Nationwide - Daytona - Qualifying times

Kevin Harvick led his Nationwide team to a front two-row lockout during qualifying for Friday evening's race at Daytona International Speedway.
Kevin Harvick took pole position for the Subway Jalapeno 250 Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway, leading his own team to a top four lock-out of the grid for Friday night's race. It's Harvick's first Nationwide pole of the season and the 23rd of his series career in 272 starts, as well as his third pole in 18 Daytona starts.

Kevin Harvick Inc. claimed second, third and fourth place with Tony Stewart, Elliott Sadler and Clint Bowyer respectively - the latter two rebounding from a collision during Thursday's rain-curtailed practice session.

The Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne was the best of the rest and qualified in fifth place, confirming his form in restrictor plate racing here. He'll line up alongside Jamie McMurray.

Danica Patrick returned to Nationwide duty this weekend and claimed seventh position on the grid, starting alongside Carl Edwards who returns to the #60 after pulling out of the Nationwide race at Road America last minute in order to focus on his Cup campaign.

Kenny Wallace qualified 19th but failed post-qualifying inspection and will start from the back of the grid in the race, which is scheduled for 7.30pm Eastern Time on Friday.

Friday Cup qualifying times are also available.

The Camping World Truck Series is not running this week; the next Truck race is at Kentucky next weekend, on July 7.

Thursday Practice times

Practice at Daytona on Thursday was delayed because of rain - the culmination of eight consecutive days' of wet weather in Florida that had contributed to twice the usual June rainfall for the area. Unsurprisingly, it took a long time to get the track dried out and only a single 45-minute practice session was possible on Thursday evening.

Joey Logano took the top spot, but the event was overshadowed by several incidents and accidents on the green track washed clean by all the rain. Clint Bowyer went for a spin after contact from behind with Elliott Sadler as the two closed on the back of the very slow #28 of former Daytona 500 winner Derrick Cope, with the #33 then getting stuck on the sodden infield grass.

Other incidents involved Steve Wallace, Michael Annett, Brian Scott and even Danica Patrick who brushed the wall while drafting with teammate Aric Almirola on her return to Nationwide Series duty.
