The Kobalt Tools 400 will mark Tony Stewart’s 15th Sprint Cup start at Las Vegas MotorSpeedway.

He has one win, four top-threes, six top-fives, nine top-10s and has led a total of 482 laps in his 14 career Sprint Cup starts at LVMS. His average start is 14.2, his average finish is 12.9 and he has a lap completion rate of 93.3 percent. Red 14 hit in Las Vegas last year, but where it mattered most wasn’t on a roulette table at the MGM Grand. Rather, it was at Vegas’ 1.5-mile oval where in his 14th Sprint Cup start at Las Vegas, Stewart drove his No. 14 Chevrolet to victory. He led three times for a race-high 127 laps.-True Speed Communication

Charlotte Motor Speedway will be the fourth of 12 XFINITY Series races for Ty Majeski in the No. 60 Ford Mustang for 2018.

Majeski on Charlotte: "I am very excited to be racing at Charlotte for the first time. It is in everyone’s back yard and everyone wants to win. It’s one of the toughest 1.5-mile tracks on the schedule, so it was big for me to have been able to test there. We felt like the test went pretty well. There were some positives taken away from it for sure, but we have some ideas to be even better this race weekend." Recapping Dover: In his first ever start at Dover, Majeski qualified ninth and led laps at the "Monster Mile" before a mechanical issue sent him to the garage for repairs. The rookie returned to the track learning and logging laps before an incident late in the race ended his day early, resulting in a 34th-place finish in his No. 60 Ford.-Roush Fenway Racing

Fury Race Cars, which is making its NASCAR Xfinity Series debut this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, will field Kaz Grala (No. 61 NETTTS Ford Mustang) for at least the next four consecutive events.

The No. 61 team is staffed by many of Grala’s crew members from his first 10 events of the season; Shane Wilson will serve as crew chief, while Grala’s previous spotter (Chris Lambert), engineer, car chief and two mechanics will join him in this new venture. This will be Grala’s first NXS start at Charlotte and fourth mile-and-a-half race in the series. He has one previous start at the Charlotte quad-oval in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Despite his limited experience on the intermediate track, Grala has won two championships on the 0.20-mile oval (Summer Shootout in Bandoleros, Winter Heat in Legend Cars).-Fury Race Cars

NASCAR Next alumnus Dylan Lupton (No. 28 Fatal Clothing Ford Mustang) will make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sat., May 26.

The 24-year-old Lupton will make his 34th career NASCAR Xfinity Series start and eighth on a mile-and-a-half intermediate track. Lupton’s best finish on an intermediate track came last fall at Kansas Speedway where he finished 16th after starting 19th. Earlier this year, Lupton finished 17th at Texas Motor Speedway after starting 24th. JGL Racing has 14 previous Charlotte starts with a best finish of 17th (Corey LaJoie in October of 2017).-JGL

Using fuel mileage, Austin Dillon won last year’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but that is his only top-10 in the past two years on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

If that win is removed from his record, Dillon has an average finish of 19.5 on this track type since the beginning of the 2017 season. Eight of his 13 races ended between 13th and 17th, however, so he may fit a niche if he is rightly-priced.

Corey LaJoie has been strong recently, but only when he does not experience engine-related issues.

LaJoie has made five starts this year. He blew an engine three times, but when he was running at the end, he scored a pair of top-25s. One of these came last week in the KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas Speedway with a 24th. Fantasy players simply cannot trust that he will get to the end of 600 miles this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, however.

Jimmie Johnson has not scored a top-10 finish in his last six attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, dating back to an 11th last fall at Kansas Speedway.

If Johnson kept narrowly missing the top 10, that would be one thing, but he has three results outside the top 25 and an average of 21.8 in those six races. Until he rebounds for several consecutive weeks, he is contraindicated on fantasy rosters.
May 23 - 12:57 PM

Paul Menard has been uneven on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year with two top-10s countered by a pair of results outside the top 15.

In general, the No. 21 team is performing well and Menard is a better value than he was last year. Last year’s driver Ryan Blaney was able to smooth out the peaks and valleys a little better, however. Menard’s inconsistency makes him a much more difficult pick for one’s fantasy roster.
May 23 - 12:45 PM

Reed Sorenson has made two previous starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year with a best of 27th last week at Kansas Speedway.

Sorenson’s other attempt on the 1.5-milers this year ended in a 31st at Texas Motor Speedway, so it would seem to be a good bet that he could finish in the range of about 30th this week. With a full field expected, he could be a decent value if he qualifies 35th or worse and earns place-differential points to go along with his race finish points.
May 23 - 12:38 PM

Niece Motorsports development driver Max McLaughlin will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut later this summer at Eldora Speedway, piloting the No. 38 Chevrolet Silverado.

In 2017, McLaughlin finished ninth in the Super DirtCar Series points and won the 2017 Most Popular Driver award. He set five fast times and broke four track records in his sophomore season on tour. He also picked up wins at both Fulton and Brewerton Speedways as well as a Triple 30 Feature at Super Dirt Week. In addition to his partial Truck Series schedule this year, McLaughlin continues to run fulltime in Big Block Modifieds for HBR team owner Al Heinke.
May 23 - 11:56 AM

Kurt Busch had a even-race streak of top-10 finishes at Charlotte Motor Speedway come to an end last fall in the Bank of America 500 when he slipped to 22nd.

Busch’s average finish in the seven previous races was 7.0. Even with that poor result last fall, he now has eight top-15s in the last 10 races at Charlotte. The down side of starting him is not very great, but he must be rightly-priced to be a good value. Only two of his last 10 attempts ended in top-fives.
