Daytona 500 Happy Hour Speeds Carl Edwards was quickest during Happy Hour but perhaps the biggest surprise was who was second fastest. After finishing a lap down during his Gatorade Duel on Thursday, Kyle Petty surprised everyone with the second quickest time.
Just imagine what chrome rims would do...
“Our car is a lot better than it was all week long," an exuberant Petty explained. "Our guys worked really, really hard. The Evernham Engines are a lot better here than what we had in the 150s. We struggled there. It’s an indicator that our guys are still pumped up even after a bad week, so this is a great way to end it. But, is this an indicator of how you are going to do in the race? Not by any stretch of the imagination. I think it’s that way at Daytona and Talladega also.”
