Joey Logano kicked off the 2017 Monster Energy Cup Series season as the first driver on the track at Daytona International Speedway.

While he posted a sporty lap of 191.351mph, it was his Penske teammate Brad Keselowski that topped the speed chart in the first practice session 191.604mph for Saturday night’s Advance Auto Parts Clash. Keselowski’s 22 laps were also the most completed in the 55-minute session.

Kyle Larson was second quick with a lap of 191.436mph, followed by Logano, Kevin Harvick (190.743mph) and Danica Patrick (190.235mph).

Austin Dillon, Chase Elliott, Jimmie Johnson, Jamie McMurray, Alex Bowman and Chris Buescher rounded out the 11 drivers that participated in the exercise.

NASCAR called a caution at the 33-minute mark for debris in Turn 4. At that juncture in opening practice, only 10 cars had taken laps on the track. Larson was atop the chart with a lap of 190.840 mph.
