I don't. Complex a little -- on the suspension could be a track bar and the way the cars waddling around. What a tough break for the outside goals and Darrel Utley that may be exactly what it is that's what -- -- the -- in the center of the car. And we're starting to get into the green flag pit stop right now. Dale Earnhardt junior resume so it was -- boy here comes Ambrose and Jeff Burton. If you ever -- if you ever look underneath these cars on the pit stop her when it's going down to track down the pit road the track bar is so low. It has so much leverage on -- headed so crowded at breaking ball and ended does. Then they're talking about something amiss in the left front. It's. But you know -- that's pitchers -- -- because that's left front but according to car -- left front brake problems. Well the left front and get such a low here it this racetrack we've heard draft.

My -- Marcos is trying to do here. -- -- -- Pit -- the player. A breaking traffic -- -- several laps down. -- -- -- Has that brought her -- the car got tighter and tighter. That should change on this 181. Half. Easy playing coming any infineon car is very good at before the round wasn't that. In other guys on the not -- Lot of -- outside the team gets better right now the group coming. Big football fans here. It didn't -- His race car tightened up. Four tire stop. He is away Landon Cassel picks up the lead of the race. And what Marcus was doing he would wait for pit road it's clear he couldn't get to his truck he can't get to his garage. And he had to go around the track and didn't get into the garage. Cassel your leader tough break for Jamie McMurray was in the line up efforts to stop will have to come back here. You remember the pit crew challenge race we had a weird. Two weeks ago now. How all the -- that we're not getting tight and -- kicker competition we're start to see a ration of that tonight. Plus what challenges of getting on the pit road here. Hit Danny Hamlin at eleven and Warsaw Brad Kozlowski in the this is what Danny Hamlin solidly was trying to get him. Try to take advantage to get Bastia making slowed up a little morning Tony is going to be trying to get around him on the outside and work. Don't have that orange -- -- -- -- But I don't know -- home. Jamie McMurray. Past the pin or they won't pick up his work. Not that they have won before it's all electronic scoring now but the effect would be the same if he continues to ignore the black line. Landed Cassel it's made his pit stop. Surrendered the lead gone back out on the track. As -- Murray comes in I'm sure they will argue that if you look up would stay here and make him win the argument. NASCAR has wanted off the tour officials observing each pit stop. They're both sides of the car. And they take the opportunity to top it off is that what that's for placed fourth place. Denny Hamlin inside. Kevin Harvick outside. Apartments are expecting their first child Kevin in the lane and the joke for the last few months is going to be about.

A whole bunch of kids were the -- and avionics. He may have the name remotest bit. Out Kasey Kahne had a three tenths of a second. He's the real difference what the stop itself not only did he lose the spot to Greg Biffle the sixteen our leader he also lost a lot of ground to Kyle -- PH thing. Now running -- and -- how many times do we see when it cars run it like this sixteen car is. That victories camp setup man they're excited and I wanna help that -- And another driver had a tough time on pit road was Jimmie Johnson he was fourth before pit stops. And he was five seconds out -- the -- Johnson is now 88 seconds back. There's things you can't stop. What it looked like to -- he was making an adjustment on the left front. Here's what -- that stop them maybe just a little bit. Better they were just -- it full if you believe that you'll win stay hooked up the whole time which he should. Seventeen don't get rid of guys. Lose meal and thank. Normally don't struggled pit road struggled all night like many kids -- being. And like Jimmie Johnson's team. That -- it was six before having to make this pit stop but now he.

Lights along the inside wall of this speedway. You think the -- jewel like sending the temperature is he's five victories but more importantly that track temperature. Has come down to 42 degrees from the start of the right. That's the big change in the way these drivers car from. Dark drive and now we're -- we're gonna in this thing now. Kyle Busch pitted out of second place as were. Midway through this round at green flag pit stops to be Johnson on the way and Tony Stewart. On the way out Carl Edwards getting service practice lefty and more. Continuing with a little more trouble -- pit road get Stewart turned around.

Work on probation through and I'm 43 car that was sitting in his pit box. It's all right there. We'll send it. Carl Edwards into the grass I think that was. Those are they. Guys have been angry man. Don't you think thought Easter was not before. Now how about the over driver of all -- Brad Kozlowski Steve. -- he just told his crew he's. How much damage I had a nice dinner tonight and lays down I mean you know he was the. Big blind spot on the right rear of these cars especially with the big wraparound that had sent the that rests. These drivers have they have to rely on the crew chief the call about clear. And for help from the spotter on the roof -- well. Well get him back to Tony Stewart. He would work his way back on the lead lap now he's a lap and I have failed. The leader Greg Biffle and that sixteenth hole and it goes on the two car looked to be pretty good it's got a little wrinkle I don't know writes that -- -- -- right -- over there but I. I think he's okay. Stewart was fifteenth before pit stops he is now when he first. What that's like the green flag pit stops we're down now we're the choices they. Pit stop ranks.
