Ryan Blaney (186.104 mph), Joey Logano (186.047 mph) and Denny Hamlin (185.938 mph) rounded out the top five in practice. Saturday’s earlier practice was canceled because of rain, so this served as the only post-qualifying tune-up for Sunday’s race (6 p.m., FOX, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

Kyle Busch, who was 18th-fastest in Saturday’s practice, will start on the pole for the Coca-Cola 600.

Several cars served practice holds including: the No. 10 of Aric Almirola, the No. 95 of Kasey Kahne and the No. 96 of Parker Kligerman, all for failing inspection twice. The No. 4 of Kevin Harvick (failed inspection three times) and No. 7 of JJ Yeley (failed inspection twice and late to qualifying inspection) served 30-minute practice holds.
