Grad Prairie, Alberta native Jamie Krzysik was atop the leaderboard for most of the practice and eventually finished fith overall during the practice session. EIR is his home track where he races modifieds as well and he's hoping to improve on his top Pinty's Series finish to date of fourth at the track.

Veteran Mark Dilley finished sixth with Anthony Simone seventh. L.P. Dumoulin stalled early in the session and had to be pushed back to the pits to work in his car and it helped as finished eighth overall.

Noel Dowler, who has former NASCAR Camaping World Truck Series competitor Rick Crawford helping him out for the race, was ninth and defending series champion Cayden Lapcevich completed the top 10.
