The search for speed continued Saturday during the third day of Preseason Thunder testing at Daytona International Speedway — among NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers with their race cars still intact.

After Friday’s 12-car accident during drafting practice sent many teams packing, single-car runs were the order of the day among those who stayed for the duration.

On NASCAR’s part, this year’s season-opening test was a sharp contrast to that of 2012, when the sanctioning body spent three days tinkering with the superspeedway rules package in an attempt to break up two-car drafts and to scale down speeds that exceeded 206 mph.
