Freaking fast: Juan Pablo Montoya Leads First Sprint Cup Practice

Juan Pablo Montoya, ever so fond of tweeting about “freaking” this and “freaking” that, laid down a freaking fast lap at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Friday afternoon, leading the first Sprint Cup practice.

Montoya’s lap of 186.168 mph beat Sam Hornish Jr.’s best lap of 186.085, and the Hendrick Motorsports cars of Jimmie Johnson, Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon rounded out the top five.

Ryan Newman, Joey Logano, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top 10.

Earnhardt Jr. led most of the practice, but some cars laid down fast qualifying practice laps toward the end to bump him down the charts.

Sprint Cup qualifying begins at 3:40 p.m. local time (6:40 p.m. EST).
