Conor Daly in the No.18 Jonathan Byrd’s Hospitality and Restaurant Group Honda brought out the red flag this morning after hitting the barriers at turn six.
The resulting impact cracked the gearbox in the No.18 Honda and Daly, whose dad Derek is Irish said that the luck of the Irish wasn’t with him this morning but that he hopes his luck changes this weekend.

Daly’s team mate RC Enerson ended the morning session in 17th place with a fastest time of 01:25.9777s.
