Kevin Harvick Leads Final Richmond Practice

RICHMOND, VA — The metaphorical cream rose to the top during final practice for the Federated Auto Parts 400 as defending Sprint Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick paced the field in the final on-track session prior to pole qualifying at Richmond International Raceway.

Harvick posted a 125.348 mph lap to lead the way and was joined in the top-5 by Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne and Kurt Busch. Like Kyle Larson, who topped the field in the first session, Kahne is in must-win mode this weekend as going to Victory Lane is the only way that he would qualify for the Chase for the Championship.

Larson was 17th in the second session on Friday.
