Morning's Mightiest: Montoya
Martin Truex Jr.
Kevin Harvick turned in the sixth-fastest best lap, followed by Edwards, Paul Menard, Ragan, and Kyle Busch. Kasey Kahne made his “Cactus Trials” debut after recovering from an illness that kept him out of (and Nationwide Series veteran Jason Keller in) the No. 9 Dodge yesterday. Though Mark Martin will run the No. 8 at PIR in April, teammate Aric Almirola tested the car at points throughout the morning session, as he will climb into the ride in the November event, just as he did in 2007.
