ALMIROLA’S DETERMINATION AND PASSION IS MAKING HIM A THREAT FOR ROOKIE OF THE YEAR.>>THING I’M MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT IS WAKE UP EVERY MONK AND KNOWING I GET TO GO TO A RACE SHOP AND SEE RACE CARS WITH MY NAME ON TOP OF THE DOOR TO AN EXISTING TEAM BUT TRYING TO AMEND THE SEASON FOR THSITUATION.

HE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR ALL THE TRUCKS, ALL TRAILERS, AL THE UIPMENT. HE’S BEEN THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE IN MY RACING JUST BECAUSE OF T FACT THAT HE’S DONE IT. EVERY SATURDAY I’D GO PLAY BASEBALL IN THE MORNING AN THEN HAUL BUTT OVER TO THE RACETRACK TO WATCH HIM RACE. I HAD A LOT PEOPLE TELL ME I’M ONE OF THE MOST DETERMINED PEOPLE I’VE EVER MET. THE FACT I’VE TAKEN THE INITIATIVE TO PACK EVERYING UP, EVERYTHING I KNEW, EVERYTHING COMFORTABLE TO ME LIVING IN FLORIDA AND JUST TAKE THE BIG STEP AND MOVETO NORTH CALINA AND TAKE A CHANCE ON A CAREER. IT WAS TOUGH. AT THE SAME TIME IT WAS ONE OF THE EASIEST DECISIONS I’VE EVER MADE IN MY LIFE. TO TURN — TO TURN SOMETHING THAT WAS MEANT TO BE FUN IO A JOB AND STILL BE FUN, I DON’T THINK ANYBODY CAN ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE.>>ARIC ALMIROLA REALLY STARTING TO COME INTO HIS OWN. STARTED OUT DAYTONA NOT TOO GOOD. EVER SINCE THEN HAS IMPROVED S FINISH POSITION ALL THE WAY UP TO LAST RACE AT CHARLOTTE. HE’S WITH CHRIS AT THAT VODA.>>STEADILY IMPROVING. 16 POSITIONS, THAT’S THE GROUND HE’ MADE UP SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR. YOU’RE A YOUNG GUY. YOU’RE LEARNING IN THE TRUCK.

HOPEFULLY WE’LL GET TO SHOW THAT HERE IN VICTORY LANE THIS WEEKEND.>>THAT WAS A LOADED QUESTION FOR ARIC ALMIROLA. IF HE GETS TOP FIVE HE COULD WIN ROOKIE OF THE YEAR.

YOU WERE REAL GD IN ALL THE PRACTICE WE HAD HERE. BECAUSE YOU DIDN GET A CHANCE TO QUALIFY, YOU START BACK IN 12th. ANY CONCERN — CONCERNS ABOUT TRAFFIC?>>IT’S HARD TO PASS HERE.. I THINK ONCE EVERYBODY GETS TIME ON THEIR RACE CAR AND TIRES, I THINK THE GOOD TRACK WILL PROBABLY SHINE ON MORE AND IT WILL BE EASIER TO PASS. IN PRACTICE A FEW DAYS AGO, TWO DAYS WE’VE BEEN HERE IN PRACTICE IT WAS REALLY HARD TO PASS.>>IF YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE A PASS, WILL IT BE HIGH SIDE OR LOW SIDE?>>I THINK A GUY CAN GO AROUND THE OUTSIDE IF SOMEBODY IS AT THE BOTTOM. I THINK IT WILL B MORE OF A SLIDE JOB JUST TO GET BY.>>A LITTLE DIRT TRACKING. THAT’S MIKE BLISS’ SPECIALTY. WE’LL SEE HOW GOOD THE 16 IS TODAY. GUYS?>>THANK YOU, RAY. MIKE BLISS, WE TALKED WITH A LOT OF THE CREW CHIEFS UPIER — EARLIER TODAY. THEY WERE TA ABOUT HOW MIKE BLISS IS THE GUY HE’S CLASS OF THE FIELD. WITHOUT A DOUT DOUBT.

