Kurt Busch Paces First Sprint Unlimited Practice

The first of two practice sessions for Saturday night’s Sprint Unlimited completed just moments ago at Daytona International Speedway. Kurt Busch, who was the only driver to crack the 200 mph mark in the draft, ran 23 circuits and paced the field with a fast lap of 44.832 sec. (200.749 mph). Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. came in second, followed by defending champion Kevin Harvick. Joey Logano and Kasey Kahne rounded out the top 5.

While much of the session was without incident, Tony Stewart was called to the NASCAR hauler after failing to respond to a request by officials to bring his car in to the scale to be weighed.

Drivers will return to the track at 6:30 p.m. ET for the final session.
