CHEEZ-IT 355 AT THE GLEN

Schedule: Friday, practice, (NBCSN 12:30 p.m.), practice (NBCSN, 3 p.m.); Saturday, qualifying (NBCSN, 12:15 p.m.); Sunday, race, 2:30 p.m., USA.

Last year: Joey Logano led just one lap, but that was enough to take home first over Kyle Busch.

Last week: Chris Buescher won a weather-shortened race in Pocono, his first victory in the series.

Fast facts: Jeff Gordon will drive the No. 88 car for at least two more races as Dale Earnhardt Jr. continues to battle concussion-like symptoms. ... Buescher's surprising victory put him in position to qualify for the Chase, which looked highly unlikely before Pocono. Buescher is currently in 31st place, and if he can move into the top 30 he'll earn a playoff spot. ... Eleven drivers, including Tony Stewart, are all but locked into the Chase, leaving just five spots left for the rest of the field.
