Sprint Cup driver Scott Riggs misses the show for the Nationwide Series Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

He ran a 42nd fastest qualifying lap in the No. 75. It was not quick enough to make the field for the race.

Martin Truex Jr. posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway. His top speed was 187.696 mph.

Truex enters the weekend with a seven-race streak of top-15s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Only one of these ended in a top-five, but he was one of the dominant points’ earners in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas and could be a great value this week.

The engine on Jimmie Johnson’s car apparently started running backwards about 15 minutes into the second practice session for the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway. He attempted to shut the engine down, but the team has not yet reported if this created a catastrophic issue. The ECU seems to have malfunctioned.

Johnson has experienced several strange occurrences such as his steering wheel coming off in his hands at Phoenix. If Johnson replaces his engine, he will be forced to roll off from the back of the grid regardless of where he qualifies.

Kurt Busch posted the fastest time in Friday’s first practice session for the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway with a top speed of 185.893 mph.

Busch has the longest string of consecutive top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and there is no reason to believe this week will snap that streak. If he fits an appropriate slot on a fantasy player’s roster, he is an easy choice this week.

In a 50-race career on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, Aric Almirola has earned seven top-10s. Three of these were earned at Kansas including eighth-place results in spring 2013 and 2014.

In 2013, Almirola swept the top 10 on this track type with another 10th in the fall. Last year, he earned a pair of 10th-place results at Chicagoland Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway, which has made this a track type on which he should be watched closely.

Brad Keselowski won the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which was his 13th consecutive top-10 finish on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. That turned out to be a pyrrhic victory for the No. 2 team as he saw that streak snapped one month later at Texas Motor Speedway.

Still, the balance is in his favor this week and he should be able to rebound quickly. Most of his results during his long streak were outside the five, however, so he is expected to land somewhere between sixth and 10th in the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway.
May 6 - 12:12 PM

Paul Menard had a four-race, top-20 streak going when he rolled into Texas Motor Speedway a month ago for the Duck Commander 500. He finished that race in 26th.

He should be able to rebound to finish at least 20th because that was only the third time since the beginning of 2015 that he failed to do so. Even with three disappointing results, his average result on this track type in the past 13 races is better than 20th at 19.77.
May 6 - 12:11 PM

One week after leaving Daytona International Speedway where he made an unforced error and crashed, Dale Earnhardt Jr. went to Atlanta Motor Speedway and finished second. Last week at Talladega SuperSpeedway, Earnhardt also spun on his own. This week the series rolls onto the similarly-configured Kansas Speedway.

Junior should have been an easy pick in both restrictor-plate, superspeedway races and wasn’t. He seems to have transferred his luck to this week’s track type because he enters with four consecutive top-10s at Texas Motor Speedway, Atlanta, and Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
May 5 - 9:13 PM

In his last 12 starts on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track, Jamie McMurray has finished 20th or better in 11 races. His outlier was a 21st at Atlanta Motor Speedway this spring and his average finish in that span of race was slightly worse than 14th.

McMurray would have an almost perfect record on this track type if not for an accident in the 2015 Atlanta race. He has not scored a top-five on these courses since 2014, but he ended that season with back-to-back results of third and fifth at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway respectively.

Clint Bowyer will make a return to NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) competition with JR Motorsports (JRM).

Bowyer, a veteran racer and 19-time NASCAR national series winner, will drive JRM’s No. 88 Morton Buildings Chevrolet Camaro at Chicagoland Speedway (Sept. 17). Bowyer, who currently races full-time for HScott Motorsports in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, is named as the ninth driver to pilot JRM’s No. 88 "All-Star" Chevrolet in 2016. He joins Josh Berry, Alex Bowman, Cole Custer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Chase Elliott, Kenny Habul, Kevin Harvick and Regan Smith.

Matt Crafton (#88 IdealDoor/Menards Toyota Tundra) had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in final practice for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Toyota Tundra 250.

The average speed of 174.823 mph was best of the 12 trucks that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. #24 Clint Bowyer, #19 Daniel Hemric, #00 Cole Custer and #4 Christopher Bell are the rest of the top five on this list.
May 5 - 8:13 PM

John Wes Townley (#05 Jive Communications Chevrolet Silverado) led the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session at Kansas Speedway.

He ran a quick lap of 176.980 mph. #23 Spencer Gallagher, #13 Cameron Hayley, #29 Tyler Reddick and #88 Matt Crafton round out the top five of the 32 trucks practicing for the Toyota Tundra 250. Jennifer Jo Cobb in the #10 Chevrolet Silverado was the slowest.
