Biffle, Roush Fenway Lead Pack at Daytona practice For the second straight day a Roush Fenway Ford set the pace at Daytona International Speedway, with Greg Biffle leading both of Saturday’s practice sessions for next week’s Daytona 500. Biffle’s fastest lap of 193.395 mph was the fastest of the day. In addition, Carl Edwards was seventh fastest in the second practice, with Matt Kenseth and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. turning the 13th and 14th fastest times in the session. RFR’s Trevor Bayne was second fastest in the second practice session and fourth in the first session in the Wood Brothers’ No. 21 Ford.
“I feel really good,” said Biffle of the day’s performance. “It’s a testament to how hard these guys have worked…Matt (Puccia) and all these guys on the team who work at the track and the shop. They’ve worked really hard on these cars and the motors have been awesome.”
“Doug (Yates) and the guys have this fuel injection really dialed in and figured out. They’re really paying attention to detail and worked really hard on the dyno and I’m just lucky I get to drive it. Trust me, I’ve been down here a ton of time where you’re 23rd or 18th or whatever, so it’s nice to be near the front or at the front.”
Kenseth paced the field in Budweiser Shootout practice on Friday.
Drivers take to the track tonight for the all-star Budweiser Shootout (8:00 p.m. EST, FOX). Daytona 500 qualifying is set for tomorrow at 1:05 p.m. EST and will be televised on FOX.
