Sprint Cup driver Denny Hamlin (#11 Toyota Camry) won the Hisense 300, his 15th victory in 154 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is the #18 Hisense USA Toyota Camry driver's first NXS victory and first top-10 finish in 2016. It is his first victory and seventh top-10 finish in 11 NXS races at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS). Austin Dillon (second) posted his fifth top-10 finish in seven NXS races at CMS. Joey Logano (third) posted his eighth top-10 finish in 12 NXS races at CMS. Brandon Jones (seventh) was the highest finishing rookie. Daniel Suarez leads the point standings by 14 points over Elliott Sadler.

Martin Truex Jr.’s dominance of the Coca-Cola 600 weekend continued in final practice. He posted the fastest single lap in that session after setting the quickest 10 consecutive laps in Saturday morning’s session and winning the pole on Thursday night.

Truex may not win the race, but he should easily be one of the best fantasy values in any game. He is poised to repeat his Texas Motor Speedway and Kansas Speedway performance. In those games, he earned the most points in salary cap games.

Jimmie Johnson posted the second-quickest lap in Saturday morning’s practice session with a speed of 186.076 set during his first 10 laps on the circuit.

Johnson rolls off the grid seventh and has a knack for Charlotte that should allow him to race with the leaders most of the afternoon/evening. He has not been the same dominant driver fantasy owners have come to expect, however, and is unlikely to lead a lot of laps early or to set many fastest laps.

Martin Truex Jr. posted the quickest time in Saturday morning’s practice for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. His 10-lap average speed of 186.625 mph came in his first 10 laps on the track.

Truex rolls off the pole and this balance of long-run speed with that track position is going to allow him to record some early laps led. That should factor into the decision to start him in most fantasy games.

Kurt Busch posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session of the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. His top speed of 191.002 was the only one to break the 191 mark.

Busch was also fast in the first practice session, but failed to back that up with a pole. In fact, the failed to make the final round of qualification and rolls off the grid 13th.

Daniel Suarez (#19 ARRIS Toyota Camry) had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 178.085 mph was best of the 16 cars that ran at least 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. #18 Denny Hamlin, #2 Austin Dillon, #20 Erik Jones and #42 Kyle Larson are the rest of the top five on this list.
May 26 - 8:47 PM

Ty Dillon (#3 Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Chevrolet Camaro) tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

He ran a fast lap of 181.342 mph. #19 Daniel Suarez, #20 Erik Jones, #2 Austin Dillon and #48 Brennan Poole round out the top-five of the 40 cars out on the track. The #74 Dodge driven by Mike Harmon was the slowest in the final practice session.
May 26 - 8:44 PM

Joey Logano posted the fastest time in the first two rounds of Thursday’s qualification, but slipped to second in the final round that determined the pole. He will line up to the outside of Martin Truex Jr. for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Logano was stellar in both qualifications last year with an outside pole in this race and a third-place start in the fall. He won the fall race, but slipped to 13th at the end of the Coke 600.
May 26 - 8:26 PM

Martin Truex Jr. recorded a lap of 192.328 mph to edge Joey Logano’s 192.007. Truex will lead the field to green on Sunday.

Truex dominated earlier this season at Texas Motor Speedway and Kansas Speedway before late-race mistakes sent him home with only a modest result. He was one of the best fantasy values in those games, however.
May 26 - 8:12 PM

Kurt Busch will roll off the grid 13th in the Coke 600 after failing to advance to the final 12 in the second round of qualification. His lap of 190.114 mph was nearly 0.012 seconds slower than Chase Elliott.

Busch has a current streak of six top-10s, so it seems likely that he will add a few place-differential points to his finishing total.
May 26 - 7:59 PM

Matt Kenseth was one of several notable drivers who failed to advance to the final round of qualification. His time was only good enough to 27th on the starting grid.

Kenseth has some momentum on his side with a Dover International Speedway victory last week. The good news is that he should earn positive place-differential points in games that offer them.
May 26 - 7:46 PM

Dale Earnhardt Jr. failed to advance to the second round of qualification and will roll off the grid 25th for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600.

This is the first time in nine races in which Earnhardt has failed to crack the top 25 in qualification, but his strong starts have not ended in strong finishes very often. He has only one top-10 finish in the past six attempts.
May 26 - 7:40 PM

Daniel Suarez (#19 ARRIS Toyota Camry) had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the first practice for the XFINITY Series Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

His average of 175.708 mph was best of the three cars that ran at least 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. #2 Austin Dillon (173.709 mph) and #16 Ryan Reed (172.642 mph) are the others on this list.
May 26 - 5:05 PM

Erik Jones (#20 GameStop Toyota Camry) led the first practice session for the XFINITY Series Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The lap of 181.159 mph was the best of the 40 cars completing laps in this session. #18 Denny Hamlin, #12 Ryan Blaney, #19 Daniel Suarez and #3 Ty Dillon are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. Spencer Gallagher in the #21 Chevrolet Camaro was the slowest.
May 26 - 5:03 PM

Kurt Busch posted the fastest single lap in the first practice for the Coke 600 with a speed of 192.843 mph. That makes him one of the favorites to win this week’s pole. Qualification will be held Thursday night.

Even though the race is 600 miles, track position early makes a difference. More importantly, the pole winner gets the coveted first pit stall, which often makes a difference on the final stop of the evening.