JOINING US TODAY MR. EXTEMENT JIMMY SPENCER. FIRST, BILL, LET’S TALK A LITTLE ABOUT STRATEGY. WHAT’S THE WORD I THE GARAGE?>>AS WE HEARD MIKE BLISS TELL US A FEW MOMENTS AGO HOW DIFFICULT MANSFIELD IS. ALL THE TALK IN THE GARAGE AREA IS HOW QUICK CAN THEY MAKE THEIR PIT STOPS AND MAKE IT THE REST OF THE DISTANCE ON FUEL IN ORDER TO HAVE GOOD TRACK POSITION. SOME TEAMS ARE TALKING ABOUT PITTING AS EARLY AS LAP 30 AND AGAIN LATE IN THEEND TO HAVE ENOUGH FOOUV FUEL.>>STRATEGY WHEN YOU COME IN. WHEN YOU COME IN, P STOPS ARDIFFICULT HERE.>>YEAH, LAST YEAR AT THIS RACETRACK WE MADE LOT OF MISTAKES. I DON’T THINK YOU CAN MAKE A MISTAKE AND N THIS RACE. PIT ROAD IS VERY SMA. WE’RE ON A SMALL TRACK. WHEN YOU MAKE THAT DECISION, ONCE YOU COME OUT OF THERE WITH TIRES OR NO TIRES,T WILL BE CRITICAL IF YOU MAKE MORE THAN ONE PIT STOP, I DON’T THINK IT WILL BE A FACTOR IN TODAY’S RACE.>>IF THERE’S A POSSIBILITY OF PASSING AS MANY TRUCKS AS YOU SSED LAST YEAR, COULD YOU NOT MAKE MORE THAN TWO STOPS AND WIN?>>YOU STILL COULD. I THINK IT’S A GAMBLE ON SOME OF THE OTHER TRUCKS. I THINK CERTAIN GUYS ARE GREAT SHORT TRACK EXPERTS. HORNADAY, PETERS. THEY MIGHT BE ABLE T CHALLENGE THE MISTAKES.>>I’M THINKING IT’S GOING TO BE TOUGH ESPECIALLY WITH THE TIRES, A DIFFERENT TIRE THAN THEY H LAST YEAR.>>WOULDOU PASS ON THE HIGH SIDE OF THE TRACK?>>YOU CAN PASS ON THE OUTSIDE. THAT IS THE PREMIER GROOVE TO GET HIGH IN ONE AND TWO AND YOU CAN PASS THREE AND FOUR IN THE BOTTOM. YOU CAN MAKE IT.>>SOME GUYS HAVE TO MOVE OTHER GUYS OUT OF THE WAY IF THEY WANT TO MAKE PASSES. WE’LL SEE THAT SHORTLY. LET’S LIST TO TODAY’S COMMAND.>>RIGHT NOW LET’S GET THE COMMAND TO FIRE ENGINES. WELL, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS TIME. WITH GREAT HONOR AND INTRODUCED AGAIN MY FRIEND AND THE GREAT MAYOR OF MANSFIELD, OHIO, MISS LORNA REED TO GIVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WORDS IN THE SPORT OF RACING. LYDIA?>>DRIVE, START YOUR ENGINES.>>LET’S GO!>>LYDIA REED, THE MAYOR OF MANSFIELD, OO. WE ARE GOING T COME BACK WITH A LOOK AT THE STARTING LINEUP OF THE CITY. ENGINES ARE FIRED UP. THAT MEANS THE DRIVERSRE ALL STRAPPED IN. THEY HAVE GOT WHAT WE WOULD THINK WOULD BE THE BEST SEATS IN THE HOUSE.>>THEY’LLINE THEM UP. WE’RE GOING RACING WHEN WE COME BACK TO MANSFIELD.>>WELCOME BACK TO MAPSFIELD. HOW ABOUT TH AARON’S LUCKY DODREAM BEAT UPGRADE. THEY’RE MOVING UP IN SEATS.>>THEY’LL PICK A COUPLE FANS, FORTUNATE ONES. THEY’RE ABLE TOPGRADE ALL THE Y TO THE SUITE. THEY DID THAT START OF LAST WEEK. MICHAEL WA VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT. THEY’LL DO IT HERE CONTINUALLY. THERE ARE TWO PEOPLE RIGHT THERE THAT WILL GO UTO THE SUITE.>>THEY MOVE UP TO THE SUITES. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE STARTING GROUP FOR TODAY’S RACE. UP ON THE BOWL AGAIN THIS IS SET BY OWNER’S POINTS. TYNE WILL BE ON ROW ONE AND WE’RE BEING TOLD TYNE WILL START ON THE OUTSIDE. HE HAS THE OPTION. HE CHOOSES THE OUTSIDE.>>THAT WILL BE AN ADVANTAGE ON THE SRT KNOWING TODD BODINE WILL HAVE THE HIGH GROOVE.>>HOWABOUT AUGGIE VIDOVICH WILL START OUTSIDEROW TWO.>>OOD START FOR VIDOVICH IN THE SERIES.>>THERE’S TERRY COOKN ROW THREE. WHAT A GREAT RUN HE HAD ON LOWE’SOTOR SPEED SPEEDWAY LAST WEEK. SECOND YEAR IN A ROW AT LOWE’S. DAVID STARR ON THE OUTSIDE OF ROW FOUR. THAT WILL BE AN INTERESTING MOVE TO SEE IF HE’LL BE ABLE TO MAKE HIS MOVE UP THE FRONT. HIS WIN THIS YEAR WAS AT A SHORT TRACK.