Kevin Harvick posted the quickest 10-lap average in the Thursday morning test session at Atlanta. He recorded a speed of 183.342 mph from his ninth through 18th laps.

Only four other drivers made long runs in the session, but two of them are among the weekly contenders. Harvick bettered Matt Kenseth (182.827 mph), Brett Moffitt (182.606), and Clint Bowyer (182.173).

Jamie McMurray posted the fastest single lap in Thursday morning’s test at Atlanta. His top speed was 191.549 mph, which was more than 1.3 mphs faster than teammate Kyle Larson who was second in that session.

With individual testing banned by NASCAR, these pre-weekend sessions give teams a chance to evaluate and become comfortable with the new aerodynamic package.

Casey Mears earned eight results in the 20s during last year’s 10 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. The only time he failed to finish in that range was during the last two races; he was 31st at Charlotte and 18th at Texas.

His average finish on this track type was 25.1, which is about where fantasy owners can expect him to run again this week. If he fits a niche on a fantasy roster, he should be predictable.

When David Ragan takes the green flag at Atlanta in the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500, he will be in the best equipment of his career since leaving Roush-Fenway Racing; in fact, with Joe Gibbs on the rise, it could be the best he has ever run.

Driving for Roush, he scored 10 top-10s and 22 results of 17th or better in 46 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He is still moderately priced in salary cap games and should be one of the best values of the week. Now is the time to lock him in.

Ron Hornaday Jr. may have only recently returned to the Cup series, but he has been in stock cars and trucks for a long time. If he qualifies for this week’s Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500 it will be his 136th start on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track.

Hornaday has 12 victories in Camping World Truck and ARCA Series races on this track type. Two Truck wins and an ARCA victory came at Atlanta, so he should be considered more than just another dark horse this week.

Landon Cassill was occasionally a good value on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks last year, but he could also be uneven. He failed to qualify in his first attempt at Las Vegas and then had results ranging from 21st to 43rd in the next nine races.

Two of his strongest runs came in the last three races on this track type. He finished 21st at Kansas in the fall and 23rd at Charlotte. His last attempt ended in a DNF and last-place finish, however, so he should be approached with some caution.

Joe Gibbs Racing announced Tuesday that David Ragan will serve as interim driver in place of injured Kyle Busch for the next several weeks beginning this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The team said in a statement that Ragan, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran, will run JGR's No. 18 Toyota as Busch recovers from multiple lower-leg injuries suffered in a crash Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. Ragan, 29, drove the Front Row Motorsports' No. 34 Ford in Sunday's Daytona 500 and has competed in the last three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series seasons, bringing the Statesville, North Carolina-based team its only premier series victory in May 2013 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Stewart-Haas Racing has named Regan Smith interim driver of its No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet SS for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race weekend Feb. 26-March 1 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The race on Sunday will be Smith’s seventh Sprint Cup start at Atlanta. His most recent Sprint Cup start at the 1.54-mile oval was on Sept. 2, 2012 when he finished 14th. Atlanta will be Smith’s second race in the No. 41 car. He drove the Haas Automation Chevrolet to a 16th-place finish last Sunday in the Daytona 500. Smith already had some history with Stewart-Haas Racing prior to Daytona. He subbed for Tony Stewart in the team’s No. 14 car last August at Watkins Glen (N.Y.)
