2011 NCWTS Lucas Oil 200


DON’T LOOK AWAY, THE MONSTER OR KYLE OR KEVIN MAY BE LURKING.>>36 TRUCKS HAVE JUST COME TO THE LINE. WELCOME TO THE NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES LUCAS OIL 200 ON SPEED. A BEAUTIFUL LATE AFTERNOON FOR RACING. 64 DEGREES. PARTLY CLOUDY. A LIGHT BREEZE. JUST OVER 16 MILES PER HOUR. WE’RE GOING TO SEE A LOT BIGGER SPEEDS AS THEY TRY TO TAKE ON MILES OF MONSTER. THAT’S RIGHT, THE MONSTER MILE HERE AT DOVER, DELAWARE. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR STARTING GRID. JUSTIN MARKS GRABS HIS SECOND CAREER POLE IN THE CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES. ON HIS OUTSIDE WILL BE KEVIN HARVICK. WE WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE NUMBERS FOR THIS RACE TRACK. PHIL?>>Phil: WHAT A GREAT TRACK. THE CORNERS ARE BANKED 24 DEGREES. 9 DEGREES ON THE STRAIGHTAWAY. SOMEBODY GETS IN TROUBLE UP TOP, THEY’RE COMING TO THE BOTTOM. BE READY FOR IT.>>200 MILES, 200 LAPS. 36 TRUCKS WILL BE STARTING THIS RACE.>>Phil: THE PIT WINDOW, 80-85 LAPS. A LOT OF TIMES WE COME WE WORRY ABOUT TIRE WEAR. NOT THIS TIME.>>Michael: THAT MEANS STRATEGY WILL BE A PART OF THIS DECISION. COULD BE FUN WITH THE CREW CHIEFS TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT. >>Rick: IT’S TIME TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE SPEED SPOTLIGHT. RAY, YOU’RE GOING TO START WITH OUR TRACK RECORD HOLDER TONIGHT.>>RICK, THEY WOULD BE DAVID STARR. IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE HE WENT TO VICTORY LANE. 126 RACES. IF YOU’RE GOING TO PICK A TRACK HE CAN STRIKE BACK AT, IT’S DOVER. SEVEN TOP TENS AND A COUPLE OF THIRD PLACE FINISHES. DAVID SAYS HE CAN FEEL AGGRESSIVE WITH THE STEERING WHEEL HERE. I LOOK FOR THAT ZACHRY TOYOTA TO BE TOUGH TONIGHT. HERMIE?>>THIS SCOTT SPEED’S TRUCK TONIGHT. HE’S GETTING EXPERIENCE AT A PLACE LIKE DOVER HERE THIS WEEKEND. HE GOT AN 11th PLACE RUN IN PHOENIX. HE’S GOT AN EXPERIENCED CREW CHIEF. LOOK FOR BRAD SWEET TO GET A CAREER FINISH AT DOVER. PHIL?>>Phil: I WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT J.R. FITZPATRICK. HE’S A VETERAN OF THE NASCAR CANADIAN TIRE SERIES. HE WAS THE 26 CHAMPION. HE’S MADE 13 PREVIOUS TRUCK STARTS, INCLUDING ONE IN DOVER. HIS BEST TRUCK FINISH WAS FOURTH IN DAYTONA IN 2009. HE’S MADE A HANDFUL OF NATIONWIDE STARTS AS WELL. HE’S GOING TO DO DOUBLE DUTY AND ALSO ATTEMPT TO RUN THE NATIONWIDE RACE TOMORROW. HE WILL START HIS COLLEGECOMPLETE.COM FORD IN THE 28th POSITION. HE’S THE ONLY FORD IN THE FIELD.>>Michael: MY GUY IS CHRIS FONTAINE, PHIL. YOU CAN SEE, HE’S 29 YEARS OLD FROM LAKELAND, FLORIDA. HE WILL START IN FRONT OF THE FORD THERE. CHRIS HAS MADE 25 TRUCK STARTS THE LAST SIX YEARS. NONE OF THEM LIKE TALLADEGA. WITH SIX TO GO IN TALLADEGA, HE WAS LEADING THE RACE. LED 15 LAPS. HE SHOWED AT TALLADEGA HE CAN RUN UP FRONT WITH HE’S BOYS.>>Rick: THE TRUCKS ARE ROLLING ON NOW, GETTING READY FOR 200 LAPS AROUND THIS TRACK. WE HAVE QUITE A FEW CAMERAS POSITIONED OUTSIDE THE TRACK AND INSIDE THE TRUCKS. ONE OF THOSE BEING THE 99 FORD ON BOARD OF J.R. IF IT’S — FITZPATRICK. AS WELL AS TODD BODINE. THE FUNAI ON BOARD BY JAMES BUESCHER AND THE BAD BOY BUGGIES, KEVIN HARVICK WILL STARTED ON THE FRONT ROW. HE ALSO CARRIES ONE OF OUR CAMERAS. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK. THE GREEN FLAG ABOUT TO FLY AND ARE THE GLOVES OFF BETWEEN KYLE BUSCH AND KEVIN HARVICK? YOU’RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT RIGHT HERE AT DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY.>>Rick: WALMART RECIPE FOR SUCCESS. WHAT IS THE WINNING INGREDIENT, RAY?>>WELL, RICK, FOR KYLE BUSCH, IT HAS TO BE NUMBER OF LAPS LED AT THIS RACE TRACK. 1,881. WHEN YOU LOOK AT HIS TRUCK SERIES RESULTS HERE, MAYBE NOT QUITE AS IMPRESSIVE AS YOU WOULD THINK. YEAH, HE HAS ONE WIN HERE BUT A LOT OF BAD FINISHES. KYLE BUSCH HAS THREE WINS IN NATIONWIDE, TWO IN CUP AND ONE IN TRUCK. I HAVE TO TELL YOU, I THINK TODAY THE 18 IS THE TRUCK TO BEAT. HERMIE?>>ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING STATS I’VE HEARD IS 11 RACES AT DOVER, 11 DIFFERENT WINNERS. FIVE FIRST-TIME WINNERS. WHAT DOES THAT TELL ME? IT DOESN’T MEAN THE EXPERIENCE YOU HAVE THAT NECESSARILY GETS YOU TO VICTORY LANE. YOU HAVE TO BE PATIENT WHEN YOUR TRUCK IS NOT RIGHT. DON’T FORGET, THIS PIT ROAD IS TREACHEROUS. ALTHOUGH THEY WIDENED IT, IT WILL TAKE A COMPLETE TEAM EFFORT TO WIN THE RACE.>>ARE YOU GUYS SUPERSTITIOUS? FRIDAY THE 13th? DOESN’T THAT PLAY INTO THE MONSTER MILE?>>Michael: WE’RE TRYING TO TAKE ON A MONSTER ON FRIDAY THE 13th? WE’RE GOING TO FIND OUT WHY HE’S THE MONSTER WHEN THE TRUCKS TAKE THE GREEN. THE SPEEDS ARE CRAZY FAST. >>Rick: 11 DIFFERENT WINNERS. WILL WE SEE THE 12th?>>Phil: WE WON’T BECAUSE WE HAVE KYLE BUSCH AND KEVIN HARVICK IN THIS RACE. BUT — >>Rick: THEY’RE FEUDING. >>Phil: IF THEY TAKE EACH OTHER OUT, MAYBE SO. >>Rick: JUSTIN MARKS GRABBED HIS SECOND CAREER POLE. HE WILL BRING THE FIELD TO THE GREEN FLAG COMING OUT OF TURN NUMBER 4. MARKS ON THE INSIDE. HARVICK ON THE OUTSIDE. AND THE GREEN FLAG WILL FLY. RACING UNDERWAY AT THE MONSTER.>>Phil: TRUCKS DON’T HAVE TO FIGHT FOR THE BOTTOM. THERE’S A GROOVE THERE. KEVIN HARVICK IS MAKING IT WORK.>>Rick: A BOBBLE EARLY FOR JUSTIN MARKS THAT WILL LOSE HIM THE LEAD. ON THE OUTSIDE, KEVIN HARVICK TAKES THE TOP SPOT. BEHIND HIM, RON HORNADAY IN THE 33. HORNADAY WITH A GREAT MOVE ON THE OUTSIDE. FOLLOWS KYLE BUSCH INTO THIRD. JUSTIN MARKS WILL FALL INTO THE FOURTH SPORT AS THEY CROSS THE STRIPE THE FIRST TIME.>>Michael: HOW DO YOU LIKE MY PICKUP TRUCK RUNNING AND 170 MILES AN HOUR AT THE MONSTER MILE? ISN’T THAT FUN? LOOK AT THE SPEED. >>Rick: YOU TALKED ABOUT THE BANK, THIS IS A SELF-CLEANING RACE TRACK. IF SOMEBODY WRECKS HIGH, YOU EXPECT IT TO COME DOWN THE TRACK. >>Phil: AND IT WILL. AND YOU SEE COLE WHITT. HERE COMES MATT CRAFTON AS WELL. GETS LOOSE OFF THE CORNER.>>Rick: TRAVIS KVAPIL DROPPING BACK. NOT UP TO SPEED. JOHNNY SAUTER TRIES TO GET PAST HIM. SIDE BY SIDE. KVAPIL ON THE INSIDE. CRAFTON ON THE OUTSIDE.>>Michael: THIS TRACK IS RUBBERED IN. YOU TALKED ABOUT THE TIRE WEAR. THAT MEANS THERE’S OPTIONS. THERE’S PLACES ALL OVER THE TRACK YOU CAN RUN. UP HIGH LIKE CRAFTON. SO MANY OPTIONS FOR THESE DRIVERS.>>Phil: KYLE BUSCH, THE 18 TRUCK HAS PULLED INTO THE TAIL GATE OF THE 33 OF HORNADAY.>>Rick: HARVIN, HORNADAY, BUSCH, COULTER. KYLE BUSCH WE TALKED ABOUT WHEN HE GOT IN THE BACK OF HORNADAY IN 2008 — >>Phil: HORNADAY LOOSE OFF OF FOUR.>>Michael: THAT GOES TO SHOW HOW HARD THEY’RE DRIVING HE’S TRUCKS. YOU MASH THE GAS AND HOLD IT OFF THE CORNER. IT CAN GET AWAY FROM YOU IN A HURRY.>>Rick: HERE’S KYLE BUSCH LOOKING FOR THE SECOND SPOT. HORNADAY HAS TO CHASE IT UP THE TRACK. >>Phil: KYLE GOT LOOSE. >>Michael: AND RON DIDN’T GIVE HIM A LOT OF ROOM. THAT’S KEVIN’S TEAM MADE. RUN DID NOT CUT HIM ANY SLACK WHEN HE ENTERED TURN ONE.>>Rick: HORNADAY HAS THE SECOND SPOT. BUSCH IN THIRD.>>Phil: REMEMBER THAT VIDEO WE SHOWED EARLIER FROM MICHIGAN 2008? WE TALKED ABOUT KEVIN HARVICK AND KYLE BUSCH. THAT WAS RON HORNADAY THAT GOT TURNED AROUND BY THE 18 OF KYLE BUSCH.>>Rick: KYLE BUSCH HUGGING THE BOTTOM OF THE TRACK. AROUND GOES THE 99 OF J.R. FITZPATRICK.>>Phil: THAT’S MY SPOTLIGHT DRIVER FROM ONTARIO, J.R. IF IT’S — FITZPATRICK. >>Michael: LOOK AT THAT MESS.>>HE WAS A CAR LENGTH BACK. I SAW IT WIGGLE OFF. >>Phil: SO DIFFICULT TO GET IN TROUBLE WITHOUT MISSING ANYTHING. NORMALLY IT’S THE INSIDE WALL. >>Michael: YOU CAN SEE WHERE HE HIT IT. HE LOST IT OFF OF TWO. HE WAS HALFWAY DOWN THE BACK STRAIGHTAWAY WHEN HE HIT IT. THAT WRECK TALK ABOUT 1/4 MILE OR SO TO — >>Rick: THE WHOLE STRAIGHTAWAY TO COMPLETE THAT. THERE’S THE — YOU CAN SEE THE MARKS OF WHERE HE GOT INTO THE WALL ON THE INSIDE TWICE.>>Phil: COMING OFF THE CORNER. HE HAD A TRUCK BEHIND HIM. GOT SIDEWAYS. LOST THE BACK END OFF THE CORNER. SIGNIFICANT CONTACT AND HITS THE WALL AGAIN. >>Michael: THAT’S WHY I LIKE TO CALL THEM SAFER BARRIERS. THEY’RE NOT SOFT. CHECK THAT TRUCK OUT. THE DRIVER IS OKAY. THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT PART. >>Rick: HE CARRIED ONE OF OUR CAMERAS. THIS IS A RIDE WITH THE 93.>>Phil: HE GOT HARD IN THE THROTTLE AND HAD TO PEDAL IT A BIT. HE WAS FEELING LOOSE. THEN HE LOST THAT BACK END. THIS IS THE RESULT.>>YOU OKAY, BUD?>>Rick: AROUND HE WENT. J.R. FITZPATRICK LOOKS TO CLIMB OUT>>Rick: THE NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES ON SPEED IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY CAMPING WORLD. EVERYTHING FOR THE RV LIFESTYLE AT GOOD SAM CLUB. BY RACE, ROCK AND REFRESH. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A TRIP TO CHICAGOLAND SPEEDWAY AND A TOYOTA TUNDRA, VISIT DOLLAR GENERAL. SAVE TIME, SAVE MONEY EVERY DAY! AND BY THE NEW FORD F-150 BUILT FORD TOUGH. NOTHING TOUGHER THAN THE MILE. J.R. FITZPATRICK FOUND OUT THAT OFF OF TURN NUMBER TWO. SLIDING OFF TURN TWO AND INTO THE WALL. RAY DUNLAP.>>I’LL GIVE YOU A QUICK UPDATE ON KYLE BUSCH. HE CAME ON THE RADIO AND TALKED TO HIS CREW CHIEF AND SAID GUYS, I’M SURPRISINGLY FREE. THEY WERE NOT EXPECTING THAT. HE SAID I’LL CALL IT A 3 OR 4 ON A 1-10 SCALE. AND PHILIPS CAME BACK WITH THE ANSWER, YES, THIS TRACK HAS TAKEN MORE RUBBER SINCE THEY HAD SPRINT CUP AND NATIONWIDE SERIES PRACTICE. THE CONDITIONS ARE DIFFERENT THAN WHEN THEY PRACTICED EARLIER. THEY PLAN ON MAKING A CHASSIS ADJUSTMENT ON THE FIRST PIT STOP. HERMIE?>>AND HENSLEY IS REPORTING HIS TRUCK IS BOTTOMING OUT. A PORTION OF THE FRAME ON THE TRUCK IS DRAGGING. THEY TALKED ABOUT RON SLOWING DOWN MORE UNTIL THE AIR PRESSURE BUILDS UP. THEY TOLD HIM TO CUT THE FANS OFF THAT COOL THE TIRES AND HELPS PREVENT AIR PRESSURE FROM GROWING. SO MAYBE THE AIR PRESSURE IN THE FRONT TIRES WILL BUILD UP MORE TO PREVENT THE TRUCK FROM BOTTOMING OUT.>>Rick: THANKS, HERMIE. OUR LUCKY DOG GOES TO CARL LONG. HE WILL GET A LAP BACK EARLY IN THIS RACE. WE THERE HAVE 33 STILL ON THE LEAD LAP FROM HERE AT THE MONSTER MILE. JUSTIN MARKS GRABBED THE POLE BUT HIS EARLY>>Rick: WE’RE UNDER OUR FIRST CAUTION OF THIS RACE. HAPPENED WHEN J.R. FITZPATRICK HAD GOTTEN IN TROUBLE.>>Phil: HE WAS PEDALLING THE BACK END AND IT CAME AROUND. NOTHING HE COULD DO THEN. HERE’S HIS ON-BOARD VIEW. LISTEN TO THE THROTTLE.>>Michael: MOTOR REVS UP LIKE THAT, THAT’S A LONELY FEELING. YOU KNOW YOU’RE IN TROUBLE BEFORE THE TROUBLE HAPPENS. WE TALK ABOUT THAT IN THE PRERACE HOW THIS TRACK IS SELF-CLEANING. THE TRUCKS GO FROM THE HIGH SIDE TO THE LOW SIDE. HE DEMONSTRATED THAT FOR US RIGHT QUICKLY.>>Rick: THEY HAVE FITZPATRICK’S TRUCK ON THE INFIELD. WHAT ELSE, HAPPENED?>>AUSTIN DILLON SAID HIS TRUCK WAS ON THE LOOSE SIDE. THEY MADE A BIG WEDGE ADJUSTMENT. SAW JOHNNY SAUTER COMING DOWN PIT ROAD. HE SAID HE’S PLOWING THROUGH THE CENTER AND HAS THE SPLITTER ON THE GROUND. THEY MADE QUITE A FEW ADJUSTMENTS. HE SAYS WHEN HIS SPLITTER IS DRAGGING, HE LOSES CONTROL OF THE REAR END.>>Rick: THE TRUCKS BACK IN LINE. THIS TIME FOLLOWING KEVIN HARVICK. AND IT LOOKS AS THOUGH HARVICK HAS CHOSE THE OUTSIDE LINE FOR THE RESTART. HE WILL LET HIS TEAM MADE GO TO THE INSIDE. THAT IS RON HORNADAY. THAT PUTS KYLE BUSCH ON THE INSIDE.>>Michael: HE LIKES THAT START THERE.>>Phil: GOT A GREAT START ON JUSTIN MARKS. DO THAT AGAIN. >>Rick: GREEN FLAG BACK IN THE AIR. KEVIN HARVICK WITH A GREAT RESTART. JUMPS OUT IN FRONT OF THE 33. THEY STAY ONE AND TWO. AND NOW A BOBBLE BUT BOTH AS THEY GO THROUGH TURN TWO. HARVICK ABLE TO HOLD ON. >>Phil: THESE TRUCKS ARE LOOKING GOOD. USUALLY THE MORE RUBBER THIS TRACK TAKES, A LOT OF TIME IT TIGHTENS IT UP. YOU CAN SEE KYLE BUSCH GOING FOR THE SECOND SPOT. >>Rick: TOOK IT AWAY FROM HORNADAY. THERE’S NO TRUCKS BETWEEN KEVIN HARVICK AND KYLE BUSCH ON THE RACE TRACK. >>Phil: THIS MIGHT BE INTERESTING. >>Michael: DEFINITELY. CAN’T WAY TO SEE JOEY COULTER. KYLE DECIDED HE DIDN’T LIKE PASSING RON ON THE INSIDE. GOT PUNCHED DOWN. >>Rick: TRAVIS KVAPIL ON THE INSIDE. JUSTIN MARKS ON THE OUTSIDE. HARVICK IS ABLE TO MOVE UP — EXCUSE ME, KVAPIL IS ABLE TO MOVE UP IN FRONT OF JUSTIN MARKS. MARKS HAS HIS HANDS FULL AS THAT TRUCK SKATED UP THE TRACK. >>Phil: YOU COULD SEE HIS HANDS THROUGH THE WINDSHIELD TRYING TO CATCH THAT TRUCK. THE BATTLE HEATING UP FOR THE THIRD SPOT. LOOK AT COLE WHITT IN THE RED BULL CHEVROLET MOVE IN ON HORNADAY.>>Rick: HAD A GREAT CLOSING AS THEY CAME THROUGH THREE AND FOUR. HE’S ALL OVER THE BACK BUMPER OF RON HORNADAY. >>Michael: EVERY TIME WE’VE SEEN HORNADAY, THAT TRUCK IS LOOSE. I TALKED TO THE ENGINEERS AT MICHAEL WALTRIP RACING. WE TALKED ABOUT THE RUBBER. THE MORE IT GETS, IT’S THE RIGHTER. THEY SAID LOOSER.>>Phil: THAT’S WHY WE HAVE ENGINEERS, I GUESS.>>Rick: COLE WHITT TOOK THIRD AWAY FROM HORNADAY. HORNADAY WAY UP THE TRACK. YOU TALKED ABOUT HIM BEING LOOSE AS HE TRIED TO FIND A WAY, THE FASTEST WAY AROUND THE TRACK.>>Phil: HE’S TRYING TO FIND GRIP RIGHT NOW. TRYING TO KEEP THE TRUCK UNDER HIM. KYLE MOVES IN ON KEVIN HARVICK.>>Rick: THIS IS WHAT EVERYONE PAID TO SEE. KEVIN HARVICK IN FRONT OF KYLE BUSCH. BUSCH WAS ALL OVER THE BACK BUMPER OF HARVICK. NOW TO THE OUTSIDE TRYING TO BATTLE FOR THE LEAD, A GREAT RUN BY KYLE BUSCH AS HE GOES DOWN THE BACK STRETCH. HAS THE LEAD. HE TOOK IT AWAY FROM HARVICK.>>Michael: OPTIONS. THAT’S WHAT RACE CAR DRIVERS LOOK. BUSCH TRIED HORNADAY ON THE LOW SIDE. DID THE SAME THING TO HARVICK. YOU HEARD HARVICK SAY IT’S WAY TOO LOOSE.>>Phil: WE KNOW HARVICK. THAT’S THE LAST TRUCK HE WANTED TO PASS HIM, THE 18 OF KYLE BUSCH.>>Rick: AND A TOYOTA TUNDRA IS UP FRONT. KYLE BUSCH WAS SO CLOSE TO WINNING THIS RACE A YEAR AGO. COULDN’T GET IT DONE. NELSON PIQUET JR. IN THE 8 GO BY THE 77 OF LOFTON. >>Michael: WHAT ABOUT PIQUET JR. AT NASHVILLE? AWESOME.>>Phil: TERRIFIC JOB.>>Rick: GRAY GHOST WITH A GREAT RUN IN THE 46. >>Michael: A TOP TEN IN NASHVILLE. MADE HIS DEBUT AT TALLADEGA. GOT A TOP TEN IN HIS FIRST START. >>Rick: OH, A BOBBLE BY HORNADAY. >>Phil: THAT MAY BE A SITUATION WHERE HE SAYS I BELIEVE HE GOT INTO MY LEFT REAR CORNER. HE DID NOT. RON HORNADAY GOT LOOSE. HE MAY HAVE ROBBED AIR OFF OF THAT REAR SPOILER. >>Michael: HORNADAY IS NOT GIVING UP. >>Phil: NEVER. >>Rick: AND KVAPIL STAYS A TRACTOR TRAILER BOTTOM OF THE TRACK TRYING TO STAY THAT SPOT AWAY. THAT’S FOR THE FOURTH POSITION. >>Phil: SIDE BY SIDE, THEY SLIDE OUT OF FOUR.