>>HE WOT BE HERE LONG STARTING 18th RON HORNADAY. ARIC ALMIROLA, THE KEY WILL BE ROLLING THROUGH THE CENTERF THE CORNER. MIKE SKINNER STARTING BACK AT 20th.>>A LOT OF TALK. TIMOTHY PETERS IS ANOTHER ONE OF THE TRUCKS PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT BEING SO GOOD IN PRACTICE. HOW ABOUT MIKE GREEN –>>DIDN’T HE PLAYOOTBALL FOR THE BOSTON RED SOX?>>NO. MIKE “GATOR, GREENWELL STARTING IN THE 08 TRUCK TODAY.>>THE TWO LADIES SUTTON AND CROCK HER A REALLY GOOD TIME.>>THERE’S DEI DRIVER IN THE BUSCH NORTH RIES WILL BE DRIVING THIS WEEK.>>THOSE WHO DIDN’T QUALIFY — WE DIDN’T HAVE ANY QUALIFYING. THOSE BECAUSE OF POINTS WON’T MAKE THE SHOW MICHEL JOURDAIN AND TODD SCHAEFER.>>RIGHT AWAY, A FEW DUMPB TRUCKS FOR BOBBY HAMILTON. THIS TRU NOW HOW TO WIN ON THIS RACETRACK BECAUSE BOBBY HAS A WIN PREEF VEE ON — PREVIOUSLY ON THIS RACETRACK.>>THERE’S SETZER. EIGHT SHORT TRACK WINS STARTING IN A CHEVROLET.>>HERE WE GO WITH DAVID STARR THE GUY WHO WON THE LAST SHORT TRUCK RACE WE WERE AT. DAVID IN A GOOD SP.>>WE’RE GOING TO HAVE AN INTEREING RIDE ALONG WITH AUGGIE VIDOVICH TODAY. HE’LL START THIRD BECAUSE OF POINTS. HE WILL RIDE WITH A CAMERA FOR US TODAY. LES GO WITH KRISTA VODA.>>THIS TRACK IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER. THIS RACE UNLIKE ANY OTHER. SO UNIQUE. NOT JUST BECAUSE OF HOW SMALL THIS TRACK IS AT JUST A HALVE MILE, BUT ALSO BECAUSE IT WAS ONE OFHE BIGGEST FANS. THE FANS COME FROM ALL AROUND. THERE ARE TRAIN TRACKS. IN THE MORNING YOU SEE THE CROWDS OF PEOPLE APPEAR OUT OF WHAT SEEMS NOWHERE. EY COME IN. THEY GET TO WALK THE TRACK, MEET SOME OF THEIR FAVORITE IVERS. THIS IS THE ONLY NASCAR SANCTIONED TRACK THAT STILL HOLDS A NATIONAL TOURG SERIES A-WEEKLY RACING SERIES. IT’S VERY BIG NAMESAT THIS RACE HERE BECAUSE THESE FANS GET SEE SOME OF THEIR FAVORITES AS WELL. THEY’LGO TO THE BARN IN MANSFIELD. THEY SAY THAT’S A BIG ENT. NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE NASCAR CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES RACE.>>WE HEARD BILL TALK EARLIER ABOUT FUELILEAGE AND WHEN THEY’RE GOING TO COME IN AND GET THE FUEL THEY NEED TO GO TO THE END. I THINK TODAY MAYBE TOYOTA IS DEBATING. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE RACETRACKS WHERE WE HAVE LOTS OF CAUTIONS, MANSFIELD AT THE TOP OF THE LIST. 13 CAUTIONS TODAY THEY EXPECT FOR 890 LAPS BUT REALIZE THERE’S 20 GUYS IN THE FIELD TODAY THAT HAVE NEVER RACED HERE. THATREEDS CAUTIONS. SO, THE GUYS WANT TO GET TO PIT ROAD EARLIER. THE TOYOTAS MAY HAVE THE ADVANTAGE BECAUSE THEY GET THE BEST FUEL MILEAGE. THEY C COME IN EARLY AS LAP 30. GUYS, I’M HERE TO TELL YOU IN MY OPINION, IT’S THE PEOPLE WHO COME IN AT LAP 60-70 THAT ARE GOING TO HAVE THE REAL ADVANTAGE BECAUSE AT THE VERY END OF THE RACE THEY’LL HAVE THE BEST TIRES. GUYS?>>AND THAT IS — WE’VE HEARD SO MY DIFFERENT STRATEGIES. THE UNDERLYING STRATEGY THAT CAME OUT WAS HOW EARLY CAN YOU GET IN FOR YOUR ONE STOP?>>SOME OF THE DRIVERS WERE TELLING ME THEIR FASTEST LAPS THEY RAN AROUND 120-130 LAP TIRES. IF YOU ADD IN THE GRAPHIC 37 LAPS, 37% OF THESE LAPS ARE RUN UNDER CAUTION THAT’S ONLY 150 OR SOMETHING TO 0 GREEN FLAG LAPS. IF THEY RUN THE FASST LAP AT LAP 130, THESE TIRES WILL LAST A LONG TIME.