Second fastest on the day was Matthew Cowley, the points leader, who ran a time of 1:48.044 in the afternoon session. His quick time came on his 12th of 18 flying laps around the 19-turn track.

As for David Osborne and Jonathan Kotyk, neither Team Pelfrey driver completed a lap on Friday as they were both at Mid-Ohio for functions relating to the Team USA Scholarship. Both drivers were named as candidates for the famous scholarship, and will arrive at Pittsburgh for qualifying on Saturday morning.

Third quick on the practice time sheets was Yuven Sundaramoorthy, in the No. 13 K-Hill Mygale/Honda.

Masters Class competitor Mike Scanlan ran the quickest Masters Class lap of the day in both sessions, with a best time of 1:49.026. Scanlan, of note, also ran more laps than anyone in the afternoon session with 22 laps logged.

A solid afternoon outing sent Chuck Horn up the time sheetsas well, as the Masters Class driver was fifth quick.
