Brad Keselowski and RFK Racing have brought another quick vehicle to Daytona International Speedway for Speedweeks, leading a small pack of drivers in the final practice ahead of Sunday’s Daytona 500.
Keselowski, piloting the No. 6 NEXILIZET Ford Mustang, posted a quick time of 47.071 seconds (191.201mph) in Saturday’s 50-minute practice session, leading a string of six Ford Mustangs at the top of the timesheet.
Joey Logano, the defending series champion, was second-quickest in Saturday’s practice session, with Ryan Blaney, Ryan Preece, and Harrison Burton completing the top-five laps.
Chase Briscoe rounded out a top-six sweep for Ford Performance, while AJ Allmendinger, Justin Haley, Noah Gragson, and Riley Herbst rounded out the top-10.
After the majority of the field made laps in practice on Friday, only 17 of the 40 drivers that will compete in Sunday’s 500-mile contest turned a lap time, including Zane Smith, Corey LaJoie, Conor Daly, Austin Cindric, Jimmie Johnson, Todd Gilliland, and Tyler Reddick.
