MADISON, Wisc. — Mason Mitchell was the fastest car in opening practice for the Herr’s Live Life with Flavor 200 at the Madison International Speedway, claiming the top spot on the scoring pylon with his lap of

Mitchell would not only race the race track but the elements as well as rain would come in and take the race track away from a race-able condition with 39 of 45 scheduled minutes completed in Madison.

The current points leader held off Brennan Poole, Grant Enfinger, Austin Wayne Self, and Kyle Benjamin to place his No. 98 TTS-Musselman’s-Wildlife Foundation FL Ford at the top of the scoring monitor. Ben Rhodes, Matt Tifft, Frank Kimmel, Justin Boston, and Anderson Bowen would round out the top-10.

ARCA would utilize a group concept for practice with a group of eight-to-ten drivers taking eight-to-twelve laps around the half-mile asphalt oval before lining up on pit road to retreat to the garage area and allowing another group to take to the track.

The sanctioning body would call out a tow truck just once to assist a vehicle. Kimmel’s No. 44 Ansell-Menards Toyota would require a push to start back up while on pit road waiting to get the signal to head to the garage. Kimmel would return to the track later in the session and would continue to log laps without any visible problems.

Rain is still coming down in Madison and the active schedule for the rest of the day is currently unknown. Final practice was set to start at 2:15 p.m CST and was scheduled to run until 3:00 p.m. Qualifying for the Herr’s Live Life with Flavor 200 is scheduled for 4:30 p.m later this afternoon – weather pending.
