Muniz, Mosack fastest in ARCA practice at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. — Actor-turned-racer Frankie Muniz topped Connor Mosack in ARCA Menards Series practice Thursday at Daytona International Speedway.

Muniz’s 49.393-second, chart-topping lap was one of his first laps in the draft. He will make his stock car racing debut in Saturday’s Daytona 200 (1:30 p.m. ET, FS1).

Behind Muniz was Connor Mosack, who posted a lap of 49.403 seconds in his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota.

Mosack is set to also race the No. 18 at Kansas in May and September, Charlotte in May, Pocono in July and Michigan in August. He is also set to run 23 NASCAR Xfinity Series races.

Experienced pizza delivery driver and veteran-in-the-making Andy Jankowiak was fourth in practice, also 0.001 seconds behind Scott. Jankowiak finished sixth and eighth in his last two ARCA Daytona starts.

Rounding out the top five was 62-year-old Dale Quarterley who, even after four decades of racing, is making just his second start at Daytona.

Farther back in the pack, two-time ARCA West champion Jesse Love was 12th, with a lap of 49.713 seconds. 2023 will be Love’s first full-time ARCA Menards Series season.
