Daytona Beach, FL (Feb. 8, 2004) -- Sunday's 10:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. session included practice for series' competitors and set up testing on the race cars.

Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner, Helio Castroneves, representing the IRL IndyCar Series was joined by World of Outlaws driver, Danny Lasoski and NASCAR NEXTEL Cup driver, Ryan Newman.

A single car incident involving Castroneves occurred between turns one and two on lap six of the session. Castroneves was running in the high groove next to Lasoski with Newman close behind. According to all three drivers, no contact was made and the incident was caused by air being removed from the rear spoiler of the Castroneves car, which then became unstable. Castroneves was uninjured in the incident; he was examined and released by infield care center.

The session resumed with the 2002 IROC Champion, Kevin Harvick, representing the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup joining Lasoski and Newman.
