Kurt Busch stole the lead at the last second of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series final practice with a top speed of 194.630 mph Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway.

After making contact with the wall in Friday's practice, Busch had to result to his backup car. Busch will start from the rear in Monday's race.

Carl Edwards was second fastest with a speed of 194.616 mph. 

Kevin Harvick, Greg Biffle and Aric Almirola rounded out the top five. 

Austin Dillon wasn't feeling well, so his brother, NASCAR Nationwide Series rookie Ty Dillon, filled in for him in practice. Ty Dillon finished 23rd-fastest.

The Sprint Cup Series Duck Commander 500 will take place Monday at noon ET (FOX).
