Takes care of that race car. It will be here in the eighth as long -- that race car will allow me. And I like history chief frank -- -- -- did frank he's had. Good race cars when Marcos Ambrose drove this car -- I'm gonna have a good car being better on the racetrack. -- Well like Larry was talking about -- -- the. Getting better for -- guys. Okay anything. A number of cautions and that's one reason. They're not banking on the fact will have a long green run well on the other things to various. These guys say I don't we we started to fall off. You gotta go hard when you've got good reverend Kerr and and hang onto it until you can name before tires. Spent much cooler and much windier.

Into the cords on their right front -- Spots on the right -- they've made some changes that car much better now not pushing. Thanks fellas we. Hundreds of 500 laps next time around Kyle Busch leading Jimmie Johnson. By half a second. Six leaders finally changes NASCAR on fox live from Martinsville Kyle Busch Jimmie Johnson Denny Hamlin knows. Three of the last fifteen. Short track races says that we have a caution flag out on the track. Right now Dave Bellini with the problems so let's rejoin -- area might. -- got up way up those marbles and the stopping and turned over to it and apparently could not make it down. To the pit road entrance and in turn three so. He draws the second caution flag. Of the day. It goes a lap down you'll see him in front of Johnson here. -- -- had just gone a lap down and up. -- I'm down to take home. Good roads open president. I was telling his team I mean that's his earnings -- run around them running back. Yeah I don't think we really need to do much and honesty. Jimmie Johnson said the same thing -- season from the center -- track isn't going to rubber on the storm went chassis adjustment rather. You saw the previous stop might force him on the gonna reverse. Adjustment they made up their first not because. The car has gone -- -- side. There's been -- -- place. He'll have nobody. And then there's the 48 Johnson. Within 48 team Tom Watson -- here in front of -- they are killing it in the Patriots. Even though they don't have a premium hits bottom they've got an open behind the -- -- -- up because of a lap down cars. Edwards took two tires -- Hopman Cup eleven possessions from twentieth to mind Kyle's going for the lead. Johnson doesn't want a lot of haven't. It's hard to get up. To accelerate a quarterback's talent in the second grade I've never seen anybody making it restart with Kyle Busch you. Unbelievable breeze blowing but today it's just it's just not enough room on an outside right now however he finds a spot in line. Perhaps because of the next car on the inside what's his teammate Denny Hamlin. Right now -- Trapped on the -- side. I know. Carl Edwards. Past -- give you. NASCAR on fox style -- you know. Yeah. Denny Hamlin -- up. Kyle Busch for second and all that. It's. Quarter stormed through 33 of the third to push now towards David Rubin fifth. Then Newman and McMurray. It's only -- until Montoya got underneath. As Edwards went up the hill he'd been having power steering problems. We weren't -- enemies are -- around like they also made -- call that fits right side tires for track. -- It's part -- the water. He wanted -- it just means that I feel like -- that's why we're going to be. Clinton's brother. Drivers to find out just changing -- right so. -- Tampa for Kasey Kahne casino. On the outside there. It is no -- -- kids get shuffled. Don't have anybody. Any help me that's gonna say about Carl cars spirit that you run solo air pressure and left side tires -- eight games making ninety. Feel like it's -- along that's like Kevin. We better -- come up that may even. They only took two. Me being here comes Hamlet once again. Thanks Jimmy Johnson for the lead. That's like twice for 21 laps Johnson. Twice for thirty games. Yeah. Want Marcus Ambrose hard in the long. -- -- -- -- Shorter in the fact -- was eleven go home. In Darrel talked earlier there's no way they would feel leaving -- guess the next car right now. Marcos has been stuck on the outside here when thinking it's a little frustrated and tries to come down. In front of the 66 car they're in -- never speak let's try this direction that the -- are working good friend. Michael McDowell that's 66 just get -- you know there was no more room for Ambrose to go my doubts that I saw I saw Kevin Harvick knew that last week. Don't -- -- the rear spoiler up in the wind like that in. Who knows my felt -- -- couldn't figure out again and saying yeah. It's true. No gas the gas so this close -- that wasn't an independent. Don't think we'll see much action on pit road these guys they've only been. Back racing about eleven laps basic summit back of the pack but I don't think you'll see the lead. Rose opened one -- don't look for might -- Kasey Kahne who -- started eight. But fell back to twentieth largely just from being shuffled on the outside yeah I don't think in April this car