Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
CLERMONT, Ind. – The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoffs begins tonight, and the series returns to Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park for the first time since 2011.
With a speed of 109.575 mph, Grant Enfinger topped the charts in the series’ first practice session at IRP in 11 years.
Enfinger turned his hot lap in the closing minutes of the session, and he beat an onslaught of Toyotas behind him. John Hunter Nemechek had the second-fastest speed in the session, while KBM teammate Chandler Smith, a two-time ARCA winner at IRP, was third.
Regular season champion and playoff No. 1 seed Zane Smith logged the 14th-quickest time.
The TSport 200 will take place on Friday, July 29 at 9 p.m. ET, with TV coverage provided by FOX Sports 1.
