DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.

Terry Labonte resumed his spot at the top of the General Motors NASCAR Winston Cup pre-season stock car testing speed chart Tuesday at Daytona International Speedway, even though teammate Ken Schrader had stolen his thunder late Monday afternoon at the top of the winter roster.

Breaking with the usual norm of posting a lap during the "Happy Hour" period preceeding the track's closing at 5 p.m., Labonte was timed at 47.954 seconds, an average speed of 187.680 mph, during the morning session in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
