Xpress Motorsports Brian Scott swept both practices at Kansas Speedway on Friday, in preparation for Saturday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series's O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 race.

He would pace the first practice session with a lap speed of 165.047 mph and then the final practice with a 165.664 mph.

Only 28 trucks ran the first practice and 35 trucks ran the final practice.

In the first practice session, Ron Hornaday Jr. was second fastest with a lap speed of 165.042 mph and followed by Matt Crafton with a 164.704 mph.

Then Todd Bodine and Chad McCumbee would round out the top five.

Positions six through 10 were; Mike Skinner, Timothy Peters, David Starr, T.J. Bell and Colin Braun.

In the final practice session, Ricky Carmichael was second fastest with a lap speed of 165.375 mph and followed by Mike Skinner at 164.820 mph.

Then Johnny Sauter and Colin Braun round out the top five.

Positions six through 10 were; Rick Crawford, Chad McCumbee, Todd Bodine, T.J. Bell and Ron Hornaday Jr..

Other notables, James Buescher ran both practice sessions in 16th position, Brian Ickler ran in both practice sessions in the 20th position and Gabi DiCarlo ran in both practice sessions in the 23rd position.

The defending champion Johnny Benson Jr. ran 17th in the first practice and 21st in the final practice.

Qualifying for the O'Reilly Auto Parts 250, starts at 1:45PM Eastern time, and won't be televised due to Sprint Cup qualifying at Talladega airs at the same time.

You can log onto the Then click on the red lettered Live Qualifying in the upper left hand side of the page and under O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 yellow banner.

Now while your watching Cup qualifying, you'll be able to also follow Truck qualifying.

To update the entry list, their's only 36 trucks now as mike Harmon and Lafferty Motorsports have withdrawn from the race.

There also was a driver change, as TRG Motorsports has put Frank Deiny Jr. in the No. 7 replacing J.R. Fitzpatrick and that's depressing news.

It would be cool to see B/R's Brian Scott get his first career win in trucks at Kansas and call me crazy.

But at 5:30PM on Saturday I'll be switching my TV to Speed for the Truck race and regardless how good the Nationwide race is.
