Cody Coughlin led the first of two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice sessions at Bristol Motor Speedway on Wednesday (Aug. 16), while Kyle Busch led the second.

Rookie Coughlin set the fastest time of the session with a lap of 14.828 seconds (129.404 mph) in the No. 13 Ride TV/JEGS Toyota.  Busch was runner-up in the first session with a fastest time of 14.832 seconds (129.369 mph) with Johnny Sauter third in the No. 21 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet.  Rounding out the top five were Matt Crafton at 127.869 mph and No. 19 Fitzgerald Glider Kids Ford driver Austin Cindric (127.622mph).

30 of the 34 teams entered posted times in the first session.  Jordan Anderson did briefly venture on track, but did not put up a time.  Norm Benning and Josh Reaume did not venture on-track at all.  Clay Greenfield blew an engine in his No. 68 before being able to set a lap time.  Luckily, the team does have a spare powerplant.


However, the time necessary for the change forced Greenfield to miss the second session as well.  When qualifying starts later today, Greenfield will have to qualify with little practice.