might -- just got stuck on the outside and couldn't get better. -- is coming so with Brad Kozlowski. Brian Vickers Kevin are. For Tony Stewart -- -- -- and others in the back to the back. Time for the headlines this AT&T -- break for the Hollywood hotel trackside with Jeff -- Chris Myers we've had over the first 100 laps six leaders I'm different lead changes the Big Three a bullet today. Including Denny Hamlin -- last year about the same spot here's where he triggered his win of eight races over the entire season. An engine problems for Joe Gibbs racing so far not an issue the -- I a year ago we fan at the mental toughness -- -- -- was -- and this year -- -- the toughness as far as Joe -- writes in his concern last week here and lost agent the owner -- -- with the TRD which is that basically the the main headquarters for Toyota at California stay there to help try to figure out the problem. -- comedy begin in the race. He tells you -- -- to care right now Chris he's looking pretty good as far as her look at solid as far as handling. That -- really run up Baltimore Carl Edwards have some power steering problems in the top ten certainly trying to work his way up what about the -- -- we just recently so what will that dictate. I think it's gonna dictate a lot track position locked -- track position to set of keys to take a look at any Hamlet he really isn't campers this -- alien sack. Get ready restarts Edwards up tonight Kevin Harvick is 22 Czech -- AT&T fastest pit crew award textured card -- the -- police about a time. To 234567. AT&T.

And lawyer once the lead on the inside he'll get it. The first time one Richard Childress is. Employer tell me this morning when he looked this place for the first time he's that this will be pretty easy. In the big game. Chris. Really means you Larry. It's okay comment and his track -- meaning that I've gotten a lot better and I needed zero. First time McGwire has led here this is his eleventh trip to Martinsville and understand there are you walk in here this looks like all the short track you grew up. Big heavy cars -- score around here now you can say anybody know whatever friends and we want to remark back down Fred Wayne turner didn't. So right now pop -- mean just thanks so much financed. Let's go back to the caution that just occurred on this number 66 team. Phil Parsons and Randy Humphrey -- sometimes they're not able to run the whole race they will start and park to conserve. Their funds but they came in here saying Martinsville were here to race we're here to go the distance. And here are Michael McDonald's comments after this altercation. I couldn't take advantage of the I think in my game and comment about me and I don't want her here and make -- count the. I'm here race I'm here to go the distance. Don't. -- -- -- And grace and -- -- idea I don't. Or don't mess with the B yeah. Now -- 47. He is on the lead lap. By the way beyond free pass. We laughed at last week's winner Kevin Harvick. In twenty seconds. That group of cars Harvick Stewart to fourteenth -- he. That last. The wood Brothers Florida's in the garage deck. The radiator new radiator his ears and noses pushed an event. -- on the same car. Why. Did they handling. The second coming alive. Jimmy Johnson has led the most of them for -- hurry 31. Kyle Busch thirty. Kyle that only led four laps in the last six races here. Hillary tonight this is where you can really -- Right Palin got hurt pretty much -- -- around this joint. Race and somebody trying to. He's about one point eight seconds off the will live -- me. When you don't want it. Emphasizes you wanna see that as their -- the right you're playing -- Nice things. Down the straightaway -- a 140 miles an hour into the. I'll see him. Car -- came into it's it's any movement means not herky jerky to. -- -- -- -- He's very -- like. The curious case of Carl. 1387. Laps ago he ran his fastest lap of the race. Seven laps after that after taken on just those two tires he's backing up. It was only a short term. The long runs were given here I think now he's paying the price for it. James chance to mess with Karl knows what part of power steering problems and only did -- charge -- -- to do a lot of hard driving right. Carrier front row starters from last year's Daytona 500 and brickyard winner Jamie McMurray you try to win. Started outside hole and stands second in the Sprint Cup points standings entering Martinsville that's two drivers that. The chase in. Should they would have made the chase because McMurray won two races in the first when he sings Newman was the the voice of the -- Rhythm beginning next part of that thing we talked about it in a rhythm. Every time I did you get to a certain people certain -- you know it's time to roll out the throttle -- down and former. There -- four cars one lap down looking for a free pass. Paul Menard Matt Kenseth Kurt Busch and Marcos Ambrose. My employer your leader. -- Well it's not like I love winning. Okay. Don't think there's anything easy about