Jimmie Johnson posted the fastest single lap in Dover’s first practice session. His top speed was 163.867 mph.

The last time Johnson won a pole at Dover was in the 2010 AAA 400; he won that event. He also started first the following spring by NASCAR’s rule book and he finished ninth.

Someone needs to convince Ryan Newman that it is fall at Dover. He has finished eighth in each of the last AAA 400s.

Newman has been much stronger in the fall than spring. His last two FedEx 400s ended in the 30s. With recent momentum on his side this season, he should be able to reverse his personal trend.

Sam Hornish Jr. will attempt to get reacquainted with Dover International Speedway this week. His last Cup start on this track came in 2012 and his last attempt in an XFINITY car was in 2013.

Hornish’s most recent Cup effort ended in a 25th; his best result came in the XFINITY series in 2013 with a seventh. His finishing result this week is uncertain, but there is one statistic that is reliable: Hornish will finish worse than he qualifies. In 12 starts in both series, he has never improved during a race.

JJ Yeley will race for his fourth different owner in four Dover International Speedway races when he starts this Sunday’s FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks. His best result in that span was a 34th for Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR).

His 34th in the No. 36 was the fourth consecutive race he made at Dover for TBR, which suggests he benefited from the chemistry the team built. He is in another fulltime ride this week, and should be able to finish in the mid-30s again.

Jimmie Johnson has appealed his P1 penalty for taking too many passes through the inspection line in the past two weekends. The penalty would have caused him to make one of the last two selections for a pit stall, which would insure that he had one of the worst pits in the field.

Dover International Speedway has one of the most treacherous pit roads and this would have been a distinct disadvantage. By appealing, the team can defer the penalty to next week at Pocono where pit selection is not as critical.

No. 00 Cole Custer, No. 51 Daniel Suarez, No. 13 Cameron Hayley and No. 14 Daniel Hemric are the rest of the top 5 on the speed chart. Norm Benning was the slowest (130.933 mph) in the No. 6 Chevrolet Silverado.

Jamie McMurray’s crew chief Matt McCall has been place on probation through December 31st after receiving a P2 penalty from NASCAR. The punishment was for modifying the right rear quarter panel opening after qualifying inspection for the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

So long as McCall does not get dinged by NASCAR again, the impact of this penalty will not be felt, but he will face harsher fines if caught with another infraction. That will make the team slightly more conservative in future races.

Jimmie Johnson and Justin Allgaier have received P1 penalties from NASCAR for taking too many passes through the inspection line during the All-star and Coke 600 weekends. No matter how well they qualify at Dover International Speedway for the FedEx 400, they will have the last two pit stall selections.

On a tight pit road like Dover, that is a significant penalty and it is going to have a negative impact on Johnson’s ability to win. Allgaier qualified 35th in two of his last three starts and will not feel the impact nearly as much.
