After a limited schedule last year, Petersburg, W.V.'s Codie Rohrbaugh is looking for more in 2018, starting with the 55th running of the Lucas Oil 200 Driven by General Tire Saturday at Daytona Int'l Speedway.

Rohrbaugh tested at Daytona in mid-January, coming away with the 27th fastest speed out of the 60-plus drivers who participated. "Our No. 7 Grant County Mulch Chevrolet is going to be pretty good this weekend at Daytona," said Rohrbaugh, who will make his 11th career ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards start and second at Daytona Saturday.

Using fuel mileage, Austin Dillon won last year’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but that is his only top-10 in the past two years on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

If that win is removed from his record, Dillon has an average finish of 19.5 on this track type since the beginning of the 2017 season. Eight of his 13 races ended between 13th and 17th, however, so he may fit a niche if he is rightly-priced.

Corey LaJoie has been strong recently, but only when he does not experience engine-related issues.

LaJoie has made five starts this year. He blew an engine three times, but when he was running at the end, he scored a pair of top-25s. One of these came last week in the KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas Speedway with a 24th. Fantasy players simply cannot trust that he will get to the end of 600 miles this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, however.

Jimmie Johnson has not scored a top-10 finish in his last six attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, dating back to an 11th last fall at Kansas Speedway.

If Johnson kept narrowly missing the top 10, that would be one thing, but he has three results outside the top 25 and an average of 21.8 in those six races. Until he rebounds for several consecutive weeks, he is contraindicated on fantasy rosters.

Paul Menard has been uneven on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year with two top-10s countered by a pair of results outside the top 15.

In general, the No. 21 team is performing well and Menard is a better value than he was last year. Last year’s driver Ryan Blaney was able to smooth out the peaks and valleys a little better, however. Menard’s inconsistency makes him a much more difficult pick for one’s fantasy roster.

Reed Sorenson has made two previous starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year with a best of 27th last week at Kansas Speedway.

Sorenson’s other attempt on the 1.5-milers this year ended in a 31st at Texas Motor Speedway, so it would seem to be a good bet that he could finish in the range of about 30th this week. With a full field expected, he could be a decent value if he qualifies 35th or worse and earns place-differential points to go along with his race finish points.

Niece Motorsports development driver Max McLaughlin will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut later this summer at Eldora Speedway, piloting the No. 38 Chevrolet Silverado.

In 2017, McLaughlin finished ninth in the Super DirtCar Series points and won the 2017 Most Popular Driver award. He set five fast times and broke four track records in his sophomore season on tour. He also picked up wins at both Fulton and Brewerton Speedways as well as a Triple 30 Feature at Super Dirt Week. In addition to his partial Truck Series schedule this year, McLaughlin continues to run fulltime in Big Block Modifieds for HBR team owner Al Heinke.

Kurt Busch had a even-race streak of top-10 finishes at Charlotte Motor Speedway come to an end last fall in the Bank of America 500 when he slipped to 22nd.

Busch’s average finish in the seven previous races was 7.0. Even with that poor result last fall, he now has eight top-15s in the last 10 races at Charlotte. The down side of starting him is not very great, but he must be rightly-priced to be a good value. Only two of his last 10 attempts ended in top-fives.
May 23 - 11:53 AM

Erik Jones has finished 11th or better in his last five races on similarly configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

In the past five races on this track type, Jones’ best finish was a fifth at Texas and that is his only top-five. He remains a good value, however, because of an average finish of 8.0. If Jones fits a comfortable niche on your roster, take him with confidence.

Strengthening his relationship with California-based companies, NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Dylan Lupton (@LuptonDylan) announced today with JGL Racing that Fatal Clothing will support the team in Saturday afternoon’s Alsco 300 at Charlotte (NC) Motor Speedway.

Lupton and JGL will promote the company’s brand on a larger scale with a dynamic paint scheme for their No. 28 Ford Mustang in Lupton’s first tango with Charlotte. The Wilton, Calif. native has 33 career NASCAR XFINITY Series starts to his credit to go along with four starts in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He has a career best XFINITY Series finish of ninth which came at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course during the 2015 season.-JGL Racing

BJ McLeod’s last three Monster Energy Cup races came on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks including last week’s 35th at Kansas Speedway.

McLeod also ran in last fall’s Kansas race where he finished 30th and in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway where he finished 32nd. Those results will not make him stand out in every game, but he may be a good value in Draft Kings where his price is going to be low.

The first time Todd Gilliland climbed into an ARCA car he was just two days past his 15th birthday, not even old enough to carry a valid driver's license. Yet, when the Sherrills Ford, NC driver climbed out, he was in victory lane at Toledo Speedway, etching his name in the record books as the youngest ARCA Racing Series winner in history.

The second generation driver, who just turned 18, will now try it on a bigger stage at Charlotte Motor Speedway Thursday night. Gilliland is entered in ARCA's General Tire 150 in the No. 54 Frontline Enterprises Toyota, a car fielded out of the nearby DGR-CROSLEY race shop. As a series regular on the NASCAR Camping World Truck tour, Gilliland is just one of a handful of drivers in the General Tire 150 field who has already competed at Charlotte.