>>Michael: AND THAT’S RIGHT. PLENTY OF TIME. STILL, THE 5 TRUCK HAS HAD A BAD YEAR. KVAPIL HASN’T RUN WELL AT ALL. HE’S A FORMER TRUCK SERIES CHAMPION. TO RUN LIKE HE HAS THIS YEAR IS FRUSTRATING. HE’S GOT A GOOD TRUCK AND HE WANTS TO GO. >>Phil: WE CONSIDERED HIM A CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENDER. HE ELECTED TO GET POINTS IN THE TRUCK SERIES. THE POINTS HAVEN’T ADDED UP TO WHAT THEY SHOULD BE.>>COLE WHITT CHALLENGING KEVIN HARVICK FOR SECOND. COLE WHITT HAS LOOKED STRONG SINCE THE DROP OF THE GREEN FLAG. >>Phil: LOOKED GOOD IN DAYTONA, TOO.>>Michael: IT’S BEEN IMPRESSIVE TO WATCH HIM FIGURE THIS OUT.>>Rick: TALK ABOUT YOUNG MAN, 19 YEARS OLD OUT OF ALPINE, CALIFORNIA. >>Phil: SOME KIDS COME ALONG AND FOR WHATEVER REASON, THEY HAVE IT. THAT’S A YOUNG MAN THAT HAS IT. STARTED OUT LAST YEAR IN THE K&N PRO SERIES — >>Rick: YOU HEARD HARVICK SAYING HE NEEDED AN ADJUSTMENT: KVAPIL OVER HARVICK TRYING TO TAKE AWAY THE FOURTH SPOT. >>Michael: ANOTHER TRUCK THAT NEEDS A BIG ADJUSTMENT. HIS TRUCK IS LOOSE.>>Rick: THOSE TWO BATTLE SIDE BY SIDE FOR THE FOURTH SPOT. HORNADAY HAD IT. KVAPIL TRYING TO TAKE IT AWAY. THE 88 LOOKED LIKE THE FASTEST TRUCK OF THE THREE. HE’S BEEN HELD UP BY THESE GUYS. KVAPIL BOBBLES. THAT ALLOWS HORNADAY TO PULL OUT TO A TRUCK LEAD. >>Phil: AND WATCH THE 5 OF KVAPIL. THIS IS WHERE THEY GET CLOSE. YOU SAW HORNADAY WIGGLE. HE HAD TO CHASE IT UP THE HILL. A COUPLE LAPS LATER, SAME INCIDENT. TRAVIS DOES A GREAT JOB KEEPING THAT TRUCK OFF OF HORNADAY.>>Michael: THAT WAS EXPERIENCE. HE WON THE SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP IN 03. YOU DON’T WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP WITHOUT WHEELING ONE OF THESE THINGS. THAT WAS A CASE WHERE TRAVIS HAD TO WHEEL IT HARD WITHOUT CRASHING.>>Phil: THAT WHOLE CHAMPIONSHIP YEAR, HE FAILED TO COMPLETE ONE LAP FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON. >>Rick: AND THAT WAS A HALF MILE RACE TRACK: AN IMPRESSIVE RUN. HOW ABOUT THE 88 OF MATT CRAFTON? HE’S TRYING TO TAKE THE SPOT FROM HORNADAY. >>Michael: YOU HAVE COULTER, PARKER. THE TON TEN IS JUST — THIS IS WHY I LOVE THE TRUCK SERIES. YOU HAVE A COUPLE CUP GUYS A COUPLE OF GUYS THAT WERE CUP RACERS. THEY FINISHED THEIR CAREERS AND NOW THEY’RE TRUCK RACING. AND A COUPLE 19-YEAR-OLDS.>>Rick: OUT IN FRONT, KYLE BUSCH, COLE WHITT IS 3 SECONDS BACK. THEN KEVIN HARVICK, RON HORNADAY. ONCE KYLE BUSCH GOT BY>>Rick: SUNDAY “NASCAR RACEDAY” REVS UP IN DOVER. DENNY HAMLIN WILL JOIN US LIVE. WE DISCUSS THE DRIVER FEUDS THAT GOT PHYSICAL IN DARLINGTON. THAT’S “NASCAR RACEDAY” BUILT BY HOME DEPOT FROM DOVER SUNDAY, 10:30 EASTERN LIVE ON SPEED.>>Phil: WHAT A GREAT BATTLE FROM FOURTH BACK. RON HORNADAY HOLDING THIS GROUP UP.>>Michael: YOU SAW WHEN COLE WHITT CAUGHT HARVICK. RON COULDN’T AFFORD TO LAY OVER. LOOK AT HILL WIGGLE THE TRUCK. LOOK AT THE TRUCKS LINED UP. HE GIVES UP ONE SPOT, HE MIGHT NOT EVER GET BACK IN.>>Rick: KYLE BUSCH HAS A 2.7 SECOND LEAD OVER COLE WHITT. COLE WHITT HAS CLOSED THE GAP A LITTLE BIT. HE’S CHIPPING AWAY AT THE LEAD AND SUCH AN IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE BY THE YOUNG MAN.>>Michael: THERE’S GO KYLE BUSCH. COLE WHITT. SCOTT SPEED WON IN A RED BULL TRUCK IN 2008. THEY HAVE TASTED VICTORY LANE HERE AT THE MONSTER MILE. LOOKS LIKE COLE WHITT WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO DO IT TONIGHT. >>Phil: KEVIN HARVICK HOLDS DOWN THE THIRD POSITION. HE FINISHED IN THE FOURTH SPOT AT MARTINSVILLE. ALWAYS COMPETITIVE IN THIS TRUCK. AND I DARE TO SAY WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED IF HE HAD MORE TIME.>>Michael: YOU THINK HARVICK WOKE UP MONDAY MORNING AND SAID I FEEL LIKE BEING A BAD BOY THIS WEEK? WILL YOU SPONSOR MY TRUCK?>>Phil: I DON’T KNOW. HE CLAIMED IT’S A COUPLE WEEKS IN THE MAKING. NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED IN DARLINGTON.>>Michael: AND THERE’S HORNADAY. WIGGLING SIDEWAYS. MATT CRAFTON CAN’T GET THE DEAL DONE. RON RUNS IT HARD INTO THE CORNER. MATT PASSES HIM OFF AND THEY CHANGE POSITIONS AGAIN. WHAT A GREAT RUN. THAT WAS SCARY FOR MATT CRAFTON. DID YOU SEE HIM DRIVING THAT THING?>>Phil: LOOKED LIKE THE 5 TRUCK MAY HAVE GOT IN THE BACK OF MATT CRAFTON. REMEMBER, IT WAS TRAVIS KVAPIL TRYING TO GET BY THE 33. THEY SWITCHED POSITIONS WITH THE 88. NOW THE 88 IS TRYING TO GET BY THE 33. NEITHER ONE CAN DO IT. >>Michael: I’M NOT CONVINCED THEY WON’T CRASH. HERE’S KVAPIL ON THE INSIDE. WE SAW WHAT HAPPENED WHEN HE WAS ON THE INSIDE EARLIER. RON IS — LOOK AT THESE TRUCKS LINED BEHIND HIM. SOME OF THE TOP TEN GUYS ARE ON HIS BUMPER. >>Rick: THREE VETERANS HERE AND BEHIND THEM IS PARKER KLIGERMAN WATCHING THEM BATTLE. >>Michael: IS THAT KLIGERMAN SAYING, IS THIS HOW WE’RE SUPPOSED TO DO THIS? THIS IS ONLY 30-40 LAPS IN. COME ON! >>Phil: AND KLIGERMAN JUMPED IN BRAD KESLOWSKI’S NATIONWIDE CAR DURING PRACTICE. HE’S A LITTLE UNDER THE WEATHER. A CHANCE THAT PARKER COULD RACE THE CAR. DIDN’T FIT THAT WELL. HAD TO ADJUST THE PEDALS AND THE STEERING WELL. HE DID A NICE JOB IN THAT CAR AND DOING A NICE JOB IN THIS RACE. HAS THE 22, JOEY COULTER, ANOTHER R.C.R. CAR BEHIND HIM. >>Michael: THAT TRUCK IS STRONG. JOEY COULTER IS DOING A GOOD JOB FIGURING THE SERIES OUT. ANY TIME YOU COME TO DOVER AND IN THE TOP TEN, YOU THINK YOU HAVE IT FIGURED OUT. IF YOU CAN DO IT AT DOVER, YOU FEEL LIKE YOU CAN DO IT ANYWHERE.>>Rick: JAMES BUESCHER JUST BEHIND HIM. >>Michael: THE FUNAI ON BOARD. WE’VE HAD 11 DIFFERENT WINNERS HERE. STRATEGY HAS PLAYED INTO A LOT OF THOSE VICTORIES. YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT ALL AT DOVER. >>Phil: TALKED ABOUT THE RACE LAST YEAR, 2010. JAMES BUESCHER FINISHED SECOND LAST YEAR.>>Rick: HOW ABOUT THE SECOND PLACE FINISH LAST RACE IN NASHVILLE FOR NELSON PIQUET JR.? WE HAVE PROBLEMS. THE 33 HIT THE WALL. HORNADAY. SLOWING NOW ON THE RACE TRACK. YOU TALK ABOUT AN ILL-HANDLING RACE TRUCK. NOW THE RIGHT SIDE SCRAPING THE WALL AT DOVER.>>Michael: HE MIGHT HAVE JUST GOT HIDE UP THERE. I DON’T SEE ANY DAMAGE, RICK. >>Phil: THERE HE IS. MIGHT HAVE GOT LOOSE IN THE CORNER.>>Michael: I DON’T THINK HE HIT IT. >>Rick: YOU’RE RIGHT.>>Phil: HE USED ALL THE TRACK UP THOUGH. >>Michael: WE SAID THEY WOULD PROBABLY CRASH. THAT’S AS CLOSE AS YOU’LL GET TO CRASHING WITHOUT DOING IT. NOW HIS HEARD IS BEATING FASTER THAN IT WAS WHEN WE SAW HIM SIDEWAYS.>>Phil: THE 46 TRUCK, BRAD SWEET. HERE’S TODD BODINE. THESE TRUCKS BATTLING FOR THE 19th POSITION. >>Rick: HINDSIGHT IS 2020. IS THIS A SITUATION WHERE RON HORNADAY SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT THE TRUCK ON PIT ROAD?>>Michael: OH, NO, NO. HE DIDN’T KNOW YET. THE TIRES HAVEN’T COME UP TO TEMPERATURE YET. OBVIOUSLY THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN. HE DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION TO PIT YET, RICK. YOU TALK ABOUT TODD BODINE. HE’S A CHAMPION. LAST YEAR’S CHAMPION. THIS ISN’T CHAMPIONSHIP FORM HE STARTED THIS SEASON IN.>>Rick: LOOK AT 18. THAT’S KYLE BUSCH RIGHT THERE IN THE 18 ABOUT TO PUT SOME VERY GOOD TRUCKS A LAP DOWN.>>Phil: HE’S GOT BRAD SWEET, TODD BODINE. >>Michael: OH, SPIN! >>Rick: AROUND GOES THE 46 WITH THE 32 OF BRAD SWEET.>>CAUTION IS OUT.>>HOLD IT, HOLD IT.>>Phil: THAT’S AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN COME TO WRECKING.>>Michael: THAT WAS A WRECK, WASN’T IT? TRUCKS WERE DODGING HIM.>>Phil: THAT’S AMAZING. >>Rick: HE CAME VERY CLOSE TO HITTING KYLE BUSCH AS HE WAS SLIDING AROUND THE TRACK. JUST AS KYLE BUSCH WAS CATCHING UP, YOU GUYS TALK ABOUT IT, WHEN YOU SEE THE LEADER BEHIND YOU, YOU THINK I HAVE TO GET ON THE WHEEL AND CAN’T LET HIM BY ME. THAT’S LOOKS LIKE IT WAS WITH BRAD. >>Phil: AND WE SAW HOW HARD THOSE GUYS WERE RUNNING TOO, KNOWING KYLE BUSCH WAS COMING.>>Rick: TAKE A LOOK AT THE 46, THE WHITE TRUCK.>>Phil: BRAD SWEET ON THE INSIDE. SEE IF THEY MAKE CONTACT. >>Michael: OH, YEAH. >>Phil: A NUDGE. SO SLIGHT. THAT’S ALL IT TAKES HERE. WATCH CRAIG GO. GOING TO SLIDE ALL THE WAY BACK UP THE RACE TRACK. TURN THE WHEEL TO THE LEFT AT EXACTLY THE RIGHT MOMENT TO KEEP THE TRUCK OUT OF THE WALL. THAT’S KYLE BUSCH ON THE OUTSIDE. THERE’S THE N — THE 18.>>Michael: WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A TOP 20 TRUCK. KYLE ALMOST GOT CRASHED.>>Rick: SPEEDS UP, GOES TO THE OUTSIDE TO AVOID CONTACT AND STAYS SAFE. HE WILL STAY OUT IN FRONT THAT WILL BUNCH THE FIELD BACK UP. COLE WHITT WILL NOW HAVE A SHOT AT KYLE BUSCH ON THIS RESTART. KEVIN HARVICK WILL RESTART THIRD. CRAFTON, KVAPIL. THOSE 2 ARE THE TOP FIVE AND ON TO PIT ROAD COMES OUR LEADER. HERMIE?>>THE 60 OF COLE WHITT IMPRESSIVE ON THE TRACK AND ON THE RADIO. HE TOLD HIS CREW CHIEF HE DIDN’T HAVE A LOT OF COMPLAINTS ON THE LONG RUN. A LITTLE FREE. FOUR TIRES AND SUNOCO FUEL. RAY?>>KYLE BUSCH HAD A BIG LEAD ON THE REST OF THE TRUCKS BEHIND HIM. HE WILL COME IN AND MAKE AN AIR PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT ON THE RIGHT HERE. KYLE CALLED IN AND WANTED TRACK BAR. THAT WILL HELP TIGHTEN HIM UP. FOR KEVIN HARVICK, THEY’RE MAKING A LOT OF ADJUSTMENTS. HE SAID THIS THING IS SO LOOSE. WEDGE WRENCH IS IN THE LEFT. WENT AIR PRESSURE ON THE RIGHT SIDE. HARVICK GOES OUT BEHIND THE NUMBER 60 OF COLE WHITT. THE FRONT 3 COME IN AND LEAVE IN THE SAME ORDER.>>Rick: YOU CAN SEE THE RACE OFF OF PIT ROAD. JUSTIN MARKS JUST COMING OFF OF PIT ROAD. >>Rick: THE REASON WE’RE UNDER CAUTION, THE 46 GOES AROUND AND A WILD RIDE HE HAD.>>Michael: I DON’T LIKE THAT.>>Phil: YOU CAN’T SEE THE INDICATION THAT HE HAD CONTACT.>>Michael: THAT SHOWS YOU HOW CLOSE OUT OF CONTROL THESE GUYS ARE. >>Rick: A LITTLE SCRAPE THERE WITH BRAD SWEET. SWEET GOES BY. KYLE BUSCH GOES ON THE HIGH SIDE TO AVOID THIS. AS SOON AS HE GOES PAST ON THE HIGH SIDE, CRAIG COMES BACK U>>Rick: TOMORROW IT’S THE WILD WEST. THE ROLEX SPORTS CAR SERIES IS OFFERING A $25,000 BOUNTY TO THE TEAM THAT BREAKS THE GANASSI WINNING STREAK. DON’T MISS THE ACTION FROM THE VIRGINIA INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY. AT 5:00 ON SPEED. THE REASON WE’RE UNDER CAUTION, FOR THE SECOND TIME TODAY — >>Phil: SLIGHT CONTACT BETWEEN THE 32 OF BRAD SWEET AND THE 46 RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR LEADER, KYLE BUSCH.>>Michael: I DON’T THINK WE SAW CRAIG PUT HIS BRAKES ON. HAD A BUNCH OF PEDALS IN THERE. DIDN’T USE ANY OF THEM. >>Phil: HE USED THE THROTTLE TO PROPEL THE TRUCK DOWN. THESE BANKS, NORMALLY YOU SPIN AND YOU GO UP AND THEN BACK DOWN. HE SHOT DOWN THE TRACK AND THAT’S WHEN HE MADE SLIGHT CONTACT WITH SWEET. >>Rick: AARON’S LUCKY DOG GOES TO THE 39. HE WILL BE BACK ON THE LEAD LAP. WE’VE GOT 25 THAT WILL BE ON THE LEAD LAP FOR THE START OF THIS RACE. RESTART. COLE WHITT WILL BE ON THE INSIDE NOW. KYLE BUSCH LOOKS AS THOUGH LEADER LIKES THE OUTSIDE LINE. >>Michael: HE’S HAD SUCCESS UP THERE. HE’S MADE ALL HIS PASSES OUT THERE.>>Rick: MATT CRAFTON HAS BEEN STRONG. HE WILL START IN THE FOURTH. KEVIN HARVICK IN THE THIRD SPOT IN ROW NUMBER 2. COMING OUT OF TURN FOUR, GREEN FLAG IN THE AIR. WE’RE UNDERWAY.>>Phil: HUGE JUMP BY KYLE BUSCH. >>Michael: TRYING TO BRING MATT CRAFTON WITH HIM. CHECK OUT HOW THESE TRUCKS PICK UP THE RUBBER. THE DARKNESS GOES AWAY WHEN THEY RUN UNDER CAUTION. THE TIRES PICK UP THE RUBBER ON THE ROAD. WHEN THEY GO GREEN, IT GOES BACK DOWN. THIS TIRE DEAL IS INTERESTING. THE GUYS SAY WE NEED MORE RUBBER! THEY GIVE THEM TIRES THAT PUT RUBBER DOWN. THEN IT’S TOO MUCH RUBBER. >>Rick: WE TALKED ABOUT HOW SMART THE ENGINEERS WERE. WE’LL SEE NOW WITH THE RUBBER AND THE TIRES.>>Michael: YOU HAVE TO FIGURE, TO GIVE KEVIN HARVICK A CHANCE TO WORK ON HIS TRUCK. HE’LL COME OUT SMOKING.>>Phil: AND THIS WILL BE AT LEAST A TWO PIT STOP RACE. FIRST COMING AT LAP 47. >>Rick: KYLE BUSCH IN FRONT OF COLE WHITT. HARVICK, HORNADAY.>>Phil: NORMALLY THESE DRIVERS ONLY HAVE FOUR SETS OF DRIVERS FOR THE WEEKEND. THEY WERE ALLOWED 5 1/2 SETS OF TIRES THIS WEEKEND. WE KNOW THIS TRACK HISTORICALLY HAS BEEN A TIRE WEAR SITUATION.>>Phil: I THINK IF YOU’RE GOING TO WIN THIS RACE, YOU’LL HAVE NEW TIRES LET ON PIT ROAD. >>Michael: CHECK OUT HOW MUCH OF A MOMENTUM TRACK THIS IS.>>Rick: TROUBLE! AROUND GOES BRAD SWEET IN THE 32.>>Michael: THE CLEANING EFFECT.>>WHO THAT WAS?>>Rick: THAT WAS BRAD SWEET.>>Phil: I THINK HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE 20 OF JOANNA LONG. LOOKS LIKE SHE WAS IN THE VICINITY ANYWAY. >>Michael: I BELIEVE I’D SIT THERE IF WAS BRAD. YOU CAN SEE THE WATER RUNNING OUT OF THAT THING. MAYBE OIL, TOO.>>Rick: HE’S GOING TO TAKE IT UP ON THE RACE TRACK.>>Michael: MAYBE MAKE A HARD LEFT INTO THE GARAGE AREA, THE BACK WAY DOWN THERE.>>Rick: HE WAS 20th AT THE TIME OF THIS CAUTION.>>Michael: HE WAS RIGHT IN THAT BATTLE THAT WE SAW THAT BROUGHT OUT OUR LAST CAUTION, RICK. BATTLING INSIDE THE TOP 20. JOANNA LONG WAS ON THE INSIDE OF BRAD. SHE DOES A GREAT JOB. WATCH THIS, PHIL.>>Phil: AMAZING. THAT’S ABOUT WHEN WOE SAW HER. HE WAS COMPLETELY SIDEWAYS, BACKWARDS NEXT TO HER. >>Michael: SHE HAD TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH. ANY EVASIVE ACTION, SHE WOULD HAVE WENT IN THE WALL, TOO.>>Phil: KEPT THE TRUCK STRAIGHT. THAT’S HER COMING STRAIGHT AT US. >>Michael: THEY MADE CONTACT. LOOKED LIKE JOANNA WAS IN THERE MAYBE BRAD CAME DOWN AND DIDN’T SEE HER THERE. >>Phil: THAT’S WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE TO ME.>>Rick: YOU HEARD HIM SAY, WHO WAS THAT! THAT WAS JOANNA LONG. >>Michael: I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE DIDN’T CRASH.>>Phil: IT’S AMAZING.>>Michael: CAN’T HARDLY TELL WHAT KIND OF SHAPE THEY WERE IN GOING INTO THE TURN. >>Phil: THAT TRUCK SPUN AROUND HER. IT WAS COMPLETELY SIDEWAYS, BACKWARDS BESIDE HER. AS SHE WENT BY, IT JUMPED UP AROUND HER FROM THE BACK SIDE.>>Rick: BODINE WAS ON PIT ROAD.