(Busch) "I think one thing that's starting to slip through the cracks is the ability for a driver to understand his auto and be able to work on it and knowing what it takes to set up the front toe or the rear suspension".

A two-time victor at Talladega in both the Xfinity and Cup Series, Logano has developed into a consistent contender, but he's always looking to learn. "We only do this (type of racing) four times a year, so it's hard to be really good at it, or at least it's hard for me".

Sunday's race action will conclude with the GEICO 500, scheduled for 1 p.m. "I love racing here at Talladega in these XFINITY cars", Logano said. Logano has won two of the last three races at Talladega and is quickly becoming known for his dominance in restrictor-plate races.

Worth mentioning: Joey Logano, victor of last weekend's race at Richmond, has finished worse than sixth only once all season, when he crashed at Phoenix and finished 31st. "Especially coming here where I don't have a lot of experience on superspeedways in general".

9-2 favourite Always Dreaming wins Kentucky Derby in the slop

"(Today's) really the first time I've gotten to get out front and really try to command the pack. "I kind of made a mistake where I was on the track".

Saturday's schedule includes that postponed race and also the XFINITY Series' Sparks Energy 300 and qualifying rounds for the GEICO 500. I knew it right from the beginning of practice. Here's all the info you'll need to watch the Sparks Energy 300 live. That's not exactly comforting for teams looking for their first wins, including the likes of Sadler, Wallace, William Byron and Daniel Hemric, but it does mean lots of different cars have a shot at a victory.

Even just using an Xfinity race to go through the motions when it comes to simple things like mirrors, though, can go a long way when the big race is on the line. We ran about 10 laps in practice and I said, 'Put it on jack stands.

Listen, we're not saying Matt DiBenedetto is going to take the checkered flag at Talladega, but he could be a sneaky good play Sunday.
