It shouldn’t be surprising to see Ryan Newman cringe at the mere mention of Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.

There have been times of feast or famine for the Haas Automation driver at the 2.66-mile superspeedway. In 22 races at the largest track on the Sprint Cup circuit, he has 11 finishes of 16th or better, including four top-fives and eight top-10s. It’s the other 11 finishes that have been less than kind to Newman. Those are the results that have played a part in making his average Talladega finish 22.4, which happens to be his worst of the active tracks on the Sprint Cup Series schedule.-True Speed Communication

Cole Whitt will make his first New Hampshire Cup start this week. Fantasy Players will need to determine his fantasy relevance based on performances in other short, flat track races at the Cup level.

Whitt has not been great on the short, flat tracks of Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond with an average finish of 34.4. His best effort of 27th came in the Profit 500k at Phoenix earlier this year, however, and that could bode well for another top-30 finish in the Camping World RV Sales 301.

Eric Goodale (No. 58 GAF Roofing/RBSCorp.com Chevrolet) has a win, a pole and 30 top 10s in 78 career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour starts.

Inherited the NWMT’s active starts streak lead, now at 76 races, when Ed Flemke Jr. did not run the 2014 opener. Ranks eighth in points after five events. His first career victory was earned last time out at Riverhead Raceway. Has four top 10s, an average finish of 15th and a best result of seventh (Sept. 2013) in 11 career New Hampshire Motor Speedway starts.-NWMT

Kurt Busch’s single victory of this season came on a short, flat track. He passed Jimmie Johnson late in the STP 500 to win at Martinsville.

Unfortunately that victory is surrounded by 20-something results on the other two short, flat tracks of Phoenix and Richmond. Busch has been inconsistent for most of 2014, which makes him a difficult driver to pick for this week’s Camping World RV Sales 301 roster.

Doug Coby (No. 2 Dunleavy’s Repair/HEX Performance Chevrolet) the 2012 NWMT champion has 10 wins, four poles and 71 top 10s in 148 career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour starts.

Is the season points leader by seven tallies on Bobby Santos. Won the non-points UNOH Battle At The Beach on the short track at Daytona International Speedway in February and recorded podiums in the first three regular season races, including a win at Stafford Motor Speedway in June. Has two wins (Sept. 2012, July 2013), a pole, 11 top 10s and an average finish of 14th in 21 career starts at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.-NWMT

Kyle Busch failed to win either New Hampshire race last year, but he could not have come any closer with runner-up finishes in both the Camping World RV Sales 301 and Sylvania 300.

Before fantasy players get too excited about his odds this week, however, they should note that he has only one other top-five in his previous 10 New Hampshire races. He should be considered a provisionally good pick pending the outcome of practice and qualification to be started only if he excels in these sessions.

Ben Rhodes (No. 41 Chevrolet) is at the top of the speed chart in the final practice leading to the K&N PS-East Granite State 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH.

He put up a 129.160 mph lap in the final practice. No. 52 Matt Tifft, No. 98 Cameron Hayley, No. 97 Jesse Little and No. 34 Scott Heckert are the rest of the top five and No. 63 John Salemi was the slowest of the 31 cars running in this final session.

The Granite State 100 from New Hampshire Motor Speedway will mark the second time Ronnie Bassett Jr. (No. 04 Toyota) will make a start at the famed 1.05-mile speedway, with his first career start resulting in a 10th-place finish.

In the past six NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races, Bassett Jr. has three top-five finishes and five top-10 finishes dating all the way back to Greenville Pickens Speedway, where he recorded a season-best result of second. He fell from the 8th position to the 10th position in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East driver point standings after a brake failure and a 20th-place finish at Langley Speedway.-Bassett Racing PR
