Kyle Larson made his first trip to Auto Club Speedway as a young fan, around the age of five, for a race with his family.

This weekend, he will make his first NSCS start at ACS. He has one previous start at ACS in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS), where he started ninth and finished in sixth place. This will be his first NSCS race in his home-state. The Northern California native grew up racing karts and sprint cars throughout California, before taking his talents towards the east coast.-Chip Ganassi Racing

Jamie McMurray should be watched closely on Saturday to evaluate whether he has top-five potential. Last year he swept that spot at Charlotte Motor Speedway after starting 26th in May and 18th in October.

McMurray qualified 22nd for this week’s Coca-Cola 600, which places him in between last year’s pair of qualifications. In fall 2013 he started 25th, however, and could only rise to 19th.

Chase Elliott will make his third NASCAR Cup start at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend in the Coca-Cola 600. He qualified easily on time in 28th.

This is Elliott’s first attempt on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track in a points’ race, but he has looked comfortable so far in practice and during the Sprint Showdown last weekend. He should be considered a favorite to finish in the top 20 at least.

Sam Hornish Jr. qualified 26th for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which has been about average for the No. 9 this year. His last four qualification attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks have been either 26th or 29th.

Hornish finished 24th and 26th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway respectively. Last week at Kansas Speedway he had his best run on this track type with Richard Petty Motorsports: Hornish finished 16th after starting 26th.

Jeff Gordon knows it will be difficult to match the feeling he gets racing after this season, but broadcasting could provide something close to it.

That was among the reasons Gordon decided to pursue broadcasting, leading to Thursday’s announcement that he’ll join Mike Joy and Darrell Waltrip in the booth for Fox’s broadcast of NASCAR Sprint Cup events. Gordon has signed a multi-year contract. He replaces Larry McReynolds, who had been in the booth since Fox began broadcasting Cup races in 2001. McReynolds will remain an analyst for the network.

Sprint Cup regular Austin Dillon has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 177.477 mph in the No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro was best of the 13 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 5 Kasey Kahne, No. 6 Darrell Wallace Jr., No. Ryan Reed and No. 62 Brendan Gaughan are the rest of the top five on this list.

Ty Dillon tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

No. 6 Darrell Wallace Jr., No. 62 Brendan Gaughan, No. 33 Austin Dillon and No. 22 Ryan Blaney round out the top-five of the 42 cars out on the track. The No. 74 Dodge driven by Mike Harmon was the slowest in the final practice session.

Darrell Wallace Jr. leads the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The lap of 180.536 mph in the No. 6 Cheez-it Ford Mustang was best of the 40 cars out on the track for this session. No. 33 Austin Dillon, No. 2 Brian Scott, No. 60 Chris Buescher and No. 20 Erik Jones are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Mike Harmon in the No. 74 Dodge was the slowest.

Michael McDowell will make his second start in as many weeks after posting the 25th fastest time in qualification for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

McDowell qualified 31st last week on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway and finished 36th, but the last time he rolled off the grid in this range, he finished 27th at Atlanta from a 24th-place gridding. Fantasy owners willing to roll the dice might find a great fantasy value in the No. 95.
May 21 - 10:20 PM

Jeb Burton, Mike Bliss, Travis Kvapil, Brendan Gaughan, and Jeff Green failed to find enough speed to make the Coca-Cola 600 and will have to watch from the pits Sunday night.

Make certain these drivers are not on your roster, but keep an eye on them for future races because they become greater bargains each time they fail to qualify.
May 21 - 10:00 PM

Greg Biffle earned his season-best starting position in qualification for the Coca-Cola 600. He posted the fourth fastest time and rolls off the grid from the outside of the second row.

This is the second consecutive week Biffle earned a season-best starting position. Last week he started seventh at Kansas Speedway in the SpongeBob SquarePants 400 and earned his best result on an unrestricted, intermediate speedway. With renewed confidence, he could finish better than 12th this week and earn his second top-10 of 2015.
May 21 - 9:45 PM

Matt Kenseth posted a lap of 194.252 mph in the final round of qualification and will lead the field to green Sunday night for the Coke 600. This is his first career pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Kenseth started on the outside of the front row for the 2011 Bank of America 500 and he won that event. A couple of third-place starts in 2005 and 2013 have not been as efficient, however, with results of 37th and 15th respectively.
