Grant Enfinger, Daytona International Speedway road course winner Ben Rhodes and Todd Gilliland completed the top five.

The session was slowed four times due to incidents involving Tate Fogleman, Sam LeComte, Roger Reuse and Brad Gross. The incidents lead to NASCAR adding an additional five minutes of practice, as only a fraction of the field had been able to complete a lap at speed before the yellows.
