Chase Elliott posted the quickest 10-lap average in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Citizen Soldier 400 at Dover International Speedway among Chase contenders.

His average of 156.379 mph came during his first 10 laps on the track. Even though this session was altered by a light mist, Elliott’s 10-lap average is interesting. It shows he is capable of driving in loose conditions, which is going to be important on Sunday as the track rubbers up.
Oct 1 - 12:23 PM

Paul Menard posted the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice session for the Citizen Soldier 400 at Dover International Speedway. He went 158.850 mph in his first 10 laps on track Saturday morning.

With two top-10s in his last five Dover starts and an 11th there in the spring. This makes him a compelling dark horse with a very affordable salary cap in most games.
Oct 1 - 12:18 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the second fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Citizen Soldier 400 at Dover International Speedway with a speed of 158.772 mph Saturday morning.

Rain interrupted this session about 15 minutes from the end and a persistent mist creates some confusion for fantasy owners. He was eighth on the grid overall.
Oct 1 - 11:54 AM

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in Dover’s second practice session. His top speed of 158.898 mph Saturday morning was seventh overall.

Larson has the best average finish over the past six races on this track and statistically is one of this week’s top choices.
Oct 1 - 11:45 AM

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session of the weekend at Dover International Speedway for the Citizen Soldier 400. His top speed was 160.514 mph.

Gordon led a contingent of six non-Chase contending drivers at the top of the chart. Rain plagued this session and might have made the Chasers a little more conservative.

Jimmie Johnson has 10 Dover wins, which is the most among active and inactive drivers alike.

Getting double-digit wins on a NASCAR track in the Modern Era is almost impossible, so this should factor heavily in his handicap. Johnson’s last two Dover attempts were marred by a broken rear seal in this race last year and crash damage in the spring. Prior to that, he won three of four races and finished third, so he has to still be considered a favorite.

The AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway this June ran counter course for Matt DiBenedetto. In both 2015 races, he started and finished in the 30s in a 43-car field. This spring, he finished last in 40th.

DiBenedetto sustained crash damage and retired on lap 116, however, so that race should be eliminated from the handicapping formula. Expect the No. 83 to finish in the mid-30s and plan accordingly.
Oct 1 - 9:51 AM

Chase Elliott had a chance to win the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway this spring in his inaugural attempt on this track. He finished third after starting 13th.

Elliott lost the opportunity to catch Matt Kenseth this June when he got to racing Kyle Larson too hard at the end of show. He starts a little closer to the front this week in ninth and had a solid first practice, but he needs to be conservative to avoid catastrophe and that could ultimate impact his finish.

Justin Haley and Kyle Benjamin led the way as NASCAR's youth movement conquered the "Monster Mile." It was Haley who lifted the big championship trophy at Dover International Speedway, while Benjamin took the final NASCAR K&N Pro Series East checkered flag of 2016.

Haley brought home the No. 5 Off Axis Chevrolet with a fourth-place finish in the Dover 125 to put the finishing touches on his first championship season. The 17-year-old from Winamac, Indiana, put together a title-winning run with remarkable consistency. His Dover finish was his 13th top five in 14 races. He collected two wins along the way, with a worst finish of eighth-place, to claim the crown over Benjamin by 22 points.

Kyle Benjamin dominated the Dover 125 Friday en route to his third NASCAR K&N Pro Series East win of the season.

Justin Haley and Kyle Benjamin led the way as NASCAR's youth movement conquered the "Monster Mile." It was Haley who lifted the big championship trophy at Dover International Speedway, while Benjamin took the final NASCAR K&N Pro Series East checkered flag of 2016. Benjamin did everything he could in his No. 40 Ranier Racing with MDM Chevrolet. The 19-year-old NASCAR Next alum from Easley, South Carolina, led the most laps (84) and won for the third time on the season. A late caution pushed the race to 126 laps, but Benjamin was able to pull away from the field on the green-white-checkered finish to secure the victory.
