Brian Vickers posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the AAA 500 at Texas. His top speed was 199.218 mph.

The speeds were rising quickly in the closing laps, so fantasy owners should not be surprised to see even faster times in Friday night’s qualification session. Any of the top five should be considered a favorite to score the pole. Behind Vickers, Kevin Harvick, Tony Stewart, Martin Truex Jr., and Jeff Gordon rounded out the top five.

Chris Buescher leads the first practice session for the Nationwide Series O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.

The AAA 500 should be one of Greg Biffle’s best opportunities to score a late-year top-five and be one of the best fantasy values in nearly every game. In his last 12 attempts on this track, his worst finish was a 12th and his best was a victory in spring 2012.

Nearly 60 percent of those starts ended in top-fives and his average since fall 2008 has been a respectable sixth. He has struggled off and on this year and might fly under most fantasy players’ radar screens, which makes him one of this week’s best differentiators.

In nine races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year, Kasey Kahne has earned eight top-15s. Five of these were top-10s, but he barely missed that mark at Texas this spring and finished 11th in the Duck Commander 500.

Eleventh is precisely where Kahne finished in last spring’s Texas race, but he rebounded to finish fifth in the fall. Watch him closely in practice to see if he might show the same signs of improvement this week.

For the second time in the Chase, Brad Keselowski is basically in a must-win situation if he wants to advance to the final round of the playoffs. If he wins to advance, he will have recorded victories in each of the Chase segments.

Keselowski has three wins on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but in the remaining six events, he has only one other top-10. No one wants to count him out, but he has a steep hill to climb.