>>THE CREW CHIEF ALREADY SHOWED UP THEIR PLANS. IN O TIRES, AIR BLTHS BUILDS UP. WHEN YOU PUT ON NEW TIRES YOU HAVE MORE AIR. BOTTOM LINE I DON’T THINK YOU CAN PIT LATE IN THIS RACE AND WIN. I THINK THETRUCK HAS TO HANDLE REALLY GOOD. YOU’LL SEE THEM MAKEIG DECISIONON WHEN THEY PIT. THE GUWHO HANDLES HIMSELF WELL WILL WIN THE RACE.>>OFFICIALS LETTING THEMNOW NEXT TIME BY WE WILL GO GREENSPAN. SHORT TRACK RANG CONTINUING IN THE NASCAR CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES.>>WE TALK ABOUT AERODYNAMICS AND ALL THAT. YEAH, YOU HAVE TO HAVE HORSEPOWER. IT’S NOT NEARLY AS CRITICAL. THIS IS THE SHORTEST RACETRACK THESE TRUCKS WILL RUN ON THI YEAR. THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO HANDLE THIS. JIMMY SAID YOU NEED TO GET THE TRUCK GOES IN THE — GOING IN THE OPPITE DIRECTION IN THE CORNER.>>WE’LL SEE THE HIGH GROOVE OR WE SAY THE HIGH GROOVE. THEY’RE GOING TO RUN UP A BIT HIGHER ON THE TRACK. GUYS WILL TRY TO IN THE DIRT TRACK WILL DO THE SLIDE JOB. COME IN SLOW UNDERNEATH AND COME IN FRONT OF THE TRACK.>>A LOT OF INTIMIDATIO WE’LL SEE A LO OF GUYS TRYING TO SQUEEZE EACH OTHER.>>WE’LL SEE IT RIGHT NOW AS THEY COME OUT RACING IN MANSFIELD!>>TODD BODINE SHOWS THE OUTSIDE LINE FOR HIS START. LOOKS AS THOUGH IT WILL WORK FOR HIM. HE GETS OUT IN FRONT. TED MUSGRAVE. RIGHT BEHIND THEM IS DAVID REUTIMANN. TOYOTA, TOYOTA, TOYOTA YOUR TOP THREE.>>THREE-WID RACING BACK THERE. RON HORNADAY ON THE BOTTOM OF THE RACETRACK. I REMEMBER ST YEAR THE SAME INITIATIVE. HE’S TRIEDO WORK IT. IF HE WANTS TO MAKE HIS TRUCK WORK ON THE BOTTOM. FEWER GOING TO PASS, YOUGOER IT OPT BOTTOM.>>THREE WIDE ONCE AGAIN COMING OFF WITH HORNADAY — I’M SORRY WITH SKINNER. THIS GUY HERE SKINNER HAD A GOOD TRUCK. HE GOT A LITTLE LOOSEHERE.>>SHORT TRACK RACING. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TRACKS WHERE WE TALK ABOUT MARTINSVILLE AS A COMPARISON. THIS ONE HAS SHORT, SHORT ONTSTRETCH AND BREACH AND WIDE BANKINGORNERS HERE.>>– BARACHETTI AND WIDE BANKINCORNERS HERE.>>– BACKSTRETCH AND WIDE BANKING CORNERS.>>THIS TRACK IS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY THAN THE TRACK SHAPED IN ORANGE COUNTY SHAPED A LOT LIKE THIS RACETRACK WITH A LITTLE SHORTER STRAIGHTAWAY CORNER. ALREADY SEE THE TOP THREE TRUCKS WITH TODD AND TEDDY AND REUTIMANN PULLING AWAY. WHAT THEY’RE DOING IS THEY’RE ALREADY WORKING THAT SIDE GROOVE. WE’VE SEEN HOW MUCH HIGHER THEY ARE ALREADY.>>SETZER STARTED BACK IN THE EIGHTH POSITIOENT HE’S ALREADY MOVED UP TO FOURTH. YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO LOOK AS HIM AS ONE OF THE THREATS TO WIN.>>WE HAVE BENSON. RIGHT BEHIND HIM KINSER GETS SPUN AROUND BECAUSE HE COULDN’T TELL HE SLOWED. SLAMS ON THE BRAKES AND GETSNTO THE WALL IN TURN ONE.>>IT LOOKED LIKE THIS ME SOMETHING HAPPEN TO HIS TRUCK IN TURN TWO, THREE AND FOUR HE WAS HIGH ON THE RACETRACK. KINSER JUST GOT A LITTLE LOOTH LOOSE GHT THERE.>>RAY, WHAT WAS GOING ON DOWN THERE?>>IT WAS A FLAT TIRE ON BENSON’S TRU. ‘S TRIED TO GET TO THE HIGH SIDE, KINSER ALREADY COMMITT TO GO HIGH. THAT LEFT HIM OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. JOHNNY BENSON NEEDS TO GET TO THE PITS WITH HIS 23 TOYOTA BECAUSE HE HAS A FLAT TIRE ON THE LEFT REAR.>>OBVIOUSLY LAP SIX THIS IS — NOBODY’S GOING TO COME IN. COULD TH EVEN TELL THEY’RE HANDLING IT BAD?