this little half mile racetrack. Any regard. When -- really running hard as Paul Menard. And he had student because he is in the free pass. Watch Joey MacDonald Brian Vickers and Menard gets in there little bump instead of the bump and run and became the ball. Rebounds. Madonna was being -- back of the 83 of Vickers and he was getting -- don't. This was a lap later -- Always told me when your rights that is all came in you can race. Back for these cars used to have chrome plated steel bumpers we call that. Using the chrome horn. The season for all minorities had a career best finish at every track we've been to so far. And here's Jimmy Johnson eating in too. It was almost a second Steve but Johnson is closing in. It's bad timing in the corner -- in the middle innings. -- -- -- You're right. Chapel lane. Carrying signs like Jimmie Johnson. Thanks Steve when the screens on Trevor being back in the race. And I see -- Jimmie Johnson. Got -- little we've been knocked routing the curve more in the middle. We still made it he's trying to straddle. We see building up this racetrack we just rubber buildup. That's just another road that this. Jimmy Johnson and telling what he was go to the racetrack. That's what I learned is more than managing. Like his all on him you know I gotta get it in the front I -- -- -- and then you've got a big. You -- spotter listening to you -- And enjoy your resources. Thirteenth place battle. Dale Earnhardt junior has. Sixteen Greg Biffle long. It's only track and in the Sprint Cup Series schedule that Greg Biffle that sixteen to. Think crystal -- You -- popular bonding and back in fifteenth place. 28 lead lap cars. -- the first car one lap down. Jimmie Johnson gets a mirror ball -- Kyle Busch for second place. And David Letterman who had run in the top five most of all day is backsliding -- Well several cars just -- finally. -- -- BC Jeff Burton at 31. That would mean that jury in the way because your left Suns can be done and that's writing you can also see how far out that left front tire which turned out there real Rubens car. Say that the car really snug. A lot of angles now live from. Second place to Kyle Busch. Jimmy Johnson had dropped a full second behind Clint Boyer. Where bush was able to take advantage. One lapped car between Kyle and the leader. We're just gonna drive off the and it seemed like vetting team. Good long run time. -- -- been slipping away here yeah right Jimmie Johnson nice clothes and good car the long run. Veal -- and it is the 36 of paved lady once again. We hardly info -- around there. I am. When Jeff Hammond did in the audience at home. It is out. I would say these guys are cooking the lead of that right front tire from the great heat problem what happened that was about a fifty lap run around -- -- The last -- And because lady stopped on track to drop the caution. He has drawn the ire of NASCAR officials that will result in -- plan and -- Essentially cost explaining what he would -- lost -- come around come -- pit road under green and that's customary. That's what they do it. Nothing more here in. Don't short tracks because you couldn't keep going and maybe don't bring out the but here Maryland might have been the smart calling -- part rather than to risk. Trying to go around to get beaten banged up and maybe cause a bigger wrecked trying to get him room. You haven't. And might have been trying to keep up on the south. Beat situation that 36 along with a 34 report from Goodyear -- they have been belting invades on these two race cars and that they're costing a lot of the other teams. Take care you -- -- watching. And the same kind of problems. It's fair rarely we see them -- where that's at the front of the pack with a good handling race car looked at any given time. Some months back -- struggled. Your car handles good. You don't use near as much break and and you have this kind of an issue. -- you blaming getting the flat here in the course was glittering ends up being. The track screamer. And some of them -- remembering and that's the issue mind when you get out there that's stopping you see Donovan Eric -- finger I'm tired. And you're thinking kind of flat sometimes gets so bad. It's open Kristen. Meyer is extremely cognizant of where Jeannie Johnson and Kyle Busch car behind him which line which proved there and as he comes and it's hearing it's okay. He says -- it's. It's really diagnosing -- Spot Jesse and delivered to -- John. Shanahan gone away. As a racetrack is starting right. -- -- an extra free and it didn't come close just what's the biggest problem problem today. Jamie McMurray start. This car money just -- A little bit longer. And he got a good -- Dickey came out pork and Jimmy Johnson the big winner on that one. And let's show you Kyle Busch's pit exit you may have seen on the split screen. Clint Boyer coming along and then he fires out from the pits and squeezes past employer. Then hit the brakes before he gets to the next timing line. So we won't be caught speeding.
