Kyle Larson, still seeking his first career Sprint Cup win, took a big step in that direction by being the fastest in Saturday’s final practice session for Sunday’s STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Larson, who missed this race last year due to having passed out the day before and was held for observation at an area hospital, had the best speed at 95.468 mph.

Kyle Busch was second fastest (95.338), followed by Brian Vickers (95.304), who has had a strong weekend to date.

Here’s how the Happy Hour session played out:
