Bumpy Early Ride For Logano

Middletown Native Joey Logano Prepares For Daytona

Kasey Kahne led the way during Sprint Cup practice at Daytona International Speedway on Wednesday, while Joey Logano continued to struggle during his first week as a full-time driver on NASCAR's top circuit.

Kahne posted a session-best lap of 190.994 mph in his No. 9 Dodge. He was followed by fellow Dodge drivers Kurt Busch (190.840) and Sam Hornish Jr. (190.678).

Logano's session ended early when his No. 20 Toyota scraped the wall, sending him to the garage six laps into the hour-long session. Logano was unhurt, and stood in the garage watching crew members try to get the car in shape to run during the afternoon practice.

Pole-sitter Martin Truex Jr. ran 37th among the 54 cars that hit the track with a fast lap of 187.402 mph.
