Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap among the rookie class in final practice for the Crown Royal 400 on Saturday. His top speed was 187.013 mph, which placed him eighth on that grid.

Larson was one of this week’s dark horse choices to win his first race at Indy and he has not done anything to cause fantasy owners to rethink that position. Even if he fails to find Victory Lane, he will be a good value if he can achieve a top-10 finish.

For the first time since week two of 2016, Kyle Larson finds himself in Chase contention. This came on as the result of a fifth-place finish in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard. He now has a 10-point advantage over the bubble and Kasey Kahne.

Larson needs more top-10s to stay in contention, but mostly he needs to continue to execute consistency. From Dover International Speedway through Daytona International Speedway he swept the top 15 in six races. He ran well in his last two attempts, but finished 19th at Kentucky Speedway and was 17th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Denny Hamlin finished fourth in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard after starting the day fourth. He was the third Joe Gibbs Racing driver in the top four, which is precisely where the organization started the afternoon.

Hamlin has not been at his best on the 2.5-mile flat tracks than the shorter versions recently—and it appeared he would get bitten again this week after getting a speeding penalty mid-race. Notably, that penalty came at the same time as Jimmie Johnson’s and both recovered to finish in the top five.

Jimmie Johnson overcame a speeding penalty and bad track position late in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard to finish third at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He started the day 13th.

With 10 laps remaining in regulation, Johnson was running 11th. He was the best of the Hendrick Motorsports’ group at the time and it appeared they would fail to place any of their drivers in the top 10 for the second straight year in this race. Johnson’s third-place finish saved the organization’s honor, but it is too soon to know if they will carry this momentum forward to the next flat track race at Pocono Raceway.

Matt Kenseth finished second in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard and was the best in show—following his dominant teammate Kyle Busch across the Indianapolis Motor Speedway finish line.

Kenseth earned a lot of points for his fantasy owners by adding 16 place-differential points to his total after starting 18th. This comes on the heels of a victory last week on the flat track of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This was Kenseth’s fifth top-10 in six flat track races in 2016 and completes a sweep of the top 15 on this track type so far.

Kyle Busch made history at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400. He led the most laps by a winner at 149 and also set a record by winning both the Cup and XFINITY races from the pole.

Equally notable, both of Busch’s wins came on old tires. Busch was simply dominant in the Brickyard 400—reminiscent of Martin Truex Jr.’s victory at Charlotte Motor Speedway this summer in the Coke 600. This was Busch’s second straight win at the track and his fourth top-two finish in the last five races.

Alex Tagliani took the lead on Lap 88 and pulled away late in the NASCAR Pinty's Series caution-filled Alberta Has New Energy 300 Saturday at Edmonton International Raceway to pick up his third win of the season.

The Lachenaie, Quebec native missed the first race of the year in Bowmanville, Ontario, to compete in the Indianapolis 500, but he’s quickly moved up the standings to third – now just 26 points behind leader Andrew Ranger. L.P. Dumoulin continued his recent turnaround with his best showing of the season in second, while Josten’s Rookie of the Year leader Cayden Lapcevich rebounded from an accident to finish third. Jamie Krzysik was fourth with Mark Dilley completing the top five. Ranger finished sixth with Alex Labbe, Kelly Admiraal, Gary Klutt and D.J. Kennington rounding out the top 10.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch won the Lilly Diabetes 250, his 83rd victory in 322 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is his seventh victory and 11th top-10 NXS finish in 2016. He has now won three consecutive races for the second time this season, the first driver to accomplish the feat in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. This is his third victory and fourth top-10 finish in five NXS races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). Justin Allgaier (5th) won the NASCAR XFINITY Series Dash 4 Cash bonus of $100,000. Kevin Harvick (2nd) posted his fourth top-10 finish in four NXS races at IMS. Paul Menard (3rd) posted his fifth top-10 finish in five NXS races at IMS. Brandon Jones (10th) was the highest finishing rookie. Daniel Suarez leads the point standings by 14 points over Elliott Sadler.

Chris Buescher advanced into the second round of qualification for the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard and will roll off the grid Sunday in 22nd.

Buescher will make his first attempt at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and was the third-fastest rookie in qualification. He has scored some respectable runs so far in his rookie season. This June, he recorded one of five top-25s on the other 2.5-mile flat track of Pocono Raceway after starting in the front half of the pack in 18th. He should be considered a potential top-25 finisher again this week.

Joey Logano failed to advance to the final round of qualification and will roll off the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard grid 14th after posting a lap of 183.273 mph.

One would be tempted to say this is not the only factor in a potentially strong run, but after last week’s struggle for Carl Edwards after starting 13th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, fantasy owners have a right to be at least a little nervous. Logano was one of the three slowest drivers who made 10-lap runs and never seemed happy with his Ford.
Jul 23 - 6:54 PM

None of the Hendrick Motorsports drivers advanced into the final round of qualification. Jimmie Johnson had the 13th fastest time, Chase Elliott was 15th best, Jeff Gordon was 21st, while Kasey Kahne failed to make it into the top 24 and starts 26th.

This is significant because Hendrick has been one of the dominant organizations at this track, but with five drivers in the field last year they could not manage to crack the top 10. Discretion says that now is time to leave them in the garage and concentrate on one of the organizations trending up.
Jul 23 - 6:24 PM

Kevin Lacroix (#74 Bumper to Bumper/Total/Go Fast Dodge) is at the top of the speed chart in the final practice leading to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series Alberta Has New Energy 300 at Edmonton International Raceway.

The 69.849 mph lap was the best of the 18 cars out on the track. #1 Joey McColm, #32 Alex Labbe, #27 Andrew Ranger and #53 Noel Dowler are the rest of the top five and #9 Jason Hankewich is the slowest in this final session.
