Johnson Fastest in Saturday's Early Loudon Practice Session, RCR Cars Fast

Jimmie Johnson led the way with a lap speed of 130.198 in Saturday's early practice session at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Jeff Burton, with a lap speed of 130.180 mph, was second fastest, followed by Kevin Harvick (130.149), Greg Biffle (130.109) and Jeff Gordon (130.006).

Rounding out the top-ten fastest during practice were Clint Bowyer (129.975) who was sixth fastest, Kyle Busch (129.962), Regan Smith (129.958), Ryan Newman (129.918) and AJ Allmendinger (129.905).

Just by looking at the speeds of Burton with Harvick and Bowyer close behind, it looks like the RCR cars have something special to compete with the Stewart-Haas tandem this week. Tony Stewart was 11th fastest, but four-time NHMS winner Burton led the way with the fastest 10-consecutive lap average.

The drivers have one more practice session scheduled on the day.
