If Thursday's practices are any indication, Saturday night's Coke Zero 400 may come down to the last car able to circle the track under its own power.

In the first practice. David Ragan spun and collected Kasey Kahne and Kyle Busch. All three had to go to backups.

In the second practice, Carl Edwards got into the back of Joey Logano as Logano was slowing to get to pit road. However, both cars' damage was minor enough that neither driver has to go to a backup.

And later in the second practice, it looked like Round 2 of that supposed Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin feud had happened, as Hamlin went into the backstretch wall after being clipped by Busch, who was already in his backup car. That wreck collected Reed Sorenson, Tony Stewart and Robert Richardson Jr., and they, along with Hamlin, have to go to backup cars.

However, all parties involved chalked it up to "one of 'dem racin' deals" at a restrictor-plate track, and no feelings were harmed or helmets thrown.
