Alex Bowman Wins Fourth Daytona 500 Practice

Remember when Tommy Baldwin Racing nearly snagged the Daytona 500 following the jet-dryer incident of 2012? Their chances of victory this year seem to be just as good with Alex Bowman, who topped the charts in the second Daytona 500 practice of Wednesday with a speed of 200.495 mph.

Bowman, 21, is attempting to make his second Daytona 500 and his . He finished 23rd in last year’s edition.

Kasey Kahne (200.459 mph) and Trevor Bayne (200.387) were third and fourth quickest, respectively. It was the second time of the day they were at the top of the charts; they both were in the top four during the first practice of the day.

Paul Menard (200.374 mph) and Brian Scott (200.285) rounded out the top 5. No other drivers were faster than 200 mph.

Kyle Busch, fastest in the first practice of the day, slotted in seventh with a top speed of 198.487 mph.

In total, 32 cars took to the track. Notably absent were Jeb Burton and Michael Annett, who were involved in an accident during the first practice. Kyle Larson, who ran through the grass attempting to avoid the accident in the first practice, also did not practice.

The Sprint Cup cars will take to the track again on Thursday at noon.
