Joey Logano posted a lap of 98.461 mph and grabbed the pole for the STP 500. It is the 10th pole of his career and his first at Martinsville.

The final stall leaving pit road is critical on this short track and that is going to be good for a couple of positions in race conditions. Barring any accident or penalties, Logano is favored to finish in the top five.

Cole Custer leads the lone NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session at Martinsville Speedway.

He ran a quick lap of 96.068 mph in the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado. No. 13 Cameron Hayley, No. 98 Johnny Sauter, No. 29 Joey Logano and No. 19 Tyler Reddick round out the top five of the 36 trucks practicing for the Kroger 250. Charles Buchanan Jr. in the No. 87 Ford F-150 was the slowest. Custer also had the fastest 10-lap average speed (94.293 mph) among the 31 trucks that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session.

Casey Mears broke a transmission in the second round of qualification and will roll off the grid 24th. He will need to change his drive train, however, and that will drop him to the back of the pack.

It does not take long for drivers to get lapped on the 0.526-mile track. Mears has to be considered a long shot to even finish in the top 20.

Justin Allgaier advanced to the second round of qualification, but he wanted a little more. He crashed in that session and will qualify 21st.

His official position once qualification winds up may not matter because he has every sign of needing to go to a backup.

A faulty seal and not a blown engine caused Austin Dillon’s Chevrolet to smoke in the final moments of NASCAR’s first practice session, according to a tweet by Bob Pockrass. He will not need to change engines.

Dillon’s 15th-best speed was enough to make him an interesting dark horse and now that he will not have to start in the back of the pack, he remains fantasy relevant.

Chase Elliott struggled a little in the first and only practice session before STP 500 qualification. His top speed of 96.337 mph was only 29th best. He must qualify in the top 36 to make the show since the No. 25 does not have any owner points.

Elliott has the experience of his teammates to fall back on, however, and they are liable to contribute to a setup that is good enough to improve a few positions. Once qualified, he has all day Saturday to get his rhythm.

Ryan Newman posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the STP 500. His top speed was 97.835 mph, which narrowly beat AJ Allmendinger with a 97.679 and Jeff Gordon with a 97.664.

This is not usually one of Newman’s better tracks, but he finished third last fall after qualifying ninth. His single victory came in 2012 after starting fifth, so starting position would seem to be a key factor in his success.

Last week was the first time Ragan appeared comfortable behind the wheel of the No. 18. This week he returns to a track where he scored a top-10 in 2015.

Ragan’s latest effort at Martinsville ended in a 10th-place finish in the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500. It was this first lead lap finish in the No. 34 and he had to overcome crash damage to get it. This week he will be a good value if he stays out of trouble.

Brett Moffitt will make his first start at Martinsville this week, but he has tasted success there in the past. He won the 2010 UNOH Performance 200 in the K&N East series.

Normally that would not be enough to excite fantasy players, but Moffitt has performed well in the No. 55 this year and he could be on track to finish in the top 20.

David Gilliland has finished better than he started in the last six consecutive races at Martinsville. He also improved over his qualification effort in three of the previous four events and was sidelined by crash damage in the one race in which he faded.

Last spring Gilliland improved 13 positions in the spring and 12 in the fall. That makes him a great value in games that offer place differential points.