>>LET’S TAKE A LOOK BACK AT WHAT HAPPENED THERE. YOUSEE JOHNNY ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RACETRACK. KRAIG KINSER CAME IN THERE. HE SAW JOHNNY. LOOKED LIKE HE LOST THE BRAKES ANSLID THE REAR TIRES AND THAT TURNED HIM AROUND.>>YEAH, THE WAY I PLAY THIS ONE HERE AS A SPOTTER. THIS KID IS A ROOKIE. HE NEEDED TO WARN THE DRIVER THAT WE HAVE A PROBLEM UP HERE WITH THE 23 TRUCK AND HEID NOT DO THAT BELIEVE. I THINK THAT’S WHAT CAUSED IT. — IT TO SPIN OUT.>>COMING OFF PIT ROAD. JOHNNY BENSON, THE 04 AND SCOTT LAGASSE MAKING A STOP.>>>NASCAR CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES ON SPEED IS PRESENTED BY –>>GUYS, I WAS WONDERING WHETHER JOHNNY BENSON RAN INTO SOMEBODY TO GET THAT FLAT TIRE. HE SAID ON THE FIRST LAP IT DIDN’T FEEL RI. IT WAS A LEFT REAR. J. B. CAME IN D PUT LEFT SIDES ON. BACK OUT TO THE RACETRACK MAKE ANOTHER LAP AND COME DOWN AND GET RIGHT. THAT’S THE WAY YOU HE TO PIT RE BECAUSE IT TAKES SO LONG ON PIT ROAD.>>HE’S STILL A ROOKIE. HE’S LEARNING THE TRACK MORE SO THAN ANY OTHER IVER BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T GET TO TAKE ANY LAPS IN HAPPY HOUR. THEY MADE CONTACT WITH AUGGIE VIDOVICH IN THE SIX TRUCK IN YESTERDAY’S FIRST PRACTICE. KRAIG KINSER, THEY HAD TO BANG OUT SHEET METAL. HEITTED WITH LEFT SIDE DAMAGE. HE HE HAS A LOT OF DAMAGE ON THE LEFT SIDE. HE DID GET INTO THE WA ON THIS ACCIDENT. AGAIN, THIS BROUGHT OUT OUR FIRST CAUTION OF THE DAY AND THERE YOU SEE JOHNNY MOVED WAY UP HIGH OUT OF THE GROOVE, BUT, JIMMY, AS YOU MENTIONED, KRAIG KINSER CAME IN TOO HOT AND LOCKED THE REAR BRAKES AND SPLIT THE REAR WHEEL AND OUND HE WENT.>>THING IS NOW WITH THE DAMAGE HE’S GOT, IT DOESN’T LOOK THAT BAD. IT’S ENOUGH IT’S KNOCKED OUT, LEFT FRONT FERND. HE’LL BE IN THERE FOR A LONG DAY.>>REALLY SETS THE PASS AS FAR AS IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM EARLY ON. VERY TRUE.>>T MUSGRAVE NUMBER NINE. DAVID REUTIMANN ALSO IN A TOYOTA AND MOVING UP QUICKLY THE CHEVROLET OFENNIS SETZER, THE 85 CHEVROLET. CURRENTLY RUNNING IN FOURTH.>>WE SAW TED MUSGRAVE GLANCE UNDERNEATHODD BODINE AND MADE THAT MOVE TO TRY TO GET UNDER TODD. DAVID REUTIMANN WAS READY TO POUNCE ON HIM. DRIVES TO THE OUTSIDE. MAKES IT EASIER TO PASS ON THE OUTSIDE. BANKING UP AT THE TOP OF THE RACETRACK. THAT’S WHY WHY THE GROOVE’S UP THERE.>>MORE RUBBER BEING PUT DOWN ON THE HIGH SIDE OF THE TRACK. THAT’S WHERE IT LOOKS LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN RIGHT NOW GOING AROUND THE TRACK.>>GOOD BATTLE OUT THERE. VID STARR LOOKS TO THE INSIDE OF DENNIS SETZER. LAST TIME BY SEES IF HE COULD DRIVE UP THE INSIDE. IT’S HARD TO GET A BITE DOWN DOWN THERE. YOU PULLS UP ALMOST EVEN BUT THE OUTSIDEGROOVE HAS MORE BANKING AND HE’S ABLE TO CARRY MORE SPEED THROUGH THE CENTER OF THE CORNER. VERY, VERY DIFFILT TO PASS ON THE BOTTOM.>>IN PRACTICE YESTERDAY, DAVID STARR TRIED THE SAME GROOVE. GOT ON THE I INSIDE RIGHT THERE AND GOT SIDEWAYS AND HAD TO BACKAY OFF. APPARENTLY HE’S GOT SOMETHING WITH THE HANDLING THAT TRUCK A BIT BETTER BECAUSE HE’S GOING TO MAKE THE PASS. DOWN THE BACKSTRETCH. SIDE BY SIDE.>>HE’LL BE THREE AND FOUR. I THINK HE CAN GET THE JUMP HE NEEDS. YOU SEE WITH DENNIS.>>A LOT OF THE TALK IN THE GARAGE AREA WAS HOW GOOD HIS TRUCK WAS. HE WAS ONE OF TWO OR THREE TRUCKS MENTIONED ALL THE TIME ABOUT HOW GOOD HE WAS.