    Last Race: Wes Slates was able to hold off a late charge from Anthony Curtain to score his sixth career Cup victory at Watkins Glen. The win assured a 3rd winless driver will qualify for the Chase based off driver's points after Race 14 in Richmond.
    This Race: With the Road Course stretch over, we begin the first of two weekends in Indianapolis - week 1 at the short track ORP, the 2nd at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Previous winners Keith Batson and Jacob Craigo come in as the early favorites, with Matt O'Reilly hoping to relive the dominant race he ran here in 2013. A lead-lap finish would feel like a win for Noah Joyce, as mechanical gremlins have plagued the 46 team in recent weeks. To that end, teams will be applying their new upgrades this week, with most teams opting for engine upgrades. Time will tell how these pan out for them.

    Race Length: 250 laps/171 miles
    Midway Caution: Lap 125

    "It would be nice if I or Webster we're able to pull off an upset here I'm just going to do what I can to keep my nose clean and to keep out of trouble period however given the record this season I don't think that's going to be possible."

    We were a bit snug in qualifying trim. I think we have a good car for this weekend.

    Pressure's off now. I know I'm changing teams now, and the only shot we have at making the playoffs is getting a win. We may be 40th in points, but we're not far from 30th.

    We're just out here to win. Until we do, we're way out of the picture. So let's just go balls to the wall and win a damn race.

    Pace car is in. Jacob Craigo kicks tonight off from the catbird's seat - can he stay there for the checkers?

    Green flag!

    Lap 1

    Craigo pretty handily clears Harris coming through turn 2, and takes whatever lane he wants into 3

    Lap 7

    Most of the field has gone single file, with the lone top-10 battle being between Slates and DeCosta for 5th. Slates prevails

    Lap 16

    Craigo's lap times are a good tenth and a half better than his closest competition, and he's now opened up a three second lead on Harris

    Lap 20

    Caudill and Johnston tussle for 17th, but outside of that battle everyone else appears to be simply logging laps
