Ontario County (NY) sheriff, Phil Povero, said in a statement early Sunday that the 20-year-old driver that Tony Stewart hit on Saturday night was transferred by ambulance to a nearby hospital and was "dead on arrival."

Kevin Ward Jr. wrecked during a sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on Saturday night, which appeared to be caused by Stewart. Ward got out of his car, approached Stewart's car on the next lap and was angrily gesturing at Stewart under a yellow flag. Stewart reportedly appeared to hit the gas as he went by, causing the rear of the car to slide and catch Ward with the back tire, dragging him under the car, throwing him 25-50 feet, and apparently killing him instantly. There is an ongoing investigation and Stewart's status for Sunday's race at Watkins Glen is unknown. Stewart is said to be very upset and is cooperating with authorities, while no charges have been filed as of yet. Our thoughts are with the victim's family and friends in one of the most bizarre tragedies in sports history.

Cody Coughlin (No. 13 JEGS Toyota Tundra) will make his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Although he has never competed on the 1.54-mile track, the JEGS driver has five intermediate track starts since 2015. Chasing Rookie of the Year: Coughlin, who finished 11th in the season opener at Daytona International Speedway (DIS), was the third highest finishing Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender in the 100-lap event.-ThorSport Racing

Race Rewind - Daytona: Making his second start at Daytona in the NCWTS, Enfinger started 11th, ran as high as first, and finished 16th following a last lap accident in the 100-lap event. He was the fourth highest finishing Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender in Friday night's season opener.-ThorSport Racing

In Ben Rhodes' Atlanta Motor Speedway debut in 2016, the Louisville, KY native started seventh, ran as high as second, and finished sixth in the 130-lap event.

In nine career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts on an Intermediate-style track (1.5-miles to 1.54-miles in length), Rhodes has one top-10 (Atlanta) and four top-15 finishes. The No. 27 team will utilize chassis No. 62 for Saturday's race. This is the same chassis Cameron Hayley piloted to a third-place finish at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet (2016), and a 10th-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth (2016).-ThorSport Racing

Timmy Hill has one top-25 to his credit on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. That came at Kansas Speedway in 2012 when he finished 22nd.

Hill completed all the laps that afternoon in Frank Stoddard’s No. 32—one of two times that he went the distance. His other complete race was a 28th, also at Kansas. Of his 17 starts on this track type, he has one Atlanta race under his belt in 2013; he finished 31st after starting 41st and was running at the end.

Kyle Busch has earned 10 top-10s in his last 12 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, dating back to the fall 2015 Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway.

He also has one 12th-place finish, which means that he has truly struggled only once. In fact, eight of these efforts were top-fives including a pair of victories. That makes Busch one of the most consistent drivers in the field. Last year, he finished third after starting the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 39th.
Feb 28 - 8:28 PM

Danica Patrick earned a pair of top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2014, but she has not been able to record another in more than two years since.

In her last 24 attempts, Patrick has scored only one additional top-15. That came last fall at Charlotte when she crossed under the checkers 11th. She also has several 16th-place results, so she is expected to at least contend for a top-20. If she fits the right niche on a player’s roster, she could be a good value.

Daniel Suarez failed to finish the Daytona 500 in his first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start and hopes to rebound at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Suarez’s 29th-place finish was disappointing even though he was the highest finishing rookie. The driver is much better on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and his Joe Gibbs Racing team will be more predictable on this track type. Still, he currently languishes in the points alongside several other veteran drivers who are much more likely to move up the standings. It is only one race, but Suarez has some serious obstacles to overcome early.

Gray Gaulding will join the Rookie of the Year battle at Atlanta Motor Speedway this week, making his third career start.

Gaulding’s two previous attempts do not provide enough data to adequately handicap him because he parked early at both Martinsville Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway last fall. His best finish was a 37th in the Can-Am 500 and with only 38 cars in attendance in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, he is likely to finish better this week. He is not recommended for fantasy owners, however.
Feb 28 - 5:35 PM

Richard Childress Racing (RCR) announced Scott Lagasse Jr. will join its driver lineup for four NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races this season.

He will make his RCR debut at Iowa Speedway on June 24, followed by races at Road America, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Lagasse Jr. has made 61 starts in the XFINITY Series and 25 starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He will work with first-year crew chief, Matt Swiderski, who assumed crew chief duties for the No. 3 team at the end of the 2016 season.