>>Michael: TALKED ABOUT TODD BODINE EARLIER, THIS IS NOT TYPICAL OF HIS TEAM. HE LOST 20 POINTS TO THE LEADER IN THE LAST THREE RACES. THINGS ARE GOING IN A BAD DIRECTION FOR THIS TEAM. ON PIT ROADWORKING ON THAT THING EARLY, THAT’S NOT A GOOD SIGN.>>Rick: HERMIE, WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?>>TODD BODINE CAME DOWN PIT ROAD. HE’S FIGHTING A TIGHT CONDITION. THAT’S ODD. EVERYBODY ELSE HAS COMPLAINED ABOUT BEING LOOSE. RON HORNADAY WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT HIS TRUCK BEING SO LOOSE, HE COULD NOT EVEN GIVE THE TRUCK ANY WHEEL ON ENTRY TO THE CORNER. COULD NOT TURN IT TO GET IN THE CORNER WITHOUT IT BEING LOOSE. THEY MADE A MAJOR WEDGE AND TRACK BAR ADJUSTMENT. RUN SAID IT HELPED HIM A LITTLE BIT. RAY?>>YESTERDAY I WATCHED THE 2 TRUCK THROUGHOUT PRACTICE. THE BEGINNING, KEVIN HARVICK SAID HIS TRUCK WAS WICKED AND EVIL. IT WAS BOUNCING THE LEFT FRONT. AS HE CAME OFF TURN FOUR, HE SAID THE REAR END WAS NOT IN THE TRACK. SO HIS CREW CHIEF MADE SOME BIG CHANGES. THEY CHANGED THE CAMBER IN THE LEFT FRONT. TODAY KEVIN SAID WHATEVER THE DIFFERENCE IS ON THIS RACE TRACK, THIS TRUCK IS NOT RESPONDING. HE SAID WE’RE TERRIBLE. THE FRONT IS NOT IN THE TRACK AND I DO NOT HAVE CONTROL COMING UP OFF. SO FAR THE ADJUSTMENTS THEY MADE TO MAKE KEVIN HARVICK BETTER HAVE NOT WORKED.>>Rick: KEVIN HARVICK STARTED ON THE FRONT ROW. IT WAS KYLE BUSCH THAT WAS ABLE TO GET BY HIM FOR THE LEAD. KYLE BUSCH OUT IN FRONT THINKING A YEAR AGO ONE WAS STOLEN FROM HIM AT THIS RACE TRACK. HE CAME VERY CLOSE TO GETTING CAUGHT UP IN AN INCIDENT>>Rick: ALL-STAR RACE TICKET PACKAGE AND RECEIVE A FREE RACE PIT PASS AND FOOD AND DRINK. JASON LIGHTS IS YOUR AARONS LUCKY DOG RECIPIENT. >>Michael: TALKED WITH JAY YESTERDAY ABOUT HIS TRUCK. WASN’T HAPPY WITH IT. THEY FELT LIKE THEY NEEDED TO REBUILD IT. DOESN’T SEEM TO WORK. THIS TRUCK HAS BEEN STRUGGLING.>>Phil: HE HAD A TOP FIVE FINISH — >>Michael: LAST YEAR. >>Phil: HE FINISHED FOURTH LAST YEAR. >> MICHAEL: THE TOP FOUR FINISHERS — >>Rick: THEY THINK THE TRACK IS RUBBERING UP DIFFERENTLY THAN A YEAR AGO. SO ALL THE TEAMS ARE HAVING MOSTLY THE SAME PROBLEM AS THEY WORK ON LAP 59. >>Michael: SEE HOW WHITE IT IS?>>Phil: THEY CLEAN IT OFF DURING THE CAUTION LAPS. >>Rick: GREEN FLAG BACK IN THE AIR. KYLE BUSCH IN THE FRONT. COLE WHITT IS SECONDS. TWO BY TWO BATTLING FOR THE SECOND SPOT. >>Michael: THEY GET IT DIRTY IN A HURRY. >>Phil: KEVIN HARVICK IS OUTSIDE COLE WHITT. THE BATTLE FOR SECOND, SIDE BY SIDE.>>Michael: HOW BOUNCY THEY ARE IN THE CORNER.>>Rick: TRAVIS KVAPIL ON THE OUTSIDE OF MATT CRAFTON. TRYING TO TAKE FOURTH AWAY. COLE WHITT DROPS BACK TO THE THIRD. KEVIN HARVICK TRYING TO COME ON. WHITT BATTLES BACK ON THE INSIDE.>>Michael: AND MAYBE A LITTLE CONTACT BETWEEN THOSE TWO TRUCKS. >>Rick: WHAT A RUN BY PARKER KLIGERMAN. HE’S BEHIND THE 5 OF TRAVIS KVAPIL.>>Phil: WE’RE LOOKING AT THE MOMENTUM THAT HARVICK HAD.>>Michael: IF I’M COLE WHITT’S SPOTTER, I SAID YOU’RE IN A VULNERABLE SPOT HERE. BE COOL. COMPLETE THE PASS AND BE COOL. DON’T OVERDO IT. YOU CAN SEE HE’S GOING TO MAKE THE PASS. >>Phil: LOOKS LIKE KEVIN GOT LOOSE. HAD TO CHASE HIS TRUCK. HERE COMES KEVIN HARVICK AGAIN. HAD I’M HE CLEAR BUT — >>Michael: HE’S SIDEWAYS! >>Rick: COLE WHITT CATCHES IT. HARVICK TAKES ADVANTAGE. GETS BY AS DOES TRAVIS KVAPIL. TRAVIS KVAPIL WILL BATTLE FOR IT. >>Phil: COLE WHITT LOOKS LIKE HE MADE CONTACT WITH THE RIGHT REAR CORNER OF TRAVIS KVAPIL. >>Rick: HERE COMES PARKER KLIGERMAN TO THE INSIDE OF KVAPIL.>>Michael: IF I’M HIS SPOTTER, I’M SAYING SERIOUSLY, CALM DOWN. YOU DIDN’T LISTEN TO ME LAST TIME. >>Rick: PARKER KLIGERMAN ON THE INSIDE.>>Michael: WHAT A BATTLE. IT’S BEEN GOING ON ALL DAY. >>Phil: KLIGERMAN GETS LOOSE. TRAVIS KVAPIL HAS A BIT OF AN ADVANTAGE FROM THE OUTSIDE.>>Rick: BUESCHER GETS BY HORNADAY. HERE COMES THE 13 OF JOHNNY SAUTER TRYING TO GO BY THE 33. A DIFFERENT BETWEEN SECOND AND THIRD AND HARVICK HOLDS ON TO SECOND. KLIGERMAN AND CRAFTON ROUND OUT THE TOP FIVE.>>Phil: AND HERE’S DAVID STARR.>>Michael: HE THOUGHT STARR WAS GOING DOWN TO THE BOTTOM. HE CROWDED UP DILLON. GOT THE SPOT. WASN’T PRETTY.>>Rick: SIDE BY SIDE CONTINUES. DAVID STAR. DILLON. STARR 13th. DILLON TAKES THE SPOT AWAY. A GREAT BATTLE WITH RICKY CARMICHAEL. THE TOYOTA OF BRENDON GAUGHAN ON THE OUTSIDE, THE 62.>>GAUGHAN RUNNING IN THE 17th SPOT. THE 93 ON THE INSIDE, SEIG. AND TODD BODINE JUST BEHIND HIS TEAMMATE. LAST TIME BY, KYLE BUSCH RAN A 23.95. THAT SHOWS YOU THE DIFFERENCE IN LAP SPEED. >>Michael: YOU CAN SEE THE TRAFFIC TODD BODINE IS DEALING WITH. IT’S AMAZING. TALK ABOUT CLEAN AIR. THESE TRUCKS RUNNING 160, 170 MILES AN HOUR DOWN THE SPEEDWAY. YOU GET A TRUCK IN FRONT OF YOU, IT CHANGES THE TRUCK HANDLING. SOMETIMES IT MAKES YOU SLOW DOWN. YOU HAVE TO WAIT ON HIM. YOUR TIMING IS OFF. YOU GET CLEAR, MAYBE TODD CAN GET UP IN THE TOP TEN AND WORK HIS WAY TO THE FRONT.>>Rick: DILLON WORKING THE HIGH SIDE. STARR BENEATH HIM. >>Phil: WE SAW THAT WITH COLE WHITT BATTLING HARVICK. WE KNOW THAT COLE WHITT HAS A FAST TRUCK. WASN’T ABLE TO GET BY KEVIN HARVICK. ENDED UP GETTING LOOSE, CHASING THE TRUCK UPHILL. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED. HERE HE IS RACING REALLY HARD WITH KEVIN HARVICK. WATCH HIS HANDS NOW. HE GETS SIDEWAYS A COUPLE DIFFERENT TIMES. CHASES IT. LOSES TWO OR THREE SPOTS. WATCH THIS SUPER SLOW-MO RIGHT HERE. GOING COMPLETELY SIDEWAYS. LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE OF THE ATTITUDE OF THE 60 TRUCK AND THE 2 TRUCK. >>Michael: YOU CAN SEE HIM WORKING THAT WHEEL. >>Phil: KEEP WATCHING. THIS IS WHEN IT LOOKS LIKE CRAFTON BOUNCED OFF THE FENCE. THERE’S MATT.>>Michael: WHOA! >>Phil: I WOULDN’T SAY BOUNCED OFF HIM BUT HE MAY HAVE SCRAPED HIM A TOUCH. >>Rick: GOT THE DOVER STRIPE. >>Michael: AND JUSTIN LOFTON INSIDE THE TOP TEN PASSING HORNADAY WHAT A GREAT RUN FOR JUSTIN.>>Phil: A THIRD PLACE FINISH LAST YEAR. YOU TALKED ABOUT THOSE TRUCKS HAVING A CAREER BEST, THAT WAS ONE OF THEM. >>Rick: LOOKS LIKE DILLON WAS THINKING ABOUT MAKING IT THREE WIDE. HAS PIQUET IN FRONT OF HIM. >>Michael: I USUALLY GET NERVOUS WITH TALLADEGA. IT’S CRAZY. BUT THIS IS JUST AS CRAZY. WE’RE GETTING TOWARDS HALFWAY. WE’VE SEEN IT FROM THE GREEN FLAG, SIDE BY SIDE AND SIDEWAYS.>>Rick: WE HAVE KYLE BUSCH AND KEVIN HARVICK RUNNING ONE AND TWO HERE. OF THE TOP TEN, FIVE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR THEIR FIRST CAREER WIN. COULD HAPPEN HERE AT THE MONSTER MILE. RAY?>>HEY, GUYS. WE SAW THE 33 AND THE 3 RACING TOGETHER THERE. BOTH OF THOSE GUYS TERRIBLE LOOSE. TALKING ON THE RADIO. WE HAVE A BIG HIT BY RICKY CARMICHAEL. INTO THE HALL. DESTROYS THE FRONT END OF THAT TRUCK.>>YEAH, I’M ALL RIGHT.>>Rick: GOOD TO HEAR THAT. >>Phil: THANK GOODNESS FOR THE SAFER BARRIER.>>Rick: LOOK AT THE DESTRUCTION OF THAT TRUCK. >>Michael: THAT THING — >>Phil: MAY HAVE BRN A SITUATION WHERE HE GOT LOSE, OVERCORRECTED. SHOT THAT THING IN THE WALL HEAD ON. >>Rick: THAT TRUCK IS DESTROYED. LOOK AT THE SPLITTER. IT’S STUCK UNDERNEATH THE WALL.>>Phil: HARD CONTACT. GREAT TO HEAR RICKY AND HIS CREW CHIEF.>>Rick: YEAH. YOU SEE HIM CLIMBING OUT OF THE TRUCK. WHAT AN AMAZING TESTAMENT TO THE SAFETY HERE OF THESE VEHICLES AND THOSE SAFER BARRIERS.>>Michael: I THINK HE’S OKAY. HE AIN’T GREAT. YOU CAN TELL HE’S SLOWLY WORKING HIS WAY OUT OF THE TRUCK AND GETTING HIS HELMET OFF.>>Phil: A SHOT LIKE THAT WILL RING YOUR BELL AND QUITE POSSIBLY KNOCK THE WIND OUT OF YOU. HE SOUNDED FAIRLY GOOD. HERE’S ANOTHER LOOK. YOU CAN SEE HIM IN BETWEEN TWO TRUCKS. HE DOES GET SIDEWAYS AND OVERCORRECTED IT. MAN, DOES THAT TRUCK HIT THE WALL HARD. >>Rick: YOU TALKED ABOUT IT, 160, 170 INTO THE TURN.>>Michael: YOU DON’T SEE WRECKS THAT HARD THAT OFTEN. THAT TRUCK CLOBBERED THE OUTSIDE WALL. HE SHOT UP THERE AT SUCH AN EXTREME ANGLE.>>Phil: ALMOST PERPENDICULAR TO THE OUTSIDE WALL. >>Michael: HEAD ON. >>Rick: THIS IS THE THIRD DNF FOR RICKY.>>Michael: CUT A TIRE MAYBE. ONE OF THE TRUCKS GOT INTO THE WALL WHEN THEY RAN OVER THAT DEBRIS. >>Phil: HERE’S TODD. YOU CAN SEE RICKY GET SIDEWAYS AND OVERCORRECT. NO CONTACT FROM ANY OTHER VEHICLE. JUST LOOSE.>>Rick: LOOK AT ALL THE DEBRIS AS YOU MENTIONED. >>Michael: LOOK AT THIS WHITE TRUCK COMING THROUGH HERE.>>Rick: THE 17 OF TIMOTHY PETERS.>>Phil: 46 OF CRAIG GOESSE.>>Michael: LOOK AT THAT SWAY BAR. THAT AREA RIGHT THERE. LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT SUCKER. GOT UNDER HIS HOOD. YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS LEFT UNDER THERE.>>Rick: THERE’S THE FRONT ENDS THEY’RE TRYING TO TEAR OFF THE TRUCK. TRUCK IS COMING ON TO PIT ROAD. 1 OF THOSE BEING TIMOTHY PETERS AND THE 17. I WAS TALKING TO BUTCH HILTON THIS MORNING. HIS SON IS GOING TO GRADUATE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHARLOTTE WITH A MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DEGREE. REALLY PROUD OF HIM. BUTCH WANTED TO GIVE HIM A SHOUT-OUT. LET’S DO THAT.>>Rick: AGAIN, THAT’S THE SPLITTER STUCK UNDERNEATH THE SAFER BARRIER. LOOK AT THE BE BRIS — DEBRIS COMING OFF OF THAT TRUCK. ALL OVER. THEN YOU HAVE THE>>Rick: I’M NOT SURE RAY KNOWS HOW TO RIDE A BACK BUT HE WAS ABLE TO PUSH IT THERE. TAKE A LOOK AT THE DESTRUCTION OF THAT 4 OF RICKY CARMICHAEL. THANK GOODNESS HE CLIMBED OUT OF THAT TRUCK. TAKE A LOOK HOW THAT HAPPENED.>>Michael: JUST LOOK AT THIS ANGLE. REMEMBER, PEOPLE, HE’S RUNNING 140 OR 50 MILES AN HOUR DOWN IN THE CENTER OF THAT TURN.>>Rick: HE WAS CHECKED OUT AND RELEASED FROM THE CARE CENTER ALREADY.>>Phil: WE SAW THE 7 TRUCK RAN OVER SOMETHING, CUT A TIRE DOWN AND MAKE CONTACT WITH THE OUTSIDE WALL. WHAT A HARD RIGHT HAND.>>A LOT OF DEBRIS DOWN HERE. A LOT OF DEBRIS.>>Michael: THAT HURT ME. CAN YOU IMAGINE HITTING THE WALL LIKE THAT?>>Phil: YEAH, BEFORE THEY HAD SAFER BARRIERS.>>Rick: THEY PULLED THE TRUCK INTO THE GARAGE AREA. RICKY CARMICHAEL WAS CHECKED OUT AND RELEASED.>>Rick: LAST MINUTE CLEANUP AFTER RICKY CARMICHAEL GOT INTO THE WALL. HE’S IN THE INFIELD WITH HERMIE.>>TELL US WHAT HAPPENED AND WHAT LED UP TO THAT. >>THANKS FOR THE CONCERN AND THE TESTAMENT TO NASCAR SAFETY FEATURES. WE WERE PICKING THEM OFF. WE WERE LIKE 14th. STARTED 20th. I WAS BEHIND THE 81. HE BOBBLED. WHEN I BARRELLY TOUCHED THE BRAKE, THE BACK END CAME AROUND AND SNAPPED. I HAVEN’T HAD A LICK LIKE THAT IN AWHILE. REMINDS ME OF MY MOTOCROSS DAYS. BUT JUST DISAPPOINTMENT. WE WERE JUST PICKING THEM OFF ONE AT A TIME LIKE WE NORMALLY DO. WE’LL GO ON TO 1 1/2 MILES AT CHARLOTTE NEXT WEEK. GLAD I’M ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.>>SO RICKY CARMICHAEL IN SURPRISINGLY GOOD SPIRITS. WE TALKED ABOUT BEFORE WE GOT ON THE AIR WHAT A GREAT JOB BY NASCAR. THAT WAS A NASTY HIT. THEY BROUGHT THE TRUCK BY HERE. A LONG TIME SINCE I’VE SEEN ONE TORN UP LIKE THAT. WE’RE GLAD THAT RICKY CARMICHAEL IS HERE TO TELL US ABOUT THAT. >>Rick: AND KYLE BUSCH, KEVIN HARVICK IN SECOND. JAMES BUESCHER GETS THE LUCKY DOG. HE’S IN THE 21st POSITION. 23 TRUCKS ON THE LEAD LAP. AND HORNADAY IN THAT 23rd POSITION.>>Michael: HE AND TODD BODINE AND A BUNCH OF TRUCKS PITTED THERE. IF THIS GETS CRAZY AT THE END, YOU MIGHT SEE STRATEGY THERE.>>Phil: HORNADAY HAS 30 LAPS MORE FUEL THAN THE TRUCKS IN THE TOP TEN.>>Rick: KEVIN HARVICK ON THE INSIDE, KYLE BUSCH ON THE OUTSIDE. GREEN FLAG IN THE AIR. LOOK AT HIM CHASE KYLE BUSCH UP THE RACE TRACK. HARVICK USING ALL OF THE TRUCK GETTING INTO TURN ONE. >>Phil: CAN HE CLEAR HIM? NOT AT THIS END OF THE TRACK. >>Rick: THEY STAY SIDE BY SIDE DOWN THE BACK STRETCH. HARVICK ON THE INSIDE. BUSCH ON THE OUTSIDE. GOT A GREAT RUN. KYLE BUSCH CLEARS THAT 2 OF KEVIN HARVICK.>>Phil: THAT TRUCK OF KYLE BUSCH IS FAST.>>Michael: HE DOESN’T WANT TO MESS AROUND WITH HARVICK LONG, DID HE?>>Rick: PARKER KLIGERMAN IN THE FOURTH SPOT. TRYING TO IT AWAY FROM KVAPIL. KVAPIL IN FIFTH. JOHNNY SAUTER IN SIXTH.>>Michael: BATTLE FOR SEVENTH HERE.>>Phil: OH, CONTACT! >>Michael: JOEY COULTER GETS A LITTLE CONTACT THERE. HERE COMES THE POLE SITTER INTO ACTION. >>Rick: JUSTIN MARKS GETTING BY COULTER AS WELL.>>Michael: HARVICK BACK ON BUSCH.>>Rick: BUSCH AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TRACK AGAIN. ABOUT HALF A GROOVE UP THE RACE TRACK.>>Phil: KEVIN OFF THE CORNER, YOU DON’T THINK HE’S DRIVING HARD?>>Michael: HE’S AFTER THAT THING. YOU CAN SEE HIS HANDS WORKING THAT WHEEL.>>Rick: STAYING ON THE BACK BUMPER OF THE 18. >>Michael: THIS IS WHAT EVERYBODY HAS WANTED TO SEE. WE HAVE IT HERE ON SPEED. A COUPLE GUYS THAT CAN’T GET ALONG, RACING FOR THE LEAD. WOO WEE, THIS IS FUN.>>Rick: AND THE ALTERCATION LAST WEEK. NASCAR SAID WE DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION. WE DON’T WANT TO MAKE THEM MAKE A DECISION AS TO HOW THEY RACE ON THE TRACK.>>Michael: TODD BODINE, RICK.>>Rick: LOOKS LIKE HE’S BLOWN UP. >>ALL CLEAR.>>Phil: MOTOR.>>IT’S A DROPPED CYLINDER. STILL RUNS BUT IT’S A DROPPED CYLINDER.>>Rick: TODD’S STRUGGLES CONTINUE IN 2007.>>COMING OUTSIDE. SMOKIN’ NOW. THEY WANT YOU TO STAY DOWN.>>Phil: ONE TOP TEN FINISH THIS SEASON. >>Rick: NOW CRAFTON IS ABLE TO GET BY THE 13 OF JOHNNY SAUTER. CRAFTON, THE HIGHEST RUNNING TRUCK THAT CAME ON TO PIT ROAD UNDER THIS MOST RECENT CAUTION. HE’S IN THE SIXTH SPOT NOW.>>Phil: HE HAS 27 LAPS MORE FUEL THAN THE TRUCKS IN FRONT OF HIM.>>Rick: SAUTER TRYING TO HOLD ON TO THE SPOT. DILLON IN FRONT OF SAUTER NOW. HE DROPS SAUTER BACK TO THE EIGHTH SPOT NOW. DILLON UP TO SEVENTH. LOFTON IN THE 77 RUNNING 11th. STARR IS 12th. >>Michael: LOFTON IS STRONG TODAY. RAY HAS OUR STORY.>>I WANTED TO UPDATE ON THE FIRST ROUND OF PIT STOPS AT LAP 47. THEY DIDN’T MAKE ANY ADJUSTMENTS ON THAT TOYOTA. BUT AFTER RICKY CARMICHAEL HAD HIS CRASH, THEY PUT RIGHT SIDES ON THE 77. SO A NUMBER OF TRUCKS CAME DOWN PIT ROAD AND ARE ON A DIFFERENT CYCLE THAN KYLE BUSCH AND KEVIN HARVICK, THE GUYS THAT PITTED ONE TIME TODAY. HERMIE?