Daytona winner Austin Theriault had the second fastest lap of the afternoon while Venturini Motorsports driver Christian Eckes was third. Leading the charge for Cunningham Motorsports was Shane Lee, driver of the No. 22 Big Tine Ford Fusion, turning a lap that put him fourth on the practice charts, while teammate Dalton Sargeant was eighth.. Bret Holmes rounded out the top-five.

While Eckes was quickest of the Venturini Motorsports car, his two teammates joined him in the top-10. Raphael Lessard, who is making his ARCA Racing Series debut tonight was seventh in practice while Zane Smith placed his No. 55 Toyota in the ninth position.

Vinnie Miller, representing MDM Racing, placed his No. 8 Toyota in the sixth place. Chad Finley in the No. 51 Auto Value Chevrolet rounded out the Top-10.
