Canadian Tire regular (No. 27 Dodge) Andrew Ranger is fastest in Happy Hour for the Camping World Truck Series Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

At 109.614 mph in the No. 53 MOPAR/Inoxsan RAM, he was the fastest of the 27 trucks out on the track for the final practice. No. 77 German Quiroga, No. 00 Cole Custer, No. 29 Ryan Blaney and No. 20 Gray Gaulding are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 10 Caleb Roark was the slowest.

Kasey Kahne will race chassis 5-820 in Sunday night’s Oral-B USA 500. It has been raced three times so far this year.

This car was raced most recently at Kentucky where it finished eighth. Kahne was not so lucky at Auto Club where he finished 41st, but he lost more than 25 laps attending to a broken rear end.

Landon Cassill was forced to take a provisional to start the Oral-B USA 500. He will roll of the grid 42nd on Sunday night.

In games that offer place-differential points, however, he could be a good value. He started 43rd on another unrestricted, intermediate speedway at Michigan two weeks ago and finished 29th. In 24 races this year, he has the fifth-best average improvement during a race after starting 35.3 and finishing 31.2.

Austin Dillon will drive chassis No. 465 at Atlanta. It was previously raced at Kentucky, Charlotte, and Texas.

Dillon finished 16th in Kentucky and Charlotte. He was 21st at Texas, and if he can score solid finish in the top-20s this week, he will be a good fantasy value. His 13th-place qualification effort for the Oral-B USA 500 gives him good track position when the green flag waves.

Casey Mears has been a consistently solid performer on unrestricted, intermediate speedways in 2014. Six of eight races on similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks have ended in results of 26th or better.

That will not make Mears an anchor to any roster, but he could provide a good value as the final selection if he fits a fantasy players’ budget. His latest two races on this track type at Kentucky and Michigan ended in top-20s with a best of 17th in the Pure Michigan 400.
Aug 30 - 1:21 PM

Jeff Gordon will drive chassis No. 24-861 in the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta this week. This car has been raced four times previously in 2014.

Gordon finished sixth with this chassis in the spring Michigan race, seventh at Charlotte and Darlington, and 13th at Auto Club. The pavement at Atlanta is similar to what he faced in California, but Gordon has finished in the top 10 in every other race on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks, so he should be viewed as a favorite to do so again.

AJ Allmendinger could be poised to earn his fourth consecutive top-15 finish this week at Atlanta. On another unrestricted, intermediate speedway two weeks ago, he started 22nd and finished 12th in the Pure Michigan 400.

He went the full distance in that race, but it was only the third time this year he did so on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks. The good news is that one of his other complete races came at Auto Club and its surface is nearly as abrasive as that in Atlanta.

After finishing outside the top 10 in five consecutive races from Daytona through Watkins Glen, Jimmie Johnson is beginning to regain his momentum. He finished ninth at Michigan and fourth at Bristol.

Johnson had to overcome problems in both of those races. He had a broken shifter lever at Michigan and a speeding penalty at Bristol, and since he persevered, that will add to the confidence of the team. He will need that since he qualified modestly for the Oral-B USA 500 in 16th.
Aug 30 - 1:15 PM

Paul Menard will drive a battle-tested chassis No. 454 at Atlanta. This car was previously run in four of the five similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races as well as Michigan.

Menard has earned top-five finishes at Las Vegas and Michigan and two more top-10s at Texas and Charlotte with this chassis, but he has never had to come from this deep in the pack. In fact, his 33rd-place qualification effort is the worst of the season and that makes him a questionable value for Sunday.

J.R. Fitzpatrick (No. 84 Equipment Express/Autism Speaks Chevrolet) leads the first practice for the Canadian Tire Series Clarington 200 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

His 105.080 mph lap was the quickest of the 30 cars out on the track for the first practice session. No. 47 L.P. Dumoulin, No. 24 Luc Lesage, No. 02 Kerry Micks and No. 17 D.J. Kennington are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 19 Brad Graham was the slowest.
Aug 30 - 1:08 PM

German Quiroga leads the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

He ran a quick lap of 108.967 mph in the No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra. No. 9 Brennan Newberry, No. 19 Alex Tagliani, No. 20 Gray Gaulding and No. 13 Jeb Burton round out the top five of the 26 trucks practicing for the Chevrolet Silverado 250. Jennifer Jo Cobb in the No. 10 RAM was the slowest.
Aug 30 - 12:53 PM

Ryan Newman will race chassis No. 441 at Atlanta. It was previously raced at Kentucky, where it finished third after starting seventh.

Newman is one of two drivers along with Matt Kenseth who are probably safe to make the Chase based on points, so he should run a conservative race. His fourth-place qualification effort, however, gives him track position that if maintained could result in another top-five for this chassis.

Justin Allgaier will make his sixth start on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile courses this week and he is seeking his first top-20 on this track type.

Allgaier has come close enough to the top 20 in a couple of races to make the No. 51 a good fantasy value. He finished 24th at Texas and Kentucky. This week he rolls off the grid 31st and will need to avoid trouble early in heavy traffic.
Aug 30 - 11:53 AM

If Kurt Busch finishes in the top 10 this week at Atlanta, it will be the first time since March that he posted consecutive finishes of that magnitude.

Qualifying 22nd, he would seem to have his work cut out for him, but that is precisely where he started at Martinsville. He won that race and recorded his only consecutive top-10s of the season following a third at Auto Club.
Aug 30 - 11:52 AM

Denny Hamlin hopes that a 42nd-place finish in the Quaker State 400 stopped a downward spiral on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. His first four efforts—in order—ended in a 12th at Vegas, 13th at Texas, 18th at Kansas, and 22nd at Charlotte.

The poor finish at Kentucky may have reset his season. Four of his next five races ended in results of 12th or better. He slipped a little at Michigan to finish 16th and was crashed by Kevin Harvick while leading last week’s Irwin Tools Night Race.
