Eddy Wood hope for clear skies this week so his family team can reach a milestone 1,400 Sprint Cup starts, dating back to Glen Wood’s first appearance in NASCAR’s elite division, at Martinsville Speedway on May 17, 1953, driving a 1953 Lincoln.

If it rains and qualifying is cancelled, the team would miss the race. Competing on a limited schedule, they made fewer attempts to qualify for races this season than the other teams not otherwise locked into the starting field. Charlotte would appropriate, as the team got its first superspeedway victory there in the 1960 National 400 with Speedy Thompson at the wheel. Crew chief Donnie Wingo also is hoping the weather works out in the team’s favor, as he and driver Trevor Bayne are looking forward to getting the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion back into Sprint Cup action.-Wood Brothers Racing

Alex Tagliani, who hails from nearby Lachenaie, Quebec, posted a fast lap of 96.342 seconds (78.956 mph) Saturday at Circuit ICAR to capture his sixth career Canadian Tire Series pole.

It’s Tagliani’s second pole in three visits to the 2.113-mile airport course. He was the inaugural event’s polesitter in 2011. The Circuit ICAR winner in each of the previous three years, Andrew Ranger qualified on the outside pole for the Ecko Unlimited 100. The Roxton Pond, Quebec, native’s fastest lap Saturday was 96.372 seconds (78.932 mph). On Sunday he will look to extend his own series record for consecutive wins at a track.

Thunderstorms and rain forced the cancelation of the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. The lineup for Sunday night’s race will be set by speed in the first practice session.

This will put Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the pole with Austin Dillon to his outside. Qualification at Daytona is not terribly important as a contributing factor to the handicap, so this does not alter the odds whatsoever.
Jul 4 - 5:57 PM

Daniel Suarez won the Coors Light Pole Award for the Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway with a lap of 49.929 seconds, 180.256 mph.

This is the No. 18 ARRIS Toyota Camry driver's first pole in 17 NASCAR XFINITY Series races. It is his first 11th top-10 start in 2015. Suarez, from Monterrey, Mexico, has become the second Mexican driver in NASCAR XFINITY Series history to post a Coors Light pole joining Jorge Goeters (Mexico, 2005).
Jul 4 - 4:37 PM

Scott Heckert (No. 34 Project Lifesaver Chevrolet) is at the top of the speed chart in the final practice leading to the K&N PS-East NASCAR NAPA 150 at Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway.

He put up a 14.256 second lap in the final practice. No. 5 J.J. Haley, No. 98 Rico Abeu, No. 51 Dalton Sargeant and No. 30 Grant Quinlan are the rest of the top five and No. 47 Mike Senica was the slowest of the 22 cars running in this final session.
Jul 4 - 3:57 PM

Dillon Bassett (No. 44 Bassett Gutters Ford) led the first practice for the K&N PS-East NASCAR NAPA 150 at Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway.

A lap of 14.486 seconds was the quickest of the 22 cars out on the track for the first practice session. No. 98 Rico Abreu, No. 30 Grant Quinlan, No. 5 J.J. Haley and No. 3 Kaz Grala are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 47 Mike Senica was the slowest.
Jul 4 - 2:56 PM

Kevin Lacroix had an eventful morning prior to the fifth annual Ecko Unlimited 100 at Circuit ICAR.

The 26-year-old rookie from Saint-Eustache, Quebec, posted the fastest time in first practice for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1. And then his No. 74 Lacroix Tuning/Excellence Chrysler Dodge completed just one lap in the second session after reporting the left rear axle cap had come off. Lacroix's lap of 1 minute, 37.331 seconds (78.154 mph) around the 2.113-mile, 14-turn road course in the first 30-minute run stood up as the fastest time overall.
Jul 4 - 2:14 PM

Danica Patrick posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway with a speed of 198.133 mph. Her three teammates, Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Tony Stewart were all lined up behind her.

The Stewart-Haas Racing teammates were drafting with Hendrick Motorsports as they caught another pack, which underscores how important drafting is on restrictor-plate, superspeedways. Patrick is more than capable of staying out of trouble and finishing in the top 10 this week.
Jul 3 - 6:03 PM

In addition to rolling out a backup car, Greg Biffle was forced to change his engine for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. No matter where he qualifies, he will have to start from the back of the pack.

Starting position is meaningless on plate tracks and Biffle’s ability to get to the front is not in question. He has not finished among the top 15 in his last seven Coke Zero 400 attempts, however, and cannot be considered a favorite this week.
Jul 3 - 5:59 PM

Jamie McMurray is one of several drivers who will roll out a backup for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. He was involved in the nine-race crash that occurred 10 minutes into in the first session.

Midway through final practice McMurray was about midway down the speed chart. Raw speed is not particularly important in pack racing, but the No. 1 team has to feel better after shaking the car down.
Jul 3 - 5:48 PM

Ty Dillon tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway.

The No. 3 Yuengling America's Oldest Brewery Chevrolet Camaro driver ran a fast lap of 179.978 mph. No. 13 Mark Thompson, No. 40 Derek White, No. 22 Joey Logano and No. 26 Timmy Hill round out the top-five of the 23 cars out on the track. The No. 97 Chevrolet driven by Peyton Sellers was the slowest in the final practice session.
Jul 3 - 5:40 PM

Dale Earnhardt Jr. posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona. His top speed was 202.284 mph.

Speed at Daytona is essentially meaningless since the fastest times are set when a driver runs up on another group. Still, Earnhardt is the plate track Pied Piper and he should be considered a favorite on Sunday.
