KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Kyle Larson led the field in final practice for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway, running a lap of 28.377 seconds to place the No. 42 Target Chevrolet at the top of the speed chart ahead of tomorrow’s race.

Larson led a Chevrolet charge at the top of the session’s standings, leading Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne, and Ryan Newman in the top-four of the standings. Larson’s best lap would best Harvick’s best lap by 103-thousandths of a second.

Rounding out the top-10 in the standings would be Kyle Busch, Clint Bowyer, A.J. Allmendinger, Jeff Gordon, Joey Logano, and Martin Truex Jr.

Two incidents would occur in the 50-minute session. Kurt Busch would go for a spin off of Turn 4 and would trap his car in the soggy infield grass while Alex Bowman would bring out a brief caution period for scraping the wall.

Up next for the Sprint Cup Series will be the 267-lap Hollywood Casino 400 that is set to kick off tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 p.m CST (2:00 p.m EST.) ESPN will carry live television coverage of all of the action from Kansas.
