Sheldon Creed Fastest in Xfinity Practice at Nashville

Sheldon Creed was one of the fastest cars at Portland International Raceway three weeks ago, and he continues his run of speed with the fastest time in Friday’s (June 24) NASCAR Xfinity Series practice session at Nashville Superspeedway.

Creed topped the charts with a speed of 155.824 mph.

Points leader AJ Allmendinger had the fastest 10-lap average and the second-fastest overall time.

Noah Gragson and defending champion Daniel Hemric were third and fourth quickest, respectively, in the session.

The biggest surprise in the practice session was JJ Yeley; he had the fifth-fastest time in a car for MBM Motorsports. Equally surprising was Kyle Weatherman, who was sixth-fastest for Jesse Iwuji Motorsports.
