    Lap 48: Green flag back out at Armory Digital. Wichelman brings the field back up to speed. Anthony Curtain wasting no time making a move for the lead on the restart and he will take it. Gegner also making moves drafts up to 4th and closing quickly on the rear of the 97.

    Lap 49: Curtain and Gegner not a fast duo easily get passed by the 81 of Anderson. Anderson moves out front and brings the 60 of Bleskachek with him. Nixon now up to 3rd with Kunkel and Farrell in tow.

    Lap 56: Anderson almost untouchable out front but here comes Caudill and Dalton with a big run on the inside line. Caudill clears for the lead down the backstretch but moves up in front of the 81 and leaves the 77 out to dry. Dalton not giving up though side drafts up to the door of the 88 into turn 3. Dalton able to work the air enough to slingshot around the 88 and into the lead at the line.

    Lap 59: Dalton not able to hold the lead for long gives it up to Nixon. Then Blanford took over for lap. Now Bleskachek working with Harris in the 42 moves to the front of the field. Several cars have lost touch with the lead pack. Harkleroad, Missimer, Woodard, Lennox, Llamas, Smetana, Root, and Spencer all falling behind and falling fast.

    Lap 61: Anderson has shuffled his way back to the front of the field with help from the 9 and 93. Move the Discount Tire 81 back to the point. Harris running 2nd, Kunkel 3rd, Busch 4th, and Mallon 5th.

    Lap 66: Anderson once again showing how strong that car is out front but now has opened up a large gap back to Farrell in 2nd. Farrell going to get a big tow from the 81 down the backstretch. Anderson a sitting duck as Farrell blows by and into the lead. Gegner right there with Isaacs looking to make a move on the 46 but can't make it happen this lap.

    Lap 68: The slower car of Root stacks things up at the front and causes another shuffle for the lead. This time Blanford comes out on top over Johnston, Curtain, Busch, and Gegner. Sean English in the 6 makes an unscheduled stop with a flat tire. The polesitter will lose a lap and rejoins just in front of the pack in danger of going down 2 laps.

    Lap 69: English much slower by himself gets eaten up by the pack and he will now be 2 laps off the lead. The stack up opens the window for Caudill to move back out in front ahead of Busch and Bleskachek. Mallon and Wichelman linked up just behind them waiting to make a move.

    Lap 72: Caudill going to hand over the race lead this lap to the 81 of Anderson. Anderson looks to be the fastest car out there and one of very few that can hold onto the lead for several laps. Everyone has kept it clean since the stage break, we may finish this race without another caution which means we will be looking at green flag stops in about 5 or so laps.

    Lap 78: Anderson can't be touched out front. The 81 easily able to keep the rest of the field behind. Dalton in the 77 is the only driver to even get alongside in the last 6 laps. Still no caution so we should see everyone cut to pit road in the next few laps to get a quick splash of fuel to make it the final 10 laps.

    Lap 80: 7 to go and here comes the first group of cars to pit road. Anderson leads them onto pit road. Everyone opts for fuel only. Anderson the first of the group to get off pit road.

    Lap 82: The 2nd group has come and gone down pit road leaving Caudill in the 88 at the head of the field with 5 laps to go. Busch, Hawkins, Blanford, DeCosta, and Coleman the last cars that have yet to pit but here they come now. Dalton, Harris, and Ingram the first guys on track that have pitted and come back up to speed. We'll see next time by how everyone shakes out.

    Lap 84: Hawkins and Caudill come out in front of everyone else on track. They have a chain of 11 cars coming up behind them and coming fast. Coming around to see 3 laps to go and there is no way they don't get caught before the end of the race.

    Lap 85: And they have been caught. They both manage to block the big run from behind and hold on but Busch in the 9 has a line going and moves up to 2nd getting around Caudill. Hawkins with a big gap back to 2nd stands no chance of blocking the run from the 9.

    Lap 86: 2 to go and Hawkins gets caught for the race lead. They race 4 wide for the lead into turn 1. Farrell on the inside by himself with Bleskachek and Busch leading the middle two lanes. Anderson right there in striking distance as well. If the 81 gets out front it may be all over. Down the backstretch and Farrell fades back. Busch and Bleksachek drag race side by side but here comes a big push from Anderson to the rear of the 60. Bleskachek and Anderson clear the pack as the race off of 4 and to the line to see the white flag.

    Lap 87: Anderson shoves Bleskachek way out in front over the rest of the lead group. The 81 to the inside in turn 1 as they race side by side for the lead. Anderson almost clears off of 2 but here comes Bleskachek back in the outside line as he side drafts the 81. They are slowing each other down and here comes the 46 of Farrell. Farrell closing fast with Busch and Kunkel in line behind him. 3 car lengths.... 2 car lengths.... Farrell to the rear bumper of the 81 and 60 into turn 4. He moves to the inside before Anderson can block. Anderson clears Bleskachek and moves up in front of the 60. Farrell side drafts Anderson off of 4 but Busch and Kunkel jump out of line and make it 4 wide down the frontstretch. Farrell inching forward as they race to the line. Checkered flag in the air and Anderson will take it in a 4 wide photo finish over Farrell, Kunkel, and Busch. Will Anderson wins at Armory Digital and punches his ticket to round 2 of the chase!

    RB- I knew we were a sitting duck there in the end. That 81 was in a league of their own, so I'm happy to come away with a top-5. Car was fast, we made the right pit calls and we were in position there at the end. If we keep building momentum like this we can definitely get this car in victory lane before the year's over.

    @BrendonH12: "Well, ol' Stevie Wonder looked like he was driving pretty blind out there tonight... I don't know; we had a good race going and then we just got taken out because someone was racing too hard, too early. Gotta thank Reese's for being on the car tonight - sorry that it's all torn up - Coke, Verizon, SBN, Chevy, and all the guys at HMS for all their hard work. Hey, and I wanna congratulate my good friend, Will, on his win - congrats @ShadowKnight508! On to the next one..."

    "Came to play but just a tad bit late to make one last ditch effort for the win now we just have to wait and see how the standings look for us."

    Will Anderson dominates the 2nd half of the race and makes a last lap move to take the win at Armory Digital Super Speedway. Anderson led a race high 22 laps and just edged out Bobby Farrell in a 4 wide photo finish. Kunkel comes across 3rd scoring a good amount of points after coming into this race dead last of the 15 chasers.

    Anderson locks into the 2nd round with his win tonight and Darren Ingram moves up to the top of points with 1 more race to go in the first round. Tough showings for a few chasers leaves the cutoff line very tight going into Darlington.

    Darlington has been run already and I will likely post that race as well in the next few days.

    MW10: “Damn... we had some really nice speed today, won the opening stage but we lost ground at the start of the second half of the race and just couldn’t get back up there. It’s a shame but we’ll rally and come back next week.”
