After practicing Wednesday and Thursday, this is the last time the drivers will be able to test their cars on the track before pole position is determined. Fast Friday is open to the public, with children 12 and under getting in for free. Everyone else will be asked to pay a $10 admission fee.

Practice goes from noon-6 p.m. today, which is followed by qualification draw. The qualification draw will determine the starting grid for Saturday's "Pole Day" of qualifying.
