Ruben Garcia Jr. took a 1:15.206 minute lap on board the No. 88 Farmacias del Ahorro Toyota in qualification to win the pole for the NASCAR Peak Mexico Series (NPMS) Difrenosa 120 at Mexico's Autodromo Monterrey.

The HDI Racing Team driver was the fastest of the 29-car lineup for Sunday's season-opener. Ruben Rovelo (No. 28 Toyota) will share the front row with Garcia. Rogelio Lopez (No. 6 Toyota) was third fastest.

For the fourth consecutive time in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, Todd Gilliland will be the first under the green flag.

Turning the quickest lap of the day at 18.054 seconds [99.701 mph], the reigning West Series champion bested Bill McAnally Racing teammate Chris Eggleston by only 0.006 seconds to earn the 21 Means 21 Pole Award at Irwindale Speedway. The result stands as the ninth pole for the Sherrills Ford, North Carolina native and third straight to start the 2017 season.

Michael Self was the man in charge at Irwindale Speedway, as the No. 9 Sunrise Ford/Eibach Springs/Lucas Oil Ford topped practice for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West.

Ripping around the half-mile in 18.097 seconds [99.464 mph], the six-time series winner bested his Sunrise Ford Racing teammate Julia Landauer by 0.220 seconds. Landauer posted the second-best overall time at an 18.317, as she finished second in both sessions. Chris Eggleston was third best followed by last week's winner Todd Gilliland and Nicole Behar.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kyle Larson, driving the No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro, won the Service King 300, his sixth victory in 94 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is his first victory and third top-10 NXS finish in 2017. It is his second victory and fifth top-10 finish in five NXS races at Auto Club Speedway (ACS). Cup driver Joey Logano (second) posted his ninth top-10 finish in nine NXS races at ACS and his second top-10 NXS finish in 2017. Cup driver Kyle Busch (third) posted his 15th top-10 finish in 18 NXS races at ACS. William Byron (fifth) was the highest finishing rookie. Elliott Sadler (finished seventh) leads the point standings by 17 points over William Byron.
Mar 25 - 8:48 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Auto Club 400 with a speed of 187.480 mph.

Elliott was second-fastest in the first session. The team seems to have found whatever they lacked on Friday. He rolls off the grid from the seventh row, which puts him in a bit of a sweet spot in terms of place-differential potential. Elliott should move up and combine points for a top-10 finish with those for advancement. With a little luck, Elliott will contend for the win.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Joey Logano, driving the No. 22 America's Tire/Discount Tire Ford Mustang, won the Coors Light Pole Award for today's Service King 300 with a lap of 182.556 mph.

This is his 32nd pole in 161 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races. It is his first pole and second top-10 NXS start in 2017 and his fourth pole in nine NXS races at Auto Club Speedway (ACS). Daniel Hemric (second) posted his fourth top-10 start of 2017 and his first at ACS. Cup regular Erik Jones (third) posted his third top-10 NXS start at ACS and his second in three NXS races this season.

Jimmie Johnson posted the second quickest 10-lap average behind rookie Erik Jones in Saturday morning’s practice session with a lap of 182.874 mph.

Johnson is going to need that long run speed in order to move up through the field. He spun and damaged his car in practice one, was forced into a backup, and did not clear inspection in time to post a qualification lap. He starts 37th, but should be able to contend for at least a top-10.
Mar 25 - 1:16 PM

With less than two minutes remaining in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Auto Club 400, David Ragan slammed the wall hard in turns three and four and flattened the right side.

Ragan will definitely need to go to a backup car and give up his 27th position on the grid. Last year, he started 35th for BK Racing and climbed to 22nnd.
Mar 25 - 1:10 PM

Chase Elliott had the second fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Auto Club 400 with a speed of 186.843 mph.

That means he finally found some speed in his Chevrolet. He was only 12th fastest in Friday’s practice and missed advancing to the final round of time trials for the first time this season; he qualified 13th. He was not particularly strong during long runs with the 12th-quickest time, but the No. 24 team still has one session to work on that.
Mar 25 - 1:10 PM

Erik Jones posted the fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Auto Club 400 with a speed of 187.251. He was reportedly quick in 10 lap averages as well.

Jones qualified 14th for the race and that puts him close enough to the top 10 that he should be able to establish himself with the leaders. Jones should be considered a favorite to score his second consecutive top-10 in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
Mar 25 - 12:35 PM

Kevin Harvick slapped the wall fairly hard with less than 10 minutes remaining in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Auto Club 400.

If they can repair this car, that is probably Plan A. Harvick was sixth on the speed chart at the time and qualified seventh. He will not want to give up that track position.
Mar 25 - 12:22 PM

Martin Truex Jr. has alternately struggled, prospered, and finished modestly in his past three years on two-mile tracks. Last year, he ended with an average of 21.3.

Truex had a best finish of 23rd in 2014 on the combined two-milers and then swept the top 10 in 2015. It is difficult to predict this week’s finish from those stats, but his result in the 2017 Auto Club 400 should be an indicator of how he will run for the remainder of the season.
Mar 25 - 11:55 AM

Trevor Bayne will mostly likely finish somewhere in the high-teens or low 20s, if his Roush-Fenway Racing record on two-milers is an indication.

Bayne’s last four efforts with his current team ended in results of 15th through 24th on this track type. In two starts before that, he was 29th at Auto Club and ninth at Michigan. This organization has some momentum and that should hopefully land him on the high side of that range.
Mar 25 - 11:55 AM

Cole Whitt has made nine previous starts on two-mile tracks and all of them have ended with positive place-differential points.

Whitt was a great value in last year’s Auto Club 400. He qualified 36th and finished 26th, which added 10 place-differential points to his total. In 2015, his 24th-place finish was preceded by a 32nd-place qualification effort.
Mar 25 - 11:54 AM

Rafael Martínez (No. 18 Canel's Toyota) was the fastest in the first practice session for Sunday's NASCAR Peak Mexico Series season-opening Difrenosa 120 at Mexico's Autodromo Monterrey.

He had a fast lap of 1:15.891 minutes. No. 6 Rogelio Lopez, No. 28 Ruben Rovelo, No. 77 Xavy Razo and No. 88 Ruben Garcia are the rest of the top-five. Julio Cesar Villalobos in the No. 78 was the slowest of the 32 cars out on the track for this session.
