Hemric turned the fastest lap in Final Practice. Hemric turned a 40.262-second lap around the Auto Club Speedway. Logano finished the second in the session after leading almost half of the session.

The session was slowed early by a spin by Brandon Jones. He would rebound from the spin to finish 15th on the charts.
