I needed days of -- when junior you've -- league races very confidently right now he's looking very impressive -- he walked his teammate 48 car Jimmy Johnson. Apparently the battle with the double zero degree -- just now went around him before. Wanna talk about this certainly Jeff Gordon whose sense of frustration finishing. Consecutive the last two races on those green white checkered finish is currently running second and Denny Hamlin wouldn't -- -- very -- running third. Yeah he's definitely have I got the fastest race car around -- moment realizing Dale Earnhardt junior stopped her. We've championed. Jeff didn't have the greatest pit stop will be held at last grant green flag stops comfortable. A lot of racetrack and run -- -- don't need unity she's way back closer to Dale Earnhardt junior he is the fastest car on the track. Come along this teammate Jimmie Johnson did Jeff Tony -- but the most left in this race would consider this his 400 career start. And Stewart Haas win consecutive races Tony wants for last. Season to win one for the first time number was Stewart Haas last week I think he's got an excellent chance of seeing how fast he is a victory been very solid all day long. My the other -- that sync it was everybody else one caution -- I think you can tell these guys around Baghdad. Tony Stewart we'll definitely be in the -- We've talked about Dale Earnhardt junior is the first Daytona 500 Jamie McMurray Daytona 500 winner.

GA TT fastest pit crew of the year award delivered by AT&T. The nation's fastest three G network let's rejoin their -- Larry and Mike is about fifty. Jimmie Johnson who's not he's not afraid she's gonna go around Denny Hamlin but -- that bump that he gave -- Kevin Conway. I've heard you say all you expect -- Consistent stay in the same group if you're gonna run in the bottom stay on the bottom of the top stay on the top it's -- -- just trying to get out of the way and have the world's to cut. I think what happens is when your rookie years focusing so hard on the mind you run around a racetrack you forget there are people are coming up only much much faster. Facility it's one of those things -- -- we'll probably. Might even speak to Kevin Conway about it look okay. Passes pick a lane.

The first six races of the season. Yet they they stumbled. A little bit last week at Phoenix but you know -- the big. They run in the top twelve in points and -- this group just continues to be solid we sat down with Paul Menard. Last week ABC you know it's been a culmination of things obviously slugger -- become an -- board as the crew chief. But he -- set also. Just the camaraderie I think between the four teams but did they -- track this -- they have looks like. Right Larry when you say this car because the -- Here in Atlanta at they have dental. Out of work over the course of the -- position. Her top five finishes. -- -- -- The crew was filled out of fourteen. Audible for those teams -- new cars new. Working for Bernard. Got two guys that I've got to see an entirely different attitude this year over last year. Enjoy the -- over the other. Estate agent confidence that they did not have. A year ago and it's showing up in the you know back to Paul -- we always like to. Talk about these guys above and beyond the racetrack -- And every continent in the war. -- right -- I still got six to go we've only done it in the US. And -- skiing is great. -- -- -- Toledo one point seven seconds over Jimmie Johnson you know took -- ever to win here at Texas. But Steve -- Six top five finishes here before he finally got his first Texas -- plastic. Any -- right. Right now -- now. -- coming off three and four. Right now just. Just look at the score and -- -- it just looks like the only car that can keep Tampa with him as the got a truck behind -- this -- And -- -- that both those guys in the thirties forties and fifties closest thing to a sixties and seventies. Track when you exit turn to a little tiger to little tighter turn a -- to and it causes you a little bit of a problem over there have been hurt for. It holds up it's a sweeper. And so you get a lot of speed on the corner exit and that's why you get look revolutions come out of her. Find placement Torre has been running a high line most all day. Jeff Burton. You know the thing about it a lot of the guys that work early commerce home that glanced green flag pit stop like Mark Martin Delaware. Jamie McMurray kids have been -- human. Within about eight to twelve -- we're gonna see another set of -- like pit stops going. Should do that for. This logjam that's Kansas than the seventeen and Sam hornish -- trying