Carrying the momentum of a career best 12th place finish under the lights Friday night at the Daytona, Georgia native Korbin Forrester looks towards another strong run at the Atlanta Motor Speedway when the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competes in the Hyundai Construction Equipment 200.

The Cedartown, GA native is excited to get behind the wheel of the No. 08 Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery Chevrolet for his first NASCAR event in his home state, "Even though I’ve never run there before, I’m coming with the right group of people to be competitive with and a team who has experience at Atlanta that will help me get our Tilted Kilt Chevy up to speed quickly." It will also be Forrister’s first race on a mile-and a half speedway in the NCWTS.-SSRacingOnline PR

BK Racing continues to add to its driver roster, announcing Thursday that Matt DiBenedetto has joined the team and will compete part-time in the Sprint Cup Series this season.

Dibenedetto is being immediately put into action, as he’ll attempt to qualify for Sunday’s QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. If he makes it, Dibenedetto will compete in his first career Sprint Cup race.

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the afternoon test session at Atlanta. His top speed was 188.424 mph, which was posted early in his run. Gordon also posted the quickest 10-lap average in that session with a speed of 185.458 mph during his first 10 laps around the track.

The speeds were uniformly lower in the second session, but they were also tighter. Gordon beat Ryan Newman by only one-thousandth of a second in that session as NASCAR continues to search for parity among teams.

Jamie McMurray posted the fastest single lap in Thursday morning’s test at Atlanta. His top speed was 191.549 mph, which was more than 1.3 mphs faster than teammate Kyle Larson who was second in that session.

With individual testing banned by NASCAR, these pre-weekend sessions give teams a chance to evaluate and become comfortable with the new aerodynamic package.

Michael McDowell and the No. 95 team blew an engine at Las Vegas last year in the second attempt of the season, while they still had plans to make all the races. Once they trimmed their schedule, results improved.

Five of the six races for which they qualified on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks ended in a narrow range of results from 29th to 32nd, which made them an interesting choice for the bottom salary cap slot.
