David Reutimann would like nothing more than to prove his rain-shortened Coca-Cola 600 victory in 2009 wasn't a fluke.
The Michael Waltrip Racing driver appears to have a machine capable of helping him accomplish just that, as he led final practice for the Coke 600 on Saturday afternoon with a speed of 184.483 mph.
Marcos Ambrose was second-fastest (184.143 mph), followed by the hobbled Paul Menard – who is on crutches after cutting the bottom of his foot on a boat dock – Kyle Busch and Jeff Burton.
Denny Hamlin, Greg Biffle, Martin Truex Jr., Kurt Busch and David Ragan rounded out the top 10 in Happy Hour, which was the final chance for Sprint Cup Series teams to find areas to improve on their cars before Sunday's marathon race.
Other notable drivers included Dale Earnhardt Jr. (12th), Carl Edwards (13th), Tony Stewart (17th) and Jeff Gordon (31st). Pole-sitter Brad Keselowski was 22nd.