to keep from going one lap down. Jeff Gordon got a little. Jimmie Johnson right there and write to them. And the lead here comes Gordon back. And they still have not been able to allow the seventeen more than seventy -- but they -- bad -- that 48 is much much quicker around the top of the racetrack and what -- we've never -- Gordon couldn't get up there right. Yet desperate people are doing desperate. That would be the 77 a 4017. Cancer. To stay on the lead lap and now they -- -- Down Atlanta yeah you know what Jeff Gordon synergy -- what they do that for me here comes the 88 to. To pit road when he was the year. First of the leaders. To be on pit road during the last sequence -- that will repeat itself -- -- 206 with a 120. Go home. Probably two more stops meanwhile we'll watch -- so this -- no word yet Sam hornish is given Jimmie Johnson and it. 48 and at points we've given them -- -- man. -- -- -- -- -- -- It was time to bring in the. Mark mark. -- -- -- -- -- Blank stops we've been under green since -- -- seventeen. At sun coming up fine -- full rounds. Green flag pit stops -- Mark Martin won the first car to hit pit road the last -- the green stuff from him pretty telling him about race now let's say the next we'll see as. In -- than thirty now and man. The car -- sit. Says. For the -- Jeff Gordon comes right back after Jimmie Johnson. Jeff Gordon got passed by Jimmie Johnson the coach Jeff -- an aggressive enough time to get through that left traffic. Jimmy -- he was able to slip on how sad but thank you can see how good those two cars are actually pushing Jeff Gordon down the front straightaway. That -- make Jeff Gordon very unhappy. Now on the last run they came in no one lap apart Johnson won't lap before Gordon. And see how this plays out you never know these two are teammates generally they're going at each other right now. They -- -- at each other just like they're they don't know each other David Rubin stopped Kevin Harvick is Ian Robby Gordon on pit road. Jolie Madonna. And Ryan Newman coming in for their stops along Regan Smith. Consecutive round of green flag stops and -- -- -- those two car there the 24 to 48 Gordon Johnson should be overrun another ten laps at least -- Haven't learned anything and it's about my last earlier than eight planets it's. Not a -- and -- the first time imagining. I'm all okay. It didn't. In announcing Tylenol. -- quiet. Gordon happens second over Johnson now. Has Jimmie Johnson's gonna have to feel we're getting. -- second place. And I think Jeff Gordon gets a big big Prioleau been -- leap Jimmie Johnson around the racetrack. Wait Jimmy is a six success he's had. -- relief Bill Elliott. Trying to move up. Greg Biffle -- It's. Right side. Just can't. It's. -- Warriors and second of the Childress cars to hit the road it's important continues to walk laps. Now what we've got here we've got a 121 laps to go for the had to make these green flag stops early in this sequence it's gonna be tough to make -- -- price of one more about. We'll run look at cars like this twice for a car up Jeff Gordon Jimmie Johnson giving -- those guys like -- They may be -- stretch this thing out and make this race a one more stop. Sam hornish had once been to bring out a caution earlier counties in Princeton. He -- race cars started -- -- great night. Let -- see another. NB a little exciting here in this -- Just good. In the back when. He's glad. Elliott Sadler. On pit road Atlanta to sixteen. You know sometimes they don't you talk about staying out a little tired and put it you run these races back with the -- The point in the -- we gotta stay out of a little bit longer -- Your particular because lock up saying it's platinum almost hit a one stop window day. Accurate judgment that this. That was my anxieties. -- -- -- -- -- His -- his. You know whose side he's away. Kurt -- to make his way to his pit stall tale of two races. My card now. It's extremely on the men's side. Turning now. -- -- -- Releasing his cards. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Vickers and Jeff Burton getting service -- Juan -- describes himself as. According to the. You know Larry it. A lot of ground to the 48 on the line. The 48 came to pit road smoked at all for tired Jimmie Johnson did Jeff Gordon posted and a pit road -- right here. That's about how much difference that's a pass for the lead right there in the 48 -- every minute that on and off pit road. 88 Dale Earnhardt junior exact see the leader. Fresh tires and a little bit quicker. But I don't think Dale Earnhardt junior can make it one more stop 24 to 48 Johnson and Gordon hospital. The plot thickens with a 115 laps to go 300 cars out for. Earnhardt Johnson and Gordon. NASCAR Sprint Cup race -- got fox is sponsored by Verizon Wireless big racing fans get Verizon championship racing for race highlights behind the scenes and exclusive interviews right on your vcast phones. From the network with the most three G coverage. Verizon. 