Ryan Blaney top Eldora final practices

EL4_9571In the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) practice session for tonight’s 1-800 Car Cash Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway, it was Ryan Blaney – with a lap speed of 87.869mph – showing the quickest way around the track.

Once again, series Rookie of the Year (ROTY) candidate, Mason Mingus, with a lap speed of 87.771mph, was second quickest, followed by Austin Dillon (87.596mph) who was third, Ron Hornaday, Jr. (87.125) fourth and Ty Dillon (87.007) was fifth.

Rounding out the top-ten quickest drivers in the “Happy Hour” (final) session were Jody Knowles (86.931mph) who was sixth, JR Heffner (86.747) seventh, ROTY candidate Chase Pistone (86.714) eighth, Kyle Larson (86.647) ninth and Ken Schrader (86.626) was tenth quickest.

The qualifying format this year will consist of the traditional two-lap qualifying session, five 10-lap qualifying races and a 15-lap last-chance qualifying race – all beginning at 5:10 p.m (ET – FOX Sports 1). And, as it was last year, instead of the regular 36-truck field, only 30 starting positions will be filled in qualifying.

The 2nd annual 1-800 Car Cash Mudsummer Classic is scheduled to get underway around 9:20 p,m. (ET) tonight, with continued television coverage provided by FOX Sports 1 beginning at 8:30 p.m. (ET).