>>RON HORNADAY HAS BEEN UNHAPPY WITH HIS TRUCK SINCE THE START OF THE RACE. IT’S BEEN VERY LOOSE. HE CAN’T TURN IT LIKE HE WANTS TO. WHEN THEY CAME DOWN ON PIT ROAD FOR THIS CAUTION, THEY PUT MORE LOAD ON THE SWAY BAR. THEY ACTUALLY MADE THAT TRUCK THINK IT’S GOT A BIGGER SWAY BAR IN IT THAN IT DOES. MAYBE MICHAEL CAN ADD ON THAT. IT’S SOMETHING YOU CAN DO BUT SOMETHING NOT NORMALLY YOU SO I. THEY’RE TAKING EVERY ACTION THEY CAN. RON HORNADAY’S CREW CHIEF DOING EVERYTHING HE COULD. >>Michael: WHY SAW UNDER THE HOOD OF RICKY CARMICHAEL’S TRUCK, THE SIZE OF THE SWAY BAR IN THAT TRUCK. THE REASON WHY THEY MIGHT CHANGE THE PRELOAD IS BECAUSE THEY DO A LOT OF THE SETUP, A LOT OF HOW THIS TRUCK HANDLES IN THE CORNER IS HINGED ON THE SWAY BAR. THAT’S A REAL SERIOUS TOOL THAT THEY HAVE THAT THEY USE. YOU RARELY SEE THEM GO TO WORK ON IT DURING THE COURSE OF THE RACE. THIS IS THE GUY THAT HAS IT FIGURED OUT. >>Phil: THAT SHOWS YOU HOW DRASTIC STEPS THEY’RE TAKING TO MAKE IT BETTER. HE’S NOT THAT FAR IN FRONT OF THE 18 OF KYLE BUSCH TO GO DOWN A LAP.>>Rick: THAT WOULD BE SURPRISING. HORNADAY TO LOSE A LAP AT DOVER.>>KEEP IN MINUTE YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, THE 3 OF AUSTIN DILLON AND HORNADAY AND HARVICK ALL FOUND THAT THEY HAD BENT LOWER CONTROL ARMS. THAT MEANS THERE’S SO MUCH FORCE ON THE RIGHT FRONT TIRES THAT IT BENT THE PART THAT HOLDS THE SPRING UP. THOSE GUYS WENT BACK TO THE SETUP PLATE AND PUT DIFFERENT A FRAMES ON YESTERDAY. THAT MAY MEAN THEIR ENTIRE PRACTICE FROM YESTERDAY WAS ACTUALLY ALL FOR NOT.>>Rick: KYLE BUSCH HAS A TWO SECOND LEAD OVER KEVIN HARVICK. THOSE TWO COMING IN, THEY LOOKED TO BE EACH OTHER’S NEMESIS. WHO WOULD COME OUT ON TOP. SO FAR IT’S KYLE BUSCH ABLE TO PASS KEVIN HARVICK FOR THE LEAD. NOW HE>>Rick: SPEED’S COVERAGE OF THE CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES ON SPEED IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY –>>Rick: 11 PREVIOUS RACES, 11 DIFFERENT WINNERS. HOW ABOUT SOME OF THE NAMES ON THIS LIST? WHOOPS. TED MUSGRAVE, THAT’S CELEBRATION.>>Michael: 11 DIFFERENT WINNERS. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT? KYLE BUSCH THERE. >>Rick: BACK IN 2005. MARK MARTIN GOING TO VICTORY LANE. AND TEN STARTING IN 2008, IT’S FIRST-TIME WINNERS.>>Phil: THREE YEARS IN A ROW.>>Rick: ARIC ALMIROLA BENEFICIARY OF PROBLEMS FROM KYLE BUSCH A YEAR AGO. SIX TIMES FIRST-TIME WINNERS HAVE GONE TO VICTORY LANE AT MARTINSVILLE AND DOVER AND HOMESTEAD HAVE FIVE FIRST-TIME WINNERS MAKING IT TO VICTORY LANE. >>Phil: AND WE TALKED ABOUT SOME TRUCKS ON THE TRACK RIGHT NOW THAT HAVE 30 LAPS MORE FUEL THAN DOES KYLE BUSCH. YOU CAN SEE RON HORNADAY THERE IN A BATTLE WITH RYAN SEIG. NOW RON HORNADAY IS A LAP DOWN. >>Michael: THEY’RE BATTLING FOR THE LUCKY DOG. THE WAY KYLE BUSCH IS PUTTING THEM AWAY, THEY WON’T BE IN THAT POSITION LONG.>>Rick: AND AS WE COMPLETE LAP 108, THESE GUYS WILL HAVE TO COME TO PIT ROAD IN 20 LAPS. >>Michael: THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE A PLAN FOR PIT ROAD. THAT WILL THROW A WRENCH IN THIS RACE. CAUTION FLIES, CHANGES COMPLEXION OF THIS BABY. >>Phil: THEY CAN DO THE WAVE-AROUND. WE’RE GOING BE FAR ENOUGH THAT THEY CAN MAKE AT THIS TIME REST OF THE WAY. SO THEY CAN STAY OUT FOR THE WAVE-AROUND AND STAY ON THE LEAD LAP AND — >>Rick: COLE WHITT SIDEWAYS THERE.>>Michael: I WISH I WAS HIS SPOTTER. I LIKE HIS AGGRESSION. BUT YOU TALK ABOUT THE CAUTION FLAG FLYING. THE RACE GETTING TURNED UPSIDE-DOWN. IT’S FRIDAY THE 13th, YOU KNOW. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN. THE LAST TIME WE RACED ON FRIDAY THE 13th, YOU KNOW WHO WON?>>Rick: I BELIEVE IT WAS IN PHOENIX. KEVIN HARVICK?>>Michael: KEVIN HARVICK WON. BUT FRIDAY THE 13th IS A CRAZY DAY. WE RACED ON FRIDAY THE 13th FIVE TIMES. IN THOSE RACES, WE HAD TEN DNFs. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN STUFF GOES CRAZY AROUND HERE. >>Rick: WE HAVE SEEN PROBLEMS FOR A FEW DIFFERENT DRIVERS EARLY ON IN THIS RACE.>>Phil: REMEMBER KYLE BUSCH LAST YEAR. HAD A FUEL PICKUP PROBLEM. ARIC ALMIROLA WINDS UP IN VICTORY LANE.>>Rick: KYLE BUSCH CONTINUES TO PUT THEM DOWN. HE’S PUT ALL BY THE 18th PLACE TRUCK A LAP DOWN. CRAZY THINGS HAPPENING. HORNADAY A LAP DOWN.>>Michael: YEAH. HARVICK IN THE BOTTOM THERE.>>Rick: KEVIN IS 6.4 SECONDS BEHIND KYLE BUSCH ON THE RACE TRACK. RUNNING IN THE SECOND SPOT. IT’S AMAZING WHAT KYLE BUSCH CAN DO EVEN TO KEVIN HARVICK ON THIS TRACK. >>Phil: YOU RARELY SEE THE 33 STRUGGLE LIKE IT HAS HERE. THEY HAVE RUN ABOUT 30, 40 LAPS AND THEN HE GETS LAPPED IN THAT AMOUNT OF TIME.>>Michael: YOU WOULD THINK THAT KEVIN HARVICK IS OUT THERE. HE’S A DRIVER. WE SAW HIM TRYING HIS BEST. YOU CAN THINK KEVIN HARVICK, THE OWNER, WHAT IS HE DOING? YOU KNOW YOU PUT THOSE TWO IN EQUAL EQUIPMENT, TRUCKS SET UP THE SAME, THEY’RE GOING TO RUN BUMPER TO BUMPER. KYLE BUSCH HAS DRIVEN AWAY FROM SIX SECONDS. THAT HAS TO MAKE KEVIN HARVICK THE OWNER WONDER WHAT THEY’RE MISSING.>>Phil: THAT’S ONE OF THE REASON HE’S HERE. THEY FEEL LIKE THEY’RE BEHIND WITH THIS EQUIPMENT. ACCORDING TO KEVIN, THIS IS TWO OR THREE WEEKS IN THE MAKING HE DECIDED TO RUN THIS RACE TO SEE WHERE THEY ARE.>>Rick: AND YOU CAN KNOW THAT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS COME MEN BETWEEN THE TEAMS IS THE CREW CHIEF, WREN.>>Michael: THAT’S ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE THORNS UNDER THIS MAN’S SADDLE. HE’S NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT TRANSACTION. AND LOOK AT HIM. HE’S ALL OVER THAT STEERING WHEEL. GOING BACK AND FORWARD. DRIVING THAT BABY.>>Phil: WATCH IT IN TURN NUMBER 1. I THOUGHT I SAW SPARKS FROM BOTTOMING OUT. DIDN’T SEE IT THAT TIME. I’M SURE I SAW IT THE TIME BEFORE. WHEN A TRUCK IS BOTTOMING OUT, YOU DON’T KNOW WHICH DIRECTION IT’S GOING TO GO. >>Rick: LOOKS LIKE IT’S SLAMMING TO THE TRACK.>>Michael: YOU CAN SEE A LOT OF DELTA WHEN HE FLATS, ON THE STRAIGHTAWAY, A BIG CHANGE. SEE IF WE SEE ANYTHING THERE IN SLOW MISSION.>>Phil: LOOK AT HIS HANDS, WORKING THAT STEERING WHEEL. THIS IS THE TRUCK RUNNING SECOND — >>NOW HE’S THIRD.>>Rick: THERE’S GOES COLE WHITT. TAKES THE SPOT AWAY FROM KEVIN HARVICK. >>Michael: LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE IN THE SETUP OF THE 60 AND THE 2. COLE WHITT’S TRUCK DOESN’T DO THAT TRANSITION. SEE HOW LOW HIS TRUCK IS? LOOK AT KEVINS. IT’S COMING UP.>>Phil: WE TYPICALLY SEE THE KHI TRUCKS WITH THE GREAT ATTITUDE. WE NORMALLY SEE THE TRUCK LOOKING LIKE THE 60 TRUCK. >>Michael: YEAH. THE 60 TRUCK LOOKS RIGHT AND THE 2 DOESN’T. >>Rick: LOOK AT THAT ONE. >>Michael: JACKED UP. >>Rick: TWO OR THREE INCHES HIGHER. THIS IS COLE WHITT’S — >>Phil: THERE IT IS BOTTOMING OUT. THAT LOOKS LIKE THE CROSS MEMBER. THEN YOUR SPRINGS AREN’T WORKING ANYMORE. THE THING IS HITTING SOLID ON THE TRACK. THAT’S WHY THAT TRUCK WENT STRAIGHT. >>Michael: YEAH. IT WILL GO STRAIGHT WHEN IT HITS. WHEN YOU HAVE SO MUCH WHEEL, IT WANTS TO BOTTOM OUT. YOU DON’T KNOW WHICH DIRECTION TO TELL YOUR CREW CHIEF. IT’S LIKE IT PUSHES ON ENTRY AND LOOSE OFF. WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?>>Phil: RIGHT NOW THE BEST PLAN IS TO GET THE TRUCK OFF THE TRACK. THAT MIGHT ALLEVIATE A LOT OF PROBLEMS.>>Michael: CHECK THIS OUT. LOOK HOW THE FRONT OF THE TRUCK IS. ON THE GROUND. GO TO HARVICK. HIS TRUCK IS UP A GOOD INCH OR TWO. >>Phil: CRAFT ON THE BEHIND THEM IS LIKE THE 60 WITH A NICE ATTITUDE.>>Michael: VERY UNUSUAL TO SEAT THIS SETUP IN ONE OF THOSE KHI TRUCKS. >>Rick: YOU TALKED ABOUT CHANGES NEED TO BE MADE. THEY’RE ABOUT TO HAPPEN. WE’RE GETTING CLOSE TO GREEN FLAG PIT STOPS NOW. KEVIN HARVICK RUNNING IN THE THIRD SPOT NOW. COLE WHITT HAS CLOSED THE GAP TO FIVE SECONDS. KYLE BUSCH OUT IN FRONT. RAY?>>RICK, WE EXPECT KYLE BUSCH TO COME TO PIT ROAD ON LAP 125. THIS IS WHERE THAT OTHER FUEL STOP MAY REALLY COME IN THAT WE WERE TELLING YOU ABOUT, THE 77 AND THE 88 AND OTHERS CAME TO PIT ROAD. IF WE STAY GREEN HERE, THE 18 HAS TO PUT AND THE 2 CAN’T BE FAR BEHIND HIM. THEY BOTH PITTED AT THE SAME TIME ON LAP 47.>>Phil: AS WELL AS THE SECOND PLACE TRUCK OF COLE WHITT. HE PITTED ON LAP 47. MATT CRAFTON MAY BE IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT. HE’S RUNNING FOURTH. HE’S THE FIRST TRUCK THAT PITTED ON LAP 74.>>Rick: ONE HUGE BENEFIT FOR COLE WHITT, HE HAS THE CUP TEAM THAT PITS FOR THE 83 TEAM PITTING HIS TRUCK TONIGHT. A LITTLE MORE EXPERIENCE FOR GREEN FLAG PIT STOPS. MARK DOWN KYLE BUSCH COMING TO PIT ON LAP 125. NOW LET’S GO TO THE OTHER END AND HERMIE >>COLE WHITT HAS HIS TRUCK ON PIT ROAD. FOUR TIRES. NO ADJUSTMENTS. THE TRUCK IS FREE. THEY THINK ONCE HE GETS BACK IN THE CLEAN AIR, HE WILL RUNDOWN THE 18. A LITTLE SLOW. TRYING TO GET THE TRASH OFF THE GRILL. HE’S DOWN AND AWAY WITH SUNOCO FUEL. RAY?>>KEVIN HARVICK ON IT ROAD. HE GETS A RIGHT FRONT ADJUSTMENT. MAYBE WEDGE. HE’S BEEN TALKING ON THE RADIO ABOUT HOW MUCH THAT SPLITTER HAS BEEN SLAMMING. WATCH, THE 29 IS ON THE INSIDE OF THE 2. THE 2 HAD TO GO FAST TO GET BY HIM. THIS IS RIGHT SIDES HERE. A FOUR-TIRE STOP. FUEL IS GOING IN. HOW ABOUT THE 29, HERMIE?>>THE 29 OF PARKER KLIGERMAN HAS BEEN ON PIT ROAD. THEY MADE A CHASSIS ADJUSTMENT AND WEDGE ADJUSTMENT. WAITED ON THE FUEL. COST TIME ON PIT ROAD, RAY.>>NO ADJUSTMENT FOR AUSTIN DILLON. RIGHT SIDE TIRES ON THAT BASS PRO SHOPS CHEVROLET. HE SAID DON’T TOUCH IT. LEAVE IT HOW IT IS AND GET IT FULL OF FUEL.>>Rick: IN WE STAY GREEN, THESE GUYS CAN MAKE IT. TAKE A LOOK. AUSTIN COMING ON PIT ROAD.>>Phil: WE TALKED ABOUT HOW HARD THIS PIT ROAD IS TO GET ON. HE DID A NICE JOB OF GETTING THAT TRUCK SLOWED IN FRONT OF THE FIRST SPEED LINE. >>Rick: WITH 72 LAPS REMAINING IN THIS RACE, IT’S MATT CRAFTON OUT IN FRONT. MATT WILL HAVE TO STOP ONE MORE TIME, AT LEAST ONE MORE TIME BEFORE THE CHECKERED FLAGS FLY. LET’S GO TO RAY.>>LOOSE OFF IS THE CALL FROM NELSON PIQUET. THEY’RE MAKING RIGHT SIDE AIR PRESSURE AT JUSTMENTS. MAKING SURE THEY GET IT PACKED FULL OF FUEL. SLOW GETTING AROUND TO THE RIGHT REAR. THEY’LL HANG THE TIRES. NELSON PIQUET JONES BACK INTO THE RACE.>>Rick: MATT CRAFTON, JOEY SAUTER, STARR AND LOFTON ARE THE TOP FIVE. STARR HAS SECOND AWAY FROM THE 22 OF JOEY COULTER ON TO PIT ROAD NOW. WE’LL HEAR MORE ABOUT THAT FROM RAY.>>RICK, I HAVE TO TELL YOU, JOEY COULTER IS ONE OF THE ONLY TRUCKS THAT HE SAID IS REALLY TIGHT. THEY’RE TRYING TO FREE HIM UP. WHILE EVERYBODY ELSE IS TRYING TO TIGHTEN UP THEIR TRUCKS. THEY’LL HANG THE TIRES HERE ON THE R.C.R. CHEVROLET. WE LOOK DOWN THE OTHER END OF PIT ROAD. JOHNNY SAUTER GETTING FOUR TIRES ON HIS CARRIER.COM CHEVROLET. SAUTER SAYS IT FEELS LIKE HIS FRONT SPRINGS AREN’T IN THE TRUCK. HE SAYS IT BOUNCES SO HORRIBLY THROUGH THE CENTER OF THE CORNER. HAVING A HARD TIME KEEPING AHOLD OF THE STEERING WHEEL.>>Phil: EIGHT TRUCKS ON THE LEAD LAP. MATT CRAFTON HAS STAYED ON THE TRACK AFTER MAKING THE PIT STOP. ONLY EIGHT TRUCKS RIGHT NOW ON THE LEAD LAP.>>Michael: WHAT CRAFTON HAS TO DEAL WITH, HE’S RUNNING A SECOND SLOWER THAN SOME OF THE GUYS THAT PITTED SO HALF A SECOND ON SOME LAPS MORE. BUT HE’S GOING TO LOSE THAT TIME IF HE STAYS ON THE TRACK. AT SOME POINT HE WILL SAY, ALL RIGHT, I’M GOING TO WAIT FOREVER FOR A CAUTION AND RISK IT OR HE’S GOING TO HAVE TO SHORT PUT IT, GET TIRES AND GAS WHEN HE KNOWS HE CAN MAKE IT TO THE FINISH. THAT’S NOW.>>Rick: JOHNNY SAUTER HAS BEEN TOLD HE’S HAS A PASS-THROUGH PENALTY. HE WAS TOO FAST ENTERING. HE WILL HAVE TO COME TO PIT ROAD. YOU JUST SAW THE BLACK FLAG.>>Phil: WHEN YOU LAP THIS TRACK AT 24 1/2 SECONDS, IT’S GOING TO BE AT LEAST ANOTHER FULL LAP.>>Rick: THE BLACK FLAG BEING SHOWN OF THE 13. HE COMES ON PIT ROAD UNDER GREEN FLAG CONDITIONS. VERY DIFFICULT FOR JOHNNY SAUTER. >>Michael: LOOK HOW SLOW HE HAS TO GET THAT TRUCK FOR PIT ROAD SPEED. THE LAP BEFORE THAT, RUNNING UP TO 170 MILES AN HOUR. HAS TO BRING IT TO ABOUT A HALT.>>Phil: THIS IS EXCRUCIATING FOR JOHNNY SAUTER. KNOWING IT’S A PENALTY. FOR A PIT STOP ITS ONE THING. BUT FOR A PASSING THROUGH PENALTY, IT’S DEMORALIZING.>>Rick: JOHNNY SAUTER MAKES THE SLOW TREK DOWN PIT ROAD. MATT CRAFTON CONTINUES TO SET THE PACE. >>Michael: SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH COLE WHITT. >>>>Rick: HE JUST CAME IN.>>Michael: HE TRIED TO WRECK AGAIN.>>Rick: COLE WHITT WAS RUNNING SECOND — >>I CAN’T GET BEHIND NOBODY.>>Michael: WE VOUCH FOR HIM.>>Rick: HE SAID “I CAN’T GET ALONGSIDE ANYBODY.” REMEMBER, THE 18 OF KYLE BUSCH CAME OUT JUST IN FRONT OF COLE WHITT. THERE’S THE GAP NOW BETWEEN THOSE TWO. YOU SAW COLE WHITT IS BEHIND KYLE BUSCH. IT’S ABOUT HALF A LAUGH NOW. IT WAS 5.5 SECONDS.>>Michael: RICK TALKED ABOUT HOW DIFFICULT IT IS GETTING ON AND OFF PIT ROAD. KYLE BUSCH DID IT IN A HURRY. THE TIME YOU LOSE GETTING TO PIT ROAD AND OFF PIT ROAD, EVIDENTLY COLE HAD MORE TROUBLE THAN KYLE DID. >>Phil: HOW MANY TIMES HAS KYLE BUSCH COME TO THIS TRACK AND PIT ROAD? HERE COMES MATT CRAFTON. WE KNOW WE CAN MAKE IT FROM HERE. >>Rick: DAVID STARR. LET’S GO TO HERMIE. >>DEFINITELY GOING TO GET FOUR TIRES AND FILL IT UP WITH SUNOCO FUEL. MATT HAS HAD A LOOSE RACE CAR. NO CHASSIS ADJUSTMENT. HALF POUND OF AIR IN THE LEFT RIGHT, FUEL AND FOUR TIRES FOR MATT CRAFTON.>>Rick: DAVID STARR TRACK RECORD HOLDER HERE AT THE MONSTER MILE. NEVER BEEN TO VICTORY LANE HERE AT THIS CONCRETE MILE.>>Phil: DID YOU NOTICE THE TRUCK IN FRONT OF THE 81? THAT’S THE 18 OF KYLE BUSCH. WHAT THAT MEANS IS KYLE BUSCH IS ON THE LEAD LAP. HE’S IN FRONT OF THE LEADER. >>Rick: TAIL END OF THE LEAD LAP. JOHNNY SAUTER, HAD TROUBLES. CAME TO PIT ROAD. NO>>Rick: TRAVIS KVAPIL, THINGS ARE HAPPENING AGAIN FOR THAT TEAM. >>Michael: HIS SPLITTER IS BROKEN. WE TALKED ABOUT HIM GETTING ON TRACK, A STRONG TRUCK. HE LOST ALL OF HIS FRONT DOWN FORCE. THE OTHER PROBLEM IS THE LEFT FRONT TIRE. >>Phil: I’M WORRIED ABOUT THAT THING BREAKING OFF AND BLOWING OUT THE LEFT FRONT TIRE. NASCAR OFFICIALS ARE MONITORING THAT CLOSELY. I THINK THAT THING IS GOING TO HAVE TO COME OFF AT SOME POINT AND GET CAUGHT ON THE LEFT FRONT TIRE AND SNATCH IT OFF OF THERE.>>Michael: YOU HAVE TO WONDER IF IT WON’T WEAR THROUGH THE TIRE. SHOULDN’T TAKE LONG. RUNNING ALONG IN THE 20th SPOT IS KVAPIL.>>Rick: JOHNNY SAUTER COME TO PIT ROAD. DAVID STARR IN THE 81. PETERS, LONG, GAUGHAN, SEIG ALL IN THE TOP SIXTH.>>Michael: DON’T YOU LOVE FRIDAY THE 13th?>>Phil: AND THEY HAVE RUN 72 LAPS SINCE THE LAST PIT STOP. I’D THINK THEY CAN RUN ANOTHER 10-12 LAPS.

