Killer guy he's got -- box -- get out of box right now hill and Robby Gordon heading fox the more wide down the front straightaway Daryl it's good stuff -- -- fourth distract so that's our drivers like these track.

DirecTV. Kyle Busch leading Clint -- Mark Martin Denny Hamlin and Kasey Kahne. Three of those Torre it was in the top five. Spots of fire back this year the winning designer gets personal visit from the driver of go online for all new ways to create customized and share your designs. You know learn how we'd like to say I can make up hundreds of seconds on the track at all lack and in which you can lose sack dance in the pit. And look at the difference between Kyle Busch who trailed Denny Hamlin by about two and a half seconds. Before. They each made their pit stops there is the leader. We talked about getting him in the eleven team having trouble on the right side but if you -- it was trouble across the board. I mean that's almost five seconds Mike you talked about it. Even about two and a half seconds he's now almost seven seconds behind his teammate countless. Kyle's fastest lap of the race lap 91 right after he got those -- fresh tires. One thing I want to say about Kyle Busch's crew and -- everybody that make green flag stops. So after the pit stop Denny Hamlin tried to make sense of -- ball with his crew chief Mike Ford. Basically. If they can't go for the go get it back. I am radio and listen to. On the radio the only thing green and talked about it. And where the other cars aren't telling you it's. Again very calm he's. Finally feeling. He's in third place six point nine. Seconds behind his Joe Gibbs racing teammate Kyle Busch. The leader we got trouble I hear the world happened to Juan Montoya -- say that the back event or. Meant that part out there that it would look. With a little help that's a lot of damage started pole sitter. We'll see how well. -- thing. Now and -- department Newman having given -- 42 a little. Sliding and not really that not that forfeit what a great shot. Which you can also see Newman's breaks were blowing a little bit like he tried to blow up the good. That is a tremendous amount of damage one problem when we that we had played out at all home. Caution is out from the debris. From that incident. And that will be a huge break for Montoya because Terrell how could he continue to race that car. Without any rear downforce -- that spoiler. They better have a pretty good body man in there right now because that things got did quite a bit damaged the right career thank -- -- BC here -- -- -- do some real -- sheet -- work. First caution of the night comes out of lap 108. And so we've gone 25% of the way caution free. These cars are pretty tough Mike but that's -- the way it hangs over that rear quarter panel. If you -- that back in into the wall like it it does probably more damage anything if you knew the car. Based on your votes Pizza -- fan favorite tonight Jeff Gordon. It's currently in the sixth place that's right where he started. He's been well up into the top five. Holds the sixth at the moment before pit stops occurred. -- -- Is -- way. Up into the fourth turn might show he's going to be one of the first once again that they will adjust back Carter tried giving credit they get better Chris Dunn. They've made just -- just for Denny Hamlin on the you can't you can't stop my drive off his good I'm still a little bit tight this Saturday the latest reports hire Steve. Rest in my employer says his car started to chatter in the center a little bit sipping cars plowing and it just aired a left front tire mat. Cowboys still he was -- not running Friday night's race may. He got for tonight he says his car exceptional. No change in the last that no change is expected on this stuff. Brad Kozlowski one position ahead of Tony Stewart when the caution waved friendships and everything else that was put calls -- short repeating got advantage of those fresh tires get paid out. Did the same thing last night and it worked. Lawyer Jeff Gordon. Very close to one another just gap separating them. They should be done. Perhaps even before the leaders get to their pit stall together around. What Greg Biffle the sixteen history having. We're got a good start. Can't look away now. Looks like Kyle Busch going to be the ball at the end of pit road that white line is not the timing line it's a little further down it is Kyle Busch first off the pit lane. -- -- Mark Martin and Kasey Kahne. Are the front five were under caution because of debris from -- again sort of enjoyed on the box next ball. Super small -- Parched putting -- lead lap cars -- you ready for the restart. Popular body took the wave around so the traffic -- Dale Earnhardt junior to get back on the tail end of the lead lap. It'll be Kyle Busch Wheeling Warriors side by side on the front row for the restart Denny Hamlin with Mark Martin came and more. -- the top ten of 44 lead lap cars. Free ride off into the corner. -- the restart master beat him wasting any -- and you've got to pretty comfortable lead off turn two down -- back and there are still three wide in the middle. Edwards on the outside came in the middle Newman on the bottom. Vickers and Truex all under a blanket and saw the big -- right there in turn three a couple of years ago here by the same kind of action. When Carl Edwards just had nowhere to go -- on the outside. I don't know I've -- outside stuck in the middle I think it. You don't do. But all. And there are just inches between efforts in the wall as they marched down the front straightaway. He drops again he finally got in the second. Teammates -- track record. Kasey Kahne I don't think I wouldn't say enough about round victory to run and only one calls him. And he has driven from 377. Really strong tonight force led the race. Vickers has come from that deep in the field they got it together tonight. Possession. Did you sit at number 83 they were not fashioned practice this is working. Jeff Gordon just passed Clint Boyer. And I happen to third and ten point Carl Edwards troubles continue he -- started eight dropped all the way back to nine. You saw it just got off for Jimmie Johnson. Let's see what. Five -- had to do this. Jimmie Johnson 48 actually got -- real lose because they. Not Nash got there. Oops got to -- they're in the world tonight. -- -- -- Ukraine's gas and you'll see no loss. Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin one point eight seconds out front of Jeff Gordon. Clint Boyer putter and towards blacks. The NASCAR. Right. -- Joe Gibbs racing teammate. There is the gap four tenths of a second. -- Kyle and -- first to second they are now two seconds. In third. Denny Hamlin did not have a great pit stop and afterwards Mike Ford who rallied his true -- we -- Gotta -- these guys. You -- that -- givens and -- through blows. Betty being cars get -- get it really are okay in order to win that's great you've got a -- of -- more break but we'll know how to. Make you think he had any idea -- -- remembers -- -- knew exactly what my sport was saying anything. Now hearing mini camp and right now that -- the same car. You know fight left come. If you are very happy either. I won't say if but when the Hamlin catchers Kyle Busch. A couple of laps. -- -- -- afford to battle well they were running this way third behind on the last lap with a little charity race. Denny Hamlin wondering if you only in the lamb but for a long week. He's so much stronger. Stronger thing how bush is. Think you're right in the middle of the corner he's able to put that product -- and drop out. Think you know what that can be driving style top can be charged in the he'll he'll do it. Vinny we know likes to roll out but the car floating in and you nailed it probably come up probable heart. I think that's. I think that's the difference right now they're both -- and strength. Little bit different. Mean you look at the score Monica right now. On the stop watch their -- league. But they are the class of the field Jeff Gordon. Three seconds back. Mark Martin four point two behind four or five seconds and Brian Vickers has moved up to six. Five point four seconds okay. Guys just went about -- great -- Mark Martin F five wins a lot of valuable. Center in fourth place. Might wanna keep it down a little guy because his car was probably given them a week. Kasey Kahne. Led this race challenge. Was in the top 500. Tonight and now finds himself in -- place. That's been. But I -- no big deal long way to go here. Then -- is wrong foot. You know based on the fact we know we've had surgery on that foot I would think that had some. Something to do with the. Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin running 12 between them they've won six of the last seven. Short track races in the Sprint Cup Series.
