Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt had a solo home run and a single in three at-bats Friday, July 11, against the Seattle Mariners, pushing his hitting streak 11 games.

FANTASY TIP: It is Stewart's best starting position since he was on the pole at Texas April 6. Stewart has three career wins at NHMS in 29 starts, and he has 14 Top 5 finishes with an Average Finish Position of 11.9. He is a good looking fantasy option on the flat track this weekend.

Michael Waltrip Racing | Jeff Burton to start 30th

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 22:16:50 -0700

Michael Waltrip Racing driver Jeff Burton will start 30th in the Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday, July 13.

Chip Ganassi Racing | Kyle Larson falling off the pace

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 22:14:32 -0700

Chip Ganassi Racing rookie driver Kyle Larson has finished 28th or worse in three consecutive races to slip to 17th in the points. He had been seventh in points less than a month ago. "Our chances (to make the Chase) were really good up until three weeks ago," Larson said Friday, July 11.

FANTASY TIP: Larson was a nice fantasy option earlier in the year, but he has fallen on hard times. The rookie should only be used if the price is right in salary-cap formats.
