D.J. Kennington: 4th at CTMP, 4th in points 05-22-2018
D.J. Kennington
D.J. Kennington (No. 17 Castrol Edge Dodge) finished third in Sunday's NASCAR Pinty's Series season-opening Clarington 200 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park near Bowmanville, Ontario. He started fourth in the lineup and completed all laps of the 51-lap race. Kennington opens the season fourth in the 2018 championship standings after this event.
Ryan Newman has had a tough month + 05-22-2018
Ryan Newman
Ryan Newman has finished outside the top 25 in four of his last six attempts of 2018. Two of Newman's worst results in the past six races have come on similarly configured, 1.5-mile tracks including last week's 30th at Kansas Speedway. Newman's poor finish at Kansas was the result of crash damage, but he was not exactly in the lead pack for much of that race and that makes him a questionable value at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coke 600.
Cole Powell: Clarington 200 results 05-22-2018
Steve Grissom
Cole Powell (No. 3 Kubota/Choko Authentics Chevrolet) finished sixth in Sunday's NASCAR Pinty's Series season-opening Clarington 200 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park near Bowmanville, Ontario. He started 14th in the lineup and completed all laps of the 51-lap race. Powell opens the season sixth in the 2018 NPS driver championship standings after this event.
Timmy Hill to make second start on track type 05-22-2018
Timmy Hill
Timmy Hill will make his second 2018 attempt on a similarly configured 1.5-mile speedway in this week's Coca-Cola 600. Hill's one previous start on this track type this year came last week at Kansas Speedway. He finished 32nd in that race, which was comparable to this other starts in 2017. His best finish last year on the "cookie-cutter" tracks was a 28th at Kansas, but he also had a 29th in the Coke 600.
Jamie McMurray: 6 CLT top-15s in last 8 05-22-2018
Jamie McMurray
Jamie McMurray has scored six top-15s in his last eight attempts at Charlotte Motor Speedway. McMurray's worst finish in the last five years has been three 19th-place finishes, offset by three top-fives. His average finish of 12.3 makes him a good value on paper, but the No. 1 team has been less than stellar on unrestricted, intermediate speedways in 2018. Keep him in mind during pre-race sessions, but do not activate unless McMurray is extremely impressive in practice.
Parker Kligerman returns to Cup at Charlotte 05-22-2018
Parker Kligerman
Parker Kligerman will attempt to qualify for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to mark his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race since 2014. Kligerman made eight starts for Brandon Davis in 2014 and two starts in 2013. His career-best to date was an 18th at Texas Motor Speedway in fall 2013 and he has one other top-25 later that year at Homestead-Miami Speedway. First, however, he must qualify the No. 96 Gaunt Brother Toyota with 41 cars entered for the Coke 600.
Clint Bowyer: Charlotte has been unkind 05-22-2018
Clint Bowyer
Charlotte Motor Speedway has been less than kind to Clint Bowyer in recent years with no top-10s there in the past four seasons. Bowyer came close to earning a top-10 in fall 2015. He finished 11th in the Bank of America 500, but even that result has not been enough to raise his average to better than 18.6.
