The Coca-Cola 600 is a race that runs from evening into night. Practicing in the middle of the day is not necessarily beneficial to teams and several of them realized that fact, running a handful of laps and then parking their cars. One of those teams was the No. 2 Penske Dodge of Brad Keselowski. They turned five laps with the second one taking 29.397 seconds for a speed of 183.692 mph. Runner-up to Keselowski was Carl Edwards who turned 22 laps but was quickest on his third with a time of 29.452 seconds at a speed of 183.349 mph. Third and fourth fastest in the session was a tie between Mark Martin and Jimmie Johnson who both turned a lap of 29.471 seconds which is equal to a speed of 183.231 mph. Rounding out the top five in the final practice was Joey Logano with a time of 29.521 seconds which translates to a speed of 182.291 mph.
The Coca-Cola 600 goes green on Sunday evening at 6:19 pm Eastern time.
