Ryan Reed won the Powershares QQQ 300, his second victory in 106 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is the No. 16 Lilly Diabetes Ford Mustang driver's second victory and fourth top-10 finish in seven races at Daytona International Speedway (DIS). Kasey Kahne (finished second) posted his 12th top-10 finish in 22 NXS races at DIS. Austin Dillon (third) posted his seventh top-10 finish in nine NXS races at DIS. William Byron (ninth) was the highest finishing rookie. Ryan Reed leads the NXS point standings by 9 points over Brendan Gaughan (fifth).

It does not count for his Cup records, but Ty Dillon has already earned one top-10 at the senior level with a ninth in the Can-Am Duel at Daytona.

Actually, make that two. Dillon finished seventh in relief of Tony Stewart last spring at Talladega. Dillon is expected to be the third driver in the Rookie of the Year battle, so there is no reason to avoid him in this wild card restrictor-plate, superspeedway race.

Erik Jones had the 16th-fastest speed in the first practice session of Daytona 500 prelims and was fourth best in the third-practice, but he finished 18th in his Duel and lines up 34th.

Those three factors combine for an average of 18.0, which puts him firmly in the middle of this chart. Great things are expected of Jones, but he should be saved for the upcoming unrestricted, intermediate speedway races.

Kasey Kahne posted the 11-best time in his combined practice sessions.

Kahne rolls off the grid 26th, but he was seventh-fastest in the first practice for the Daytona 500, second-fast in practice two, and 10th in Happy Hour. He should be able to move forward in the race and earn some very important place-differential points.

Joey Logano posted the second-fastest lap in final practice for the Daytona 500 with a speed of 196.751 mph.

Logano won The Clash and finished eighth in his Duel. This year, he has more help in the Ford camp from Stewart-Haas Racing and that should help him earn a top-10 finish.
Feb 25 - 6:16 PM

Brad Keselowski posted the quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Daytona 500 with a speed of 195.635 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

Practice is not particularly predictive at Daytona International Speedway, but average speeds are of greater importance than single fast laps. The doubt surrounding Keselowski might come from his level of patience. If he presses the issue at the wrong place and time, he could be the trigger for a "Big One" crash.
Feb 25 - 3:10 PM

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Daytona 500 with a speed of 198.452 mph.

Stenhouse led a group of six Fords that drafted to the lead. Last year, Toyota set a precedent by working well together and the other manufacturers have taken note. Look for these kinds of deals to define the packs in the race as well—as long as they are able to find one another in the draft.

Brandon Jones won the Coors Light 21 Means 21 Pole Award for this afternoon's NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) season-opening Powershares QQQ 300 with a lap of 184.472 mph.

This is the No. 33 Nexteer Automotive Chevrolet Camaro driver's first pole in 39 NXS races. It is his first pole in three races at Daytona International Speedway (DIS). Ryan Reed (second) posted his fourth top-10 start in seven races at DIS. Brennan Poole (third) posted his second top-10 start at DIS. Daniel Hemric (fourth) was the fastest qualifying rookie.

Kaz Grala won the NextEra Energy Resources 250, his first victory in ten NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races.

This is the No. 33 Kiklos Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil Chevrolet Silverado driver's first top-10 finish at Daytona International Speedway (DIS). Austin Wayne Self (second) posted his first top-10 finish in two races at DIS. Chase Briscoe scored a third place finish in his first career NCWTS start. Grala, who started the race on the pole, leads the point standings by 14 points over Johnny Sauter. He becomes the youngest Daytona winner in NASCAR national series history at 18 years, 1 month and 26 days - previous record was held by Tyler Reddick (19 years, 1 month, 9 days).

Kaz Grala won the Keystone Light 21 Means 21 Pole Award for the NextEra Energy Resources 250 with a lap of 180.676 mph.

This is the No. 33 Kiklos Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil Chevrolet Silverado driver's first pole in ten NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races. It is his first pole at Daytona International Speedway (DIS). Johnny Sauter (second) posted his sixth top-10 start in nine races at DIS. Spencer Gallagher (third) posted his second top-10 start at DIS. Grala has become the youngest NASCAR national series pole winner at Daytona at the age 18 years, 1 month and 26 days (previous record was held by Dylan Kwasniewski at the age of 18 years, 8 months and 22 days).
Feb 24 - 7:38 PM

Cole Custer (No. 00 Haas Automation Ford Mustang) had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the PowerShares QQQ 300 at Daytona Int'l Speedway.

The average speed of 184.506 mph was best of the three cars that ran at least 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 39 Ryan Sieg (184.453 mph) and No. 28 Dakoda Armstrong (184.452 mph) are the others on this list.
