For Timothy Peters, Friday night's main event at Homestead will be his last shot to overcome an 11 point deficit and take over the championship lead.

Momentum will be on their side with a fourth place finish last weekend, and a fast, newly built Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra chassis prepared for battle. Peters has his strategy laid out as well, and knows his team will stop at nothing to get their Tundra into victory lane and do all they can to capture the championship trophy in the process.-Red Horse Racing

Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished third in the first two races of this season. Last week he was third in Daytona and he repeated that effort at Atlanta.

This was Earnhardt’s fifth top-10 and sixth top-15 in the last six races dating back to last fall’s Martinsville victory. He started last year with a three top-fives and should be considered one of the favorites next week at Las Vegas.

Kevin Harvick finished second to Joey Logano last week at Daytona and he finished runner-up for a second consecutive week at Atlanta—this time to Jimmie Johnson. After blowing an engine in practice, he was forced to come from the back of the pack along with Johnson.

Harvick is closing in on a victory and in the meantime he is scoring a lot of fantasy points. Las Vegas is a similar track to Atlanta and Phoenix—where Harvick has dominated for the past two years—is also just around the corner, which makes Harvick a place-and-hold driver for the moment.

Failing to clear inspection in time to take a qualification lap on Friday, Jimmie Johnson had a lot of ground to make up in the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500. He started 37th, cracked the top 10 by lap 40, led 92 laps, and scored his 71st Cup win.

This was also his 21st victory on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track and his second consecutive after winning at Texas last year. There are no more questions about what might be wrong with the No. 48 team.

Kevin Harvick (engine change), Michael Annett (driver change), and Tony Stewart (missed drivers meeting) will officially drop to the back of the pack at Atlanta to start the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500.

In the case of Stewart, he was already at the back because he failed to post a qualification time. Annett also does not have far to go based on Brian Scott’s attempt, but Harvick will have to give up his second-place spot on the grid and could be impacted by the change.

Chris Buescher moved into first place in the NASCAR XFINITY Series point standings after a fourth-place finish in his Fastenal Ford Mustang in Saturday afternoon’s 250-mile race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

After earning an 18th-place starting position during Saturday morning’s qualifying session, he quickly broke into the top-10 by Lap 17. With less than 30 laps remaining, the team visited pit road for the final time of the day, opting for four tires, fuel and a wedge adjustment. Buescher lined up fifth for the final restart. With eight laps remaining, he passed Paul Menard, moving into fourth. Buescher closed out the day in fourth, moving into first-place in the point standings, sharing the lead with Ty Dillon.-Roush Fenway Racing

Matt Crafton wins the Hyundai Construction Equipment 200, his sixth victory in 340 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races.

This is the No. 88 Fisher Nuts/Menards Toyota Tundra driver's first victory and second top-10 finish in 2015. It is his first victory and eighth top-10 finish in 14 races at Atlanta Motor Speedway. With the victory today, Crafton moved up three spots to second in the 2015 NCWTS Championship standings, 2 points behind leader Tyler Reddick.

Sprint Cup regular Kevin Harvick wins the Hisense 250, his 45th victory in 317 NASCAR XFINITY Series races.

This is the No. 88 Bad Boy Buggies Chevrolet Camaro driver's fourth victory and 11th top-10 finish in 14 NXS races at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This is also Harvick's third consecutive NXS victory at the Hampton, Georgia track. He led a race-high 101 laps of the 163 lap event.

Denny Hamlin has three top-10s in his last four Atlanta races. Starting fourth this weekend, he would like to make that four-for-five.

Hamlin posted the fourth-fastest time in final practice and had the quickest 10-lap average so he has a good shot at doing so. He should be considered one of the favorites this week.
Feb 28 - 4:13 PM

Sprint Cup regular Brad Keselowski wins the Keystone Light Pole Award for the Hyundai Construction Equipment 200 with a lap of 31.314 seconds, 177.045 mph.

This is the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150 driver's second pole in 63 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races. It is his first pole and first top-10 NCWTS start in 2015. This is Keselowski's first pole in four NCWTS races at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Feb 28 - 2:15 PM

Kasey Kahne posted the fastest single lap of qualification behind Kevin Harvick in final practice after the No. 4 blew an engine. Kahne’s top speed was 189.805 mph compared to Harvick’s 191.054 mph.

Kahne is the defending winner of this race and he starts exactly where he did in 2014. Last year, he slipped back into the middle of the pack for a while, but he could be a great choice if he can maintain his spot on Sunday through the first half of the event.
Feb 28 - 1:23 PM

Kevin Harvick blew an engine in Saturday’s practice for the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500. He will be forced to the back of the pack when the team makes an engine change. He will give up his outside pole start. Prior to blowing, Harvick had the fastest single lap of practice at 191.054 mph.

Under normal circumstances that might be a huge deficit, but with Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, and Tony Stewart failing to post a qualification lap, there will be a lot of drivers coming from the back.
