JOLIET, Ill. — Carl Edwards will enter Sunday’s MyAFibStory.com 400 on a high note after running the fastest lap in final practice with a lap of 28.968 seconds at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday afternoon.

Edwards in his No. 99 Fastenal Ford has had strong pace all weekend long and should have a strong start from starting position number two tomorrow if his Saturday pace holds up.

Below Edwards on the scoring pylon would be fellow Ford driver Brad Keselowski. Kyle Larson, Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick, Kasey Kahne, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, and Paul Menard rounded out the top-10 on the speed chart.

Chase drivers outside of the top-10 would be Jeff Gordon in 12th, Kevin Harvick in 13th, Kyle Busch in 15th, Greg Biffle in 17th, Joey Logano in 18th, Aric Almirola in 20th, Denny Hamlin in 21st, Ryan Newman in 22nd, A.J. Allmendinger in 24th, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 26th.

Teams would test out their long-run setups as many teams in the garage logged a hefty amount of laps with Kurt Busch running the most with 48 circuits of the mile-and-a-half track completed.

The 50-minute session would run clean throughout its entirety.
