Frank Kimmel has 10 ARCA Racing Series titles (most all-time), 80 career wins (most all-time), well over 11,000 laps led, and so much more.

So when it comes to ARCA, what's left to conquer for Kimmel? "What I focus on is what I've always focused on, and that's the next race. And there's plenty to conquer at the next race, and the one after that. Winning does not get old," Kimmel said. And it just so happens that the next race is Daytona, ARCA's marquee event. Kimmel, despite winning nearly everywhere on tour, is well aware that the "World Center of Racing" is not in his win column. "That's one (Daytona) that's not checked off my resume. We'd love to be able to do that."

So far in 2014 Jimmie Johnson is batting 0.500 in regard to flat track top-10s. His best results have come at Martinsville with a second and a pair of sixths at Phoenix and Pocono.

Johnson’s worst finish on this track type was a 42nd at New Hampshire after the team experimented on low air pressures. He lost two tires early and crashed, which leaves fantasy players wondering just how much the team will gamble until the Chase begins.

Travis Kvapil has been consistent on flat tracks this year, but he has not been particularly strong. In five starts he finished between 33rd and 39th four times. His best effort was a 29th in Pocono.

Kvapil skipped the New Hampshire race two weeks ago so he is also lacking some recent momentum as well. Fantasy players may want to look elsewhere for a dark horse that is more likely to score a top-30.

Austin Dillon is improving on flat tracks and that gives him an opportunity to score back-to-back top-10s for the first time in his career. Last week he finished 10th at Indy.

In his first three flat track races this season, Dillon had 20-something results at Phoenix and Richmond. His last three attempts on this track type ended in a 17th at Pocono, a 14th at New Hampshire, and last week’s 10th. His odds of scoring a second top-10 are less than 50 percent, but he could be a great value with a top-15.

Tony Stewart lost one of his best opportunities to win a race last week in Indy. Complaining of a loose condition, he dropped from sixth on the grid to 17th at the checkers.

Pocono has traditionally been a strong track for him and he has another good chance to win at Watkins Glen International, but fantasy players will have a hard time ignoring the fact that he has not scored a top-five in 15 weeks. He finished fifth in the March running of the Auto Club 400.

Ryan Newman has not only been one of the most consistent drivers at Pocono, he has shown a lot of strength in the past six years. He enters the weekend with a 12-race, top-15 streak on this triangular track of which four were top-fives.

Most importantly, two of his Pocono top-fives came last year and his worst effort in the past four races was a seventh he earned this June. At his salary cap level in most games or in Yahoo!’s Group B, he is one of the best values this week.
Jul 30 - 4:38 PM

Casey Mears finished in the 30s in his last two flat track races after scoring a worst result of 24th in his four previous attempts on this course type.

Mears’ 23rd in the Pocono 400 was not overly strong, but he also has results of 14th at Phoenix and 19th at Richmond to make him a driver to watch. Without momentum on his side following a 38th in the Crown Royal 400, however, he will be of minimal use to fantasy owners this week.

After finishing outside the top 15 in his first three flat track races at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond, Kyle Larson turned his season around with a fifth at Pocono in the June race. He followed that up with a third in New Hampshire and was seventh last week at Indy.

The Camping World RV Sales 301 and Crown Royal 400 top-10s came in the last two weeks and coupled with his Pocono 400 success he has a great opportunity to score three consecutive top-10s for the first time in his career. Rookies are supposed to improve with track time and Larson is the embodiment of that theory.

Kyle Busch finished second in the last two races behind Brad Keselowski at New Hampshire and Jeff Gordon at Indy. He looks to improve by one position at Pocono.

Busch also finished third at Richmond earlier this year, which gives him three top-three finishes in the last four flat track races. He will need to improve from the past three years at Pocono to grab the checkered flag because his last top-five on this track came in 2011. Last year he came close with a sixth in June and an eighth in August.

Brad Keselowski returns to the driver seat of the Discount Tire Ford Mustang this weekend for his seventh "double duty" race weekend of the season.

This one is unusual in that it is a non-companion race weekend, which means that Keselowski will fly almost 4,000 miles to race 650-miles between Pocono and Iowa. In six starts, Keselowski has two NNS victories this season and each of those wins preceded a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory the following day. Thus far this season, Keselowski is the only driver to sweep a NNS/NSCS race weekend.-Team Penske

Crew chief Greg Ives will rejoin Hendrick Motorsports following the 2014 NASCAR season to lead the No. 88 Sprint Cup Series team of driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Ives, 34, was race engineer for Jimmie Johnson’s historic run of five consecutive Sprint Cup championships (2006-2010) with the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports team. He will work alongside Johnson’s crew chief, Chad Knaus, in the shop shared by the Nos. 48 and 88 Chevrolet SS teams. Since his debut as a crew chief for JR Motorsports in 2013, Ives has won five NASCAR Nationwide Series races including three this season with rookie and current points leader Chase Elliott.-Hendrick Motorsports

James Buescher and the No. 99 Ruud team head to Iowa Speedway for their second and final stop of the 2014 season.

Iowa Speedway is a track that Buescher has typically excelled at in the past. He has two previous NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at the 0.875-mile oval and seven NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts including a victory that came in the 2013 season. Buescher and the No. 99 Ruud team are coming off a string of bad finishes, however the team looks to turn their luck around this weekend and attempt to secure RAB Racing their first victory of the 2014 season.-RAB Racing
