Halfway through Thursday’s practice for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Clint Bowyer scraped the wall and flattened the right side of his Ford.

The damage did not appear to be major, but it doesn’t take much to hurt one’s car. This is a backup after he sustained damage in last week’s All-star race.

Matt Kenseth snapped a nine-race, top-10 streak on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this spring at Texas Motor Speedway when he finished 16th, but he has been mostly constant on this track type with 12 consecutive results of 16th or better.

All of those races ended with Kenseth on the lead lap and that is what it takes to get a good finish. Only three of his recent results landed in the top five, however, so it is going to be difficult to use him to anchor one’s roster.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has finished in the top 15 in his last six races this season, including last week’s 11th-place finish on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway.
