NASCAR at Texas Motor Speedway: Kasey Kahne Leads Final Practice

Kasey Kahne led the final Sprint Cup Series practice on Friday afternoon at Texas Motor Speedway, topping the charts with a fast lap of 183.899 mph.

Kahne bested Paul Menard (183.892) in a 90-minute practice session that saw many drivers work only on race trim and not the upcoming qualifying session later this evening.

The fastest drivers in the session, though, did work on qualifying: Carl Edwards was third-fastest, followed by Kurt Busch and Regan Smith.

Roush Fenway Racing's David Ragan – who led Thursday's practice session – was sixth, ahead of Denny Hamlin, Marcos Ambrose, Mark Martin and AJ Allmendinger.

There were no incidents during the practice session, which wasn't televised due to Speed's coverage of the Barrett Jackson auction.

Sprint Cup Series qualifying is scheduled to begin at 6:40 p.m. Eastern time (5:40 p.m. local time). Qualifying order will mostly be based on Thursday's practice session, which saw the fastest speeds.
