Cup teams get a pair of practices on Friday

Six Dodges were in the top nine in Thursday’s pre-qualifying practice, but Jimmie Johnson (Chevrolet) and Matt Kenseth (Ford) topped the list.

The cars that made the field for Saturday night’s race will have a pair of practice sessions Friday in race trim, including one starting at 6:20 p.m. that will closely approximate actual racing conditions.
