RACE DAY: K&N Pro Series Battling The Weather At Richmond

Rolling our way through the raindrops here at Richmond International Raceway already today, where the first practice session for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Blue Ox 100 went through nearly 40 minutes before rain intervened.

No surprise to anyone, really, is the fact that Brett Moffitt is fastest in practice today – with another hour-long session tentatively scheduled from 1:30-2:30 p.m. What is surprising is just how dominant Moffitt has been.

He's a full two-tenths of a second faster than any other car here at Richmond in practice, and Moffitt would have two race wins in two tries in the No. 00 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota if not for a wrecked lapped car ending his day early (while leading) at South Boston.

 

Travis Pastrana was 15th-fastest in the first session.

Weather, weather, weather will remain the story here for most of the day at Richmond – though it should optimisticly be pointed out that weather is supposed to clear here by late afternoon. Which is a good thing.

Qualifying is slated for 4:30 p.m. with the Blue Ox 100 rolling off the grid at 7 p.m.
