Daytona 500 - Practice 1 and 2 times

Mark Martin dominated both practice sessions at Daytona International Speedway ahead of Sunday's qualifying.
However, defending champion Jamie McMurray will be forced to use a back-up car for qualifying, after his main race car - a brand-new chassis that his team had used for all its Daytona testing in December and January - crashed out on the sixth lap in the second practice session after suffering a cut tyre.

McMurray's car chief Gary Putnam said his team would use its Budweiser Shootout car as its Daytona 500 backup, after McMurray finished second in that event.
