Last year was not what Tony Stewart expected on any track and the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile courses were no exception. He finished 42nd last fall with an accident at Texas Motor Speedway and scored only one top-25 after May’s Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The 2016 season was supposed to be his opportunity to contend for a championship in his last fulltime season, but now he needs to gain more than 70 points to climb into the top 30 as well as score a victory. Given the performance of the team, the points will not be a problem, but unless he wins on a wild card track like Daytona this July or Sonoma Raceway/Watkins Glen International in the summer, he still faces a significant obstacle.

Brian Scott has finished 27th in his last two attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Before doing so, he stared 32nd at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and 27th at Texas Motor Speedway in route to those results.

Scott has been losing value in salary cap games and could stabilize and become a roster-filler if he does not qualify well at Kansas Speedway. This spring, he dropped 21 place-differential points after starting 10th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

In three starts with BK Racing this season, David Ragan has finished either 32nd or 33rd. He had a pair of 32nds at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway before falling one spot at Texas Motor Speedway.

Ragan’s consistency also manifests in qualification. He has a 33rd-place start and two 31sts in that span, so if he starts in the same range this week, he will probably finish within a position or two of there.

One week after leaving Daytona International Speedway where he made an unforced error and crashed, Dale Earnhardt Jr. went to Atlanta Motor Speedway and finished second. Last week at Talladega SuperSpeedway, Earnhardt also spun on his own. This week the series rolls onto the similarly-configured Kansas Speedway.

Junior should have been an easy pick in both restrictor-plate, superspeedway races and wasn’t. He seems to have transferred his luck to this week’s track type because he enters with four consecutive top-10s at Texas Motor Speedway, Atlanta, and Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

In his last 12 starts on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track, Jamie McMurray has finished 20th or better in 11 races. His outlier was a 21st at Atlanta Motor Speedway this spring and his average finish in that span of race was slightly worse than 14th.

McMurray would have an almost perfect record on this track type if not for an accident in the 2015 Atlanta race. He has not scored a top-five on these courses since 2014, but he ended that season with back-to-back results of third and fifth at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway respectively.

Clint Bowyer will make a return to NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) competition with JR Motorsports (JRM).

Bowyer, a veteran racer and 19-time NASCAR national series winner, will drive JRM’s No. 88 Morton Buildings Chevrolet Camaro at Chicagoland Speedway (Sept. 17). Bowyer, who currently races full-time for HScott Motorsports in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, is named as the ninth driver to pilot JRM’s No. 88 "All-Star" Chevrolet in 2016. He joins Josh Berry, Alex Bowman, Cole Custer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Chase Elliott, Kenny Habul, Kevin Harvick and Regan Smith. In nine starts this season, the team holds two wins (Daytona and Richmond), five top-five and eight top-10 finishes.-JRM

Matt Crafton (#88 IdealDoor/Menards Toyota Tundra) had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in final practice for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Toyota Tundra 250.

The average speed of 174.823 mph was best of the 12 trucks that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. #24 Clint Bowyer, #19 Daniel Hemric, #00 Cole Custer and #4 Christopher Bell are the rest of the top five on this list.
May 5 - 8:13 PM

John Wes Townley (#05 Jive Communications Chevrolet Silverado) led the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session at Kansas Speedway.

He ran a quick lap of 176.980 mph. #23 Spencer Gallagher, #13 Cameron Hayley, #29 Tyler Reddick and #88 Matt Crafton round out the top five of the 32 trucks practicing for the Toyota Tundra 250. Jennifer Jo Cobb in the #10 Chevrolet Silverado was the slowest.
May 5 - 8:10 PM

William Byron (#9 Liberty University Toyota Tundra) is fastest in the second practice for the Camping World Truck Series Toyota Tundra 250.

At 176.650 mph, he was the fastest of the 32 trucks out on the track for this session. #05 John Wes Townley, #88 Matt Crafton, #19 Daniel Hemric and #41 Ben Rhodes are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Jennifer Jo Cobb was the slowest in the #10 Chevy Silverado.
May 5 - 5:55 PM

Tyler Reddick (#29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150) led the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session at Kansas Speedway.

He ran a quick lap of 176.137 mph. #88 Matt Crafton, #11 Matt Tifft, #05 John Wes Townley and #41 Ben Rhodes round out the top five of the 27 trucks practicing for the Toyota Tundra 250. Austin Wayne Self in the #22 Toyota Tundra was the slowest.

In his last 10 starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, AJ Allmendinger has alternated lead lap finishes with results off the pace. Only three of his efforts in that span have ended in the mid-teens and he has not scored a top-10 on this track type since early 2015.

‘Dinger’s last top-10 came in March 2015 with a sixth at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which came on the heels of a seventh at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This spring, he finished 14th and on the lead lap at Vegas. If his pattern holds, he should be able to go the distance at Kansas Speedway in the GoBowling.com 400.
May 5 - 4:04 PM

Regan Smith has not had a lot of success on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year, but his last two efforts have an asterisk. He sustained crash damage at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway this spring to finish 25th and 31st.

Smith lost only one lap at Vegas, however, and salvaged a 25th-place finish. The Tommy Baldwin Racing No. 7 has occasionally rallied to score decent results, but with smaller fields in 2016 they have not made up much ground via attrition and that seems to impact their average finish.
May 5 - 4:02 PM

Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano were both involved in the same late-race accident at Talladega SuperSpeedway that ended their day, but it was not their first contact on the track. While trying to bump-draft the No. 20, Logano knocked Kenseth off course and the two argued about the incident outside of the care center.

Rewind to last fall’s Hollywood Casino 400 and Logano’s bump on Kenseth that effectively ended his Chase hopes. That storyline will be front-of-mind this week and could trigger further retaliation between a pair of drivers with bad blood. Logano is undoubtedly still stinging over the Martinsville Speedway wreck that ended his Chase. Neither driver is a safe bet in the upcoming GoBowling.com 400.
May 5 - 4:01 PM

Nine of Michael Annett’s 12 starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in the No. 46 have ended in a result somewhere in the 30s, including all three race this season and the last two of 2015.

Annett came close to getting into the high-20s at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway though. He finished 30th in both races. More importantly, he has finished better than he started in his last seven races on this track type, which means he has earned positive place-differential points and could be a great way to extend one’s salary cap.
May 5 - 4:01 PM

Martin Truex Jr. has been running on the lead lap in his most recent 17 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, a streak that extends to the 2014 MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. Ten of those results ended in top-10s and nearly all were top-15s.

Last year, his best Kansas Speedway result was a ninth in the spring. He had more momentum at the time than when he entered finished 15th in the fall, so fantasy owners should expect a result somewhere in between.
