Keselowski tops Saturday morning Cup practice at Martinsville
Brad Keselowski posted the fastest single-lap run (94.406mph, 20.058-seconds) in second practice at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday.
Ryan Newman, Martin Truex Jr., Joey Logano and AJ Allmendinger rounded out the top-five speeds. Kyle Larson, Jimmie Johnson, Erik Jones, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Clint Bowyer rounded out the top 10 after the first 15 minutes.
The only change 30 minutes into practice was Kyle Busch moving up to eighth-quick (93.599mph). Larson’s 51 laps led were the most completed at that point.
Daniel Suarez completed the most laps — 75. However, the rookie never found the speed he was looking for in his back up after wrecking his primary vehicle on Friday during first practice for Sunday’s Goody’s 500.
Ryan Blaney posted the Best 10 Consecutive Lap Average of 92.533mph during the 55-minute session followed by Kyle Busch (92.222mph), Joey Logano (2.074mph), Keselowski (91.931mph) and Bowyer (91.758mph). Trevor Bayne, Earnhardt, Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray completed the top 10 in the category.
