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

Regan Smith joins fellow NNS competitors Jeremy Clements, Ryan Reed and Ryan Sieg as drivers to qualify for the first round of the Nationwide Series’ Dash 4 Cash program, beginning this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The highest finisher of the qualified group at New Hampshire will win $100,000 and automatically advance to the next round at Chicagoland, along with the next three highest finishing NNS regulars. The same rules will apply to the next three events at Chicagoland, Indianapolis and Iowa. If the same competitor sweeps the first three events and then wins the Iowa race outright, he is eligible for an additional $600,000, bringing the total payout to $1 million.-JR Motorsports

Todd Szegedy (No. 15 Chevrolet) leads the final practice for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Sunoco 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The 131.788 mph lap was the quickest of the 33 cars out on the track for this last session. No. 44 Bobby Santos, No. 7 Ryan Newman, No. 6 Ron Silk and No. 88 Woody Pitkat are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 01 Melissa Fifield was the slowest.

Joey Logano cut a tire in turn one during the first practice session for the Camping World RV Sales 301 and slammed the wall. He will have to roll out a backup car.

The depth at Penske Racing is such, however, that this does not impact their fantasy outlook. Logano remains a good pick based on his 2014 short track record.

In the past two years, Paul Menard has scored only one top-10 each season on the short, flat tracks of New Hampshire, Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond. His best result was a fifth in last year’s Federated Auto Parts 400 on the three-quarter-mile Virginia short track.

If his pattern holds, Menard has already scored his single top-10 at Martinsville this year when he was 10th in the STP 500. That is also his only top-15 on this track type in the past six attempts and he must be classified as a longshot.

Eddie MacDonald will make his Cup debut this week in the No. 32 Frank Stoddard car, but he is no stranger to this track with more than 20 starts in various major stock car series.

MacDonald has victories in the American Canadian Tour and Grand National East series, but his best finish in the Nationwide or Truck series was a 30th in Trucks. The No. 32 has consistently finished in the 30s this year, so look for MacDonald to score a result in 35th- to 39th-place range.