>>NOW THAT THAT RESTART, WE’VE ALSO SEEN THE FIELD CLOSING UP A LOT CLOSER. WE DON’T SEE T PULLING AWAY. RIGHT NOW THEY’RE ALL PRETTY CLOSE.>>COMING UP ON LAP8.>>ON THE RESTART ARE, TODD BODINE WAS ALE ABLTO GET OUT. DAVID STARR HAS BEEN IMPRESSIVE.>>THIS SEVEN TRUCK OF TURNER, HE’S GOT A GIGANTIC DRP BETWEEN 08 AND OP. TODD BODINE IS CLOSING QUICKLY AND LAPPING SOME TRUCKS HERE.>>THERE’S BOBBY HAMILTON JR. ON THE INSIDE OF AUGGIE VIDOVICH. ALL THE BOBBY HAMILTON TRUCKS TALKED ABOUT BEING GOOD FROM HAMILTON AND SCOTT LAGASSE JR. AS THEY GO TOUGH TURN ONE AND TWO, THEY’RE STARTING TO CATCH UP WITH THE SLOWER TRUCKS ONTHE TRACK. WE’LL SEE LAP TRAFFIC COME VERY SOON AS TODD BODINE CURRENTLY BEHIND THE NUMBER ONE OF ROBERT RICHARDSON. LOOKING TO GET BY DAVID REUTIMAN DAVID LOOKS TO BE THE BEST CAR ON THE RACETRACK. HE WAS ABLE TO GET BY DENNIS SETZER WHICH IS NO SMALL FEAT.>>THE THING ABOUT DAVID’S TRUCK IS THAT HIS TRUCKUST WHEELS THE CORNER AND CES OFF STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW. THERE’S AN ADVANTAGE TO THAT.>>HE SOUNDS LIKE HE’S HAVING A GOOD TIME IN THAT TRUCK.>>YEAH, HE’S REAL HAPPY WITH IT, GUYS. WHEN WE R INTO MARTINSVILLE, WE THOUGHT THEY WERE CRAZY FOR STAYING OUT SO LONG IN THE RED HORSE RACING TOYOTA. GUESS WHAT? IT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF A MISTAKE. THEY HOPED TO COME DOWN TO PIT ROAD AND A MISCOMMUNICATION MADE THEM NOT PIT. THEN, THEY WERE 22 LAPS SHORT OF FUEL. AS THERE WERE MORE AND MO UTIONS TO THE RACE, IT ENDED UP THAT HE HAD ENOUGH FUEL TO THE END OF THE RACE AND THEY STAYED OUT. THE QUESTION IS DO THE 11 TRUCKS HAVE IT ATLL AT MANSFIELD? — MANCE PEALED? — MANSFIELD?>>EVEN WITH THE AMOUNT OF CAUTIONS WE EXPECT TO HAVE. 250 LAPS, THAT’S UNHEARD OF IN A CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES.>>WE HAVE A CAUTION COMING BACK OUT. COND CAUTION NOW.>>MIGHT HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM WITH THE 21 TRUCK OF BOBBY EAST. HE WAS SLOW ON THE BACKSTRETCH.>>HE WAS BACK. FROM THE 07 ONCE AGAIN ERIN CROCKER, THEY WERE SO CLOSE TO BEING A LAP DOWN. WEGO WITH WHAT HAPPENED HERE. HE GOT SOMHELP RIGHT THERE. SOMEBODY TRIED TO GET UNDERNEATH HIM. LOOKS LIKE A BLACK TRUCK, 15 KYLE KRISILOFF MADE A LITTLE CONTACT.>>YOU’LL SEE A LOT OF CONTACT HERE. AS YOU MENTIOD IN THE ROOKIE MEETING, THE SERIES DIRECTOR SAID YOU’LL BE HIT. YOU’LL DO SOME HITTING. YOU BETTER GET USED TO IT.>>YEAH, THAT’S SHORT TRACK RACING.>>NO DAMAGE. I THINK HE’LL BE FINE. RIGHT THERE HE DIDN’T HIT ANYTHING. NEW TIRES AND FUEL.>>SECOND CAUTION COMES OUT. MANSFIELD STILL OUT IN FRONT OF TEAMMATE TED MUSGRAVE. DAVID REUTIMANN AND DAVID STARROUR TOP FOUR.>>WELCOME BACK TO MANSFIELD. AARON’S LUCKY DOG GOES TO KRAIG KINSER. HE HAD THE FIRST SPIN WHEN THE CAUTION CAME OUT. THE 60 TRUCK OF JACK SPRAGUE THE CON-WAY TONY KANAANA. DO YOU THINK THIS WILL BE HIS ONLY PIT STOP? YOU INK HE’LL TRY TO MAKE IT FROM LAP 29. WHAT DO YOU THINK, RAY?>>YEAH, PHIL, THAT IS DEFINITELY THE PLAN. THEY WERE HOPINGO GET TO LAP 40. THAT GIVES YOU A GOOD CUSHION IF WE HAVE A GREEN LIGHT CHECKERED. THERE’S A GOOD CHANCE WE WILL. THEY SAID WE DON’T WANTO TAKE A CHANCE. YOU’VE GOT TO DO WHAT THE OTHER GIS GUY IS DOING. COMING IN AT 29 IS GOING TO PUT THEM ON THE EDGE OF THE FUEL MILEAGE. THEY’RE HOPING THEY GET 80-85 LAPS OF CAUTION AND THEY’LL BE AWFULLY CLOSE.