Juan Pablo Montoya was at the top of the speed chart in the Happy Hour practice leading to the Sprint Cup Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

The No. 42 Chevrolet SS driver put up a 177.070 mph lap in the final practice. No. 17 Ricky Stenhouse Jr., No. 99 Carl Edwards, No. 31 Jeff Burton and No. 78 Kurt Busch were the rest of the top five and No. 36 J.J. Yeley was the slowest of the 42 cars running in this session.

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.

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.

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.
