LAS VEGAS, Nev.—With rain washing out all Sprint Cup activity on Friday at Las Vegas—including time trials—drivers were doubly happy for the practice time they got at Las Vegas during an extra test day on Thursday.

“That was a good move by NASCAR to give us some extra time, on top of the fact that if we did have rain or some issues, we would all have on-track activity,” said five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, who will start third in Sunday’s Kobalt Tools 400 with the top 36 drivers in the field set according to 2012 owner points.

“Our car was fast. It took us a few runs to sort out things down in one and two over the bumps, but once we got that under control, then we had a lot of speed in our Chevy.”
