BROOKLYN, Mich. — Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch placed their respective Toyota Camrys at the top of the scoring pylon in second practice this morning for tomorrow’s FireKeepers Casino 400.
Edwards led the way at Michigan International Speedway with a lap of 36.406 seconds as Busch followed with a lap of 36.412 seconds.
The Joe Gibbs Racing duo took the top-two spots away from a Team Penske-affiliated triumvirate of Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney and Brad Keselowski, who swept spots three-through-five.
Finishing out the top-10 of the 55-minute session were Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Larson, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Ryan Newman.
Other notable drivers’ placings in the session were Kevin Harvick in 13th, Matt Kenseth in 14th, Tony Stewart in 16th, Chase Elliott in 18th, Kurt Busch in 19th and Kasey Kahne in 25th.
Stewart’s No. 14 Truck Centers Chevrolet spent the most time out on track with the three-time Sprint Cup champion spending 42 laps out on the two-mile superspeedway.
BK Racing’s David Ragan, who found the wall in the first round of qualifying on Friday, completed the fewest laps with a total of five circuits to his name.
Over the course of a 10-lap run, Johnson was the fastest driver on track with an average speed of 195.394 miles per hour over a run. Stewart-Haas Racing’s Harvick was next fastest over 10 laps with an average speed of 195.256 miles per hour.
