DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - For the first time since Speedweeks began last week a Ford driver did not top Daytona 500 practice.

Kyle Busch put his Toyota on top of the speed chart in Friday's second session with a lap of 199.885 mph. Last Saturday night's Budweiser Shootout winner was the best of the 23 drivers who took part in the session with a number of teams again electing to sit out.

Busch's Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Joey Logano was second fastest with a lap of 199.885 mph, an identical mark to the No. 18 M&M's Camry as teh duo hooked up in a tandem draft.

Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin and Tony Stewart rounded out the top five.

Final Daytona 500 practice is slated for Saturday morning.
