

Kyle Casagrande has made contact with the wall in turn four to bring out the caution in Late Model practice. He is out of the car as the safety crew tends to his car.

Not all of the Sunoco Modifieds had their transponders on that last practice session, so it is difficult to give an exact car count at this point.
