DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (AP) - Richard Childress Racing teammates Jeff Burton and Clint Bowyer have tied for the fastest time in the final practice for the Daytona 500.

Both drivers were clocked at 200.316 mph while pushing each other early in Saturday’s last practice.

Regan Smith, meanwhile, had the best consecutive 10-lap average at 195.285 mph. He was being pushed by Kurt Busch, and the two worked together earlier this week in the qualifying race Busch won.

Very few teams put in much work, and six drivers didn’t practice at all, including Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart.

The season-opening Daytona 500 is Sunday.
