Ty Dillon tops the speed chart in the Happy Hour practice session for the Nationwide Series Lilly Diabetes 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro driver ran a fast lap of 180.245 mph. No. 2 Brian Scott, No. 54 Kyle Busch, No. 5 Kevin Harvick and No. 20 Matt Kenseth round out the top five of the 42 cars out on the track. The No. 70 driven by Derrike Cope was the slowest in the final practice session.

Kurt Busch has the ninth-best three year average at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a 13.33 in his last six races.

As noted in this week’s Statistically Speaking column, he will move up the grid if he finishes anywhere near the top 10 this week because he has a five-race, top-10 streak going. He is likely to finish in the top 15 and that makes him a provisionally good value.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is on the verge of finishing in the top 10 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. Four of his last five races on this track type ended in results of 16th or better.

Stenhouse came close last week in Kansas Speedway with an 11th-place result. That snapped a three-race streak of finishing in the top 10 this season, so he has two reasons to want to get back to the front.

Danica Patrick has failed to finish two of her last three races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks with an engine failure at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and a crash at Kansas Speedway.

Patrick has been getting increasingly frustrated with her results and that makes her a poor value for fantasy players.

Matt DiBenedetto got off to a strong start on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year with a 28th at Atlanta Motor Speedway and a 26th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but his last two efforts fell into the 30s.

He has been close to the top 30 with a 31st at Texas Motor Speedway and 32nd at Kansas Speedway, but that is not enough to excite a player about his potential as a dark horse.
May 26 - 11:03 PM

Corey LaJoie finished 27th in last week’s GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway, which was his best finish on this track type.

Lajoie has been getting progressively stronger on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in the past few races. He finished 32nd at Texas Motor Speedway, but it will take a few races before he is truly fantasy relevant.

NASCAR handed an L1-level penalty to the No. 24 Camping World Truck Series team of GMS Racing on Thursday for failing the post-race height requirements for the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 on May 19 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

As a result of the infraction, the team loses 10 points in the driver and owner standings and crew chief Kevin Bellicourt is suspended for one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and fined $5,000. Justin Haley drove the No. 24 Chevrolet to a 17th-place finish at Charlotte, and Haley was in 18th place in the driver standings before the penalty. After the penalty, he dropped to 22nd place.-NASCAR.com

Kevin Harvick will lead the Coca-Cola 600 field at Charlotte Motor Speedway to green Sunday night with a speed of 193.424 mph.

Harvick also led the field to green last fall in the Bank of America 500 but a blown engine sent him home 38th. Don’t worry too much though because prior to that he had two wins, three second-place finishes and a seven-race streak of top-10s on this track.

With a speed of 190.346 mph, Jimmie Johnson failed to advance to the second round of qualification for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and will roll off the grid 14th.

Johnson has plenty of room to improve during the race, but unless he looks strong in practice he will be a questionable value. This team has not exactly burned up the track in 2017.
May 25 - 7:58 PM

In relief of Aric Almirola, Regan Smith was the first driver who failed to advance to the second round of qualification and will start 25th in the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Smith felt he had a little more in the bank and that could be good news for fantasy owners looking for a bargain-priced driver. Watch the No. 43 closely in practice.
May 25 - 7:44 PM

Kyle Larson’s Chevrolet failed to clear inspection and as a result he did not make a qualification lap. He will line up at the tail end of the field for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Only he and Corey LaJoie failed to clear inspection this week, so Larson has a lot of cars ahead of him. The good news here is that he is going to make up a ton of place-differential points en route to a top-10 finish.
May 25 - 7:38 PM

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Ryan Blaney, driving the No. 12 Snap-On Ford Mustang, had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the Hisense 4k TV 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 179.673 mph was best of the 19 cars that ran at least 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 2 Austin Dillon, No. 41 Kevin Harvick, No. 18 Christopher Bell and No. 42 Tyler Reddick on the rest of the top five on this list.