IT LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING HAPPENED WITH THE FIVE.>>Phil: A TIRE DOWN. >>Michael: THE SPLITTER GOT THE RIGHT FRONT TIRE.>>Phil: VERY FORTUNATE HE DIDN’T GET IN THE WALL. >>Rick: IT WON’T BRING THE CAUTION OUT. GREEN FLAG CONDITIONS WITH 52 LAPS TO GO. DAVID STARR OUT FRONT.>>Phil: GOING TO RUIN TRAVIS KVAPIL’S DAY.>>Michael: YEAH. THEY HAVE TO DO REPAIR WORK THERE. DID IT COME OFF?>>Phil: I THINK IT’S STILL THERE. JUST WORE THROUGH THE LEFT FRONT TIRE.>>Phil: RIGHT UNDERNEATH THE LEFT FRONT TIRE. >>Michael: ALL OF A SUDDEN IT WON’T TURN.>>Rick: UP THE TRACK HE GOES AND THE RACE LEADER GOES BY. TRYING TO GET THE JACK UNDER THE TRUCK TO GET THE LEFT SIDE TIRES OFF. >>Phil: THAT CAME OFF EASY.>>Michael: COULDN’T FALL OFF ON THE TRACK. SOME OF THOSE GUYS WERE LOOKING FOR A CAUTION. HERMIE?>>DAVID STARR IS GOING RIGHT SIDE TIRES ONLY AND ONE CAN OF SUNOCO FUEL TO TRY TO GAIN TRACK POSITION.>>Phil: A GOOD CALL. THE ONE CAN OF FUEL IS ENOUGH TO GET HIM TO THE END. >>Rick: I WAS SAYING ONE CAN OF FUEL MIGHT BE CLOSE. >>Michael: REALLY CLOSE.>>Rick: FUEL CAN IS STILL 11 GALLONS. PROBABLY 12. SO YOU’RE ABLE TO PUT IN MORE THAN HALF A TANK OF FUEL. >>Michael: TROUBLE. POLE SITTER SLOWS. THAT’S OUR LEADER THERE. >>Rick: THAT’S THE 20 OF JOHANNA LONG. >>Michael: SHE’S COMING TO PIT ROAD.>>Phil: THAT’S MATT CRAFTON UNLAPING HIMSELF AS WELL AS THE 22 OF JOEY COULTER.>>Rick: RAY?>>HOW LOOSE DO YOU THINK TIMOTHY PETERS IS? WATCH THE REAR END. THEY GO TO THE TRACK BAR. THREE ROUNDS DOWN. FOUR TIRES ON THE NUMBER 17. THAT’S A BIG ADJUSTMENT. A BIG SWING HERE AT LAP 152. FOUR TIRES FOR PETERS. THEY WEREN’T GOOD IN PRACTICE YESTERDAY AND SO FAR THE TRUCK HAS RESPONDED ABOUT THE WAY THEY EXPECTED.>>Rick: SIX DIFFERENT TRUCKS HAVE LED THE FIELD. ONE OF THOSE BEING JOHANNA LONG. SHE COMES TO PIT ROAD NOW. THOSE ARE THE FIRST LAPS SHE’S EVER LED IN THE CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES. HERMIE?>>SAME STRATEGY AS DAVID STARR. TWO TIRES AND ONE CAN OF FUEL FOR JOHANNA LONG.>>Rick: WITH THESE ROUNDS OF PIT STOPS, BACK IN FRONT IS THE 18 OF KYLE BUSCH. NOW RUNNING SECOND, RON HORNADAY. HE HAD THE ILL HANDLING TRUCK EARLY IN THIS RACE. 7.9 SECONDS BACK. HE LAST PITTED ON LAP 77. SO HE WILL HAVE TO MAKE HIS WAY>>Rick: WELCOME BACK. LUCAS OIL 200 UNDER THE FIFTH CAUTION. THIS TIME FOR DEBRIS. THIS IS THE SPLITTER THAT WE’VE SEEN SO MUCH OF. PIT ROAD IS OPEN. GO TO HERMIE SADLER. >>WHAT A GREAT BREAK FOR RON HORNADAY. THEY WERE WORRIED ABOUT THE FIELD. THEY’RE GOING TO TAKE A RUBBER OUT OF THE RIGHT REAR, FOUR TIRES AND SUNOCO FUEL.>>KYLE BUSCH SAID FOR SURE WE’RE GOING WITH TIRES. FOUR TIRES AND FUEL. THE 22 WHIZES BY HIM. WE SEE THE 3 OF AUSTIN DILLON. ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN, KEVIN HARVICK. THEY SAID JUST ENOUGH FUEL TO MAKE SURE WE GO THE DIFFERENCE. THERE’S PROBABLY CONTACT. KYLE BUSCH GOT JAMMED TO TRY TO GET AROUND THE 22. HE WILL NOT BE THE FIRST TRUCK AUTOMATIC OF PIT ROAD.>>AND WHAT ABOUT JAY WHITE AND THE GUN BROKER TRUCK? GOT TO BE TWO TIRES. COLE WHITT CAME OFF SECOND. >>Rick: IN FRONT OF KYLE BUSCH.>>Michael: AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME. KYLE BUSCH GOES TO PULL OUT. WASN’T MUCH ROOM THERE. >>Phil: AND A HEADS-UP CALL BY PHILIPS.

