In the midst of his 14th season in the series, Harvick has earned 26 wins, 111 top fives, 226 top-10 finishes and 14 pole awards. This weekend the No. 4 Budweiser Chevrolet SS will feature a special 500th start logo on the hood, under the right taillight and on the base of the b-post in recognition of the milestone.

Ryan Blaney has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in Happy Hour practice for the Camping World Truck Series WinStar World Casino 350K at Texas Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 174.845 mph in the No. 29 Ford F-150 was best of the five trucks that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. No. 51 Kyle Busch (173.148 mph), No. 19 Tyler Reddick (172.060), No. 99 Bryan Silas (171.971) and No. 20 Brennan Newberry (170.689) are the others on this list.

Johnny Sauter is fastest in Happy Hour for the Camping World Truck Series WinStar World Casino 350K at Texas Motor Speedway.

At 180.186 mph in the No. 98 Smokey Mountain/Curb Records Toyota Tundra, he was the fastest of the 30 trucks out on the track for the final practice. Sauter also led the first practice earlier today. No. 13 Jeb Burton, No. 17 Timothy Peters, No. 51 Kyle Busch and No. 88 Matt Crafton are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 0 Caleb Roark was the slowest.

Kevin Harvick is another driver, along with Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards, who effectively need a victory to advance to the Championship round of the playoffs. He won the most recent event on this track type at Charlotte.

Harvick blew an engine early in the Duck Commander 500 this spring and that came on the heels of a 41st-place finish at Vegas. Since then, he has finished worse than 12th only one time in the last seven similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races.

Carl Edwards has a nine-race, top-20 streak on this track type with all but three of those results ending in top-10s.

Unfortunately, the Duck Commander 500 at Texas was not one of the races in which he finished among the top 10. He was 14th in that event and needs to improve in order to climb out of the points’ hole that 20th-place finish at Martinsville created.
Oct 30 - 6:17 PM

Cole Whitt has been hovering around the 30th-place mark on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Most of his results ended in the 27th- to 36th-place range with one very solid result at Kansas. He finished 23rd in the Hollywood Casino 400.

That race was difficult on tires and witnessed a lot of attrition. Whitt’s ability to save his rubber makes him more attractive than many of the other rookies.
Oct 30 - 6:06 PM

Jeff Gordon finished second in the Duck Commander 500 this spring and he has been second in two of the last three races on this track type this season. He finished that well at Chicagoland and Charlotte.

During his career, Texas has not been one of his better tracks, but this spring’s success will make the team hopeful. A solid top-five may be enough to give him the points needed to advance to the Championship round at Homestead.
Oct 30 - 6:01 PM

Alex Bowman has been remarkably consistent on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. In nine events to date, he has finished between 30th and 37th in each race.

Bowman’s best result came in the most recent race at Charlotte where he finished 30th after qualifying 33rd. Last week, he was 29th at Martinsville and he would like to record another finish in the 20s to show that he is continuing to improve.
Oct 30 - 6:00 PM

For the second time in the Chase, Brad Keselowski is basically in a must-win situation if he wants to advance to the final round of the playoffs. If he wins to advance, he will have recorded victories in each of the Chase segments.

Keselowski has three wins on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but in the remaining six events, he has only one other top-10. No one wants to count him out, but he has a steep hill to climb.
Oct 30 - 5:46 PM

Michael McDowell and the Leavine Family Racing team are back in the field for another attempt on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. This will be their eighth attempt in 10 races.

McDowell failed to qualify at Atlanta, but he was a decent value the last time he raced on this track type at Charlotte. He finished 29th in the Bank of America 500 and performed well at his salary cap.
Oct 30 - 5:45 PM

Matt Kenseth needs to regain the form on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks that he showed at the beginning of the season. In his first seven attempts on this track type, he swept the top 10, but his latest two attempts ended in a 13th at Kansas and a 19th at Charlotte.

Texas is a good place for him to recover. In his last 18 races on this track, he finished worse than 12th only one time. His most recent of two victories came in spring 2011.

Johnny Sauter leads the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session at Texas Motor Speedway.

He ran a quick lap of 180.114 mph in the No. 98 Smokey Mountain/Curb Records Toyota Tundra. No. 17 Timothy Peters, No. 13 Jeb Burton, No. 20 Brennan Newberry and No. 54 Darrell Wallace Jr. round out the top five of the 24 trucks practicing for the WinStar World Casino 350K. Adam Edwards in the No. 57 Chevrolet Silverado was the slowest.
Oct 30 - 4:27 PM

Veteran racer Donnie Neuenberger has signed to drive the No. 40 Toyota Camry for Carter 2 Motorsports in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season opener at Daytona in February.

Neuenberger has not only made several ARCA Racing Series starts, he is also a veteran of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Sprint Cup series. He has made four previous ARCA Racing Series starts, his most recent coming this past season at Talladega. In his effort, he piloted the No. 40 Freedom Transport Dodge to a 30th place finish, after experiencing a minor issue at the start of the race. His career best finish came in 2012 at Talladega, where he finished 18th place. Neuenberger has made 63 starts across NASCAR’s three national touring series, the most coming in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.-ARCA Racing

A week after watching his nephew make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Martinsville, Carlos Contreras will exchange a radio for a steering wheel and compete in Saturday's O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.

More importantly, Contreras' start on Saturday will reach a huge milestone for the Hispanic racer. By taking the green flag in the final stretch of the NASCAR Nationwide Series season, Contreras will have competed in 100 national series races across the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the NASCAR Nationwide Series, dating back to 1999. RaceTrac will adorn the hood of the #87 Chevy Camaro as the primary marketing partner in Contreras' 13th race of the season.(Rick Ware Racing)-jayski.com
