In the 39-year-old RCR drivers previous starts at Kentucky Speedway, he accumulated three top-five and four top-10 finishes. Gaughan has also led seven laps and completed 100 percent of the laps ran at Kentucky Speedway. The Las Vegas-native averages a starting position of 11th and finish of 4.2.-Richard Childress Racing

On Saturday evening, Cale Conley will make his ninth Nationwide Series start of the 2014 season.

He made his first career 1.5-mile start earlier this summer at Chicagoland Speedway where he qualified 10th and finished 12th. Conley will pilot chassis No. 120 at Kentucky Speedway in Saturday evening's event. This Richard Childress Racing-prepared Chevrolet has earned one victory with Kevin Harvick at Atlanta Motor Speedway in 2013, in addition to three top-five finishes.-Richard Childress Racing

Ty Dillon is scheduled to make his second career Nationwide Series start Saturday night at the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway.

He finished seventh earlier this season in the No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro at Kentucky Speedway. The former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series regular won last June at Kentucky Speedway in the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops/TRACKER Boats Chevrolet Silverado after leading 26 laps.-Richard Childress Racing

In seven Nationwide Series starts at the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway, Brian Scott has finished 17th or better in five of the seven events.

The Boise, Idaho-native has an average starting position of 11.6 and an average finish of 17.6. He is also credited with one lap led, which was during the Series' visit to the Speedway last fall. In addition to his Nationwide Series starts, Scott has three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts with one top-five and two top-10 finishes along with 43 laps led.-Richard Childress Racing

Mike Bliss is ready to take on the 1.5-mile tri-oval of Kentucky Speedway in his 339th Nationwide Series start.

After a mechanical issue regulated Bliss to a 34th place finish earlier this season, he is ready for redemption in the Bluegrass State. With an average starting position of 16.6 and an average finishing position of 20.1, it is no surprise that Bliss has seen success at this track in his past 12 starts at the Speedway.-TriStar Motorsports NC

The NASCAR Nationwide Series returns to Kentucky Speedway this weekend for its second race of the season.

This will mark Eric McClure's 249th-career start and his 12th at the 1.5-mile speedway. Earlier this year, when the Nationwide Series made its first stop at the speedway, the team was able to overcome a 31st-place qualifying effort to post a 24th-place finish.-TriStar Motorsports NC

Making his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Cameron Hayley will be back behind the wheel of the No. 32 Cabinets by Hayley Chevrolet Silverado for Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM).

The 18-year-old Canada native competed at the 1.058-mile track in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East earlier this year and salvaged a top-15 finish after a flat tire set him and his TSM team back early in the race.-TSM

Although Ben Kennedy has never made a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, he has participated in four previous events there in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.

In those races, Kennedy earned a best start of eighth and a best finish of 16th.-Turner Scott Motorsports

Ryan Truex finished 30th in the STP 500 at Martinsville this spring, but that is his only top-30 in five races on this track type. His last five attempts this season have ended in results of 36th or worse, and he needs a top-30 to restore his confidence.

Unfortunately his Martinsville finish and a 20th at Pocono in August are his only two top-30s in 29 career starts, so it is unlikely that he will make his way onto many fantasy rosters.

David Gilliland has scored five 20-something finishes in the five short, flat track races this year, but his most recent attempt at Richmond barely made the grade; he finished 29th in the Federated Auto Parts 400.

Gilliland’s 2014 average on this track type has been 25.6 and his New Hampshire result was a 24th. Expect a mid-20s finish and plan accordingly, which means he could fit a specific niche on a player’s roster.

Aric Almirola posted back-to-back 20-something finishes in 2012 and then shocked the field with a fifth in summer 2013. His last two efforts have also ended in the 20s, so if the pattern holds, he could be ready to score another strong result.

Patterns such as these are interesting, but not particularly predictive. However, Almirola was running strong at Chicagoland in the MyAFibStory.com 400 before blowing an engine and that makes him a driver worthy of attention. If he practices well, he could make his way onto a few fantasy rosters.

Brian Vickers entered the Camping World RV Sales 301 this July with a five-race, top-15 streak and looked like he might be a solid dark horse. He qualified 17th, but never found the handle and finished outside the top 20.

He will be focused on regaining his momentum to get back inside the top 15. His single bad run this summer could be considered a fluke and allow fantasy players to take a risk on the No. 55 if Vickers practices well.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. enters the Sylvania 300 with five consecutive top-15s at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He finished 10th in this summer’s Camping World RV Sales 301.

This summer’s top-10 came on the heels of a sixth last fall. He has not scored a top-five since early in 2012, but his consistency has been apparent since the beginning of the 2010 season. In his last nine races on this track, his worst result was a 17th. There is minimal risk in starting him in the Sylvania 300.
