[media-credit name=”Brad Keppel” align=”alignright” width=”208″][/media-credit]Kasey Kahne led NASCAR Nationwide Series practice at the end of their afternoon session. Kahne has never won in the Nationwide Series in Phoenix. He has not ran a race in a Nationwide Series car here since 2007 while driving for Ray Evernham and he finished 6th.
Joey Logano was second quickest as the young twenty-one year old is coming up a top ten finish in the Daytona 500. Sam Hornish Jr. was third quickest and last season celebrated his first win in NASCAR here in Phoenix in November. Hornish has a great car. Can he repeat?
Rounding out the rest of the top ten were: Elliott Sadler, Austin Dillon, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Justin Allgaier, Cole Whitt, and Trevor Bayne. Kyle Busch was 16th quickest in his #54 Monster Energy Drink Toyota followed by Danica Patrick who was 18th quickest.
Earlier during the day, Danica Patrick was asked a question about the San Diego Sports TV Anchor that was suspended for implying that Danica was the B-word. Patrick said that she had just found out about it and thought it was “really funny how someone could feel that strong over me, but I don’t think you’re supposed to imply swear words especially while on air.”
