NSCS: Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Leads First Daytona 500 Practice

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series would take to the track for the first practice for the Daytona 500 on Saturday morning. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. would post the quickest speed with a lap of 202.643 mph as he looks to improve on last year’s finish of 27th in the series points standings.

Sam Hornish Jr. and Trevor Bayne would tie for second quickest at 202.193mph, as Hornish makes the move from Joe Gibbs Racing to Richard Petty Motorsports, while Bayne makes the move from the XFINITY Series to the Sprint Cup Series. Aric Almirola and Dale Earnhardt Jr. would round out the top-five.

Greg Biffle was sixth quickest, followed by Denny Hamlin, David Gilliland, Danica Patrick and Carl Edwards.

The Sprint Cup Series would return to the track on Saturday afternoon, with qualifying scheduled for 1 p.m. EST on Sunday. Group qualifying will take place for the first time in a Daytona 500 qualifying session, with the session locking in the front row and setting up the starting line-ups for the Budweiser Duels.
