Ricky Stenhouse Jr. led a Ford onslaught during Saturday’s final NASCAR Cup practice for Sunday’s 59th Daytona 500.

Stenhouse Jr. was the fastest of six Ford drivers that paced the 28-driver field with a top speed of 198.452 mph, nearly two mph faster than second-fastest Joey Logano (196.751 mph).

Logano’s Team Penske teammate, Brad Keselowski, was third-fastest (196.747), followed by three Stewart-Haas Racing teammates: Kevin Harvick (196.726), Kurt Busch (196.700) and Clint Bowyer (196.674).

The fastest Chevrolet driver was Elliott Sadler, seventh-fast at 196.584 mph. The fastest Toyota driver was Canadian driver D.J. Kennington, who was 25th-fastest at 192.814 mph.

In an interesting twist, no other Toyota drivers took part in the practice session at Daytona International Speedway.
