Jimmie Johnson – Will be starting in the rear of the field after having issues with his qualifying tires. He’ll still be scored from his 17th place starting position.
Denny Hamlin – Wasn’t happy with his car this session.
Aric Almirola – 30 minutes into practice he said, “My landing is still not great.” He was 3rd on the speed chart at the time. Late in practice while he was 3rd he said, “It’s really snappy off the straightaway, more snappy than it’s been.” Had the 3rd best 20 lap average.
Kasey Kahne – Early in practice he said the longer he ran he got pretty free. 15 minutes into practice he said, “My right rear still slides up the track.” With 10 minutes remaining he said he felt better overall but his car wasn’t quite where it needed to be center off. He was 5th on the speed chart at the time.
Kevin Harvick – Practiced in his backup car. This is the first time since he’s been at Stewart-Haas Racing that he’s been in a backup car.
