With five in the top 10, Fords were still dominant in the second and final Cup practice Friday at Talladega Superspeedway, but it was Kasey Kahne and his Chevrolet that were the fastest in the session.

Kahne had a field-best speed of 191.222 mph, followed by Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. (191.069), Kurt Busch (190.257), Trevor Bayne (190.102) and Chase Elliott (189.729).

Sixth through 10th were Paul Menard (189.504), Brad Keselowski (188.645), Landon Cassill (188.630), Kevin Harvick (188.552) and Chris Buescher (188.534).

Only 23 cars took to the track because several had to serve penalties from last week’s race at Charlotte.
