A broken rear seal caused the No. 48 to leak fluid from the axle and sent Jimmie Johnson to the pits just past the 100-lap mark. He lost 37 laps making repairs and could not make up any significant ground in the race. Johnson finished 41st in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway and failed to advance to the Contender round.

Johnson entered the race with a 25-point cushion and was expected to easily advance and challenge for his seventh Cup championship. He will continue to be a solid fantasy value, however, even though he no longer has a shot at the big prize.

Joey Logano barely kept his top-10 streak alive in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway. He finished 10th after starting fourth.

Strictly in terms of recent results, Logano would seem to have more momentum than anyone else, but with the dominant performance by Kevin Harvick it may be time to start thinking of him as the second-most likely racer to win this year’s Sprint Cup.

Kyle Larson finished ninth in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway, which was his third consecutive top-10 on this track. His worst effort on the high-banked miler was 11th—earned in his inaugural attempt.

No one could run with Kevin Harvick in the AAA 400, but Larson had a legitimate shot at earning a top-five late in the race. He failed to find much speed during the final restart and got shuffled backward, but he will be one of the top ranked drivers when the series returns to Dover next year.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr finished eighth in the AAA 400 at Dover and earned his second top-10 of the season. His other top-10 came on the high-banked short track of Bristol Motor Speedway, which is sometimes considered a sister track to Dover.

Stenhouse’s next best opportunity to score a top-15 will probably come at Phoenix International Raceway in the next-to-last race because two of his better efforts came on that track this spring and New Hampshire Motor Speedway last week.

Matt Kenseth earned his fourth consecutive top-10 with a seventh at Dover International Speedway in the AAA 400, which allowed him to easily advance to the Contender round of the playoffs.

Kenseth ended the Challenger round as the top seeded driver, but now he is tied for first with 11 other racers as the points reset to 3,000. Kenseth needs to keep his momentum alive for three more weeks and he has a good opportunity to do so with back-to-back races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.
Oct 4 - 8:43 PM

For the first time all season, Kasey Kahne earned back-to-back top-10s when he crossed under the checkers sixth in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway on the heels of a ninth last week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

In both races, Kahne quietly earned his finish and that is a good omen heading to Charlotte where this organization has had so much success. Kahne should be treated as a rising value for fantasy owners.

Doug Coby rolled to his second straight win Sunday in the NAPA Fall Final 150 at Connecticut's Stafford Motor Speedway and will head into the season finale as the championship points leader.

Ryan Preece, the 2013 champion who was the runner-up to Coby in 2012 and 2014, rebounded from an accident and pit road penalty to finish second at Stafford. Woody Pitkat, who entered the penultimate race weekend with the points lead, finished 12th after being involved in a late-race wreck. The result is Coby will head to the season finale even in points with Preece. They are both four points (565) ahead of Pitkat (561) going into the Sunoco World Series 150 at Connecticut's Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Sunday, Oct. 18.
Oct 4 - 8:29 PM

Aric Almirola was running 11th when the final caution waved over the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway and he opted to pit for four tires. The rest of the lead lap cars followed him down pit road and he restarted in that same position, but with four fresh feel-goods on his machine, he surged to fifth in the final rundown.

This is Almirola’s second top-five and third top-10 in the past four races. Last week at New Hampshire, he cut a tire and pounded the wall or he might have kept his streak alive. At his salary cap level, Almirola has been one of the best values during the past month and he should be watch closely in the coming weeks.

Jamie McMurray earned his best finish in 20 races and snapped a 13-race streak of sub-10th-place finishes, but it was not quite enough to advance to the final round. He ended the AAA 400 fourth, but tied with Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the points at the cutoff mark. By finishing third this week, the No. 88 had the tiebreaker and McMurray has been eliminated from the Chase.

This was McMurray’s first Chase. Last year Aric Almirola and AJ Allmendinger were also eliminated in the first round of the Chase after getting their first berth, but the encouraging news for McMurray fans is that he ran much better than he has in several months. He will become more fantasy relevant as a result.
Oct 4 - 6:47 PM

Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished third in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway and that tied him with Jamie McMurray for 12th in the standings. NASCAR’s tiebreaker in the Chase is the best finish during the current round. By finishing one position ahead of McMurray, Junior earned the spot.

Junior can also thank the six bonus points he earned by winning Talladega SuperSpeedway and Daytona International Speedway for giving him enough room to get around the No. 1. This is Earnhardt’s best finish since his Coke Zero 400 victory.
Oct 4 - 6:47 PM

Kyle Busch entered the AAA 400 on the outside of the Chase cutoff and needed a strong run to advance. He led 19 laps and finished second to Kevin Harvick and was one point ahead of the cutoff position.

