    Lap 1: One car didn't make it to the green, Bob Laryson started smoking under the pace laps and he brings it in before the green waves. The 54 team reporting a header issue and they will not make it to the green flag. Back to the action Gegner with a good jump leads into turn 1 and will lead the field up through the esses, Grube will take 2nd, Batson 3rd and Ahlbrand drops to 4th after being on the outside into turn 1. Further back Wesley Slates goes up in smoke right were drivers are changing up to 3rd. He pulls off track and will finish 37th.

    Lap 2: Gegner leads lap 1 as the top 10 or so are single file after 1 lap. Dakota Caudill pulls out of line into turn 1 and will out brake Everett and take over 14th. Gegner holding his lead over Gurbe, Batson, Ahlbrand, and Jordan as they approach the bus stop. Everyone up front gets through clean but a few cars go off track but we stay clean and green. Gegner leads lap 2.

    Lap 3: Starting to see cars spacing out but things are still tight up front. Batson with a good run through turn 5 and down the straight to 6 will bomb it inside for 2nd. Grube uses the extra pavement on the exit and they race side by side to the final turn, turn 7. Grube on the inside has the advantage but wait, he comes to pit road! Batson to 2nd as Grube slowly heads to his stall. Looks like a quick stop and go for the 85 team, possible strategy call?

    Lap 5: Gegner still out front now ahead of Batson, Ahlbrand, Jordan, and Harris. Way in the back last week's winner Trey Coleman comes to pit road. He is reporting some kind of problem and they take the 12 behind the wall so it won't be back to back weeks for the 12 team.

    Lap 6: Top 10 as we hit lap 6: Gegner, Batson, Ahlbrand, Jordan, Harris, English, Nixon, Missimer, Towianski, and Cole. Gegner up to a 6 tenth lead as Batson now starting to feel some pressure from the 66. Behind them though we have a car in the tire barrier in the bus stop. Anthony Curtain has gone off track and demolished the tire wall. Heavy damage to the 97, he will not be able to finish the race. Replay shows the 23 braking too late into the bus stop and turning the 97. Bad break for Curtain early as he will now be forced to watch from the garage. No caution as Gegner holds his advantage at 6 tenths.

    Lap 7: A crazy start to this race and that has allowed a 3 car breakaway at the front. JJ Jordan riding 4th under fire from the 42 of Harris into the bus stop. Harris waaayyy late on the brakes door checks the 28 and slides off track. Jordan holds on with minimal damage and the 42 rejoins the track right in front of English. 5th through 10th had to check up for that ordeal and lost a bunch of time.

    Lap 8: Gegner still holding that 6 tenth lead over Batson but Ahlbrand in 3rd is faster than both of them and he closes on the rear of the 39. Behind them Nixon will dive inside of English into turn 1 and take 6th. Towianski tries a similar move on Missimer but the Mizz an expert on road courses holds him off.

    Lap 9: Gegner a bad lap and now Batson all over his rear bumper. The top 3 separated by just 7 tenths into turn 1. Jordan back in 4th is 3 seconds behind that battle and puling away from 5th place Harris. English retakes 6th from Nixon in turn 1 doing exactly the same thing that Nixon did the previous lap.

    Lap 10: Ryan DeCosta on the move into turn 1. He out brakes the 92 of Flaitz to take 11th and Everett will follow the 17 to take 12th. Top 3 continue to stretch out their advantage over the rest of the field but they also continue to match times with each other. Batson still right on the rear of the 29 but does not make a move as they head into turn 6. Off turn 7 and now Batson hits pit road. Down to 40mph and he pulls into his stall, just left side tires and they let him go. This moves Ahlbrand up to 2nd now with Jordan 3rd, Harris 4th, and English to 5th.

    Lap 14: The action has cooled down on track. Times are down almost a full second now as we get more laps on the tires. A few drivers are charging to the front early on. Lounsberry from 20th to 13th, Joyce from 22nd to 14th, Busch from 24th to 16th, and Webster from 30th to 17th. They are however over 10 seconds behind the top 2. Ahlbrand has slowed his pace and Gegner has a 1.2 second lead now as we hit lap 15.

