Robert Stout turned the quickest lap of the day at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course across two practice sessions in the Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires. John Dean II was quickest in the ND1 class for last year’s car model.
In the one-make series’ first track session Luke Oxner topped the timing charts in his No. 77 White Racing entry. Oxner recorded a 1:37.5721 in the 35-minute session.
In the afternoon, Stout shaved four-tenths off of Oxner’s best. The driver of the No. 28 McCumbee McAleer Racing car turned a 1:37.1885 right as the checkered flag came out.
In the ND1 class, Dean’s (No. 16 Sick Sideways Racing) afternoon time of 1:37.8660 was the quickest of the day.
