Jesse Little (No. 97 NASCAR Technical Institute Chevrolet) has six top fives and eight top 10s in 24 career NKNPS East races with a best finish of third on two occasions, most recently at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Va., in June 2013.

Has one top five and two top 10s in three Greenville starts. Best Greenville finish of third was October 2012; has average finish of 8.7 at the track. Was 2013 Sunoco Rookie of the Year for the K&N Pro Series East and finished ninth in championship standings.-NASCAR K&N Pro Series-East

Dale Earnhardt Jr. posted the quickest 10-lap average in the first practice session for the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta. He went 184.691 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

Included in that 10-lap average was the fourth-fastest speed overall, which was recorded on his second lap. Earnhardt seems to have the right balance of speed and durability over the long run that ends up in top-five finishes on the unrestricted, intermediate speedway, but he needs to qualify among the top 10 in order to utilize that speed.

Carl Edwards posted the fastest lap in the first practice session for the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta. His top speed of 192.855 mph was set during his first lap on the track.

Edwards has a long history of success on this track, but Roush-Fenway Racing’s struggles in 2014 have made him a questionable fantasy value. This practice has gone a long way to answering that query and if he remains fast on Saturday, he could become a favorite.

In a press conference prior to the first practice session for the Oral-B USA 500, NASCAR president Mike Helton announced that Tony Stewart will receive a waiver and would be eligible for a Chase berth if he wins one of the final two regular season races.

The waiver is a secondary concern for Stewart this week as he simply looks to return to a sense of normalcy by racing. In his press conference earlier in the day, Stewart was still visibly shaken by the fatal event that led to his three-week hiatus and until he gets inside the car, it is simply too soon for fantasy players to assess his ability to challenge for a top-10 position.

Tony Stewart has decided to return to racing this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia. The Aug. 31 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the 1.54-mile oval will mark Stewart’s first start since Aug. 3 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

Stewart sat out the past three races at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International, Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn and Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway following the tragic accident on Aug. 9 involving Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car feature at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park. At 1 p.m. EDT on Friday in the infield media center at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Stewart will be available to the press, where he will be joined by Stewart-Haas Racing executive vice president Brett Frood.-True Speed Communication

On Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Jeff Gordon is scheduled to make his 750th career Sprint Cup Series start.

Firsts at Atlanta: On March 14, 1992 he won from the pole at AMS to capture his first ever NASCAR victory in what is now known as the Nationwide Series. His first start in NASCAR’s premier series occurred at Atlanta in the 1992 season finale, which also marked Richard Petty’s final race. Gordon also clinched his first Cup Series championship at Atlanta in the final race of 1995. He leads active drivers with five wins, 16 top-five finishes, 26 top-10s and 1,297 laps led in 40 Cup starts at the 1.54-mile track.-Hendrick Motorsports

So far in 2014, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has alternated one top-five on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track with a result outside the top 15 and if the pattern holds, he is due to finish poorly this week.

Atlanta has been contrary to that pattern in the past two years, however. He finished seventh in 2012 and eighth last year, while he has failed to crack the top five since 2008. This week could feature a good, but not great finish for the No. 88.

Joey Logano has scored six consecutive top-12 finishes on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, including a victory in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas.

Logano’s solid performance on this track type outweighs his apparent struggles at Atlanta. Prior to last year, he failed to crack the top 15 a single time in six attempts, but with his new Penske ride he finished second to Kyle Busch in the 2013 Atlanta AdvoCare 500.

After winning his first Atlanta race in his first attempt in 2001 and sweeping the top five that season, Harvick struggled on this track until 2008. Since then, he has earned eight top-15s in the past nine races.

Harvick has earned only one top-five in the past five races, but he should contend for another if he has an error-free weekend. Those have seemingly been hard to come by on many occasions this year, however.

Beginning on Sept. 7, 12 drivers will compete in the five-race (Desafío) battle to decide the 2014 NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series champion.

The top 10 drivers in the championship points standings plus two wild cards -- drivers outside the top 10 who earned a victory during the regular season -- had their points reset to 1000 after the Puebla 240. NASCAR Next alum and current Drive for Diversity pilot with Rev Racing in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Daniel Suárez (No. 3 Telcel Toyota) will be atop the standings when the Desafío kicks off in Chihuahua, Mexico.
