Jason Bowles makes the most improvement in the Nationwide Series after this weekend’s race.

His 17th place finish in the Great Clips 200 was 16 places better than his last NNS finish. This earned the No. 81 Toyota driver a $2,600 check and the Featherlite "Most Improved Driver" award. Bowles is 13th in the 2012 Nationwide Series point standings.

Sprint Cup Series regular Denny Hamlin (No. 11 Toyota Camry) won the ToyotaCare 250, his 12th victory in 147 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is the No. 20 Hisense Toyota driver's first NXS victory and third top-10 finish in 2015. It is his third victory and 10th top-10 finish in 14 NXS races at Richmond International Raceway. This victory was the 100th win for Toyota in the NXS. Hamlin started on the pole and led 248 laps of the 250 lap event.

Kyle Larson advanced to the round of 12 for the seventh time in eight races this season. The only driver who has more top-12 starts is Keselowski who has been perfect in that regard.

Larson often uses these strong starts as a catalyst to finish well and it is only a matter of time before the No. 42 begins recording top-10 finishes in more than 50 percent of his starts. Climb on the bandwagon now.

Danica Patrick struggled most of Friday afternoon on a track type that has been kind to her in the last two starts. She earned back-to-back top-10s at Martinsville Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway, but will need to adjust her Chevrolet all night to collect a third straight triumph at Richmond International Raceway.

This was a similar pattern to what she faced at Bristol, but the team got the car working right at the end of the race. Attrition among some key players in the Food City 500 did not hurt either, and she cannot count on that at Richmond.

Jimmie Johnson simply could not find speed when he needed it and will roll off the grid 36th on Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. This is the third time this season that he failed to advance to the round of 24.

Before fantasy players write him off, however, they should note that his other two poor qualification efforts ended in a second at Bristol Motor Speedway after starting 28th and a victory at Atlanta from 37th.

Denny Hamlin will line up on the outside of the front row next to Joey Logano for the Toyota Owners 400. It is his first front row start at Richmond since he won the pole for the 2008 Crown Royal 400.

Hamlin has two front row starts to his credit and they are both poles. His best result after starting that well was 15th in his rookie season of 2006, but on the heels of a strong Martinsville run three weeks ago he has the confidence to win a second straight Virginia race.

Joey Logano posted a lap of 127.071 mph and won the pole for Saturday night’s Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway. This is his 11th career pole.

This is Logano’s third pole of the season - the most of all drivers - and that has been a precursor to strong runs all year. He led the field to green at Atlanta in March before finishing fourth and came home third at Martinsville after posting the fastest lap in time trials on that flat bullring.

Sprint Cup regular Denny Hamlin (No. 11 Toyota Camry) won the Coors Light Pole Award for the ToyotaCare 250 with a lap of 21.762 seconds, 124.069 mph.

This is the No. 20 Hisense Toyota driver's 17th pole in 147 NASCAR XFINITY Series races. This is his first pole and third top-10 NXS start in 2015 and his third pole in 14 NXS races at Richmond (VA) International Raceway.

Carl Edwards posted the second-quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Toyota Owners 400. His top speed was 122.181 mph during his first 10 laps on track.

Speed has not been an issue for Edwards all season. He has put himself in dangerous spots by trying too hard to establish the No. 19 as a car to beat. Unfortunately, that intangible is not one that can be factored into a handicapping formula.
Apr 24 - 4:19 PM

AJ Allmendinger was notably strong in the final practice session for the Toyota Owners 400. He posted the third-quickest speed among 32 drivers in final practice at 122.139 mph from laps two through 11.

Allmendinger started the season high in the points until a couple of misfortunate races derailed his effort. This could put him back on track to climb into the top 16 once more, but starting him does not come without risk.

NASCAR veteran driver and TV personality Kenny Wallace will pilot the No. 26 Toyota next week at Talladega Superspeedway for the NASCAR XFINITY Series race.

This will be his 40th career start at Talladega - with 24 of those previous starts coming in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. His best Cup finish at 'Dega came in 2000 where he finished second as he pushed the late Dale Earnhardt to the win. The JGL Racing team planned on Mike Wallace driving the No. 26 next week (like he did in the season opening XFINITY race in Daytona) however, over last weekend Mike underwent triple bypass heart surgery. With a replacement needed, Kenny and his strong success at Talladega was a logical choice to fill in for his brother.-Integrity Sports Marketing

Kevin Harvick posted the quickest time in the final practice session for the Toyota Owners 400. His top speed of 122.212 mph was set from laps five through 14.

Harvick’s incredible start to the 2015 season took a momentary hit at Bristol when he crashed in the aftermath of the Jimmie Johnson/Jeb Burton kerfuffle, but there is no way that is going to stall his momentum.
