The No. 19 car had a massive lead on the speed chart on Tuesday, which leads you to believe the fast lap included a blown chicane. Regardless, if a car blew a turn, the lap time was counted in this session.

Aside from the No. 19 car, which was piloted by Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin on Tuesday, every car that took a lap was within 2.269-seconds of each other.

For comparison’s sake, here were the speeds from Monday’s first day of Next gen testing at the Charlotte Roval:
