Turner-Scott Motorsports driver Jeb Burton would lead the only practice for the Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a lap of 32.267 seconds. The driver of the No. 4 Arrowhead Chevrolet is looking for his second win of the season after winning at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year.

Richard Childress Racing driver Ty Dillon was second quickest in his No. 3 Bass Pro Shops / Tracker Boats Chevrolet as he looks to move to the NASCAR Natiownwide Series in 2014.

Burton’s Turner teammate and 2012 series champion James Buescher was third quickest behind the wheel of his No. 31 Rheem Chevrolet, followed by teammate Ron Hornaday. Hornaday is piloting the No. 34 Smokey Mountain Herbal Snuff Chevrolet for Turner-Scott Motorsports after he was released from NTS Motorsports following last weekend’s race.

Brad Keselowski Racing teammates Ryan Blaney and Ross Chastain were fifth and sixth quickest.

Max Gresham was seventh followed by Nelson Piquet Jr., German Quiroga and Matt Crafton. All Crafton has to do tonight to win the NCWTS title is start the race. Once he takes the green flag, he will have officially clinched the championship.

The Owner’s championship is still up for grabs though as the No. 88 ThorSport Racing truck leads the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports truck by 29 points. Kyle Busch, driving the No. 51 ToyotaCare Toyota Tundra, was 22nd quickest.
