Jesse Little set the pace to beat Friday morning in the final practice for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in preparation for Friday evening’s “Drive Sober 150” presented by the Delaware Office of Highway Safety at Dover International Speedway, circling the Monster Mile in 23.656 seconds for an average speed of 152.181 mph.
Little enters the season finale fifth in the series points standings, but is just four points behind third-place Brandon Jones, leaving him more than within range of jumping up to finish the season. However, Jones was right behind Little in the practice session, running second-fastest at 151.777 mph.
Ben Rhodes, who has already wrapped up the season series championship, was seventh-fastest at 151.303 mph. Rhodes is hoping to become only the second driver to win the series championship and win at Dover in the same season.
