Team Penske drivers Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski showed the way in the second round of Daytona 500 practice Saturday afternoon at Daytona International Speedway, topping the speed charts in the nearly 2-hour session.
Logano was first at 195.933 miles per hour, followed closely by Keselowski’s lap of 195.848 mph, both speeds being set late in the session. Ryan Blaney made it an all-Ford top three, with brothers Kurt and Kyle Busch completing the top five.
Saturday’s second practice was the final one before the 44 cars entered qualify.
Daytona 500 qualifying will be Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
The qualifying format will be one lap of single-car qualifying for all the cars entered in the Daytona 500, followed by a second round with the 12 fastest cars from round one.
The two fastest drivers in the second round of qualifying will lock into the front row of the 500, with the remaining 38 spots determined in the Can-Am Duel 150 qualifying races Thursday evening.
Saturday night at 8 p.m., FOX will air the Sprint Unlimited, the first race of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. The race will be 75 laps with a caution planned for Lap 25, followed by a 50-lap final segment.
This will be a non-points race and in the event of a red flag, teams will be allowed to work on their cars, which would not be allowed in a regular-season race.
