DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- David Gilliland and Trevor Bayne took
advantage of cooler temperatures and topped 200 mph in the final
practice session for Sunday's Daytona 500.
Gilliland reached 200.138 mph during his fast lap.
Former Daytona 500 winner Jamie McMurray posted the fastest
10-lap average, at 195.650 mph.
NASCAR champion Tony Stewart was one of seven drivers who didn't leave the garage.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Danica Patrick's chances of winning
Saturday's Nationwide race from the pole were dashed when she was wrecked by JR Motorsports teammate Cole Whitt midway through the 300-mile race at Daytona.
Patrick eventually got back into the race after her crew made
extensive repairs to her car in the garage area. She finished 38th
in a wreck-filled race that was won by James Buescher (BUH'-shur).
