BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Patrick Emerling is off to a good start as he gets set to make his third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour start of the season on Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway. In the only practice session for the Bush's Beans 150, Emerling posted the fastest time behind the wheel of his No. 07 Buffalo Auto Auction Chevrolet. Emerling's quick time around the 0.533-mile concrete oval was 14.534 seconds (132.021 mph). 

Burt Myers, a former NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion, posted the second fastest time of the session, but ended with a car rolling on the hauler. Myers was involved in a crash about 45 minutes into the session and the damage on his No. 1 Citrusafe Cleaners Ford was not fixable today.

Ryan Preece, the most recent series winner, posted the third fastest time of the session. Preece's fast time was 14.568 seconds (131.713 mph). Chase Dowling was fourth in the session, while Ronnie Williams, a Rookie of the Year contender, rounded out the top five.

Justin Bonsignore, Bobby Santos, Craig Lutz, Timmy Solomito and Ted Christopher rounded out the top 10.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns to the track for Coors Light Pole Qualifying at 3:15 p.m. ET. The Bush's Beans 150 is slated to take the green flag at 6:05 p.m. ET this evening.
