DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.

Mike "Magic Shoes" McLaughlin saved the best for last -- the last day of a busy three-day NASCAR Busch Series stock car test at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday -- as he clocked the fastest speed of the weekend Sunday in preparation for the season-opening Goody's Headache Powders 300 on Feb. 17.

McLaughlin, a former NASCAR Featherlite Modified Tour champion from Waterloo, N.Y., was clocked at 186.955 mph in his Royal Oak Chevrolet Monte Carlo. His run capped a busy session in which 41 teams tried out the 2.5-mile trioval, with four drivers topping the 186 mph mark.

Jeff Purvis led the pack Saturday and Jeff Green did the same Friday.
