Theriault Gets In Final Cup Practice [VIDEO]
Maine's Austin Theriault got in his final two practice sessions at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday. The only thing left now is to drop the green flag and go racing and they will do that Sunday at 3pm.
The Fort Kent racer is making his NASCAR Cup Series debut in the #52 Bangor Savings Bank car with the Rick Ware Racing Team from North Carolina.
The team is struggling to find some speed. In Saturday's first practice, the best speed was 126.589mph and the second practice was even slower at 124.075mph.
Theriault will begin the race in the #36 position so he'll need to find some speed or risk going down a lap early in the race.
He will become the first Maine driver to race in the Cup Series since Ricky Craven stopped racing in 2004.
Theriault has been getting a lot of press from around New England as he makes his debut. Check out the NESN interview...