IT’S A FIGHT TO THE FINISH.>>Michael: CAN YOU IMAGINE, 100 LAPS. WE’RE GOING TO PAY YOU A MILLION DOLLARS. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP YOUR GLOVES ON IF THAT’S THE SCENARIO?>>Phil: YOU MIGHT START WITHOUT YOUR GLOVES. >>THESE GUYS ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HAVING A LOT OF ISSUES WITH THIS TRUCK. HE’S BEEN SO LOOSE SINCE THIS RACE STARTED. THEY HAVE COME DOWN PIT ROAD EVERY POSSIBLE CHANCE TO TRY TO TIGHTEN IT UP. THEY CAME BACK IN, THEY WERE THREE LAPS FROM HAVING TO COME IN UNDER GREEN TO GET MORE FUEL. SO THEY GOT A BREAK THERE, CAME IN. TWO TIRES, A TRACK BAR ADJUSTMENT FOR JASON WHITE TO GET HIM UP FRONT. RAY?>>WHEN WE LOOK BACK AT KYLE BUSCH’S RECORD HERE AT DOVER, THEY HAD A WATER PUMP PROBLEM, TRANSMISSION WENT BACK. AND KYLE BUSCH SAID I SURE HOME WE DON’T FIND ANOTHER WAY TO LOSE A RACE HERE AT DOVER.>>Phil: KEVIN HARVICK WAS BUSTED FOR SPEEDING. HE WILL HAVE TO RESTART FROM THE TAIL. AS WELL AS THE 5 OF TRAVIS KVAPIL. KEVIN HARVICK IS A CONTENDER AND NOW GOING TO LOSE TRACK POSITION.>>Rick: GREEN FLAG IN THE AIR.

