This will mark Fowler's 16th career start in the NASCAR XFINITY Series but the first with JGL Racing. He has four previous NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at the Concord, North Carolina track with a best finish of 23rd. He also competed in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at the track last weekend where he came home with a 20th place finish.-Integrity Sports Marketing

Jeff Gordon knows it will be difficult to match the feeling he gets racing after this season, but broadcasting could provide something close to it.

That was among the reasons Gordon decided to pursue broadcasting, leading to Thursday’s announcement that he’ll join Mike Joy and Darrell Waltrip in the booth for Fox’s broadcast of NASCAR Sprint Cup events. Gordon has signed a multi-year contract. He replaces Larry McReynolds, who had been in the booth since Fox began broadcasting Cup races in 2001. McReynolds will remain an analyst for the network.

Sprint Cup regular Austin Dillon has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 177.477 mph in the No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro was best of the 13 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 5 Kasey Kahne, No. 6 Darrell Wallace Jr., No. Ryan Reed and No. 62 Brendan Gaughan are the rest of the top five on this list.

Ty Dillon tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The No. 3 Bass Pro Shops/NWTF.org Chevrolet Camaro driver ran a fast lap of 181.068 mph. No. 6 Darrell Wallace Jr., No. 62 Brendan Gaughan, No. 33 Austin Dillon and No. 22 Ryan Blaney round out the top-five of the 42 cars out on the track. The No. 74 Dodge driven by Mike Harmon was the slowest in the final practice session.

Darrell Wallace Jr. leads the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Landon Cassill qualified 32nd for the Coca-Cola 600 and will probably finish in that same 30th-place range if the past similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races this season are an indication. He finished 29th last week at Kansas Speedway after taking a provisional.

A more representative result might be his 32nd-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway after starting 33rd. Either way, his potential on this track type is not as great as on a short, flat course after scoring 20-something results in events at Martinsville Speedway, Phoenix International Raceway, and Richmond International Raceway so Cassill can be saved for another day.

Michael McDowell will make his second start in as many weeks after posting the 25th fastest time in qualification for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

McDowell qualified 31st last week on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway and finished 36th, but the last time he rolled off the grid in this range, he finished 27th at Atlanta from a 24th-place gridding. Fantasy owners willing to roll the dice might find a great fantasy value in the No. 95.
May 21 - 10:20 PM

Jeb Burton, Mike Bliss, Travis Kvapil, Brendan Gaughan, and Jeff Green failed to find enough speed to make the Coca-Cola 600 and will have to watch from the pits Sunday night.

Make certain these drivers are not on your roster, but keep an eye on them for future races because they become greater bargains each time they fail to qualify.

Greg Biffle earned his season-best starting position in qualification for the Coca-Cola 600. He posted the fourth fastest time and rolls off the grid from the outside of the second row.

This is the second consecutive week Biffle earned a season-best starting position. Last week he started seventh at Kansas Speedway in the SpongeBob SquarePants 400 and earned his best result on an unrestricted, intermediate speedway. With renewed confidence, he could finish better than 12th this week and earn his second top-10 of 2015.
May 21 - 9:45 PM

Matt Kenseth posted a lap of 194.252 mph in the final round of qualification and will lead the field to green Sunday night for the Coke 600. This is his first career pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Kenseth started on the outside of the front row for the 2011 Bank of America 500 and he won that event. A couple of third-place starts in 2005 and 2013 have not been as efficient, however, with results of 37th and 15th respectively.

Carl Edwards posted the fastest single in the first practice session for the Coca-Cola 600. His top speed was 192.273 mph and was set near the end of the session.

Edwards has one top-10 and another top-15 on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but his average in four events on this course type is 21st. Fans are rooting for him to have a reversal of fortune, but he is still a risky proposition.
May 21 - 3:57 PM

JJ Yeley will most likely finish in the mid-30s this week, if his other attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks are an indication. He blew an engine at Texas Motor Speedway, but finished 34th-37th in his other three attempts. Yeley’s best result came at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Yeley qualified a BK Racing machine at Charlotte Motor Speedway last fall and finished 38th. He will only be a good value if he fits a very specific niche on a fantasy player’s roster.
May 21 - 12:38 PM

Jeb Burton has had a difficult time this year on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He attempted to qualify for all four races with a best of 35th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Burton needed a provisional to start that race and was forced to use the same avenue to make the Las Vegas Motor Speedway race. He failed to qualify at Texas Motor Speedway, and finally made the show on time last week at Kansas Speedway. Unfortunately, he broke a rear gear and finished 42nd in the SpongeBob SquarePants 400.
May 21 - 12:38 PM

Jeff Green will make his second attempt of 2015 this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Coke 600. He will try to qualify the No. 30 Curtis Key entry.

Green’s previous attempt this year came at Richmond in late April. He made the show on time, but finished 14 laps off the pace in 40th. With a field of 48 cars this week, simply making the show would be an accomplishment.
