AVONDALE, Ariz. — After taking the top spot in Sprint Cup practice earlier in the day, Joey Logano accomplished the same feat in NASCAR XFINITY Series practice at Phoenix International Raceway.

The driver of the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford completed a lap of 27.338 seconds around the one-mile track settled out in the sands of suburban of Phoenix to take the top spot in first practice for the Axalta Faster. Tougher. Brighter. 200.

Fellow Sprint Cup driver Kevin Harvick was second to Logano with his lap of 27.388 seconds.

Rounding out the top-10 in the first of two practice sessions of the day for the XFINITY Series were Regan Smith, Matt Kenseth, Brian Scott, Erik Jones, Austin Dillon, Chase Elliott, Ty Dillon, and Chris Buescher.

Qualifying trim was primarily being worked on in the 55-minute session as only two drivers – Brennan Poole and Mario Gosselin – made a run of 10 consecutive laps on the track.

Final practice for the Axalta Faster. Tougher. Brighter. 200 is about to get underway with an 85-minute session that will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 2.
