Mason Mitchell finished third in Friday night's ARCA Racing Series ZLOOP 150.

The No. 98 Ford driver extended his point lead over Grant Enfinger to 200 points with one race remaining on the season. Enfinger left the race early with engine troubles and finished 30th. Mitchell inched closer to his first career championship with his 11th top five finish of the season. He will go to Kansas Speedway for the ARCA 98.9 on Friday, Oct. 3. "It was a solid night for us," he said. "Early on we raced pretty hard to lead a lap early and get those bonus points. I think we might have been able to go for the win there but we had a bad restart at the end."-ARCA Racing

Austin Dillon will race chassis 465 at New Hampshire, which is the same car he drove to a 24th-place finish at Atlanta.

Dillon also finished 16th with this chassis twice; those results were earned on the relatively flat Kentucky Speedway and at Charlotte. He qualified 22nd on Friday and should be considered a good bet to finish in that same range this Sunday.

Brennan Poole spun out in practice, qualified eighth and was stuck behind Venturini Motorsports’ teammate Daniel Suarez late in Friday’s ZLOOP 150.

It seemed unlikely that he would leave Kentucky Speedway with a win, but that’s just what he did, capturing his sixth career victory. "Everything just unfolded for me," a jubilant Poole said. "I love it when that happens. I’m so happy to get to victory lane for Venturini. It feels really, really nice. It’s just so special to win here. I can’t believe we won at Kentucky!" Poole wasn’t expected to race Friday, but when Venturini driver John Wes Townley had a scheduling conflict, he stepped in the seat of the No. 15 Zaxby’s Toyota. The move paid off as Poole led the final 27 laps for the win.

Andrew Ranger (No. 27 Mopar/Exide Dodge) leads the first practice for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Pinty’s 250 at Kawartha Speedway in Fraserville, Ontario.

His 75.356 mph lap was the quickest of the 22 cars out on the track for the first practice session. No. 24 James White, No. 25 Joey McColm, No. 18 Alex Tagliani and No. 3 Jason Hathaway are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 22 Scott Steckly was the slowest.

Tony Stewart posted the 26th-quickest, 10-lap average among 27 drivers who ran that long in Saturday morning’s practice session.

That put Stewart in the ballpark with Michael Annett, Landon Cassill, and Alex Bowman. Stewart’s status as even a dark horse for the Sylvania 300 must be called into question.

Greg Biffle spun off turn two at New Hampshire in final practice. He managed to keep his Ford off the wall and sustained minimal damage after going through the grass.

At the time, Biffle was 20th on the chart and undoubtedly looking for additional speed. The team now knows which direction not to take.

Corey Lajoie slapped the wall in final practice for the Sylvania 300 and flattened the right side of his car.

Lajoie is making his first Cup start and lacks experience. He took a provisional to start the race and is simply looking to record track time, which makes him a bad choice as a dark horse.

Cole Custer (No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado) wins the 21 Means 21 pole award for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series UNOH 175 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

He ran a fast lap of 131.897 mph - a new track record (previous record was held by Kyle Busch, 131.715 mph set on 9/24/2011). This is Custer's second NCWTS career pole in just seven series starts. It is his sixth top-10 start in 2014.
Sep 20 - 11:37 AM

Brian Vickers posted the quickest 10-lap average in Saturday morning’s practice session. He logged a speed of 134.401 mph from his fourth to 13th laps on the track.

Conditions were much cooler in this session than drivers will face on Sunday, but everyone had the same set of circumstances. Vickers may have a long run car and could surge at the end of the Sylvania 300.
Sep 20 - 11:37 AM

Brad Keselowski’s perfect weekend continued through New Hampshire’s Saturday morning session. He posted a lap of 135.622 mph, which was 14/100ths of a second faster than second-place Ryan Newman.

With the exception of qualifying seventh this summer in the Camping World RV Sales 301, this is the same type of performance he showed earlier in the year. He dominated that race and appears to be poised to do so again.
Sep 20 - 9:55 AM

Paul Menard will race chassis No. 485 in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It has made only one previous race this year at Richmond, where it started 14th and finished 18th.

That finish is consistent with how Menard has run most of the year on short, flat tracks. Four of his five starts at Phoenix, Martinsville, Richmond, and New Hampshire this year ended in a narrow band of results from 18th through 24th. His best result came in the STP 500 at Martinsville when he finished 10th.

Kevin Harvick qualified third for the Sylvania 300 and looks to carry the momentum of back-to-back top-fives at Chicagoland and Richmond into New Hampshire.

Harvick was also fast in the Saturday morning session with the fourth-fastest lap at the 45-minute mark. He was running second to Brad Keselowski this summer in New Hampshire’s first race before he ran out of gas on the final restart.
Sep 20 - 9:45 AM

Joey Logano will race chassis PRS-925 at New Hampshire this week. It is a brand new chassis that has not yet been raced.

This team’s backup chassis was last raced as the No. 2 at Sonoma, so there may be some similarity in their design. Short, flat tracks share handling characteristics with road courses and both Logano has been strong on both track types.

Matt Kenseth carries a three-race, top-10 New Hampshire streak and six consecutive top-15s there into the Sylvania 300. He is searching for a seventh straight finish in that range.

Kenseth posted the eighth quickest speed in Friday morning’s session, but qualified only 16th. He tends to be a long-run driver, however, and a top-10 is well in range.
Sep 20 - 9:17 AM

Chase Elliott has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the Nationwide Series Happy Hour practice for the VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 173.298 mph in the No. 9 Chevrolet Camaro was best of the 14 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 62 Brendan Gaughan, No. 60 Chris Buescher, No. 2 Brian Scott and No. 22 Michael McDowell are the rest of the top five on this list.
