Noah Gragson (No. 18 Safelite Autoglass® Toyota Tundra) heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway for stop two on the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule.

In last year’s race at Atlanta, the rookie driver overcame an early spin to post a 14th-place finish in his first mile-and-a-half start for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM). Gragson’s crew chief, Rudy Fugle, called the shots for Christopher Bell’s win in the Truck Series event at Atlanta last year. The 2018 Truck Series season opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway was unkind to Gragson and the No. 18 team. After getting caught up in two separate incidents, the Safelite Tundra headed to the garage after completing just 79 of the 100 laps and was relegated to a 23rd-place finish.

Ryan Blaney enters this week’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 with five consecutive results of 11th or better on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

Moving into Team Penske equipment, there is no reason to believe he is going to slow down any, so he should be one of the drivers to start this week. Currently, 29 percent of NASCAR Fantasy Live players have activated him for good reason.

Clint Bowyer scored seven consecutive top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, which led him all the way to the playoffs.

Bowyer finished 11th or better in his first four tries on "cookie-cutter" courses—including an 11th at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Unfortunately, that is his only top-20 on this track in the past four years. Bowyer lost his momentum at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the fall, however, and needs to reclaim it in order to make a run for the playoffs.

Jeffrey Earnhardt has made 17 starts on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks during his career with a best result of 26th.

His career-best of 26th on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks came on two occasions: at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2016 and last year at Kansas Speedway. His best effort at Atlanta was only a 33rd in last year’s QuikTrip 500.
Feb 22 - 11:05 AM

In 10 starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks last year, Kyle Larson finished second four times.

One of these came in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. His next two starts on the track type also ended in runner-up finishes, which must have made him feel like the perennial bridesmaid. Of course, that was better than the pair of results that ended his season. Larson finished 39th with engine failure at Kansas Speedway last fall to knock him out of the playoffs and he was 37th following an accident at Texas Motor Speedway.
Feb 22 - 11:04 AM

Paul Menard recorded an average finish of 21.7 on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks last year in his final season with Richard Childress Racing.

By contrast, his current team finished with a 10.3 while Ryan Blaney was racing with the Wood Bros. Spilt the difference and fantasy owners can expect a result somewhere in the high-teens for Menard at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Michael Annett’s best NXS finish at AMS is 10th, coming in September 2012.

He has been very consistent at Atlanta, completing all but 10 of the 1,138 laps run in his six NXS starts. In his last start at AMS, Annett raced to a solid 15th place finish. In the season’s first race at Daytona, Annett spent a considerable amount of time in the top 10 before being collected in a lap-106 crash. The No. 5 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet was ultimately scored in the 37th position.JR Motorsports

Following his win at Daytona, Tyler Reddick became the first driver since Regan Smith in 2012 at Homestead-Miami Speedway to win in his first start for JR Motorsports.

Reddick will make his first career NXS start at Atlanta this weekend and debut the No. 9 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Chevrolet. In six previous NXS starts at 1.5-mile tracks, he has recorded one win (Kentucky 2012), three top-five and five top-10 finishes. Reddick has made two previous starts at Atlanta in the Truck Series, recording a best finish of fifth in 2015.-JRM

Race entitlement sponsor Rinnai will also serve as primary sponsor of Justin Allgaier and the No. 7 team this weekend in Atlanta.

In seven NXS starts at Atlanta, Allgaier has one top five and three top 10s, with a best finish of fifth. He’s led a total of 30 laps at the 1.54-mile speedway. Last season at AMS, the No. 7 Chevy suffered damage in an early wreck, knocking Allgaier out of contention. On 1.5-mile tracks last season, the Illinois native earned four top-five finishes including a win at Chicagoland Speedway.-JR Motorsports
Feb 21 - 9:10 PM

In 12 NXS starts at Atlanta, Elliott Sadler (No. 1 Cessna Chevrolet) has two top-five and seven top-10 finishes.

Last season, Sadler earned regular-season points in each stage, ultimately finishing the event in fifth. Sadler’s highest finish at the 1.54-mile speedway came in September 2012 when he took the checkered flag in fourth place.-JR Motorsports

Bo LeMastus will pilot the No. 54 Toyota Tundra in Atlanta.

LeMastus on Atlanta... "I'm ready to get to Atlanta and see what we can do with this Tundra. I hate that we got caught up in an incident last weekend, but that's superspeedway racing. This weekend will be our first chance to work together as a team on a 1.5-mile track. We are ready to get down there and get to work." DGR-CROSLEY is a Mooresville, N.C., based organization operating under the leadership of former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver, David Gilliland and Bo LeMastus, DGR-CROSLEY is a driver development team competing in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, ARCA Racing Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.-Spire Sports Inc.

Erik Jones has earned three top-10s and finished outside the top 30 three times in 12 starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

That makes Jones and all or nothing proposition this week on the 1.5-mile Atlanta Motor Speedway. He should not be used in games where he is among the most expensive options, but if he fits the final slot of your roster, he can easily get slotted in.
Feb 21 - 6:00 PM

Chris Buescher scored his first career top-10 on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series last year with a sixth at Kansas Speedway.

With that as a potential high point, fantasy owners can be very happy with the remainder of his finishes on this track type. They ranged from 16th to 27th in a fairly narrow and predictable band. His overall average on "cookie-cutter" tracks last year was slightly better than 20th.
Feb 21 - 6:00 PM

Seven of Michael McDowell’s 10-best similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track finishes came last year with Leavine Family Racing, including his best-ever 11th at Kansas Speedway in May.

McDowell should be in similar equipment this week and that should make him fantasy relevant if he can score another top-25, but only if he qualifies in the high-20s so that he can add some place-differential points.
Feb 21 - 5:59 PM

Martin Truex Jr. is the new king of the "cookie-cutter" tracks with six wins on this course type in 2017.

Those six victories represent 40 percent of his total and if one includes Homestead-Miami Speedway in the mix despite its unique shape, he is closer to .500. Regardless of whether that is counted as part of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, Truex won last year’s championship by being the master of the 1.5-milers. And yet, his best finish of third at Atlanta Motor Speedway came nearly five years ago in fall 2013.
