Jeff Gordon was named the 2012 recipient of the National Motorsports Press Association’s Myers Brothers Award.

Named for NASCAR racing pioneers Billy and Bob Myers, the award recognizes individuals and groups which have provided outstanding contributions to the sport of stock car racing. Gordon’s accomplishments are two-fold: his on-track success, which includes four NASCAR Sprint Cup championships and 87 victories; and his charitable activities when not competing. "Off the track, he has raised countless funds for charity through his foundation for pediatric cancer research," said Burt Myers, grandson of Billy Myers, upon presenting the award with brother Jason Myers to Gordon. "He has traveled to Rwanda to aid with health care as well as partnering with an organization to put it on the side of his race car as a drive to end hunger."-NASCAR IMC

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the afternoon test session at Atlanta. His top speed was 188.424 mph, which was posted early in his run. Gordon also posted the quickest 10-lap average in that session with a speed of 185.458 mph during his first 10 laps around the track.

The speeds were uniformly lower in the second session, but they were also tighter. Gordon beat Ryan Newman by only one-thousandth of a second in that session as NASCAR continues to search for parity among teams.

Kevin Harvick posted the quickest 10-lap average in the Thursday morning test session at Atlanta. He recorded a speed of 183.342 mph from his ninth through 18th laps.

Only four other drivers made long runs in the session, but two of them are among the weekly contenders. Harvick bettered Matt Kenseth (182.827 mph), Brett Moffitt (182.606), and Clint Bowyer (182.173).

Jamie McMurray posted the fastest single lap in Thursday morning’s test at Atlanta. His top speed was 191.549 mph, which was more than 1.3 mphs faster than teammate Kyle Larson who was second in that session.

With individual testing banned by NASCAR, these pre-weekend sessions give teams a chance to evaluate and become comfortable with the new aerodynamic package.

Casey Mears earned eight results in the 20s during last year’s 10 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. The only time he failed to finish in that range was during the last two races; he was 31st at Charlotte and 18th at Texas.

His average finish on this track type was 25.1, which is about where fantasy owners can expect him to run again this week. If he fits a niche on a fantasy roster, he should be predictable.

When David Ragan takes the green flag at Atlanta in the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500, he will be in the best equipment of his career since leaving Roush-Fenway Racing; in fact, with Joe Gibbs on the rise, it could be the best he has ever run.

Driving for Roush, he scored 10 top-10s and 22 results of 17th or better in 46 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He is still moderately priced in salary cap games and should be one of the best values of the week. Now is the time to lock him in.

Ron Hornaday Jr. may have only recently returned to the Cup series, but he has been in stock cars and trucks for a long time. If he qualifies for this week’s Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500 it will be his 136th start on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track.

Hornaday has 12 victories in Camping World Truck and ARCA Series races on this track type. Two Truck wins and an ARCA victory came at Atlanta, so he should be considered more than just another dark horse this week.

Landon Cassill was occasionally a good value on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks last year, but he could also be uneven. He failed to qualify in his first attempt at Las Vegas and then had results ranging from 21st to 43rd in the next nine races.

Two of his strongest runs came in the last three races on this track type. He finished 21st at Kansas in the fall and 23rd at Charlotte. His last attempt ended in a DNF and last-place finish, however, so he should be approached with some caution.

Joe Gibbs Racing announced Tuesday that David Ragan will serve as interim driver in place of injured Kyle Busch for the next several weeks beginning this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The team said in a statement that Ragan, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran, will run JGR's No. 18 Toyota as Busch recovers from multiple lower-leg injuries suffered in a crash Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. Ragan, 29, drove the Front Row Motorsports' No. 34 Ford in Sunday's Daytona 500 and has competed in the last three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series seasons, bringing the Statesville, North Carolina-based team its only premier series victory in May 2013 at Talladega Superspeedway.
