Joey Logano was fastest in Thursday's first practice for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night. Logano in the Home Depot No. 20 Toyota Camry, topped the charts with a lap of 46.41 at 193.932 mph around the Daytona International Speedway. The July summer race seems to come down to more handling than speed, versus the 500 in February. There will be a different restrictor plate for this race and the drivers will go back to running a plate race with a spoiler instead of the wing.

Drivers will have a lot to review after practice to see who has what before Final Practice on Thursday evening, which can be seen at 6:30pm ET on Speed, weather permitting as storms have been popping up around the area.