    Lap 15: Battle for 4th, English goes side by side with Harris up the hill through the esses and towards the bus stop. Contact! English way off course and he hits the tire wall! Look out! English spins back on track and now a big hit! English has left the park! Caution is out. Gegner the leader.

    Replay shows a hard battle for 4th going wrong. Harris didn't give English much room and they made contact on the entry to the bus stop. Harris has been all over the place in the bus stop since he hit the side of Jordan earlier in the race. English gets the worse end of the deal and just nicks the tire wall. The impact sends the 31 back on track right in front of Cole and DeCosta. The impact send Engilsh airborne and over the guardrail. Cole and English both out of their cars and will DNF. DeCosta continues on with heavy front end damage.

    Pit road opens and everyone will come in for 4 tires and fuel. Gegner wins the race off pit road over Jordan and Ahlbrand.

    Lap 18: Green flag waves and we are back racing! A bit of a stack up on the restart and the top 4 breakaway. The top 15 or so all stay single file down into turn 1. The front runners taking it easy on the first lap, feeling their cars out after adjustments. Gegner holds the lead as they race back to the line.

    Lap 20: Again we see the top 3 pulling away from 4th. Harris struggling has Nixon all over him into the bus stop. Harris again messes up and forces Nixon wide and off track. Missimer takes advantage and will go by Nixon to take 5th.

    Lap 22: 1 lap away from half way and Gegner has been out front the whole way. He has Jordan and Ahlbrand all over though trying to change that. 6 tenths separate the top 3. Harris in 4th holding up the guys behind as they are 2 seconds behind the top 3 already. Ahlbrand all over Jordan into turn 6, now to 7 and he dives low on the 28. Drag race down the front and Ahlbrand will take 2nd as they brake for turn 1.

    Lap 23: Ahlbrand to 2nd has some work to do now as that battle let Gegner open up a 1 second lead. The 66 car looks great on the 2nd half of the track but we'll see if he can do anything with 29 as we cross the halfway point of the race.

    Lap 24: Ahlbrand 2 tenths better that lap and is reeling in the 29. Jordan is fading back into the clutches of the 42 and 68. Looks like this might turn into a 2 horse race unless someone else can start making some moves. That might be Missimer in the 68 if he can get around Harris. He has been all over the rear bumper of the 42 the last several laps but hasn't made a move yet.

    Lap 25: Ahlbrand is hauling right now as he was 4 tenths faster and is right on the rear spoiler of the 29 as they head into turn 1. The 66 is there as they race uphill towards the bus stop. Ahlbrand doesn't pull out of line and stays tucked up right behind Gegner. Around turn 5 and Ahlbrand runs wide. Looks like he lost air the nose being so close to the 29 and he drops back about 4 car lengths. Gegner safe for now but Ahlbrand definitely has the quicker car.

    Lap 28: Batson to pit road again. He hasn't been able to make any progress after pitting earlier in the race. Just right sides this time for the 39 team. Up front Ahlbrand hasn't been able to put much pressure on the 29 but he is in striking distance just 1 car length back. Jordan still holds 3rd, Harris 4th, and Missimer 5th.

    Lap 29: The Joyce Racing cars have been solid so far and all 3 of them go around Towianski which puts the 7th, 8th, and 9th. Flaitz, Lounsberry, and Joyce is how they run but they are well back of the top 6. Up front we have a battle for the lead! Ahlbrand side by side with Gegner into turn 6! Drag race around turn 7 and down the front, Ahlbrand leads lap 29!

    Action1.png

    Lap 30: Gegner just keeps his nose alongside the 66 into turn 1 and now pulls even as they race up the hill to the bus stop. Ahlbrand clears and now Gegner has a car in front of him for the first time today as we have just 15 to go.
