Clint Bowyer posted the second fastest lap in the first practice session for the Crown Royal 400 with a speed of 186.070 mph.

That lap placed Bowyer 56/1,000ths of a second behind Matt Kenseth, so he should be considered a challenger for the pole. Twenty percent of the previous Brickyard 400s have been won from the front row.

Matt Kenseth has earned the fourth-most top-10s in the past three years with a total of 61.

That puts him only one top-10 ahead of teammate Denny Hamlin and it illustrates just how strong this organization has been during the past three years. The difference-maker is that Kenseth has one more victory in that timeframe than Hamlin. Kenseth’s best tracks in the past three years have been Dover International Speedway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where he has five apiece. Notably both tracks are a mile in length.

Kyle Larson has never finished worse than 15th at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but more importantly he has improved in all four outings to make this his best track during the past three years with a 6.7.

Larson’s four results on this track have progressed from a 15th, to 13th, fifth, and last year’s runner-up to Jimmie Johnson. During his career, Larson has been slightly better at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Darlington Raceway with a 7.0 in three starts each—and it was a 15th at Homestead in a pre-rookie warm-up that skews his career average ever so slightly. Larson’s best track that hosts more than one race per year is Pocono Raceway, where he also has a perfect record of top-15s. Rotoworld predicts Larson will finish in the top 10 in points this season.

Denny Hamlin has scored 60 top-10s in the past three years, which puts him fifth on this chart.

More than half of those attempts wound up in the top five. Hamlin has 33 results of fifth or better, including six wins. Half of these victories came last year, but he was unable to win during the Chase and that ultimately dropped him out of contention for the Cup.

Two top-fives—including in last year’s finale—and a 13th have contributed to making Homestead-Miami Speedway Jamie McMurray’s best track in terms of three-year averages at 7.7.

Richmond is his best track that hosts more than one race per year with an average of 9.5, and while he has not swept the top 15 on this course, he has come close with a worst of 16th last fall. His spring effort was 13th and that suggest he might be trending downward ever so slightly. Start him in Richmond’s first race unless he seems to seriously struggle in practice, but reserve fall’s judgment until he produces another top-10.

Team owner Shigeaki Hattori confirmed to CATCHFENCE.com and Motorsport.com that Ryan Truex has been signed as the full-time driver of the No. 81 Toyota Tundra for Hattori Racing Enterprises this season, expanding his 15-race schedule from 2016.

Truex joined HRE after running just five NASCAR XFINITY Series events in 2015 for Biagi-DenBeste Racing.

There’s no race in the world that means more to Christopher Bell than the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.

He’s been close to winning a few times. He probably should have gotten that coveted Golden Driller in 2016, but he was too aggressive and spun out while battling lapped traffic. But one year later he was more patient, and his patience paid off. Bell is finally the winner of the Chili Bowl. The Norman, Oklahoma native became the first driver from the state of Oklahoma to win the Chili Bowl since 1994. He climbed out of his Keith Kunz Motorsports machine with tears in his eyes. "Oh my God I just won the Chili Bowl," said Bell. "This races means everything to me. I’ve been sitting in those stands since I was a little kid. For me to be able to win here is a dream come true."
