Wonder bread will be the primary sponsor of Kurt Busch’s No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Chevrolet during the Oct. 18-20 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.

Inspired by the motion picture Talladega Nights, the colorful paint scheme on Busch’s Chevrolet will have a look similar to the No. 26 Wonder Bread race car in the 2006 movie. The motorsports sponsorship is part of the reintroduction of the Wonder brand, which had been off the market since the bankruptcy of its former owner late last year. Flowers Foods, a leading producer and marketer of packaged bakery foods in the U.S. acquired the Wonder brand in July 2013.-Furniture Row Racing

For the second week, Martin Truex Jr. had the strongest car on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track but he lost the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway due to a strategy call. He was the highest-finishing driver who did not stretch his fuel mileage.

Truex keeps his incredible streak of top-10s alive with 11 such results in 12 races. This was his second top-five on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track after finishing second at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and he continues to be a place-and-hold driver in nearly every game.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was one of four drivers who finished in the top five in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway after gambling on fuel mileage. He finished third after passing Matt Kenseth in the closing laps.

With his Talladega SuperSpeedway victory, he decided to roll the dice and it paid off with a better finish than he would have experienced otherwise. Occasionally gambles pay dividends for fantasy players and this keeps a top-five streak on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks alive for the No. 88

Greg Biffle scored his best result of the season when he crossed under the checkers second in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In pre-race coverage, we predicted this would be his first top-10 on an unrestricted, intermediate speedway and he beat that projection by a significant margin. Several spots were earned because of his fuel mileage gamble, however.

This is Biffle’s first top-five since last August at Pocono Raceway and it signals a general improvement at Roush-Fenway Racing. He still needs to be evaluated on a weekly basis until he strings several top-15s together.

Kyle Weatherman won the ARCA 150 presented by Unique Pretzels at New Jersey Motorsports Park Sunday, leading the final five laps for his career-first ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards win.

He gained the lead from Menards Pole winner Cole Custer on lap 62, then survived a late race re-start in which he put his No. 22 Cunningham Motorsports Dodge into the grass between turns two and three on the 12-turn, 2.25-mile Thunderbolt Raceway course. He somehow managed to keep the lead, however, staying in front of Cunningham Motorsports teammate Tom Hessert and Josh Williams.

Carl Edwards gambled on fuel in NASCAR’s longest race of the season and won the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He beat Greg Biffle by nearly five seconds. Edwards led the first lap and the last one, but only 23 circuits in between.

Edwards has had some strong runs this year, but he has regularly pushed too hard. Now that he has broken into Victory Lane, the floodgates are liable to open wide and he will be a good value in the coming weeks.

Cole Custer won the Menards Pole Award presented by Ansell Saturday afternoon at New Jersey Motorsports Park and will start on the pole for Sunday’s ARCA 150 presented by Unique Pretzels.

Custer is making his ARCA Racing Series debut this weekend in the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet. His qualifying speed was 100.504 mph. Custer, who is both the youngest pole sitter and youngest winner in NASCAR Touring Series history, is driving the same car that Chase Elliott scored two top-five’s with at New Jersey Motorsports Park. He is a JR Motorsports development driver splitting his season among NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, ARCA and the NASCAR K&N Series. The listed team owner on the No. 00 is Wayne Peterson, longtime ARCA car owner.-ARCA Racing

Kyle Larson rounds out the top three in final practice for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in regard to 10-lap average speeds. His time was 184.085 mph, which was set during his first 10 laps on the track just like Kasey Kahne and Denny Hamlin.

Like Hamlin, Larson’s single fastest lap was well down the grid with a speed of 184.491 mph that was only 16th-best. Larson needs a good run this week and will probably get it, but there are safer fantasy options.

Jimmie Johnson posted the second-quickest time in the morning session (of 17 drivers who went that distance) for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a speed of 187.437 mph during his first 10 laps on track. He was fifth quickest of 27 drivers in final practice.

Johnson should be able to record a top-10 finish, but a little more is expected of him at Charlotte. If he fits a niche he should be used, but there is no reason to rearrange a roster just to accommodate the No. 48.

Denny Hamlin posted the second quickest average time in final practice for the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a speed of 184.239 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

Hamlin posted only the 14th fastest time during this practice, however, and he was 13th-fast in the morning session, which indicates he might need a few laps to get up to speed. That could be an issue if there is a late-race restart.

Sprint Cup regular Austin Dillon won the Hisense 300 , his fourth victory in 87 NASCAR XFINITY Series races.

All four of Dillon's victories have been from the pole. This is the No. 33 Rheem Chevrolet driver's second victory and seventh top-10 finish in 2015. It is his first victory and third top-10 finish in five NXS races at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Matt Tifft says his No. 52 Federated Auto Parts Chevrolet can still find more speed.

"That’s the goal," Tifft said after posting the fastest time during the first ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards practice session at New Jersey Motorsports Park Saturday. Tifft led speed charts early on Thunderbolt Raceway with a high speed of 97.609 mph. Robert Mitten made a late surge to finish second, David Levine third, Tom Hessert fourth and Cole Custer fifth in the first practice session. Tifft finished third last year at NJMP. Twenty-two cars made it out for at least one practice lap in the first session Saturday.-ARCA Racing
