German Quiroga leads the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

He ran a quick lap of 108.967 mph in the No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra. No. 9 Brennan Newberry, No. 19 Alex Tagliani, No. 20 Gray Gaulding and No. 13 Jeb Burton round out the top five of the 26 trucks practicing for the Chevrolet Silverado 250. Jennifer Jo Cobb in the No. 10 RAM was the slowest.

With a lap of 190.398 mph, Kevin Harvick earned his sixth pole of the season. Starting up front has been a good omen for this driver. Four of his previous five poles this year ended in top-10 finishes, including a victory at Darlington and second-place finishes at Kansas and Michigan.

Harvick will need an error-free race to finish that well again. Last week he won the pole for the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol, but a late-race penalty for speeding on pit road kept him from finishing in the top 10.

Sprint Cup regular Matt Kenseth tops the speed chart in the Happy Hour practice session for the Nationwide Series Great Clips 300 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The No. 20 Toyota Camry driver ran a fast lap of 177.738 mph. No. 3 Ty Dillon, No. 22 Joey Logano, No. 9 Chase Elliott and No. 60 Chris Buescher round out the top five of the 39 cars out on the track. The No. 46 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Carl Long was the slowest in the final practice session. Kenseth also had a 10-lap average speed in both the first practice and the final practice. His 173.188 mph average was the best of three cars running at least 10 consecutive laps in the first session and his 172.807 mph average was the best of 13 cars running 10 consecutive laps in the final practice session.

Chris Buescher leads the first practice session for the Nationwide Series Great Clips 300 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The lap of 177.880 mph in the No. 60 Ford Mustang was best of the 36 cars out on the track for this session. No. 20 Matt Kenseth, No. 3 Ty Dillon, No. 54 Kyle Busch and No. 22 Joey Logano are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. John Jackson in the No. 72 Chevrolet Camaro was the slowest.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. posted the quickest 10-lap average in the first practice session for the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta. He went 184.691 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

Included in that 10-lap average was the fourth-fastest speed overall, which was recorded on his second lap. Earnhardt seems to have the right balance of speed and durability over the long run that ends up in top-five finishes on the unrestricted, intermediate speedway, but he needs to qualify among the top 10 in order to utilize that speed.

Carl Edwards posted the fastest lap in the first practice session for the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta. His top speed of 192.855 mph was set during his first lap on the track.

Edwards has a long history of success on this track, but Roush-Fenway Racing’s struggles in 2014 have made him a questionable fantasy value. This practice has gone a long way to answering that query and if he remains fast on Saturday, he could become a favorite.

In a press conference prior to the first practice session for the Oral-B USA 500, NASCAR president Mike Helton announced that Tony Stewart will receive a waiver and would be eligible for a Chase berth if he wins one of the final two regular season races.

The waiver is a secondary concern for Stewart this week as he simply looks to return to a sense of normalcy by racing. In his press conference earlier in the day, Stewart was still visibly shaken by the fatal event that led to his three-week hiatus and until he gets inside the car, it is simply too soon for fantasy players to assess his ability to challenge for a top-10 position.

Tony Stewart has decided to return to racing this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia. The Aug. 31 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the 1.54-mile oval will mark Stewart’s first start since Aug. 3 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

Stewart sat out the past three races at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International, Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn and Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway following the tragic accident on Aug. 9 involving Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car feature at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park. At 1 p.m. EDT on Friday in the infield media center at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Stewart will be available to the press, where he will be joined by Stewart-Haas Racing executive vice president Brett Frood.-True Speed Communication

On Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Jeff Gordon is scheduled to make his 750th career Sprint Cup Series start.

Firsts at Atlanta: On March 14, 1992 he won from the pole at AMS to capture his first ever NASCAR victory in what is now known as the Nationwide Series. His first start in NASCAR’s premier series occurred at Atlanta in the 1992 season finale, which also marked Richard Petty’s final race. Gordon also clinched his first Cup Series championship at Atlanta in the final race of 1995. He leads active drivers with five wins, 16 top-five finishes, 26 top-10s and 1,297 laps led in 40 Cup starts at the 1.54-mile track.-Hendrick Motorsports

So far in 2014, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has alternated one top-five on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track with a result outside the top 15 and if the pattern holds, he is due to finish poorly this week.

Atlanta has been contrary to that pattern in the past two years, however. He finished seventh in 2012 and eighth last year, while he has failed to crack the top five since 2008. This week could feature a good, but not great finish for the No. 88.