THEY’RE TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE FOURTH AND FIFTH POSITION. >>Michael: THIS IS ONE OF THOSE DAYS WHEN RON HORNADAY WOULD JUST BE HAPPY IF THE RACE ENDED RIGHT NOW. EVERY LAP THAT GOES BY, TRUCKS ARE PASSING HIM. IT’S FRUSTRATING FOR A CHAMPION LIKE RON HORNADAY.>>Rick: JOEY COULTER ON THE INSIDE OF MATT CRAFTON.>>Phil: HE’S HANGING TOUGH WITH HIS QUASI TEAMMATE. THE TRUCKS COME OUT OF RCR AND EARNHARDT ENGINES.>>Rick: LOOK AT HORNADAY. CONTINUING TO CHASE THAT TRUCK UP THE RACE TRACK.>>Phil: LOSES TWO MORE POSITION. NOW HE HAS JOHNNY SAUTER IN HIS SIGHTS. JOHNNY THE FIRST TRUCK ONE LAP DOWN. HE’S NEEDS A CAUTION TO GET BACK IN CONTENTION. YOU REMEMBER THE PENALTY HE HAD FOR SPEEDING ON PIT ROAD. >>Rick: HE’S ONE LAP DOWN, RUNNING IN THE 18th SPOT. JUST IN FRONT OF HIM, TIMOTHY PETERS RUNNING 17th. IT’S COLE WHITT HOLDING OFF THE 18 OF KYLE BUSCH. ALMOST A ONE SECOND LEAD FOR COLE WHITT. KYLE BUSCH IS SECOND. KLIGERMAN IS THIRD.

HE FELT LIKE THE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN HE AND HIS TEAM IMPROVED 100%. >>Phil: A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR SURE. >>Michael: HE’S GOT HIS HANDS FULL. LOOK AT THAT BATTLE.>>Phil: TWO REALLY GOOD TRUCKS BEHIND HIM. NELSON PIQUET JR. IS GOING TO TRY TO GET BY. THEY MAKE IT THREE WIDE.>>Rick: PIQUET JR. IN THE MIDDLE. THREE WEEKS. PIQUET JR. WITH ANOTHER GOOD RUN. BACK-TO-BACK RUNS FOR THAT 8.>>Michael: THAT AGGRESSIVE. >>Phil: HE DROVE IT IN THAT CORNER. >>Michael: IT’S TIME TO GO. 24 TO GO. HE WANTS PART OF THE TOP TEN. >>Rick: THE GAP CONTINUES TO CLOSE WITH COLE WHITT AND KYLE BUSCH. FOUR SECONDS SEPARATING THE TOP TWO.>>Phil: THAT’S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. LAST TIME BY, KYLE BUSCH A COUPLE HUNDREDS FASTER THAN COLE. THIS TIME, COLE FASTER AGAIN. THEY FLIP-FLOP BACK AND FORTH, WHICH GUY CAN RUN A FASTER LAP. WHAT A GREAT BATTLE HERE. >>Phil: AND PARKER KLIGERMAN, A NINE PLACE AT TEXAS. HIS CAREER BEST.

