DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Ryan Newman found out just how unstable the 2013 Sprint Cup cars are at Daytona International Speedway on Wednesday as he spun in the first Daytona 500 practice.

Newman spun right in front of Mark Martin and Carl Edwards, with all three cars sustaining enough damage to possibly keep them from practicing the rest of the day. They should be able to repair the damage prior to Thursday’s 150-mile qualifying races.

For Martin, it marked his third wreck in a week as he was collected in accidents triggered by Matt Kenseth in practice last week and by Tony Stewart in the Sprint Unlimited.

“I’ve been in three practice sessions and in all three of them, one of the top drivers in the sport wrecked right in front of me,” Martin said.

“I can’t believe it. I’m not comfortable practicing anymore because we keep wadding them up and there’s not really any reason for it. If they wrecking right in front of you, it’s hard to miss them.”
