Roush Fenway Racing's Greg Biffle was at the top of his game for the first two practice sessions for the Daytona 500 on Saturday, and finished fastest in both - making him a strong favourite for winning pole position in Sunday's qualifying session.

"We're gonna be one of probably eight cars that has a stab at it," said Biffle after a fastest time of the day of 46.537s (193.395mph) on the 2.5-mile tri-oval circuit.
