Brian Pattie, crew chief on the No. 15 Toyota driven by Clint Bowyer in the Sprint Cup Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway wins the DIRECTV Crew Chief of the Race award.

The $5,000 cash award is presented to the crew chief of the driver who demonstrates the best qualifying and race effort as determined by averaging the sum of their qualifying and race finish for each event. Bowyer started sixth and finished second. He moved up two spots to finish the season runner-up in the 2012 Chase standings.

Danica Patrick posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway with a speed of 198.133 mph. Her three teammates, Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Tony Stewart were all lined up behind her.

The Stewart-Haas Racing teammates were drafting with Hendrick Motorsports as they caught another pack, which underscores how important drafting is on restrictor-plate, superspeedways. Patrick is more than capable of staying out of trouble and finishing in the top 10 this week.

In addition to rolling out a backup car, Greg Biffle was forced to change his engine for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. No matter where he qualifies, he will have to start from the back of the pack.

Starting position is meaningless on plate tracks and Biffle’s ability to get to the front is not in question. He has not finished among the top 15 in his last seven Coke Zero 400 attempts, however, and cannot be considered a favorite this week.

Jamie McMurray is one of several drivers who will roll out a backup for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. He was involved in the nine-race crash that occurred 10 minutes into in the first session.

Midway through final practice McMurray was about midway down the speed chart. Raw speed is not particularly important in pack racing, but the No. 1 team has to feel better after shaking the car down.

Ty Dillon tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway.

The No. 3 Yuengling America's Oldest Brewery Chevrolet Camaro driver ran a fast lap of 179.978 mph. No. 13 Mark Thompson, No. 40 Derek White, No. 22 Joey Logano and No. 26 Timmy Hill round out the top-five of the 23 cars out on the track. The No. 97 Chevrolet driven by Peyton Sellers was the slowest in the final practice session.
Jul 3 - 5:40 PM

Dale Earnhardt Jr. posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona. His top speed was 202.284 mph.

Speed at Daytona is essentially meaningless since the fastest times are set when a driver runs up on another group. Still, Earnhardt is the plate track Pied Piper and he should be considered a favorite on Sunday.
Jul 3 - 3:59 PM

Brennan Poole has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the first practice for the XFINITY Series Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway.

The average speed of 186.750 mph in the No. 42 DC Solar Chevrolet Camaro was best of the six cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. No. 6 Darrell Wallace Jr. (186.226 mph), No. 43 Dakoda Armstrong (186.157), No. 7 Regan Smith (185.895), No. 2 Brian Scott (185.707) and No. 9 Chase Elliot (184.353) are the rest on this list.
Jul 3 - 3:41 PM

Sprint Cup regular David Ragan led the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway.

The lap of 190.573 mph in the No. 20 Interstate Batteries Toyota was best of the 36 cars out on the track for this session. No. 6 Darrell Wallace Jr., No. 16 Ryan Reed, No. 18 Daniel Suarez and No. 2 Brian Scott are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Peyton Sellers in the No. 97 Chevrolet Camaro was the slowest.
Jul 3 - 3:38 PM

Carl Edwards did everything right in practice, but still wrecked. He slowed to miss a spinning Kyle Busch before getting run over from behind.

Edwards has been crash-prone in the past on restrictor-plate, superspeedways and often sustains damage in practice as well. Luck is unpredictable in NASCAR, but his is bad enough to cause fantasy owners to avoid the No. 19.
Jul 3 - 3:34 PM

Martin Truex Jr. intended to make only one run in the first practice session and he was racing in the pack that included a multi-car accident when Brad Keselowski turned Kyle Busch in front of traffic.

Truex will have to go to a backup as he attempts to score a third consecutive top-15 at Daytona. His previous two attempts ended in the 40s, which makes him a questionable value at his salary cap level.
Jul 3 - 3:29 PM

Brad Keselowski turned Kyle Busch in the first practice session for the Coke Zero 400. Nine others were involved in the aftermath of the accident.

Keselowski got away unscathed but several of the drivers will need to go to backups including Busch. Notables in the accident include Martin Truex Jr., Greg Biffle, Denny Hamlin, Ryan Newman, and Sam Hornish Jr.
Jul 3 - 3:21 PM

Sam Hornish Jr. has been remarkably good on plate tracks this year considering that he missed the entire 2013 and 2014 seasons on this course type. He finished 12th in the Daytona 500 and was sixth in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Hornish is liable to go unnoticed this week, but anyone who had him on their roster at Sonoma Raceway will want to roll the dice and keep him activated; he could be this week’s top sleeper and earn back-to-back top-10s for the first time in his career.
