Jimmie Johnson won the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, his record-breaking fourth victory in 12 starts in the annual non-points race.

He broke a tie for the all-time all-star race wins lead with Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt. Johnson also won the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race in 2003, 2006 and 2012. He becomes the second driver to win back-to-back all-star races. The first was Davey Allison in 1991-92. This is Johnson’s eighth top-five finish in the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.

When Tony Stewart failed to clear inspection Friday afternoon, it forced him to take a position based on owner points. He will roll off the grid 39th, which is the worst he has ever started at Atlanta.

His next-worst start came in 2001 when he rolled off the grid 35th. He blew an engine five laps from the end and finished 27th. Stewart also finished second once after starting 32nd, so all hope is not lost.

Sprint Cup regular Brad Keselowski is fastest in Final Practice for the Camping World Truck Series Hyundai Construction Equipment 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

At 178.695 mph in the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150, he was the fastest of the 31 trucks out on the track for the final practice. No. 4 Erik Jones, No. 13 Cameron Hayley, No. 51 Daniel Suarez and No. 05 John Wes Townley are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 6 Norm Benning was the slowest.

Dozens of drivers failed NASCAR inspection in their first attempt and were forced to go around and try again. Thirteen of them failed to make a time trial lap, including such big names as Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart, and Jeff Gordon.

Regan Smith, Jeb Burton, Cole Whitt, Landon Cassill, and Alex Bowman were also affected, but they had enough owner points from last year to make the show. The same was not true for Reed Sorenson, Mike Wallace, Matt DiBenedetto, and Michael Annett. They are the four drivers who will miss the show.

One week after winning the Daytona 500, Joey Logano posted a lap of 194.683 mph and earned his first career pole at Atlanta. His speed was more than a tenth of a second faster than second-place Kevin Harvick.

Logano’s best start prior to today was ninth in 2012. He finished 18th that weekend. In 2013 he finished second after posting his second-best time trial effort of 11th. Logano has proven that momentum is a powerful force in NASCAR.

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in Friday’s practice session. His top speed was 192.989 mph. He also had the fastest 10-lap average at 185.537 mph among three drivers who ran long runs.

Larson finished in the top 10 on this track last year as a rookie. He should be considered a favorite to back that up with another top-10.

Sprint Cup regular Joey Logano tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Hisense 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He also led the first practice earlier today.

The No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang driver ran a fast lap of 182.105 mph. No. 62 Brendan Gaughan, No. 33 Paul Menard, No. 18 Daniel Suarez and No. 9 Chase Elliott round out the top five of the 40 cars out on the track. The No. 89 Chevrolet driven by Morgan Shepherd was the slowest in the final practice session. Logano also had a 10-lap average speed of 179.306 mph. This was the best of the 13 cars running at least 10 consecutive laps in this session.

Sprint Cup Series regular Joey Logano leads the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Hisense 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The lap of 182.807 mph in the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang was best of the 27 cars out on the track for this session. No. 3 Ty Dillon, No. 88 Kevin Harvick, No. 20 Matt Kenseth and No. 54 Erik Jones are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Joey Gase in the No. 52 Chevrolet Camaro was the slowest.

AJ Allmendinger hopes to pick up where he left off last year. His last three attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks ended in a sweep of the top 15 and lead lap finishes.

Once Allmendinger won the road course race at Watkins Glen, his confidence seemed to improve and that had an impact on other track types as well. Allmendinger will almost certainly fly under the radar screen for most players, which could make him extremely useful.

In 10 previous attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in the Cup series, Michael Annett has finished better than he started eight times.

At Atlanta last year he advanced from 25th to 21st, but his last attempt at Texas showed even better improvement. He qualified 33rd and finished 22. This makes him a decent value in contests that award place differential points like the NASCAR.com Fantasy Live game.

Justin Allgaier progressively improved last year on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and he looks to continue in 2015. It took nine attempts before he finished on the lead lap, but once he did he went the full distance at both Charlotte and Texas.

Allgaier was a good fantasy value on both tracks with a 15th in the Bank of America 500 and a 20th in the AAA Texas 500. He should be considered one of the top dark horses this week.
