Behind Kenseth in Practice 3 were Aric Almirola (188.554 mph), Montoya (188.541 mph), Kurt Busch (188.508 mph) and Kasey Kahne (188.495 mph). Jeff Burton, Martin Truex Jr., Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Marcos Ambrose and Kevin Harvick rounded out the top 10.

The practice was cut short by a little more than a minute because of an oil spill that needed to be cleaned up before the Camping World Truck Series race slated for 2 p.m. ET.

The Sprint Cup Series STP 400 will get underway Sunday at 1 p.m. ET and will be aired on FOX.
