Kurt Busch posted the fastest speed in the Cup Series’ final practice session Friday at Kansas Speedway.
Busch recorded a speed of 177.731 mph around the 1.5-mile track as the session came to a close.
Kyle Busch, who was seventh fastest (176.713), recorded the most laps with 55.
Kevin Harvick had the best 10-lap average at 176.257 mph.
Bowman brushed the wall in Turn 2 right after he took the top spot with just under 10 minutes left in the session. He went to the garage but will not have to go to a backup car.
“(Crew chief) Greg (Ives) will get it fixed up, obviously we’re going to be racing in really different conditions,” Bowman told the Motor Racing Network. “With the whole pack being in front of me I think I had just a little more speed than I realized I had getting into the corner.”
