Jeff Gordon topped the speed chart of the final Sprint Cup practice Saturday afternoon at Michigan International Speedway.

While several drivers have surpassed 200 mph in the previous two practices and qualifying, Gordon had a field-best speed of 198.604 mph.

Kyle Busch was second-fastest at 198.571 mph, followed by Martin Truex Jr. (also 198.571), Kyle Larson (198.495), Kevin Harvick (198.358), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (198.331), Jimmie Johnson (198.232), Carl Edwards (198.009), Brad Keselowski (197.976) and Denny Hamlin (197.846).

Speaking of Hamlin, he was involved in the lone mishap of the session. Hamlin spun and suffered minor damage to the front splitter and front end of his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camry.

The team initially was going to go to a backup car, but decided to try and repair the damage, instead.
