Cup - Daytona - Friday practice

18 February 2012

The first track activity of the new NASCAR season indicated that Daytona might see a return to pack racing and the end to the controversial two-car tandem drafting that emerged last season.

However, a big wreck sparked by Tony Stewart spinning Kurt Busch caused several big name drivers to have to take to back-up cars toward the end of the first practice session for this weekend's Budweiser Shootout exhibition event, and the later session was curtailed by rain after only 12 cars had been able to set lap times.
