Justin Fontaine will turn his first laps at Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Driver Quote: "I’ve never been to Atlanta, but we’re optimistic. My crew chief Darrell (Morrow) and the guys on the Niece Motorsports team have been working hard on preparing our No. 45 Superior Essex Chevrolet, and I think start to finish from practice to qualifying and to the race, we’ll make significant gains so that we can contend for another strong finish." Recapping Daytona: Fontaine turned in a solid performance in his debut at Daytona, earning a 10th-place finish. The finish is the best to-date for Niece Motorsports.

Spencer Davis (No. 51 Rheem Toyota Tundra) finished seventh last weekend at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start.

The Dawsonville, Ga., native considers Atlanta his home track. He is hoping a win at Atlanta will sound the famous siren atop the Dawsonville Pool Room, a tradition started when fellow Dawsonville residents Bill and Chase Elliott win NASCAR events. He will make five NCWTS starts this season for KBM. Four, Daytona, Atlanta, Texas Motor Speedway and Michigan International Speedway will be in the No. 51 Tundra. He will also pilot the No. 4 JBL/SiriusXM Tundra at Las Vegas in March.

Noah Gragson (No. 18 Safelite Autoglass® Toyota Tundra) heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway for stop two on the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule.

In last year’s race at Atlanta, the rookie driver overcame an early spin to post a 14th-place finish in his first mile-and-a-half start for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM). Gragson’s crew chief, Rudy Fugle, called the shots for Christopher Bell’s win in the Truck Series event at Atlanta last year. The 2018 Truck Series season opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway was unkind to Gragson and the No. 18 team. After getting caught up in two separate incidents, the Safelite Tundra headed to the garage after completing just 79 of the 100 laps and was relegated to a 23rd-place finish.

Ryan Blaney enters this week’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 with five consecutive results of 11th or better on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

Moving into Team Penske equipment, there is no reason to believe he is going to slow down any, so he should be one of the drivers to start this week. Currently, 29 percent of NASCAR Fantasy Live players have activated him for good reason.

Clint Bowyer scored seven consecutive top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, which led him all the way to the playoffs.

Bowyer finished 11th or better in his first four tries on "cookie-cutter" courses—including an 11th at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Unfortunately, that is his only top-20 on this track in the past four years. Bowyer lost his momentum at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the fall, however, and needs to reclaim it in order to make a run for the playoffs.

Jeffrey Earnhardt has made 17 starts on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks during his career with a best result of 26th.

His career-best of 26th on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks came on two occasions: at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2016 and last year at Kansas Speedway. His best effort at Atlanta was only a 33rd in last year’s QuikTrip 500.

In 10 starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks last year, Kyle Larson finished second four times.

One of these came in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. His next two starts on the track type also ended in runner-up finishes, which must have made him feel like the perennial bridesmaid. Of course, that was better than the pair of results that ended his season. Larson finished 39th with engine failure at Kansas Speedway last fall to knock him out of the playoffs and he was 37th following an accident at Texas Motor Speedway.
Feb 22 - 11:04 AM

Paul Menard recorded an average finish of 21.7 on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks last year in his final season with Richard Childress Racing.

By contrast, his current team finished with a 10.3 while Ryan Blaney was racing with the Wood Bros. Spilt the difference and fantasy owners can expect a result somewhere in the high-teens for Menard at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Michael Annett’s best NXS finish at AMS is 10th, coming in September 2012.

He has been very consistent at Atlanta, completing all but 10 of the 1,138 laps run in his six NXS starts. In his last start at AMS, Annett raced to a solid 15th place finish. In the season’s first race at Daytona, Annett spent a considerable amount of time in the top 10 before being collected in a lap-106 crash. The No. 5 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet was ultimately scored in the 37th position.JR Motorsports
