Austin Dillon will pilot a new chassis this week that has not been run in race conditions.

For Dillon a new car on a track where he has a single start provides a fresh beginning. That leaves fantasy owners with little to consider other than his practice times. Wait until final practice and qualification is in the books before deciding on whether to start or park him.

Chris Buescher drove his No. 60 Roush Performance Parts Mustang to a third-place finish Saturday afternoon at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The finish was Buescher’s best finish at Bristol and puts him in a tie for the XFINITY points lead. In just four career XFINITY starts at the half-mile track, he now has one top five and three top-10 finishes. He started the 300-lap race at Bristol from the 14th position and quickly began to advance through the field. Buescher lined up on the top line in fourth for the final restart with just over 10 laps remaining and was able to advance one position, while challenging for second, ultimately crossing the finish line third and tying (with Ty Dillon) for the XFINITY points lead.-Roush Fenway Racing

At 17 years old, making only his seventh K&N Pro Series East start, Kyle Benjamin, driver of the No. 27 Eibach Ford, raced side-by-side with William Byron, driver of the No. 9 Liberty University Chevrolet, with less than 30 laps remaining.

But the pressure didn’t break him. Benjamin was able to hold off Byron on the last restart and went to score his first career win in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East taking the checkered flag in the PittLite 125 Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway. The win was the first in seven career starts in the series and also the third different winner in as many races this season. Benjamin, who is a Roush Fenway development driver, won by 0.910-seconds over Byron who entered the race as the most recent winner in the series at Greenville Pickens last month.

Logano led all 300 laps - a BMS NASCAR XFINITY Series race record. It was also an XFINITY Series record for most laps led in a race. Logano's win was the second straight victory for the No. 22 Ford at Bristol Motor Speedway (Ryan Blaney, 8/22/14).

Kevin Harvick recorded the quickest 10-lap average in the final practice session for the Food City 500 with a speed of 125.934 mph from laps 35 through 44.

Harvick was seventh fastest in terms of single laps in that session, but he has been uniformly strong all weekend. He remains a favorite for Sunday and should keep his current top-10 streak alive at the very least.

Jeff Gordon struggled through most of the weekend at Bristol with only the 13th fastest lap in Friday’s practice session, a qualification speed that landed him 23rd on the grid, and the 15th-fastest speed in Saturday morning’s session. In final practice, he finally jumped to the top of the board with the fourth-fastest single lap of speed at 126.420 mph.

Gordon’s time in final practice was 15.178 seconds and it appears that the race pace is coming back to the No. 24 more than that Gordon is catching the field. He should be able to finish in the top 10, but with such a bad pit stall fantasy owners should not expect much more.
Apr 18 - 12:32 PM

Kurt Busch posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Food City 500. His top speed was 127.554 mph.

Busch was also strong (both fast and quick) in Saturday morning’s session and qualified well. He should be considered one of four or five favorites to win on Sunday.
Apr 18 - 12:27 PM

Kurt Busch posted the second-quickest 10-lap average in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Food City 500. His top speed was 125.158 mph in his first 10 laps on the track. He also had the fourth-fastest single lap of 126.088 during his fourth trip around the track.

Busch has five previous wins at Bristol and would like to visit Victory Lane once more. That will punch his ticket to the Chase and complete his return to racing.
Apr 18 - 11:02 AM

Kevin Harvick posted the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice session for the Food City 500 with a speed of 125.725 mph from laps two through 11.

Harvick also had the second-fastest single lap at 126.395 mph. He qualified fourth and has a great balance of early speed and durability. He is heavily favored to score his first Bristol top-five in the last 13 races on this track. His most recent triumph was a fourth in the 2008 Sharpie 500.

Ryan Newman and the No. 31 team have decided to appeal again the penalty stemming from a tire doctoring issue at Auto Club Speedway. In their first appeal, heard by a three-man panel, their points’ deduction and monetary fines were reduced but the suspension upheld against crew chief Luke Lambert. Final Appeals Officer Bryan Moss will hear their arguments next week.

This will put Lambert back on top of the pit box at Bristol for the Food City 500 Supporting Steve Byrnes and Stand Up to Cancer. Newman qualified 18th for the race.

Kasey Kahne posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Food City 500 Supporting Steve Byrnes and Stand Up to Cancer. His top speed was 126.829 mph.

Kahne rolls off the grid eighth on Sunday. He is putting together a complete weekend and should be one of this week’s best values. He has struggled at times during 2015 and could be overlooked by the competition.
