There were a lot of fast cars on the track this weekend as the Camping World Truck Series, Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series all compete this weekend at Chicagoland.
After a set of practices on Friday, Austin Dillon and Kyle Larson split the honors at the top of the board. Larson, a Rookie in the series this year, topped the leaderboard in first practice with a speed of 177.055mph. Larson is currently sits 9th in series points and will be taking over the No.42 Earnhardt Ganassi Racing Chevrolet in the Sprint Cup Series in 2014.
Topping the leaderboard after the checkered flag waved for second practice was Austin Dillon. The cool evening track and air temperatures allowed him to run a lap much quicker than Larson’s at 179.748pmh. Dillon is also scheduled to make the move up to the Cup Series, driving for his grandfather Richard Childress.
A number of Sprint Cup Series regulars will be in the field this Saturday: Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Joey Logano, Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick.
Also, there could possibly be two women in the field this weekend at Johanna Long and Maryeve Dufault attempt to qualify for the field. Long, driving for ML Motorsports, is a regular in the series while Dufault is just starting to come through the ranks in stock cars.
Coors Light Pole Qualifying is scheduled Saturday at 12:05 p.m. ET., with the series’ 26th of 33 races this season set for a 3:30 p.m. ET start.
