The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams were up early Saturday morning at Bristol Motor Speedway, as the drivers took to the track for their second Food City 500 practice session. And, at the end of the session, it was Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) taking the top-three positions, with pole-sitter Kyle Busch – lap speed of 125.831 mph – posting the fastest lap.

Busch’s fellow JGR teammates, Matt Kenseth (125.749 mph) and Denny Hamlin (125.658 mph) were second and third fastest respectively, and they were followed by Jeff Burton (125.601) who was fourth fastest and Kasey Kahne (125.584) fifth fastest.

Rounding out the top-ten fastest during the practice session were Kevin Harvick (125.510 mph) who was sixth fastest, Jeff Gordon (125.461) seventh, Jamie McMurray (125.445) eighth, Kurt Busch (125.371) ninth and Jimmie Johnson (125.281) posting the tenth fastest lap speed.

The teams will return this afternoon (from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET – on SPEED) for their “Happy Hour” (final) practice session, and then all that will be left to do is return Sunday to race.

The Food City 500 is set to get started around 1:20 pm (ET) on Sunday, and FOX will provide live flag-to-flag television coverage of the event.
