Sprint Cup regular Joey Logano won the Drive To Stop Diabetes 300, his 23rd victory in 138 NASCAR XFINITY Series races.

This is the No. 22 Discount Ford Mustang driver's second NXS victory and third top-10 finish in 2015. This is his second victory and seventh top-10 finish in nine NXS races at Bristol Motor Speedway. Logano led all 300 laps - a BMS NASCAR XFINITY Series race record. It was also an XFINITY Series record for most laps led in a race. Logano's win was the second straight victory for the No. 22 Ford at Bristol Motor Speedway (Ryan Blaney, 8/22/14).

Camping World Truck Series regular Erik Jones won the 21 Means 21 Pole Award for the Drive to Stop Diabetes 300 with a lap of 15.331 seconds, 125.158 mph.

He is the youngest NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) pole winner in Bristol Motor Speedway history (18 years, 10 months, 19 days). This is the No. 20 GameStop Toyota Camry driver's third pole in ten NXS races. It is his third pole and sixth top-10 NXS start in 2015 and his first pole in two races at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Kevin Harvick recorded the quickest 10-lap average in the final practice session for the Food City 500 with a speed of 125.934 mph from laps 35 through 44.

Harvick was seventh fastest in terms of single laps in that session, but he has been uniformly strong all weekend. He remains a favorite for Sunday and should keep his current top-10 streak alive at the very least.

Jeff Gordon struggled through most of the weekend at Bristol with only the 13th fastest lap in Friday’s practice session, a qualification speed that landed him 23rd on the grid, and the 15th-fastest speed in Saturday morning’s session. In final practice, he finally jumped to the top of the board with the fourth-fastest single lap of speed at 126.420 mph.

Gordon’s time in final practice was 15.178 seconds and it appears that the race pace is coming back to the No. 24 more than that Gordon is catching the field. He should be able to finish in the top 10, but with such a bad pit stall fantasy owners should not expect much more.
Apr 18 - 12:32 PM

Kurt Busch posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Food City 500. His top speed was 127.554 mph.

Busch was also strong (both fast and quick) in Saturday morning’s session and qualified well. He should be considered one of four or five favorites to win on Sunday.
Apr 18 - 12:27 PM

Sam Hornish Jr. was forced to take a provisional starting position to make the Food City 500. He will roll off the grid 39th. This was the second time in the past three races he was forced to fall back on that rule. He finished 32nd two weeks ago at Martinsville after starting 38th.

Hornish found a little more speed in Saturday morning’s practice. He was 24th on the grid with a 10-lap average speed of 123.485 mph among 38 drivers who logged 10 or more laps. That would equate to about a 27th-place finish.

Chris Buescher has been searching for speed most of the weekend at Bristol. He was forced to take a provisional to start the Food City 500 and posted only the 37th-quickest time Saturday morning among 38 drivers who posted 10 or more laps.

Buescher also took a provisional to start last week’s Duck Commander 500, but he advanced 10 positions to finish 30th. That earned significant place differential points for his fantasy owners.

It has been a tale of two practices for Justin Allgaier so far at Bristol Motor Speedway. He posted the third-quickest 10-lap average during Friday’s practice with a speed of 123.107 mph; 17 drivers ran 10 or more laps in that session. Allgaier had roughly the same speed in Saturday morning’s session with a 123.209 mph 10-lap average, but with more drivers working on race trim he slipped to 29th of 38 on the grid.

That is the nature of Bristol, but Allgaier had a strong qualification effort that landed him 15th on the grid. He should be able to finish in the low to mid-20s on Sunday.
Apr 18 - 11:07 AM

Kurt Busch posted the second-quickest 10-lap average in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Food City 500. His top speed was 125.158 mph in his first 10 laps on the track. He also had the fourth-fastest single lap of 126.088 during his fourth trip around the track.

Busch has five previous wins at Bristol and would like to visit Victory Lane once more. That will punch his ticket to the Chase and complete his return to racing.
Apr 18 - 11:02 AM

Kevin Harvick posted the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice session for the Food City 500 with a speed of 125.725 mph from laps two through 11.

Harvick also had the second-fastest single lap at 126.395 mph. He qualified fourth and has a great balance of early speed and durability. He is heavily favored to score his first Bristol top-five in the last 13 races on this track. His most recent triumph was a fourth in the 2008 Sharpie 500.

Ryan Newman and the No. 31 team have decided to appeal again the penalty stemming from a tire doctoring issue at Auto Club Speedway. In their first appeal, heard by a three-man panel, their points’ deduction and monetary fines were reduced but the suspension upheld against crew chief Luke Lambert. Final Appeals Officer Bryan Moss will hear their arguments next week.

This will put Lambert back on top of the pit box at Bristol for the Food City 500 Supporting Steve Byrnes and Stand Up to Cancer. Newman qualified 18th for the race.
Apr 18 - 10:27 AM

Kasey Kahne posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Food City 500 Supporting Steve Byrnes and Stand Up to Cancer. His top speed was 126.829 mph.

Kahne rolls off the grid eighth on Sunday. He is putting together a complete weekend and should be one of this week’s best values. He has struggled at times during 2015 and could be overlooked by the competition.
Apr 18 - 9:33 AM

Tony Stewart slapped the wall early in the second practice session for the Food City 500 Supporting Steve Byrnes and Stand Up to Cancer. The damage was probably not severe enough to give up his 21st-place qualification effort.

Stewart was one of many drivers who were much too loose to race. He still has at least one more practice session to get it right, but is looking like a risky fantasy proposition.
Apr 18 - 8:43 AM

Danica Patrick needs to avoid trouble if she wants to earn her first Bristol top-15. In five previous starts, she has sustained damage in four events and has a best result of 18th.

Patrick has also failed to finish on the lead lap a single time. Her performance is much improved in 2015 and the No. 10 team is on the cusp of being in Chase contention. She qualified 26th for Sunday’s Food City 500.
Apr 17 - 9:59 PM

David Gilliland qualified 32nd for Sunday’s Food City 500, which is the exact same position where he started last fall’s Irwin Tools Night Race. He finished 25th in that event.

That was Gilliland’s fifth straight 20-something finish at Bristol. If he can keep that streak alive, he will earn positive place differential points in games that offer them.
