In 2011, Joey Logano surprised the racing world, and himself, by laying down an impressive qualifying lap at Sonoma and winning his first-career road course pole.

Logano, who never did any road racing until he reached NASCAR, has spent a lot of time testing various cars at Sonoma to get more acclimated to the track. In the 2011 race at Sonoma, he led five laps and finished sixth. He’s scored two top-10 finishes in his four career races at Sonoma. Logano, along with his Shell-Pennzoil Racing Ford team, got ready for the right and left turns of Sonoma Raceway by spending two separate test days at both Road Atlanta and Virginia International Raceway doing road course testing.-Penske Racing

Martin Truex Jr. entered last year’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond with a 10-race streak of sub-10th-place finishes on the short, flat tracks of New Hampshire, Phoenix, Richmond, and Martinsville. Since then, four of his last seven races on this track type ended in top-10s.

Truex also has a little momentum on his side with a 10th-place finish in this year’s Toyota Owners 400 in the most recent short, flat track race.

For most of his career, Carl Edwards was not at his best on short, flat tracks but he has reversed that trend in the past two years to earn two wins and five more top-10s in his last 11 starts at Phoenix, New Hampshire, Richmond, and Martinsville.

In the first practice session for the Camping World RV Sales 301, Edwards expressed displeasure with his No. 99 Ford, however, and he has done a good job of informing fantasy players about his struggles. He should be moved to a mid-range pick to use only after marquee drivers have been exhausted.

In three starts at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond this year Ryan Truex has been extremely consistent with results ranging from 30th to 35th.

In addition to these three races, Truex also finished 35th in last year’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond. Odds are good he will finish in this same range at New Hampshire, so fantasy players should plan accordingly.

Brian Scott leads the first practice session for the Nationwide Series Sta-Green 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The lap of 130.042 mph in the No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro was best of the 38 cars out on the track for this session. Sprint Cup regulars No. 42 Kyle Larson, No. 54 Kyle Busch, No. 22 Brad Keselowski and No. 20 Matt Kenseth are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Carlos Contreras in the No. 23 Chevrolet was the slowest.

Jeff Burton comes to New Hampshire Motor Speedway to start only his second Cup race of 2014. Last year he swept the top 10 with a third in the summer and an eighth in the fall.

Burton is undoubtedly going to be a little rusty after so much time out of the cockpit, but he is a good bet to finish in the mid-teens. This makes him a provisionally good value in games where he is priced correctly.

Josh Wise has a best short, flat track finish of 35th so far this year; it came in the STP 500 at Martinsville.

The No. 98 organization has been the little team that could several times this year, but short, flat tracks are prone to streaks. Wise’s average finish in eight races at New Hampshire, Phoenix, Richmond, and Martinsville last year was 34.5 and that defines his potential for the Camping World RV Sales 301.

When Greg Biffle crashed at the end of the Coke Zero 400 and the team did not have enough time to repair his Ford, he passed the mantle of most consecutive races in which a driver was running at the end to Jeff Gordon. The No. 24 driver’s mark currently stands at 36 consecutive races.

Thirty-six consecutive races is the equivalent of one full season, which is remarkable in its own right. Teams that consistently repair their cars to log a few more laps earn extra points for their fantasy owners.

Jimmie Johnson (No. 48 Chevrolet SS) leads the first practice for the Sprint Cup Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

A lap of 135.313 mph was the quickest of the 43 cars out on the track for the first practice session. No. 42 Kyle Larson, No. 24 Jeff Gordon, No. 1 Jamie McMurray and No. 4 Kevin Harvick are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 33 Morgan Shepherd is the slowest. Johnson also had a 10-lap average speed of 132.750 mph. This was the best of the five cars running at least 10 consecutive laps.

JJ Yeley withdrew the No. 44 from the Camping World RV Sales 301, so BK Racing rolled out a fourth entry for Mike Bliss to fill the field.

The team did the same thing at Kentucky for the Quaker State 400, but they parked early. Look for them to duplicate that effort in the Camping World RV Sales 301.

Chase Elliott and the NAPA team enter the New Hampshire weekend third in the standings, 15 points behind leader Regan Smith, his teammate, and just three points behind second-place Elliott Sadler.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a one-mile oval, which Elliott has made three K&N Pro Series East starts at. His average start there is 10.6 with an average finish of 8.6. He enters the weekend leading the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings with a 37-point advantage over Ty Dillon.-JR Motorsports
