Jeff Gordon fastest in final Sprint Unlimited practice session (14 drivers)

Jeff Gordon was fastest during the final Sprint Unlimited practice session Friday night at Daytona in preparation for Saturday's 75-lap non-points event. Gordon – with a lap speed of 196.764 mph – will be looking for his first victory in this event since 1997 when it was called the Busch Clash.

Only 14 of the 25 drivers participated in the session because they had gotten most of what they wanted to see in the earlier practice where Kurt Busch was fastest.

Denny Hamlin, with a lap speed of 196.524 mph, was second quickest and was followed by Kyle Busch (196.202 mph), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (196.168) and Aric Almirola (196.113).

Rounding out the top-ten quickest drivers in the “Happy Hour” (final) practice were Tony Stewart (195.865 MPH) who was sixth, Kyle Larson (194.700), Kevin Harvick (192.526), Brad Keselowski (192.197) and Jimmie Johnson (192.193).

These practices don't mean too much to the overall betting equation. It was a crap shoot before the sessions and it still is afterwards.
