Kyle Larson Tops Final Coca Cola 600 Practice

Kyle Larson

Kyle Larson will have his work cut out for him when he starts Sunday's Coca Cola 600 in the rear of the field after his car failed to get through technical inspection in Thursday's qualifying session, but he knows his car will be up to the task after he topped the Saturday's final practice session for Sunday's 400 lap race.

Larson paced the session with a lap of 28.970 seconds (186.400 mph) in the no. 42 Chevrolet, besting Ryan Blaney (185.861), Matt Kenseth (185.046), Kurt Busch (184.856) and Erik Jones (184.818).
