Jeff Gordon came within 1/1,000ths of a second of matching Matt Kenseth’s pole winning speed and will line up second to start Sunday’s AAA Texas 500. Gordon’s speed was 199.291 mph.

Gordon started much further back in 12th this spring but was still able to advance to second and challenge Joey Logano for the victory. If he stays out of trouble this week, he should be considered a lock to finish in the top five.
Oct 31 - 7:59 PM

Tony Stewart set the new track record at Texas Motor Speedway with a speed of 200.111 mph. He posted that time in the second of three rounds of time trials.

Stewart could not quite back up his time in the third and final round that sets the pole for Sunday’s race, but he was fast enough to start sixth. Stewart won the pole for the spring Duck Commander 500 on this track and finished 10th, so he is one of this week’s top choices to finish in the top 10 again.

Matt Kenseth posted a lap of 199.299 mph in the third round of qualification for the AAA Texas 500 to win the pole for Sunday’s race at Texas Motor Speedway.

That is Kenseth’s first pole at Texas, but he started on the outside pole in spring 2012 before finishing in the top five. One of his two victories also came after he started on one of the first two rows. His status as a favorite is confirmed.

Camping World Truck Series regular Ryan Blaney has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the Nationwide Series Happy Hour practice for the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 180.164 mph in the No. 12 Ford Mustang was best of the 13 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 54 Kyle Busch, No. 33 Austin Dillon, No. 22 Joey Logano and No. 20 Matt Kenseth are the rest of the top five on this list.
Oct 31 - 7:21 PM

Sprint Cup regular Austin Dillon tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the Nationwide Series O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.

The No. 33 Grainger Chevrolet Camaro driver ran a fast lap of 185.516 mph. No. 22 Joey Logano, No. 6 Trevor Bayne, No. 62 Brendan Gaughan and No. 31 Dylan Kwasniewski round out the top five of the 42 cars out on the track. The No. 87 Chevrolet driven by Carlos Contreras was the slowest in the final practice session.

Tyler Reddick wins the Keystone Light 21 Means 21 Pole Award for the 16th Annual WinStar World Casino & Resort 350 with a lap of 29.677 seconds, 181.959 mph.

This is the No. 19 DrawTite Ford F-150 driver's second pole in 15 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races. It is his second pole and ninth top-10 start in 2014. This is Reddick's first pole in two races at Texas Motor Speedway.
Oct 31 - 4:43 PM

Brian Vickers posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the AAA 500 at Texas. His top speed was 199.218 mph.

The speeds were rising quickly in the closing laps, so fantasy owners should not be surprised to see even faster times in Friday night’s qualification session. Any of the top five should be considered a favorite to score the pole. Behind Vickers, Kevin Harvick, Tony Stewart, Martin Truex Jr., and Jeff Gordon rounded out the top five.
Oct 31 - 2:34 PM

Timmy Hill has been placed in the No. 33 at Texas, which will be his fifth race with this team on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track this year.

Hill’s last two results on this track type ended in 30-something results. He was 33rd at Kansas and 36th at Charlotte, which makes him an interesting dark horse this week at Texas.
Oct 31 - 2:22 PM

Six-time ARCA Racing Series winner Brennan Poole has signed on to run a partial schedule with Team BCR Racing in 2015.

The new union will begin in February at Daytona Int’l Speedway where the team picked up their first win of the 2014 season in the Lucas Oil 200. Poole began his ARCA Racing Series career in 2011, winning at Salem Speedway in his series debut. The 23-year-old driver went onto win five more races most recently at Kentucky Speedway in 2014. Poole had driven for Venturini Motorsports. The agreement calls for a minimum of 10 races in 2015. If additional funding is secured, the team will plan to run for the 2015 Championship.-ARCA Racing

Chris Buescher leads the first practice session for the Nationwide Series O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.

The lap of 186.085 mph in the No. 60 Bit O Honey Ford Mustang was best of the 40 cars out on the track for this session. No. 22 Joey Logano, No. 6 Trevor Bayne, No. 33 Austin Dillon and No. 2 Brian Scott are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Carlos Contreras in the No. 87 Chevrolet Camaro was the slowest.
Oct 31 - 2:03 PM

Clint Bowyer is riding a four-race, top-15 streak at Texas. His best result in the past four races was a sixth in fall 2012 and his worst was a 15th the following spring.

Expanding the parameters a little shows the same kind of consistency. Bowyer finished 17th in the 2012 Samsung Mobile 500 and that is the only other time in the past eight races he finished outside the top 10. If he fits a niche on your roster, start him with confidence.
Oct 31 - 11:41 AM

JJ Yeley will make his third start on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track for BK Racing this week at Texas. His previous two races with them ended in a 29th at Kansas and a 38th at Charlotte.

The priorities for this team might not match up with fantasy players. They need to figure out where the strengths and weaknesses for the program lie and that might turn the AAA 500 into a test session.
Oct 31 - 11:19 AM

The AAA 500 should be one of Greg Biffle’s best opportunities to score a late-year top-five and be one of the best fantasy values in nearly every game. In his last 12 attempts on this track, his worst finish was a 12th and his best was a victory in spring 2012.

Nearly 60 percent of those starts ended in top-fives and his average since fall 2008 has been a respectable sixth. He has struggled off and on this year and might fly under most fantasy players’ radar screens, which makes him one of this week’s best differentiators.
Oct 31 - 11:06 AM

Reed Sorenson has been gradually improving on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2014. His first three starts at Vegas, Texas, and Kansas were in the 30s; his latest five attempts all ended in the mid- to high-20s.

Sorenson’s best finish was a 26th in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas, which puts him on the cusp of scoring a top-25. He has also shown the greatest improvement on average from his starting position to finish, so he could be one of this week’s hidden fantasy gems.
