The opening practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Talladega Superspeedway could be described with one word: Uneventful.
Jamie McMurray‘s 47.943-second lap topped the opening practice for Sunday’s Geico 500. The lap, set during an early pack run, held throughout the session as most teams focused on single-car runs.
The session was tame as far as superspeedway practices go. The field avoided any of the potentials wrecks that could’ve sabotaged a primary car.
The Cup Series will return at 4:30 p.m. ET for final practice.
