Jeff Gordon posted the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice for the Oral-B USA 500. His speed of 181.050 mph was posted during his first 10 laps on track.

Gordon also reportedly had the fastest five- and 15-lap averages, which makes him a challenger for the victory Sunday night if the race includes a long, green flag segment at the end.

Marcos Ambrose will seek his third top-10 finish on an unrestricted oval this weekend in the Oral-B USA 500. His two previous strong runs came on the short tracks of Bristol and Martinsville in March.

Ambrose lost a good opportunity to challenge for a victory last week at Bristol. This week, he was fast in practice briefly before struggling in qualification and timing in at 32nd. There are simply too many reasons to leave him in the garage to make him an acceptable value for Atlanta

Danica Patrick will race chassis No. 10-838 Sunday night in the Oral-B USA 500. This car was used at Texas, where it started 24th and finished 27th.

The chassis was also used at Pocono in June. Patrick cut a tire in that race and crashed before finishing 37th. The No. 10 has not been particularly strong this weekend and qualified only 27th.

Matt Kenseth hopes to rebound after crashing at Michigan two weeks ago. In the most recent unrestricted, intermediate speedway race, he finished 38th after starting 18th.

Last week, Kenseth had a solid performance at Bristol with a third-place finish and he qualified fifth for Sunday’s race. Luck is an intangible that cannot be handicapped, so the driver of the No. 20 should be treated as a favorite for a top-10.

After Ryan Preece set fast time and won the pole in the spring visit to the Langley (VA) Speedway, the defending NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion returned in the second visit by the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour and led the way in practice for the Bayport Credit Union 150.

Preece finished the session with a fast time of 15.066 seconds (96.424 mph) to lead the field of 17 cars. Burt Myers followed in second at 15.103 seconds (94.392 mph) with points leader Andy Seuss third (15.117/94.304). Danny Bohn and rookie Joe Ryan Osborne completed the top five.

Joey Logano posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Oral-B USA 500. His 189.351 mph was slightly more than one mile per hour slower than Kevin Harvick’s pole winning speed.

Logano struggled to find short term speed on Friday and failed to advance to the final round of qualification for only the second time in races that held all three sessions. This spurt of speed negates any concern fantasy owners had about Logano’s odds.

Canadian Tire regular (No. 27 Dodge) Andrew Ranger is fastest in Happy Hour for the Camping World Truck Series Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

At 109.614 mph in the No. 53 MOPAR/Inoxsan RAM, he was the fastest of the 27 trucks out on the track for the final practice. No. 77 German Quiroga, No. 00 Cole Custer, No. 29 Ryan Blaney and No. 20 Gray Gaulding are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 10 Caleb Roark was the slowest.

Kasey Kahne will race chassis 5-820 in Sunday night’s Oral-B USA 500. It has been raced three times so far this year.

This car was raced most recently at Kentucky where it finished eighth. Kahne was not so lucky at Auto Club where he finished 41st, but he lost more than 25 laps attending to a broken rear end.

Landon Cassill was forced to take a provisional to start the Oral-B USA 500. He will roll of the grid 42nd on Sunday night.

In games that offer place-differential points, however, he could be a good value. He started 43rd on another unrestricted, intermediate speedway at Michigan two weeks ago and finished 29th. In 24 races this year, he has the fifth-best average improvement during a race after starting 35.3 and finishing 31.2.
Aug 30 - 1:23 PM

Austin Dillon will drive chassis No. 465 at Atlanta. It was previously raced at Kentucky, Charlotte, and Texas.

Dillon finished 16th in Kentucky and Charlotte. He was 21st at Texas, and if he can score solid finish in the top-20s this week, he will be a good fantasy value. His 13th-place qualification effort for the Oral-B USA 500 gives him good track position when the green flag waves.

Casey Mears has been a consistently solid performer on unrestricted, intermediate speedways in 2014. Six of eight races on similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks have ended in results of 26th or better.

That will not make Mears an anchor to any roster, but he could provide a good value as the final selection if he fits a fantasy players’ budget. His latest two races on this track type at Kentucky and Michigan ended in top-20s with a best of 17th in the Pure Michigan 400.
Aug 30 - 1:21 PM

Jeff Gordon will drive chassis No. 24-861 in the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta this week. This car has been raced four times previously in 2014.

Gordon finished sixth with this chassis in the spring Michigan race, seventh at Charlotte and Darlington, and 13th at Auto Club. The pavement at Atlanta is similar to what he faced in California, but Gordon has finished in the top 10 in every other race on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks, so he should be viewed as a favorite to do so again.

AJ Allmendinger could be poised to earn his fourth consecutive top-15 finish this week at Atlanta. On another unrestricted, intermediate speedway two weeks ago, he started 22nd and finished 12th in the Pure Michigan 400.

He went the full distance in that race, but it was only the third time this year he did so on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks. The good news is that one of his other complete races came at Auto Club and its surface is nearly as abrasive as that in Atlanta.
Aug 30 - 1:18 PM

After finishing outside the top 10 in five consecutive races from Daytona through Watkins Glen, Jimmie Johnson is beginning to regain his momentum. He finished ninth at Michigan and fourth at Bristol.

Johnson had to overcome problems in both of those races. He had a broken shifter lever at Michigan and a speeding penalty at Bristol, and since he persevered, that will add to the confidence of the team. He will need that since he qualified modestly for the Oral-B USA 500 in 16th.
Aug 30 - 1:15 PM

Paul Menard will drive a battle-tested chassis No. 454 at Atlanta. This car was previously run in four of the five similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races as well as Michigan.

Menard has earned top-five finishes at Las Vegas and Michigan and two more top-10s at Texas and Charlotte with this chassis, but he has never had to come from this deep in the pack. In fact, his 33rd-place qualification effort is the worst of the season and that makes him a questionable value for Sunday.