1997. Jeff Burton driving and Jack Roush Ford earns his first. Victory in what's now the Sprint Cup Series. At the first ever. Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway we have got to. Great fight for the lead analyst Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson keep trading it back in Florida. I've got the feeling after several near miss is Jeff Gordon is just decided today he has not going to be denied by that 48 car. Oh yeah but is this great ones down. Jeff Gordon gonna start saying just like he did in Vegas. Is -- getting thing where. We know we're gonna have at least one more pit stop but the thing about it all the race they didn't do it just look at some of the cars they just. Their teammate Mark Martin -- It just took last week's winner from Phoenix brand new -- in that thirty now. Army car slam things you won't be pretty much in a league of their own right now do you. They're able to bring -- -- everybody knows. It's eighteen cars on the lead lap with just a little over a hundred laps to go but look -- has really stretch this out and 48 Johnson then. Steve. You're right you might get -- -- out brawl totally could -- be charged to corner the car would just push. The front -- won't rip you just go right up the hill and killed her right. So roll out early and do what you. Johnson's second here's Dale Earnhardt junior running in third map. Already. Early on this runs through -- condition consumer problem. Opposite problem -- teammate Jimmie Johnson Jimmy Johnson his car is not responding to the steering wheel getting in the corner Dale Earnhardt junior the the backing and coming -- lose it so you turn to blow off BC eleven car here we Denny Hamlin FedEx or. Turn them right front -- off but that's -- build up a little more air pressure. It's like they're being waged in the car quite tight in the car but let me hired. That should help. Of the three seconds back finds David Ruben. In the double zero from Michael Waltrip racing. In the fifth. Car pole sitter Tony Stewart F fourteen car making his political career start today. The good news is silently in the top -- than six the bank. News half a lap down the leader Jeff Gordon and 24. In seventh Paul Menard continues to Branson -- -- -- board. All of his family's. Successful in the open -- particularly IndyCar Racing. All attributed IndyCar only want to test it at pikes peak so that's enough of that. Montoya has been in the wall I don't know. City tires down caution is out -- He left a long black -- beginning of the we'll know more all the way over the turn to. And Kevin Harvick. In fact that kids at the little lap -- while ago because they did it early got -- bad as those fresh tires they're back. So that pretty much end the sequence so wash cycle pit stops. As the caution flies for the fifth time today from Victoria. Ryan Newman last week's winner in Phoenix we'll receive the free pass and get back on the lead line. This will put every one with a about a hundred laps to go in a one stop window easily to make it into the race. Also been changed the complexion of -- -- considerably because now issues can be resolved. Before we go into this last. And I think we've been saying this for ten years cautions. Breed cautions his -- the last third of the rates not seen them -- -- machine. Jeff Gordon's lead -- -- Jimmie Johnson Dale Earnhardt junior. Hamlin and David Rubin -- the first Toyota erased the first Ford is Paul Menard and seven. And the first dodge Kurt Busch in tenth. Pit road will be open and yes they have a new commitment cone out there let's hope we'll. He gets to that. Steve Burns yeah. Listening to the Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jimmie Johnson says that Jesse was freer on entry. But still he's -- Jeff Gordon his teammates say as more loose on early and -- will lose one lane exit what a good time. Look into the energy is an -- and a lot of African pretty much everywhere on the racetrack. Tracks are just -- also -- the -- try to tie him up. And their strength. -- -- Few spots on the you -- wanted to see how Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Burton came all the way down pit road side by side. Per game five spots they just did. -- -- -- -- I don't like that to our strategy just like her.
