2012 Samsung Mobile 500: Trevor Bayne Has Fastest Practice Lap

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers had their final practice laps before qualifying on Friday afternoon, and Trevor Bayne ran the fastest lap of all drivers, with a top lap time of 184.641 miles per hour.

Bayne did notch a victory at Texas Motor Speedway last year, but it was in the Nationwide Series, as he won the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300.

Ford cars had a nice showing in the final practice for the Samsung Mobile 500. Not only was Bayne driving a Ford for the fastest lap time, but the next two fastest laps were also in Ford cars:

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points leader Greg Biffle (No. 16 Filtrete Ford) and defending Samsung Mobile 500 champion Matt Kenseth (No. 17 Best Buy Ford) gave Roush Fenway the next two spots and a top-three sweep for Ford. Biffle ran a lap of 184.370 mph and Kenseth followed at 184.351.
