Rained washed out the first two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice sessions at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but NASCAR’s persistence in waiting out the rain allowed for final practice to get in as scheduled.

William Byron led the way in the one-hour session, and on a weekend where rain will play a major factor, it was an important practice session. If qualifying is rained out tomorrow, the field will be set by final practice speeds, and Byron will start on pole after setting a fast lap of 29.321 seconds.

Joining Byron at the top of the leaderboard were three GMS Racing teammates in Spencer Gallagher, Johnny Sauter, and Ben Kennedy along with Byron’s team owner Kyle Busch.

Tyler Reddick was sixth in the only practice ahead of tomorrow’s race with Daniel Suarez, Daniel Hemric, Matt Tifft and Rico Abreu rounding out the top-10.

All 36 trucks made it out on track for practice, and it was a clean session for most with only one incident for Timmy Hill cutting a tire down and making contact with the wall.

Qualifying for tomorrow nights race is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. ET on Friday.