>>I LIKE THA STRATEGY. GUYS SAY LET’S SAY SOMHING HAPPENS.>>THAT’S COUNTING ON 80 LAPS OF CAUTION EVEN TUGH IT’S HAPPED IN THE PAST, YOU REALLY CAN’T RELY ON IT.>>YOU CAN’T RELY ON IT. OBVIOUSLY THEY HAVE THE OPTION OF COMING IN. IF WE GO 75-80 LAPS WITH NO CAUTION, HE’LL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TOOME BACK IN. IF THEY’RE LIKE WE’RE NOT GOING TO GET ENOUGH CAUTION LAPS, WE’LL HAVE TO COME BACK IN BUT THEY WILL E THEN THEY’LL BE IN THE SAME BT AS EVERYBODY ELSE BECAUSE THAT’S WHEN THE RESTEST TEAMS WILL MAKE THEIR P STOPS.>>WE DON’T WANT TO COUNT ANYBODY OUT STOPPING ONCE OR TWICE BECAUSE, JIMMY, YOU STOPPED NUMEROUS TIMES LAST YEAR AND UNDER ONE OF THE BEST TRUCKS ON THE TRACK. YEAH, BUT BACK TO THE GREEN LIGHT.>>TED MUSGRAVE CONSTANTLY IS USING THAT GROOVE COMING OFF OF TWO. IT SEEMS TO START TO COME IN THERE. YOU ALSO SEE THE 11 TRUCK BEING DOING THAT.>>DAVID TO LOOK TO MOVE TO THE INSIDE OF TED MUSGRAVE. THEY’RE COMING OUT OF FOUR. YOU SAW MANY TIMES DAVID REUTIMANN LOOK TO TH INSIDE. HE GOT A LITTLE BIT LOOSE.>>IT’S HARD TO GET ON –>>DAVID REUTIMANN MADE A LITTLE CONTACT WITH THE OUTSIDE WALL OFF TWO.>>DAVID STARR, THIS TRUCK 17 TRUCK. WAH THIS 11 TRUCK.

THE KID IS GETTING AGGREIVE. NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT ON SHORT TRACK RACING. HE’S GOT TOET GOING.>>FRESH TIRES. THEY TALKED ABOUT THESE TIRES BEING A LITTLE HDER THAN PROBABLY WHAT THE TRACK REALLY NEEDS. PROBABLY GO THE WHOLRACE EYE THINK GOODYEAR OVERREACTED. THEY HAVE WAY O HARD A TIRE. YOU’ SEE THAT TOMORROW NIGHT AT CHARLOTTE ALSO. SOMETIMES THAT MAKESOOD RACING WHEN YOU GET SO CONSERVATIVE AND THEN THE FIELD CAN ALL BE THE SAME SPEED IN IN THEIR DEFENSE, THEY THOUGHT THERE WAS GOING TO BE A REPAVING JOB. GOOD SIDE BY SIDE 14 AND FIVE TRUCK. AGAIN, MIKE’S THERE. THAT’S THE HARD WAY TO DO IT ON THE BOTTOM OF THE RACETRACK. HE’S ABLE TOTAY WITH TRICYCLE SEE IF HE CAN BEAT HIM TO TURN ONE.>>THAT’S THE SAME MOVE DAVID STARR MADE EASE — EARLIER AND HE PREVAILED. HE’S GOING TO TRY TO DO IT.>>SIDE BY SIDE INTO THREE A FOUR. RAY, HOW IS SKINNER DOING?>>HE FEELS REALLY GOOD ABOUT THIS TRUCK. HE SHOULD. THIS ISHASSIS 70. ACTUALLY WHEN THEY GO SHORT TRACK RACING, HE REALLY LOVES THIS ONE. SKINNER TOLD ME BEFORE THIS THING STARTED, THERE’S NO WAY HE CAN PASS ONHE HIGH SIDE. HE’S GOT T BE TUCKED DOWN TO THE WHITE LINE.>>HE MADE THE PROPER PASS. HE WAS ABLE TO GET BY ON THE LOW SIDE. MADE A LITTLE CONTACT THOUGH.>>IT WAS SIDE BY SIDE. WATCH THEM COME OFF TURN FOUR.>>KELLY SUTSON — SUTTON IS GETTING TURNED. ACE MENTIONED, SPINS ON TURN FOUR.

A TOUGH SITUATION. EVERYBODY ABLE TO NEGOTIATE AROUND HER.>>GOT A LOT OF DAMAGE TO THE LEFT REAR.>>A LOT OF DAMAGE. LEFT, REAR CORNER THERE.>>PROBABLY GOT SOME HEL I’M SURE — YES, IT DOES. LOOKS LIKE SHE GOT POUND FROM BEHIND.>>42 LAMBS INTO THIS THING. PIT ROAD IS NOT OPEN YET. I THINK PEOPLE ARE DEFINITELY GETTING TOWARDS THEIR WINDOW. HEARD AGAIN ANYWHERE FROM 30-75 LAPS IN, PEOPLE FEL LIKE THEY ULD BE IN THEIR WINDOW.>>THIS COULD BE THE TIME WHEN WE WIL SEE THE MAJORITY OF THE FIELD COME DOWN PIT ROAD. IF THEY DO, WE’L BE HERE TO SHOW IT TO YOU.>>SHORT TRACK RACING BUMPING AND BANGING CONTINUING IN MANSFIELD.>>WELCOME BACK TO THE CITY OF MANSFIELD 250 PRESENTED ON SPEED BY SCOTTS.

