Quick quartet

The six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion finished the final Daytona 500 practice second fastest.

Late in Saturday’s second practice, Jimmie Johnson made a rare appearance in the draft at Daytona, hooking up with teammates Kasey Kahne, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. to post a lap at 199.313 mph.

Before that abbreviated drafting session, Johnson had confined his practice time to single-car runs, as has been his custom in the past.

The six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion finished the final Daytona 500 practice second fastest behind the No. 95 Ford of Michael McDowell. Kahne, Gordon and Earnhardt were fourth, fifth and sixth-quickest, respectively.
