Brad Keselowski posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Sylvania 300. He ended the day with a top speed of 138.421 mph.

Keselowski worked on qualification trim throughout the session because starting position is so important on this track. His victory here in July came from the seventh-place spot on the grid; his victory on another short, flat track in Richmond two weeks ago came after he won the pole.

Carl Edwards will race chassis No. RK-874 at New Hampshire in the Sylvania 300. It was last raced at Dover this spring where it started 29th and finished 14th.

Edwards finished 13th in New Hampshire’s first race, but the team apparently believes they can find a little more speed in this chassis. Dover and New Hampshire are both rhythm tracks despite the difference in degree of banking.

Michael Annett has shown consistency on short, flat tracks this season. In five races at Phoenix, Martinsville, Richmond, and New Hampshire he has scored 30-something results in every race.

Annett’s Camping World RV Sales 301 result was a 32nd, which puts him on the cusp of being fantasy relevant in some circumstances. If he qualifies in the high 30s this wee, he is liable to earn place differential points in games that offer them.

New Hampshire was host to the most top-15 streaks in 2012 with 13; last year there were 11 top-15 streaks, so Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s ninth-place finish in the Camping World RV Sales 301 is a good indication that he will score at least a top-15 in the Sylvania 300.

Stenhouse’s top-10 in the summer race is also the third time he has posted a career-best finish on this track in three races. He is trending up and that is good news for fantasy owners.

Jamie McMurray has been consistent and occasionally one of the best values on short, flat tracks this season. In five races, he has two top-10s and another two results of 16th or better.

McMurray’s best finish came in the regular season finale Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond when he crossed under the checkers fourth. That was not enough to get him into the Chase, but is should get him onto quite a few fantasy rosters.

BK Racing has made two driver changes for the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Ryan Truex has been removed from the No. 83 to be replaced by Travis Kvapil, who was scheduled to drive the No. 93. Clay Rogers will race that car on Sunday.

There is currently no news about how many races Truex might miss. In all likelihood this is an evaluation race, allowing the more experienced Kvapil to determine if there is something that needs to be changed in the car.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway is Denny Hamlin’s third-best track in terms of average finishes. In 17 starts there, he has an average of 8.9.

Hamlin’s fourth-best track is Richmond, however, and that did not keep him from finishing poorly outside the top 20 a couple of weeks ago. Watch him in Saturday’s practice and if he seems to struggle, do not hesitate to pull the plug on the No. 11.
Sep 19 - 12:36 PM

Brad Keselowski will race chassis No. PRS-906. This chassis was last raced in the Camping World RV Sales 301, which he dominated and won.

In the opening minutes of the first practice session for the Sylvania 300, Keselowski jumped to the top of the speed chart with a lap of 136.501 mph, so it appears he has not lost any horsepower or handling. He should continue to be viewed as one of the favorites to win the Sylvania 300.
