Brad Keselowski had the fastest lap in Saturday’s final Cup practice at Michigan International Speedway, posing at lap of 197.401 mph.
Jimmie Johnson was ninth in his backup car at 196.260 mph.
“We need to work a little more on it to make it more comfortable for me, but all things considered we will be OK (Sunday),” Johnson said. “Just need to pass some cars again.”
AJ Allmendinger hit the wall in the final seconds of the session. Fox Sports 2 showed the team pulling its backup car out of the hauler.
“The left rear tire blew and I crashed,” Allmendinger said.
