Clint Bowyer fastest in final Atlanta practice, Kyle Busch crashes

Clint Bowyer was the fastest driver in Saturday’s final practice session for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.

Rain canceled qualifying sessions for both the Xfinity and Gander Outdoors Truck Series but the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series was able to get on the 1.5-mile track and practice. Pole sitter Aric Almirola was 13th fastest.

Kyle Busch would spin in this session damaging the back end of his No. 18 Snickers Toyota.
