    Lap 34: Caudill found 2 tenths that lap to close the lead to 0.9 seconds. Caudill winning would throw a major wrench in this Playoff battle. If Caudill gets by Franklin for the lead, I think Rodriguez and Foster would both get in on points. Franklin needs to win the race or hope Foster continues to slide back through the field if he wants to make the Playoffs. So far Foster has picked up 2 spots since the restart.

    Lap 35: 10 to go: Rodriguez finally gets back around Noah Joyce for 4th. Back up at the front, Caudill takes another two tenths out of Franklin's lead.

    Franklin is fighting for his Playoff hopes in the closing laps here at Lime Rock Park.

    Lap 36: Foster picked up another spot a couple of laps ago as he got around Kyle Missimer for 7th. Even more pressure on Franklin to hold off Caudill for the win.

    So far Franklin isn't doing the best job at that. Caudill has cut the lead now to half a second.

    Lap 37: Caudill has the better car, and he is there! Right on the bumper of Franklin as they head through the bus stop! Franklin has a better exit and is able to pull away some, but the lead is down to just three tenths of a second as they come back across the line.

    Joey Foster is the biggest Dakota Caudill fan in the track right now. A win from Caudill should get him in on points, while a win from Franklin could eliminate him.

    Lap 38: Caudill had a shot at Franklin entering the esses, but he chooses to follow the #95 for now. He's got plenty of time to still get the lead.

    Lap 39: LEAD CHANGE: Caudill to the right side of Franklin this time up through the esses, and he's there! Franklin runs the entrance of the bus stop wide, and he has to give the spot to Caudill! Caudill to the lead, and now Franklin has to get it back!

    Joey Foster may have just secured his Playoff spot for now with that lead change.

    Lap 40: 5 to go: Franklin followed Caudill through the esses, and that was probably a mistake. Caudill drives away in the back half of the course, and his lead is already up to half a second.

    Behind them, John Rodriguez gets back around teammate Johnny Gloria for 3rd.

    As they run now, I think it would be Foster and Rodriguez in the Playoffs on points. Sean English has worked his way up to 20th. He might also still have a shot at getting in.

    Lap 41: Franklin had a better lap that time. He gains half a tenth on Caudill that lap. He's gonna need more than that if he wants to get the lead back.

    Lap 42: Looks like Caudill's car has tightened up since he took over the lead. Franklin finds another half a tenth that lap. Caudill ran the entrance of the esses wide, then ran the final corner wide for the second lap in a row.

    Lap 43: Caudill had a much better run through the esses that time around. He puts almost three tenths back on Franklin at the line.

    Lap 44: WHITE FLAG: Franklin must have given it all he's got. Caudill again with a better lap extends his lead to 8 tenths of a second. It's going to take Caudill having a problem for Franklin to get back by for the win.

    Sean English has methodically worked his way up to 19th. We'll have to see if that will be enough to get English in on points.

    Lap 45: CHECKERED FLAG: Dakota Caudill comes off of the final corner, and after getting around J.R. Franklin with 6 laps to go, he'll play spoiler in the Playoff battle! Dakota Caudill wins at Lime Rock Park!

    J.R. Franklin will have to settle for 2nd, and he'll have to hope that will be enough to get him in the Playoffs on points.

    John Rodriguez comes across the line in 3rd. I think he should be safe to make it in on points.

    Sean English mounted quite the charge in the closing laps. He'll finish 19th. We'll have to see if he still gets in on points.

    I think Rodriguez is in regardless. The battle will be between Franklin, English, and Foster for that 12th and final spot. I don't think 22nd for Matt Wichelman will get him in.

    Results. I'll do a quick estimate on the Playoff bubble, but I won't be able to make anything official until probably tomorrow.

    11. 32 John Rodriguez +12
    12. 67 Joey Foster +8

    13. 6 Sean English -8
    14. 95 J.R. Franklin-11
    15. 11 Matt Wichelman -22
    16. 55 Ben Althen -40

    Unofficially, both John Rodriguez and Joey Foster would bump Sean English and Matt Wichelman out of the Playoffs. Won't be official until tomorrow.

    @BrendonH12: "Alright, so after we escaped 'Cole's Demolition Derby,' we got caught up in another accident and flattened my buddy's rear end - sorry, DJ. I don't know... We were just terrible here all weekend and I'm getting ready to see this season come to a close. I wanna thank Jason for giving me the opportunity to drive this #17 Camaro, and gotta thank SBN and Pacific Life for staying faithful throughout this tough season. We've still got a few races left - who knows? Maybe we can pick up a win before it's all said and done. On to the next one..."
