Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch won the Coors Light Pole Award for the 24th Annual CNBC Prime's The Profit 200 with a lap of 28.873 seconds, 131.916 mph.

This is the No. 54 Toyota driver's 30th pole in 258 NASCAR Nationwide Series races, tying Mark Martin for the all-time series pole record. This is his fourth NNS pole and 10th top-10 start in 2013. This is his second pole in eight NNS races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Kasey Kahne posted the 10th-fastest single lap in final practice for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a speed of 173.964 mph.

Not much has been expected from Kahne on unrestricted, intermediate speedways this early in the season, so a top-10 time in Happy Hour is certainly notable. It is unlikely that he will be able to finish that well and will probably lose a few spots from his 14th-place qualification, but he will be a provisionally good value if he finishes in the top 20.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kevin Harvick, driving the No. 98 Hunt Brothers Pizza Ford Mustang, won the Rinnai 250, his 47th victory in 342 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is his first NXS victory and first top-10 finish in 2018. It is his fifth victory and 13th top-10 finish in 17 NXS races at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS). Another Cup regular, Joey Logano (second), posted his sixth top-10 finish in six NXS races at AMS. Pole-sitter Christopher Bell, the highest finishing Rookie of the Year contender, led 12 laps and finished the 163-lap race in third place. Elliott Sadler (fifth) leads the NXS point standings by 4 points over Tyler Reddick (19th).

Denny Hamlin posted the quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a 176.557 mph during his first 10 trip around the track.

Long run speed is a much greater indicator of who will run well on Sunday because times drop off precipitously on old tires. Hamlin struggled just a little in Friday’s qualification and had to take two runs in round one. By the time he got around the final round, he was out of rubber and will start 12th, but he should be considered a threat to finish in the mid-single digits.

Ryan Newman posted the fastest single lap in final practice for Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a speed of 184.868 mph.

We knew Newman had speed because he qualified on the outside pole on Friday—just like he did in 2017. It is difficult to know what kind of durability he had last year, however, because he ran into trouble during the race. This weekend, he had only the 17th fastest, 10-lap average of 172.706 mph and that makes him questionable.
Feb 24 - 1:45 PM

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kyle Busch, driving the No. 4 Cessna Toyota Tundra, won the Pole Award for today's Active Pest Control 200 with a lap of 30.844 seconds, 179.743 mph.

This is his 19th pole in 141 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races. It is his second pole in ten races at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS). He won his first pole at AMS yesterday for Sunday's MENCS race at the track. Matt Crafton (second) posted his second top-10 start of 2018 and his eighth in 17 races at AMS. Noah Gragson (third) posted his second top-10 start at AMS. It is his second in two races this season. Dalton Sargeant (sixth) was the fastest qualifying Rookie of the Year contender.

Young’s Motorsports announced Friday that it will field a second truck in full-time competition for the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season.

"In partnership with Team Dillon, we have put together an exciting schedule for 2018," said team principal, Tyler Young. "The venture will feature both Austin and Ty Dillon, as well as Daniel Hemric and Team Dillon development driver, Tanner Thorson, in the No. 20 GoShare Chevrolet Silverado for a total of 17 races." GoShare connects truck and van owners with businesses and people who need to deliver or move big box items on demand.

Christopher Bell (No. 20 Ruud Toyota) won the Pole Award for this afternoon's Rinnai 250 with a lap of 30.600 seconds, 181.176 mph.

This is his second pole in ten NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races. It is his first pole and first top-10 start in 2018 and his first pole at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS). Cup Series regular Joey Logano (second) posted his second top-10 NXS start of 2018 and his fourth in six NXS races at AMS. John Hunter Nemechek (third) posted his first top-10 start at AMS.

Aric Almirola hopes to be rejuvenated with Stewart-Haas Racing and with his new team, his handicap is in question.

Almirola managed to score one top-10 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track last fall with Richard Petty Motorsports after returning from injury, but that is his only such finish in his last 20 starts on this course type. Considering that he finished only 27th last spring at Atlanta Motor Speedway, fantasy owners’ best bet will be to evaluate him in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 and think about starting him next week at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Feb 24 - 9:20 AM

William Byron scored 22 top-10s last year in the Xfinity series in 34 races; one of these came at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Byron finished seventh in the Rannai 250 after starting second and that makes him a driver to watch in his new Hendrick Motorsports equipment. With only one season to his credit in the second series, the book is still incredibly thin, however, and he should be watched closely in practice.
Feb 24 - 9:19 AM

Kasey Kahne will make his first start on an unrestricted speedway this week with Leavine Family Racing, and for the moment his handicap should reflect both his and the team’s record.

Fortunately, those two are close on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Kahne recorded an average finish of 19.8 last year with Hendrick Motorsports; Leavine Family Racing scored a 22.9 with Michael McDowell behind the wheel, so players can expect a finish of about 20th this week.
Feb 24 - 8:59 AM

Kevin Harvick is all but guaranteed to finish in the top 10 if his record is an indicator. He has finished that well in 11 of his last 12 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Two of those were victories that came at Kansas Speedway in fall 2016 and Texas Motor Speedway last November.

Harvick’s ninth-place finish in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 last year was also his third consecutive top-10 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. No matter how one parses the numbers, he is a good value.
