However, everything wouldn’t go as Happy wanted, though, as the engine would blow up midway through practice. As a result, he will start the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 from the rear of the field.

“Mainly the Hendrick engine guys just wanting to know what I felt. This is a very rare occasion.  This is the first one I have ever had, ” Harvick said. “The engine shop does a great job.  I am just glad that it happened today.  Our Jimmy John’s/Budweiser team is doing a great job and the car is handling good.  If we were going to have something happen, this is a good place to have it happen because you can pass.”

Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey Kahne was second quickest as he tries to score his second straight victory at Atlanta after winning last September. Sophomore driver Austin Dillon was third quickest, followed by Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards.

AJ Allmendinger was sixth quickest, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer, Casey Mears and Jamie McMurray.
