Chase Elliott was the second best non playoff driver in the Coke 400 at Homestead Miami Speedway. After not advancing to the final stage of qualifying Elliott started back in 18th and moved forward 13 spots to capture his sixth top-five of the 10 race playoffs. Last year in his first attempt at the track the then rookie finished just outside the top 10 in 11th.

Second-place Chase, a nickname the young driver hopes to soon lose will start the 2018 season in the #9, his father's old car number. Elliott will be on a mission to capture a quick win to prove his standing with the sports best drivers.

Kevin Harvick finished fourth in the Coke 400 at Homestead and third in the 2017 Monster Energy Cup Championship. Harvick ran near the front all day but he never could make the pass for the lead. The one time Champion went into the final race with an impressive stat for Homestead, Harvick has led the most laps on 1.5 mile tracks since 2014. In Saturday practice Harvick was the slowest out of the championship contenders.

Harvick locked himself into the final four with a win at Texas, he put himself in position to shine on one of his favorite tracks. In the last three years Harvick has finished in third in 2016, second in 2015, and won it in 2014 at Homestead. This fourth place was his worst since finishing 10th in 2013.

Kyle Larson was the highest finishing non-playoff driver in the Coke 400 at Homestead. For a while it seemed like Larson was going to pull off the spoil as he led 145 laps and captured both stage wins. Larson's third place finish came after four DNF's in a row starting with his playoff ending night at Kansas.

Larson will enter 2018 with a clean slate after being kicked out of the playoffs due to an engine failure at Kansas at the end of the second round. Larson was on a vast majority of fantasy teams to make it all the way to Homestead to fight for the championship and an equally impressive percentage of experts and fantasy players saw him winning the whole thing. The 25-year-old driver has a long future in the sport but will be antsy to capture more wins and have the opportunity to fight for the championship again in 2018.

Kyle Busch found himself watching the championship from his front windshield, as Martin Truex Jr. beat him to the line in the Coke 400 at Homestead by four car lengths. Busch led 43 laps of the race and was made several runs on Truex in the late stages of the race.

While Busch had the fastest car of the playoff contenders for a large portion of the race, he found it hard stay out front for long. Look for Busch, along with the other three playoff drivers that did not walk away with the championship, to enter Daytona with a chip on their shoulders and a lot to prove in 2018.

William Byron added two more superlatives to an already lengthy list – 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series Champion and 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year.

The 19-year old is only the second driver to win the XFINITY Series championship in his rookie season (Chase Elliott, 2014). Following an extraordinary rookie campaign, the NASCAR Next graduate, who finished third, outlasted his Championship 4 competitors Elliott Sadler (eighth), Justin Allgaier (12th) and Daniel Hemric (34th) in the Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway to capture his second NASCAR title. He also won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship in 2015. Byron’s ascent to the top level of the sport will continue in 2018, as Hendrick Motorsports announced that he will drive the iconic No. 24 Chevrolet in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.-NASCAR Media

Cole Custer (No. 00 Haas Automation Ford) won the Ford EcoBoost 300, his first victory in 38 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is his first 19th top-10 finish in 2017 and first top-10 finish in two races at Homestead-Miami Speedway (HMS). Sam Hornish Jr. (second) posted his fourth top-10 finish in seven races at HMS. It is his third top-10 finish in 2017. William Byron (third) posted his first top-10 finish in his first start at HMS. William Byron is the 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series champion. Byron is also the 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year. Chevrolet is the 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series manufacturer's champion.

Kyle Busch posted the quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a speed of 164.681 mph in his first circuits on the track.

Like Martin Truex Jr., he was equally fast in the morning session, so it appears he will be Truex’s main competitor for the championship. His worth to fantasy owners is minimized by the risks they will have to take among bargain drivers, however.
Nov 18 - 3:24 PM

Martin Truex Jr. posted the fastest single lap in Happy Hour for the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a speed of 171.195 mph. He was also second-quickest in terms of 10-lap averages with a speed of 164.460 during his first 10 laps on track.

Truex was mong the top three in both fastest and quickest laps in the morning as well. He has dominated 1.5-mile tracks albeit the doglegged version and not this true oval. It is difficult to not thing of him as athe favorite to win the championship in light of his domination in 2017.
Nov 18 - 3:13 PM

Tyler Reddick (No. 42 BBR/Granger Smith Chevrolet Camaro), making his first start at Homestead-Miami Speedway (HMS), won the Coors Light Pole Award for the Ford EcoBoost 300 with a lap of 165.624 mph.

This is his second pole in 18 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races. It is his second pole and ninth top-10 start in 2017. Cole Custer (second), the fastest qualifying Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender, posted his 24th top-10 start of 2017 and his first in two races at HMS. Camping World Truck Series regular Christopher Bell (third) posted his first top-10 NXS start at HMS. It is his seventh in eight NXS races this season.

Kevin Harvick posted both the slowest top speed and worst 10-lap average among the Championship contenders in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

His average speed of 163.888 mph put him sixth on that chart behind Martin Truex Jr. (second), Brad Keselowski (third), and Kyle Busch (fourth). His fastest lap of 17th was marginally slower than that of Busch’s, but the cumulative effect does not bode well for his title hopes.
Nov 18 - 1:35 PM

Kurt Busch posted only the 22nd-quickest time in Saturday morning’s practice for the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a 160.855 elapsed speed.

Only 24 drivers made 10-lap runs, so he was slower than everyone except Ryan Newman and Chris Buescher. Fantasy players will want to look for their differentiator someplace else.