GOT THREE WIDE AT ONE POINT. OBVIOUSLY HE FELT LIKE SOMEBODY WASN’T PLAYING RIGHT. >>Phil: WHEN THE INCIDENT HAPPENED, HE WAS BY HIMSELF. THERE WAS NO CONTACT BY ANY OTHER TRUCK. HE HAD DROPPED BACK THREE OR FOUR TRUCK LENGTHS FROM THE 66 OF JUSTIN MARKS. THERE HE IS RIGHT THERE. >>Michael: A GOOD SHOT AT IT. WHO WAS HE MAD AT?>>Rick: BRENDAN GAUGHAN WAS A COUPLE TRUCKS BEHIND HIM. >>Phil: A LOT OF TIMES YOU’RE MAD, MAD AT YOURSELF AND EASIER TO TAKE IT OUT ON SOMEBODY ELSE. FRUSTRATION FOR JUSTIN MARKS.>>Rick: SIX TIMES THIS RACE HAS BEEN SLOWED. THIS TIME IT IS THE 77 OF JUSTIN MARKS WHO>>Rick: UNDER 20 LAPS REMAINING. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE RAM GUTS AND GLORY HERE AT THE MONSTER MILE. HAD TO QUOTE RICKY CARMICHAEL.>>Phil: HARD CONTACT ON THE OUTSIDE WALL. WHEN I SEE SOMETHING LIKE THAT, MAKES ME WANT TO HUG THE FOLKS FROM NASCAR, THE FOLKS THAT DEVELOP THE SAFER BARRIER. JUST KNOWING THE RESULT WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH DIFFERENT HAD WE NOT MADE ALL THE ADVANCEMENTS IN SAFETY. RICKY WOULD NOT HAVE WALKED AWAY AT THAT ANGLE TEN YEARS AGO. NO WAY.>>Rick: RICKY WAS RAM TOUGH. HE HAS A DESTROYED TRUCK. NOT THE FINISH HE WANTED FROM THIS RACE. COULD WE HAVE OUR FOURTH IN A ROW FIRST-TIME WINNER WITH COLE WHITT?>>Phil: THE TRUCKS ARE EQUAL, THE 60 TRUCK OF COLE WHITT AND THE 18 OF KEVIN HARVICK. HERMIE?>>ON COLE WHITT, OBVIOUSLY STAYED ON THE TRACK. ALL THE TALK FROM HE AND HIS CREW CHIEF HAS BEEN ABOUT THIS RESTART. HE WANTS THE OUTSIDE. HE SAID MAKE SURE TO PIN HIM DOWN OFF OF TURN TWO.>>Rick: GOOD STRATEGY. WE’LL SEE IF IT CAN MAKE IT WORKS. >>Michael: KYLE BUSCH HAS THE BEST RESTART.>>Rick: GREEN FLAG IN THE AIR. JASON WHITE SLOW ON THE RESTART. KYLE BUSCH GREAT RESTART. HE BATTLES FOR THE LEAD OUT OF TURN TWO.>>Phil: I THOUGHT THAT WAS POSSIBLY BE COLE WHITT’S DOWN FALL. NOT THAT HE DID ANYTHING WRONG. BUT THERE’S NOBODY THAT CAN RUN THAT FIRST LAP I DON’T THINK IN RACING TODAY LIKE KYLE BUSCH.>>Michael: HE’S LIKE RON HORNADAY. WE ALWAYS GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR SHIFTING GEARS SO WELL. HE RUNS WIDE OPEN AFTER A RESTART NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE AT. KYLE BUSCH TOOK THAT FIRST TURN WIDE OPEN. HE LEFT THE GAS PEDAL ON THE FLOOR.>>Rick: COULTER TAKES FIFTH BACK AWAY FROM MATT CRAFTON.

TRUCKS CRASHING. >>Rick: LUCKY NUMBER 7 AS FAR AS CAUTIONS COME OUT. SO OUR 7th CAUTION UNDER 15 LAPS OF RACING REMAIN. KYLE BUSCH OUT FRONT. COLE WHITT RUNNING SECOND. KYLE BUSCH WITH A GREAT RESTART WAS ABLE TO TAKE THE LEAD AWAY FROM COLE WHITT WHILE COLE WHITT WAS RUNNING UP FRONT, KYLE BUSCH WASN’T ABLE TO CLOSE THE GAP ON HIM. ON THAT RESTART, HE TOOK THE LEAD AWAY. >>Phil: IT’S THE CLEAN AIR. THE 60 OF COLE WHITT HAD THE CLEAN AIR PRIOR TO THE CAUTION COMING OUT.>>Rick: 17 TRUCKS ON THE LEAD LAP. JASON WHITE RUNNING 17th.

WELCOME BACK. LUCAS OIL 200. WE WIND DOWN. IT WILL BE NINE LAPS OF RACING TO GO WHEN THEY GET BACK TO THE STRIPE. KYLE BUSCH — >>Phil: WHAT’S HE DOING ON THE INSIDE?>>Michael: HE GOT THE LEAD WITH THE INSIDE. MAKE HE LIKES IT. EXPERIENCE BEHIND THE WHEEL IS WAY IN KYLE BUSCH’S FAVOR.

PARKER KLIGERMAN, IN FRONT OF THE FIELD. KLIGERMAN GOES AROUND, INTO THE OUTSIDE WALL. THEY STAY GREEN. NOW THE CAUTION FLAG COMES OUT NOW.>>Phil: PARKER TRYING SO HARD. RICK WREN ALMOST A SMILE ON HIS FACE.>>Michael: HE’S THINKING, IS IT ALMOST OVER?>>Phil: WE GOT ANOTHER SHOT AT HIM.>>Michael: THIS IS VALUABLE EXPERIENCE FOR COLE WHITT. NOW HE HAS TWO RESTARTS UNDER HIS BELT THAT WEREN’T SUCCESSFUL. HE WASN’T ABLE TO MAINTAIN THE LEAD. >>Phil: MICHAEL, YOU SAID HE HAS ANOTHER SHOT. THEY MAY HAVE MADE SLIGHT CONTACT.>>Michael: HE DROVE IT IN THERE WAY TOO HARD. YOU CAN TELL IN TURN ONE AND TWO, HE WAS DETERMINED TO TAKE THE SPOT AWAY. IT’S SO DIFFICULT. THESE YOUNG CATS DON’T KNOW THAT YET. >>Phil: IT’S VERY DIFFICULT TO KNOW. THERE’S A LITTLE CONTACT WITH THE THREE OF AUSTIN DILLON. YOU CAN SEE THE DAMAGE TO THE RIGHT FRONT CORNER OF DILLON’S TRUCK. DON’T KNOW IF HE WILL COME DOWN PIT ROAD. HERE’S KEVIN HARVICK’S ON BOARD CAMERA. YOU CAN SEE PARKER DOWNING SIDEWAYS.>>STAY LOW, STAY LOW. COME ON. STILL GREEN.

THERE’S THE DAMAGE TO DILLON’S TRUCK. SPOTTERS SAYING WE THINK IT’S OKAY. I’D HAVE TO PIT THERE, PHIL. THE WHOLE RIGHT FRONT IS BROKEN LOSE. WHEN YOU PUT THE AIR TO THAT THING, IT WILL CAVE IN ON THAT TIRE. >>Phil: DILLON IN THE THIRD SPOT. 16 TRUCKS ON THE LEAD LAP. HE DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE UP POSITION. THAT’S ANDY HOUSTON THE SPOTTER. I THINK HE’S GOING TO STAY OUT AND ROLL THE DICE.>>Rick: SAW A GLIMPSE OF RICHARD CHILDRESS. GRANDFATHER TO AUSTIN DILLON. THERE’S JOANNA LONG BEING PUSHED INTO THE GARAGE. THE AARON’S LUCKY DOG GOES TO THE 39. SO RYAN SEIG WILL GET A LAP BACK. 18 WILL BE — 17 WILL BE ON THE LEAD LAP WHEN WE GET READY TO RESTART. THEY’LL BE SIDE BY SIDE ONCE AGAIN. KYLE BUSCH AND COLE >>Michael: IT’S ALL COME TO THIS. ABOUT A THREE-LAP DASH FOR IT.>>Rick: THREE LAP ALSO REMAIN WHEN THEY GET TO THE STRIPE. >>Michael: NOT A GREEN/WHITE CHECKER.>>Rick: THIS IS FOR THE ADVERTISED DISTANCE OF 200 LAPS.>>Michael: I’M NOT SURE THERE WOULDN’T BE ONE. >>Phil: CAN COLE WHITT ANTICIPATE THAT JUMP THAT KYLE BUSCH HAD LAST TIME AND GO EARLIER?>>Michael: HE’S HAD TWO TRIES AT IT. HE’S LEARNED EACH TIME.>>Rick: KYLE BUSCH, COLE WHITT. HOW ABOUT HARVICK? HE’S MADE HIS WAY BACK TO TOP SIX. GREEN FLAG BACK IN THE AIR. A GREAT RESTART FOR BOTH TRUCKS. THE 18 AND THE 60, SIDE BY SIDE AT THE STRIPE.>>Phil: DEAD EVEN AT THE STRIPE.

ONE MORE MILE AT DOVER. LOOKING FOR THE WEEKEND SWEEP AS WELL. HE HAS TO START IT OFF RIGHT IN THE TRUCK SERIES. BIG CRASH. NELSON PIQUET JR. AND TIMOTHY PETERS. THAT WILL BRING OUT — RIGHT NOW WE HAVEN’T SEEN THE CAUTION. BUT IT IS OUT. THAT MAKES IT OFFICIAL. KYLE BUSCH WILL WIN AT DOVER.

ENDS UP WITH HIS CAREER BEST FINISH OF SECOND.>>Rick: MATT CRAFTON THIRD, DILLON.

FOR ABOUT 24 LAPS, KYLE, I SAW THAT 60 OUT FRONT. I’M WONDERING TO MYSELF, IS KYLE BUSCH JUST LAYING BACK THERE FOR HIM OR WAS IT THE RESTART THAT MADE THE BIG DIFFERENCE?>>WELL, I WAS WAITING FOR HIM A LITTLE BIT. SEEING HOW THE LONG RUN WOULD PLAY OUT. MAKING SURE THAT I WOULD SAVE A LITTLE SOMETHING SO I COULD RUN HIM DOWN AND TRY TO PASS HIM. HE WAS FAST OUT THERE. I TELL YOU WHAT, I WAS WORKING FOR IT. WAS REELING HIM IN A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME. I WAS COMING THERE AT THE END OF IT. THAT FOUR FOR FOUR FOR TRAXXAS. CAN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THESE GUY AT KYLE BUSCH MOTORSPORTS.

WHY HAD A SHOT AND THEN I GOT THE PIT ROAD SPEEDING PUSHING IT TOO HARD. >>THAT’S KEVIN HARVICK WHO CAME BACK AFTER A PENALTY. >>Michael: WHAT A GREAT JOB BY COLE WHITT. COLE LEFT WITH KYLE AND WENT INTO TURN ONE SIDE BY SIDE. >>Phil: KYLE SAID HE HAD ME. BUT HE WAS ABLE TO HOLD IT DOWN. WE KNOW KYLE BUSCH MORE THAN LIKELY RAN THAT CORNER WIDE OPEN.

WE HAD TO TAKE THE OUTSIDE. I THOUGHT IT LOST IT THERE A COUPLE TIMES. OUR TRUCK WAS LOOSE ON THE BOTTOM. IT WAS — WORKED OUT GOOD. HE TOOK THE BOTTOM. I GOT BETTER AND BETTER PICKING UP WHAT HE WAS DOING. HE COULD GET THROUGH FIRST GEAR SO MUCH BETTER. OUR SECOND GEAR, HE COULD GET THROUGH THERE GOOD. OUR THREE TO FOUR WAS FINE. HE COULD GET UP TO SPEED QUICKER FROM THE INITIAL. THAT WAS THE HARDEST PART TO KEEP UP WITH HIM. WE’RE LEARNING. >>WHAT A GREAT DAY FOR COLE WHITT.

WE MADE A LITTLE OVERADJUSTMENT AND GOT IT TOO TIGHT AT THE END. THAT WAS MY FAULT. I WAS SCREAMING LOOSE. IT HAS TO BE LOOSE TO BE FAST. I CAN’T THANK THESE GUYS ENOUGH. WE CHANGED MORE STUFF IN THAT 2 1/2 HOURS OF PRACTICE. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE. THIS MENARD’S CHEVY WAS GOOD ON THE LONG RUN. WISH WE COULD HAVE HAD SOME LONG RUNS AT THE END. I THINK WE MIGHT HAVE HAD SOMETHING FOR THEM.>>THESE ARE THE KIND OF RUNS THAT CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE MADE OF. MATT CRAFTON COMES HOME THIRD. >>Rick: WE KNEW WE WOULD SEE HISTORY MADE. IT WAS EITHER KYLE BUSCH GOING FOR THE FIRST-TIME REPEAT WINNER HERE OR SEEING OUR YOUNGEST WINNER EVER IN THE CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES WITH COLE WHITT ON THE FINAL RESTART.>>Michael: 11 STRAIGHT RACES HERE, NOBODY WON MORE THAN ONE OF THEM. WHO WOULD YOU PUT YOUR MONEY ON? THAT GUY THERE IN VICTORY LANE.>>Phil: AND KYLE STARTS LAST AND WINS THE RACE.>>Rick: COLE WHITT ANOTHER IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE. THIS TIME HE GETS THE CAREER BEST FINISH OF SECOND. MATT CRAFTON WITH HIS THIRD PLACE FINISH IS ABLE TO MOVE UP INTO THE TOP SPOT IN THE POINTS STANDINGS HERE IN THE CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES. >>Michael: WHAT A BATTLE WE HAVE FOR THIS CHAMPIONSHIP. EIGHT POINTS SEPARATE THE FIRST FOUR DRIVERS.>>Phil: AND A LONG WAY TO GO IN THIS SEASON, TOO.>>Rick: LUCKILY, OUR NEXT STOP, CHARLOTTE. I TELL YOU WHAT, A LOT OF PEOPLE LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT 1 1/2 MILES.>>Phil: SO MUCH HYPE, SO MUCH INTEREST IN RACING NEXT WEEKEND.>>Michael: AS A RACE CAR DRIVER, YOU LOVE GOING HOME. THAT’S WHERE EVERYBODY LIVES. ALL YOUR CREW GETS TO COME. THE FAMILY GETS TO COME. A SPECIAL FEELING TO RACE AT CHARLOTTE. >>Rick: FRIDAY THE 13th AT DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY. SOME CRAZY THINGS THAT HAPPENED ON THE TRACK. BUT ONE CONSISTENT, THAT 18 IS ALWAYS GOOD. BACK TO VICTORY LANE HE WENT.>>NEXT WEEK, THE CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES WILL BE IN THE HEART OF NASCAR. THEY VISIT CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY. EVERYBODY WILL BE LOOKING TO LEAF A LASTING IMPRESSION ON THEIR HOMETOWN. LAST YEAR IT WAS KYLE BUSCH THAT LEFT A LASTING IMPRESSION ON CHARLOTTE.
