Phoenix NASCAR Practice Speeds, Lap Averages, and Notes

Joey Logano - NASCAR DFS Picks, Betting Picks, Daily Fantasy NASCAR

The NASCAR Cup Series ran an extended practice session at Phoenix Raceway on Friday afternoon in preparation for the upcoming Shriners Children's 500 on Sunday afternoon.

The Cup Series decided to make this an extended practice session (50 minutes) because this weekend is the debut of the new short track package, which includes a bigger spoiler.

The 36-car field was split into two groups for this practice session. Below you'll find the two practice groups, key notes from the practice session and the practice speeds for all drivers.


Important Practice Notes

New Package Debut - NASCAR is debuting its new short track package this weekend with changes from last year's that were supposed to encourage more on-track action and passing. Unfortunately, it looks like they missed the mark. After the extended practice session on Friday, many drivers remarked that they noticed no changes from last year's package, with several saying that this new one is actually worse in traffic.

Tyler Reddick - Tyler Reddick had the third-fastest car in practice, and, thankfully, he didn't do any damage to it when he spun out late in the session. He did note that he hit the wall a few times during practice (again, no major damage) and that he feels like the No. 45 team has some work to do on this Toyota before the race on Sunday.

Daniel Hemric - About 30 minutes into practice, Daniel Hemric spun out his No. 31 Chevrolet and backed it up into the wall. The Kaulig Racing team had to make repairs to the car and Hemric was able to get back on track late in the session, although he was never able to find much speed in that race car.
