Practice Crash Ends Session

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Practice was anything but perfect Tuesday at Daytona International Speedway.

Jack Sprague, Steve Park, Jeff Burton, Elliott Sadler and Mike Skinner were involved in a wild tangle that cut chort the day's NASCAR Winston Cup Series practice session. No one was injured however three teams were forced to go to their backup machines for Thursday's gatorade Twin 125 mile qualifying races.

Sadler, Burton and Skinner will go to their secondary cars while Park and Sprague's teams were able to make repairs.

"To the best of my knowledge, we got ran into by a rookie," Skinner said, referring to Sprague, who is a Busch and truck series veteran but Winston Cup freshman in 2003. "Whether he got pushed down there or not, I don't know."

Sprague's NetZero Pontiac was badly damaged. "I was in the middle, Park was on the outside and he didn't stay up and he hit me in the right front, drove me into Skinner and it was all over," said Sprague.

"He bounced off me. I was up by the wall and couldn't go any higher except for the grandstands," he said.

Dale Jarrett led the session with a speed of 188.494 mph. Another Winston Cup practice is scheduled for Wednesday.
