First practice over at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The first Budweiser Shootout practice is over at Daytona International Speedway.
There were no incidents, even though a cars did get a little wiggly a time or two during the 45-minute session. There was a caution near the very end of the session when a piece off David Reutimann's Toyota flew off.
Lap speeds are pretty much pointless in a restrictor-plate pracitce because it depends so much on who is where and who is pushing whom in the draft. But for the record, the fastest lap was turned by Kyle Busch at 191.453 mph in his No. 18 Toyota. Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Reed Sorenson, AJ Allmendinger and Dale Jr. were next on the list.
There's another one-hour practice to come at 6:30 p.m.

Was watching the post practice stuff about guys guzzleing water. Why not get DP to qulify the car & run the first lap and then substitute in Lagano?

hell from what i saw from the 20 car all afternoon, David would do a better job in the car. Let Lagano change tires

I taped last night's Shootout practice - the cars looked good in the draft and able to pass pretty much at will. I haven't been able to see anything today - I'm more interesting in the Shootout and the ARCA race and how the cars race there.

BTW, did any spectators even attend the practices last night?
