    Lap 20: Still some shuffling going on throughout the field but so far it's been all Zack Webster out front. Smetana still in 2nd but he has company to the inside into turn 1. Gegner to P2. That'll shuffle the 5 back to 3rd. Hooper about 1.5 seconds behind that battle in 4th. Dan Busch rounding out the top 5, currently 3 seconds off the pace of the 95. Kunkel, Harris, Isaacs, and Wichelman just behind the 9 running 6th through 9th with Spencer completing the top 10 after 20 laps.

    Lap 23: New leader off of turn 2. James Gegner has moved the DirectTv 29 to the front of the field getting around Webster. Smetana takes a quick look for 2nd in turn 3 but to no avail.

    Lap 26: Issues for our 3rd place runner Smetana. Looks like a flat right rear tire for the 5. Looks to be some right rear damage after contact with the outside wall and that has cut the right rear down. 4 tires and a quick pull on the rear quarter panel and he'll rejoin the race 1 lap off the pace.

    Lap 28: Smetana's issue puts a new driver into the top 10. Hancock now in P10 but a fast pace by the top 2 leaves the 45 car 8.5 seconds off the lead. Hooper inherits 3rd, Busch now 4th, Isaacs 5th, Harris P6, Spencer now up to 7th, Kunkel running 8th, and Wichelman still 9th.

    Lap 38: Gegner still leading by 7 tenths over Webster. Hooper still 3rd but has fallen way behind now 6.5 seconds off the pace. Isaacs has moved up to 4th with Harris in 5th. Spencer is now running 6th with Busch falling back to 7th. 8th through 10th has been a tight contest over the last several laps but as they run Wichelman holds down 8th with Kunkel 9th and Llamas now into the top 10. More issues for Smetana in the 5, this time it is terminal with an engine failure for our outside pole sitter. Smetana the first retiree of the night.

    Lap 50: Webster back to the lead into turn 1. Gegner might have a tire going down as he as slowed down dramatically the last few laps. Tires are nearing the end of their life for everyone else on track as well so green flag pitstops should begin in a few laps.

    Lap 51: And green flag stops begin as Webster and Gegner both hit pit road. Hooper, Busch, and Hancock also pit giving up their spots inside the top 10. Everyone else stays out.

    Lap 52: Issues for the 79 of Nixon. He slows going into turn 1 and comes to a stop in turn 2. The 79 without power and the caution will come out just as we were getting started with pitstops. Joey Isaacs the race leader as we go under yellow for the first time of the night. Unfortunately for the 5 drivers that pitted just before the caution came out they will be scored 1 lap down.

    Green flag back out at Darlington as Isaacs brings the field back up to speed.

    [​IMG]

    Lap 56: Isaacs a decent start but he cannot clear Webster into turn 1. Webster and Gegner dominated the first 50 laps and are battling hard to try and race their way back onto the lead lap into turn 2. Isaacs way up into the dust in turn 2 and has to lift and that allows Busch and Hooper to go by as well. Nixon now taking a look to get one of his laps back in turns 3 and 4 with Hancock in the 45 just behind.

    Lap 57: Nixon clears and now moves to the inside of Busch into turn 1. Busch backs out and that lets Isaacs get underneath the 9 in turn 2. Busch trying to keep the leader behind but he pushes too hard and grabs the wall. Further back chaser Jacob Craigo also picks up a stripe battling just outside the top 10. Dalton has moved into 2nd and Wichelman has rebounded to 3rd after his early run in with the wall.

    Lap 59: Craigo again into the wall in turns 1 and 2. This time much harder and he gets hit in the rear off turn 2 by Farrell. Craigo gets turned into Anderson and we have a wreck down the backstretch. Several cars collected at the back of the pack as the caution flies once again. Webster, Gegner, and Hooper will be back on the lead lap and Nixon gets 1 of his 3 laps back. Isaacs still the leader.

    Breaking this down Craigo struggling mid pack catches the outside wall once again. That slows the 62 up a bunch on the exit of 2 and Farrell can't check up in time. The 46 gets into the left rear of Craigo and sends him down track into the 81 of Anderson. Anderson careens down track into the inside wall and spins. Farrell's car gets upset and he corrects into the outside wall then gets hit by the 47 of Johnston sending both cars spinning. DeCosta clips Farrell and spins. Woodard almost makes it through but the 41 catches the back end of Farrell and gets pretty significant front end damage. O'Reilly is the last car involved and he comes in late and takes out the back of the 47 of Johnston. Heavy damage to the front of the 16 as well. Everyone able to drive away but the 81 of Anderson will call it a race their after the hard driver's side impact with the inside wall. Anderson with his win last race is already locked in to the next round.

    Green flag back out once again as Slates gets a good start and clears the lapped cars into turn 1.

    [​IMG]

    Lap 64: Hancock aggressive on the restart trying to get back on the lead lap. He moves to the inside in turns 3 and 4 but Slates with too much momentum on the top clears off turn 4. Busch right there as well hoping to get by the 24 and stay ahead until the end of the stage or another caution.

    Lap 66: Slates with a couple laps on his tires compared to everyone else and it is noticeable. Hancock all over the rear bumper of the 24 in turns 1 and 2. The 45 diamonds off turn 2 to the inside and clears to get back on the lead lap. Busch next in line with Nixon just behind trying to get his 2nd lap back.

    Lap 68: Busch finally able to get around Slates using the same move as the 45 two laps prior. Nixon next up behind the 24 then its the 77 of Dalton who still holds down 2nd after the restart. Isaacs still 3rd with Spencer now 4th and Harris 5th.

    Lap 70: Nixon completes his pass of the leader off turn 4 and brings the 77 of Dalton with him into turn 1. Slates can't hold the 77 back on his older tires and Dalton will take over the race lead on lap 70.

    Lap 73: 20 to go until the end of the stage. The top 10 staying in line since the restart but just outside the top 10 we have some great racing going on. Harkleroad, Wichelman, and Coleman really going at it for 11th-13th. Wichelman got around Coleman and now also makes his move in 3 and 4 to get around the 54 of Harkleroad to take the 11th spot.
