Darrell Wallace Jr. is the top rookie finisher in the Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway.

The No. 54 truck driver started 17th and finished seventh. This was ahead of the rest of the 2013 Rookie of the Year contenders. Wallace is currently ninth in the 2013 Camping World Truck Series point standings.

Kurt Busch qualified third for Saturday night’s Toyota Owners 400, which is his second-best qualification effort ever at Richmond International Raceway.

Busch qualified Barney Visser’s No. 78 second in the fall 2013 race. That was a great omen for the beleaguered driver at the time because he also finished second in the race. His 10-lap averages this week were not strong enough to make him a favorite for a top-five, but fantasy owners do not want to count against him.

Chase Elliott advanced to the second round of qualification easily and will start 16th in his second career Cup attempt at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday.

Richmond is an easier track to run than Martinsville and Elliott has plenty of experience on the 0.750-miler. He will finish much better Saturday night than three weeks ago at Martinsville and that will improve his confidence level. If he fits a niche, he will be a great fantasy value.

Sprint Cup Series regular Denny Hamlin (No. 11 Toyota Camry) won the ToyotaCare 250, his 12th victory in 147 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is the No. 20 Hisense Toyota driver's first NXS victory and third top-10 finish in 2015. It is his third victory and 10th top-10 finish in 14 NXS races at Richmond International Raceway. This victory was the 100th win for Toyota in the NXS. Hamlin started on the pole and led 248 laps of the 250 lap event.

Kyle Larson advanced to the round of 12 for the seventh time in eight races this season. The only driver who has more top-12 starts is Keselowski who has been perfect in that regard.

Larson often uses these strong starts as a catalyst to finish well and it is only a matter of time before the No. 42 begins recording top-10 finishes in more than 50 percent of his starts. Climb on the bandwagon now.

Danica Patrick struggled most of Friday afternoon on a track type that has been kind to her in the last two starts. She earned back-to-back top-10s at Martinsville Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway, but will need to adjust her Chevrolet all night to collect a third straight triumph at Richmond International Raceway.

This was a similar pattern to what she faced at Bristol, but the team got the car working right at the end of the race. Attrition among some key players in the Food City 500 did not hurt either, and she cannot count on that at Richmond.

Jimmie Johnson simply could not find speed when he needed it and will roll off the grid 36th on Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. This is the third time this season that he failed to advance to the round of 24.

Before fantasy players write him off, however, they should note that his other two poor qualification efforts ended in a second at Bristol Motor Speedway after starting 28th and a victory at Atlanta from 37th.

Denny Hamlin will line up on the outside of the front row next to Joey Logano for the Toyota Owners 400. It is his first front row start at Richmond since he won the pole for the 2008 Crown Royal 400.

Hamlin has two front row starts to his credit and they are both poles. His best result after starting that well was 15th in his rookie season of 2006, but on the heels of a strong Martinsville run three weeks ago he has the confidence to win a second straight Virginia race.

Joey Logano posted a lap of 127.071 mph and won the pole for Saturday night’s Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway. This is his 11th career pole.

This is Logano’s third pole of the season - the most of all drivers - and that has been a precursor to strong runs all year. He led the field to green at Atlanta in March before finishing fourth and came home third at Martinsville after posting the fastest lap in time trials on that flat bullring.

Sprint Cup regular Denny Hamlin (No. 11 Toyota Camry) won the Coors Light Pole Award for the ToyotaCare 250 with a lap of 21.762 seconds, 124.069 mph.

This is the No. 20 Hisense Toyota driver's 17th pole in 147 NASCAR XFINITY Series races. This is his first pole and third top-10 NXS start in 2015 and his third pole in 14 NXS races at Richmond (VA) International Raceway.
Apr 24 - 5:13 PM

Carl Edwards posted the second-quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Toyota Owners 400. His top speed was 122.181 mph during his first 10 laps on track.

Speed has not been an issue for Edwards all season. He has put himself in dangerous spots by trying too hard to establish the No. 19 as a car to beat. Unfortunately, that intangible is not one that can be factored into a handicapping formula.
Apr 24 - 4:19 PM

AJ Allmendinger was notably strong in the final practice session for the Toyota Owners 400. He posted the third-quickest speed among 32 drivers in final practice at 122.139 mph from laps two through 11.

Allmendinger started the season high in the points until a couple of misfortunate races derailed his effort. This could put him back on track to climb into the top 16 once more, but starting him does not come without risk.