On his radio before the final restart Busch opined that he would get wrecked if he tried to pass Harvick. He may have opted to play safe or may have been unable to pass Harvick, but he did what was needed to get to the Contender round as a Chaser and that improves his odds in future races.
Oct 4 - 6:25 PM

Kevin Harvick was in a must-win situation after two bad races to start the Chase. He dominated the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway by leading 355 laps and beating Kyle Busch to the line by 2.6 seconds.

Last year Harvick was in a must-win situation at Phoenix International Raceway in the next-to-last event and he advanced to the Championship Race. He had to win at Homestead-Miami Speedway to win the Cup and he did. Harvick has become "Mr. Clutch" and he re-assumes the favored status to win the 2015 Cup.
Oct 4 - 6:18 PM

The No. 78 team was caught making an aerodynamic adjustment on pit road post qualification, and has been moved to the back of the grid. He will start last.

This seriously impacts Truex’s odds of earning a top-10 and fantasy owners should make last minute adjustments to remove him from the grid.
Oct 4 - 2:32 PM

Eleven points out of the championship lead with two races remaining, Doug Coby took down top qualifying honors Saturday at Stafford Motor Speedway in advance of Sunday’s NAPA Fall Final 150. Ryan Preece, just three points ahead of Coby, qualified on the outside pole.

It marked Coby’s fourth career pole at Stafford – a place where he has six Whelen Modified Tour wins – and was his fifth overall in 2015 behind the wheel of the No. 2 Dunleavy’s/HEX Performance Chevrolet. Preece’s quick time of 18.428 (97.677) will place him right alongside Coby for Sunday’s start. The driver of the No. 6 TS Haulers/East West Marine Chevrolet has won three of the previous four Stafford races, including last year’s NAPA Fall Final 150.

John Wes Townley (No. 05 Zaxby's Chevrolet Silverado) won the Rhino Linings 350, his first victory in 87 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races.

This is his seventh top-10 finish in 2015 and his second top-10 finish in four races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Townley started second in the lineup and led 23 laps of the 146-lap race. He is currently eighth in the 2015 NCWTS Championship standings.

After the Drive Sober 125 presented by the Delaware Office of Highway Safety was postponed Friday due to inclement weather, and the start was delayed again Saturday morning, William Byron was finally able to drive his No. 9 Liberty University Chevrolet to a ninth-place finish and raise the 2015 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship trophy Saturday afternoon at Dover International Speedway.

He entered the event with a 13-point lead over teammate Scott Heckert and 14 over two-time Dover winner Austin Hill. But Hill dropped out of the race while running third on Lap 36 because of a mechanical issue, and Byron led enough early laps that he needed to just finish in the top 10 to ensure the title. Bryon, who led 57 laps, wound up 15 points ahead of Heckert and 33 in front of Hill. Dalton Sargeant was fourth in points, seven back of Hill, and Rico Abreu rounded out the top five.
Oct 3 - 11:35 PM

Collin Cabre scored his first career victory in Saturday's NASCAR K&N Pro Series season finale at Dover International Speedway.

Cabre became the sixth different driver from the NASCAR Drive For Diversity program to win a NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race and gave Rev Racing, which has fielded the competition team for the program since 2010, its 17th win. Cabre's No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota crossed the finish line 6.454 seconds in front of series veteran Eddie MacDonald.
Oct 3 - 11:30 PM

Regan Smith (No. 7 Fire Alarm Services Chevrolet Camaro) won the Hisense 200, his sixth victory in 197 NASCAR XFINITY Series races.

This is his second victory and 21st top-10 finish in 2015. It is Smith's first victory and fifth top-10 finish in 12 races at Dover International Speedway. His previous best finish at Dover was third, earlier this season. Smith started eighth in the lineup and led 80 laps of the 200-lap race.
Oct 3 - 10:40 PM

On the heels of two-weeks of controversial calls regarding restarts, NASCAR has announced that the restart zone has been doubled from 70 to 140 feet.

Two weeks ago at Chicagoland Speedway Jeff Gordon—who was running second on a restart—apparently jumped the leader Kyle Busch and was not flagged for the infraction. Last week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Brad Keselowski jumped Greg Biffle and was black flagged. Doubling the restart zone should give the leader a greater advantage and allow NASCAR to more accurately police the infraction.
Oct 3 - 2:57 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest speed in a shortened final practice at Dover International Speedway for the AAA 400. His top speed was 156.033 mph.

Harvick is going to need a balance of speed and durability since he is starting 15th. He will challenge for a top-five, but he needs to win in order to advance to the second round of the Chase and that is difficult to control for any driver.
