BRISTOL, Tenn. – Joey Logano paced the final Cup practice Saturday for the Food City 500.

The Team Penske driver turned a 128.830 mph lap (14.894 seconds) on the 0.533-mile oval.

Jimmie Johnson was second, followed by Austin Dillon, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch.

Logano has two victories at Bristol, most recently on Aug. 22, 2015.

Chase Elliott, who will start from the pole position Sunday, was 16th fastest after brushing the wall in practice.

Erik Jones, who told NBCSports.com this week he is working on a contract extension with Joe Gibbs Racing, was fastest in the first practice Saturday morning. He was 11th in final practice.

Ryan Preece suffered enough damage from a blown tire during the session that he’ll go to a backup car for tomorrow’s race.
