  • The race is officially called. Mike Skinner wins, Johnny Benson second and Brian Scott finishes third.

  • We’re still under the red flag for the mist. Dryers are out on the track so hopefully we can get this resumed fairly soon.

  • And now they’re parking the trucks on pit road. Hopefully they don’t lose the track.

  • Still sprinkling and misting a bit outside, so we’re still under caution

  • Mike Skinner takes the lead and the caution comes out for rain. TV heads talking like the race is going to be over now, but the radar doesn’t look bad at all, so I don’t think they’re going to call the race.

  • Compton takes over the lead after pit stops. Haven’t seen if he pitted, or stayed out.

  • A tire leaving the pits isn’t a “could be” a penalty scenario Phil, it is a mandatory penalty.

  • Terry Cook just blew another tire and smashed the wall very hard. Caution is out once again.

  • David Starr is going to attempt to run the rest of the way on fuel if the race stays green the rest of the way.

    That would be a 64 green flag laps.

  • There is a hearse on the infield per the turn 2 track cam…

  • Whaddya know? Compton gets his caution, and I believe it was for Terry Cook, who might have cut down a tire because of the contact between he and Compton.

  • Terry Cook and Stacey Compton got together as Cook tried to go three wide on the outside right as Compton wiggled. Both smack the wall but continue on as we stay green.

    Now, Compton hits pit road. He will be the lucky dog if he can get a caution fairly soon.

    Hornaday has pulled out to a 2.6 second lead over Brian Ickler and Colin Braun.

  • There’s about a dozen trucks from sixth on back that are running 2×2

  • Brian Scott is going to lead them to green because he didn’t get any tires. With the track as green as it is, it will be interesting to see how quickly his truck goes away.

  • Phil Parsons just got Gabi Dicarlo’s truck (red and black) and Matt Crafton’s truck (bright yellow) confused. Don’t ask me how that happens.

    I understand what NASCAR is trying to do to help the teams cut costs by only allowing five crew members over the wall in the pits, but at the same time I don’t get why they make them pit twice if they want both fuel and tires. Someone needs to figure out a fairly efficient way to get both fuel and tires in at the same time with five guys and present that to NASCAR.

  • Competition caution lap 85.

    Everyone is going to pit for fuel and/or tires

  • Some leaders pitted before the competition caution, so Mike Skinner–who didn’t pit, inherits the lead.

    Caution was for a crash involving Ricky Carmichael–his third incident of the race–and TJ Bell.
