Colton Herta was quickest in the practice session for the first Iowa 250. Herta’s best lap of 171.990 mph beat Conor Daly, who held the top spot for most of the final 30 minutes. Daly’s time of 171.488 was the first of the day above 171 mph. Five drivers topped the 171 mark.
The top 5:
One interesting note- Daly, driving for Carlin this weekend, is pitted next to his other car, the 20 of Ed Carpenter.
I am all set up in the Grinnell annex of the Iowa media center. I will be heading to the track for qualifying and the race in a few minutes. I will try to post a quick qualifying summary. Look for my race summary tomorrow morning.
