Johnson paces final Shootout practice; Menard, Speed tangle  Hendrick Motorsports' Jimmie Johnson paced Friday night's final practice in preparation for Saturday night's Budweiser Shootout at Daytona International Speedway.  Johnson, who ran a fast lap of 192.620 mph, led Richard Petty Motorsports' AJ Allmendinger at 192.542 and Hendrick‚Äôs Dale Earnhardt Jr. at 192.304.

The session was stopped for several minutes when Red Bull Racing's Scott Speed and Yates Racing's Paul Menard got together after Menard lost control of his Ford. Speed won't have to go to a backup for the race and Menard's crew hopes to fix his car and avoid going to a backup.

Rounding out the top five in speed were Richard Petty Motorsports' Kasey Kahne and Stewart-Haas Racing's Tony Stewart.

Sixth through 10th in speed were JGR's Denny Hamlin, Roush Fenway Racing's Greg Biffle, Hall of Fame Racing's Bobby Labonte, Roush Fenway's Jamie McMurray and Busch.

TV Coverage of the 75-lap exhibition race begins at 8 p.m. EST Saturday.
