Kevin Harvick dominated all three qualification sessions at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and grabbed the pole for Sunday’s Brickyard 400 with a speed of 188.470 mph. Harvick also set a new track record of 188.889 mph, which was set in the first round of time trials

Two of the last six Brickyard 400s have been won from the pole including last year’s race by Ryan Newman. Track position is incredibly important at Indy, so this improves Harvick’s fantasy odds. Equally important, Harvick has finished first or second in the last five races in which he started first.

Matt Crafton, David Stremme, and Brett Moffitt are the three drivers who failed to qualify for the Crown Royal 400.

Fantasy owners need to make certain that these drivers are not on their roster. Moffitt was considered to be a dark horse contender to finish in the top 30, so he showed some fantasy relevance before his DNQ (Did Not Qualify).

Aric Almirola slapped the wall hard in the first qualification session for the Crown Royal 400 and retired for the afternoon. He will be forced to take an owner’s provisional to get into the race and will start at the back of the grid.

Things have not gone particularly well for Almirola since making a claim for his spot in the Chase with a victory at Daytona. Last week he finished 23rd after starting mid pack in 19th, so his odds of finishing well this week are not very good.

Alex Labbe (No. 72 Dodge) is at the top of the speed chart in the final practice leading to the Canadian Tire Series National 250 at Autodrome St-Eustache (Quebec).

His car was listed as 42nd on the chart.

Jul 26 - 12:30 PM

Justin Boston started the No. 25 Toyota 6th in the lineup for Friday night's SCOTT Get Geared Up 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway.

He took the lead on Lap 118, stayed there for 40 laps and was out front with a six second lead when Bobby Gerhart spun in turn two. Boston said he didn’t know the caution came out and, by the time he found out, he had locked up the brakes and hit Gerhart. Both cars drove away, but the damage was enough to ruin Boston’s night. He still managed an 8th place finish in what could have been a victory.

Juan Pablo Montoya posted the fastest speed in final practice for the Crown Royal 400 among drivers not running full time in NASCAR Cup competition. His top speed was 187.688 mph, which placed him sixth on the chart.

As a part time driver, Montoya is cheap in salary cap games and a solid choice in Yahoo!’s Group C. His speed was only 25/100th of a second better than Trevor Bayne in the No. 21 Wood Bros ride, however, and the battle for part time supremacy should come down to these two drivers.
Jul 26 - 12:08 PM

Cody Coughlin finishes 11th in Friday night's ARCA Racing Series race at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Indiana.

Jul 26 - 11:59 AM

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap among the rookie class in final practice for the Crown Royal 400 on Saturday. His top speed was 187.013 mph, which placed him eighth on that grid.

Larson was one of this week’s dark horse choices to win his first race at Indy and he has not done anything to cause fantasy owners to rethink that position. Even if he fails to find Victory Lane, he will be a good value if he can achieve a top-10 finish.
Jul 26 - 11:41 AM

Brad Keselowski posted the second fastest single lap in final practice for the Crown Royal 400. His top speed was 188.494 mph.

Keselowski’s speed was more than two-tenths of a second slower than Jimmie Johnson, but race trim is a great equalizer. Kevin Harvick (188.363) with Hendrick Motorsports power under his hood, Jeff Gordon (187.856), and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (187.758) rounded out the top five, which suggests Sunday’s race could come down to a battle between these teams.
Jul 26 - 11:23 AM

Only three drivers ran 10 or more laps in final practice for the Crown Royal 400, but Brian Vickers posted the quickest average speed. He went 182.549 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

Most drivers and teams worked primarily on qualification trim in the abbreviated final session, so Vickers effort is significant not only for its speed but also because it suggests this team might be better prepared for long runs on Sunday.
