And there you see why the caution is out for the debris. Off of his right front corner everywhere. I gotta take some it's pretty cool and you know it's a caution lights around the front here.

Twenty laps since those great flag -- I can't imagine but any travel pass of the opportunity to get it close and local race fuel. But we might see some strategy space of those guys that made late green flag stops we saw -- Kurt Busch Brad Kassell last year earlier. May be right side tires only for some guys. I did Berber and -- cans of police are around there headed your way. And that Kansas strategy will be to take four tires on that car Mike they shame that the big problem they're struggling with right now it's it's not as fast as they like to be.

Of the racetrack really really. The track had been totally different look takes a little bit an adjustment to get used to him. Darrell does that become kind of like tunnel vision but they think it looks painful it's -- that is tricky turn the contrast to. Real bright. All the -- looking. Came back at Trevor Payne. And Paul Menard. Green -- on the inside. This is where Trevor main thing I've I've talked him a couple of times. This is where he had to use the same mindset that he had at Daytona. Be careful when you get yourself in a situation. That could -- knock you out of the race. Sixteenth place. Pain in my car. As Kurt Busch and met Jenson. And distanced the field. Third place Kozlowski already more than a second. As he battles David Reagan for third here comes drink it. Brad Kozlowski the team really did not get going on that restart and Kurt Busch's teammate. Actually looked like college sleep. And and just what I was talking about and I've talked to Trevor about his. -- come off turn four right now he's under a lot of pressure he'd been our freshman Paul Menard. In the PG extravagant that's part of seeking goal right now trying to stay hidden these guys might be. To give up just a little bit right here and try to get it back later.

Record forty mile wind gusts. An awful lot of win now Matt Kenseth has sent the motor has cooled down the ball pressure has stopped fluctuating. But look there's more trash on that -- Outside of racing in the win that race and up front where you're in clean -- you don't have a lot of -- there are a lot of other drivers in front of recycled paper magnate. Sixth place. Boyer Kozlowski biffle and Edwards Rex get reported that Brett can. Operation. Changed a little right side tires and then glanced -- And here comes biffle. Greg Biffle up to six now. I'm one point seven seconds after -- 135. Laps complete -- Kansas still the leader by two seconds. Your writing no -- Kasey Kahne watching the American ethanol in car camera. As saying he works to stay on the lead lap -- in contention. Larry did you talk to the back of the just got to work with their communication to try and make that car veteran people would track changes and that's the is be proactive not reactive you've got to anticipate. Percent anticipate what they're gonna feel in this race car as we move into the night time because quite a we just went to another transition. Is just about turn dark here. And that kind of electrifies Kyle Busch because he is now the -- place car. And starting to make some noise three and a half seconds off the lead and running a little quicker than the leader. Back to eighth place were Jimmie Johnson and Kurt Busch. -- Think this is another driver Jimmie Johnson and that 480510. Just keeps getting his car better and better started six failed back. We just keep working on the car he moved to the he's driving away from Kurt Busch -- Pit strategy might got hurt personally that's the heart is breaking loose he has dropped from first all the way down the he's trying to hold on to. It's. Happy to have. -- In my in the corners yeah. Really sideways just trying to hang on to. Clint Boyer has passed Kyle Busch that moved cornerback help. The third. Employer is lapping faster than the leader Matt -- Jamie McMurray made an unscheduled stop put a lap down. And again on this refer back to what we've talked better million show manager -- since he -- -- says I'm having a gravel road map here. Don't do things you know if you drop -- over your head you'll probably get in trouble. Acted up tennis help. There's cancer at the leader. There David Reagan one point six seconds back. The good news reporter. Is that he's faster than the leaders the bad news is he trails them there's -- of the yellow car like three and a half seconds. You know about Jamie McMurray make an unscheduled pit stop had a loose wheel from that last pit stop on them. Yeah when you're running here. Larry had that right -- said -- it's it's understood to load it's got so much pressure on him. That you just can't you can't tolerate a loose wheel at all on any -- -- -- three that you guys coming here. Be the first time tonight we can't you Hendrick cars it's in Johnson now being. Part ten.

Maybe check canal street racing -- Jimmie Johnson was talking about the ninth time because Johnson has come -- life. He's made the pass to Marcus cameras here we're seventh and I think he's now within one spot where he started. And I started.