KYLE GOT –YLE KRISILOFF GOT OFF A LITTLE SLOW.>>THEY MADE SOME CONTACT. WOE, THERE’S MORE CONTACTMENT — WHOA, THERE’S MORE CONTACT.>>THE CHEERIOS TRUCK MAKES CONTACT WITH KE KRISILOFF. HE MUST HAVE SOME — HE’S GOING TO COME TO A STOP. THIS IS GOING TO BRING OUT A CAUTION. YOU’LL SEE BOBBY EAST THE 21 TRUCK. THE 15 TRUCK IS MOVING DOWN A LITTLE BIT. HE DIDN’T GO QUITE AS HIGH AS BOBBY EAST. THEY MADE SOME CONTACT. YOU SEE THE 98 CAUGHT A GLIMPSE. SHE WAS GOING TO MAKE SIGNIFICANT CONTACT WITH KYLE KRISILOFF. HE PROBABLY HAS A FLAT TIRE. HE STOPPED OUT THERE. NASCAR IS GOING TO — ON THE RACETRACK, NASCAR IS N GOING TO LIKE THAT TOO MUCH. THAT’S A PENALTY.>>YEAH, THAT WILL BEA PENALTY FOR INTENTIONALLY CAUSING A CAUTION FLAG.>>THAT IS DEFINITELY A PENALTY WITHOUT A QUESTION. THERE WANO REASON FOR HIM TO DO THAT. I THINK HE MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT HE HAD A FLAT TIRE. NASCAR WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT HERE.>>WHAT THE 98 DID HIT HIM PRETTY HARD AND SHE DID A GOOD JOB SAVING HER TRUCK, BUT HE UNRTUNATELY HIT THE FENCE.>>DAVID UTIMANN COMING DOWN PIT ROAD RIGHT NOW. HE WAS THE THIRD PLACE TRUCK WHEN THE CAUTION CAME OUT.>>AUGGIEVIDOVICH AS WELL AS KE SKINNER COMING DOWN PIT ROAD ALSO. A FEW MORE TRUCKS MAKING THEIR WAY DOWN PIT ROAD AS WE COMPLETED 51 LAPS OF RACE AGO STEVPARKS ALSO IN THE HARRIS TRUCK TRUCK. THAT MIGHT BE A FORD. THEY CHANGE TRUCKS ALL THE TIME.>>REUTIMANN WAS REALLY TIDE TIGHIN THE CORNERMENT THEY WANT TO MA AIR PRESSURE AND ADJUSTMENTS AND TRA BAR CHANGE. THEY ALREADY GOT THE LEFT SIDE TIRES OSE. WHENHE TRACK MAN COMES OVER, THEY HAVE TO BE STANDING THERE. THIS WILL BE A LONG PIT STOP HERE. THEY’LL HAVEO BE VERY CARE TOFL WATCH FOR THE PACE CAR. THEY’RE TO THE LEFT SIDE HERE. THEY’LL GET HIM OUT. HE’LL BE OK. AT THE SAME TIME, MIKE SKINNER WAS DOWN PIT ROAD HERE TO GET FOUR TIRES.>>AUGGIE VIDOVICH ALSO CAME WN. SKINNER RACED HIM OFF PIT ROAD THERE. LOOKS LIKE SKINNER WANTSO TAKE THAT POSITION AWAY COMING OFF PIT ROAD.>>THAT’S ALL FINE A GOOD UNSS THE YELLOW LIGHT COMES ON. HE WAS SPEEDING IN THE LAST SEGMENT. THAT HAPPENS SO OFTEN. FIRST SECOND COMING IN THE PITS AND LT SEGMENT GOING OFF PIT ROAD. THAT’S WHEN THE GUYS GET BUSTED FOR SPEED AGO NOTORIOUSLY KNOWN FOR CAUTIONS IN MANSFIELD. WE’VE HAD FOUR SO FAR. HOW MANY WL WE HAVE? 13 BEFORE.>>MOVING OUND THE ON THIS RESTART. WE SEE CRAWFORD BURSTING HIS WAY UP ON THE INSIDE OF THE 77. THIS IS SIDE BY SIDE SHORT TRACK RACING. THAT’S HOW YOU’LL HAVE TO DO IT TO PASS. YOU’LL HAVE TO FOR — FORCE YOUR WAY BY. YOU HAVE TO UTILIZE THE BOTTOM GOODRICH IT’S NOT EASY TO PASS DOWN THERE. WE’RE SEEING THEM START TO COME ABOUT. WE’RE STARTING TO SE MORE AND MORE TRUCKS MOVING DOWN LOW GETTING OFF THE CORNER.>>IF YOU’RE GOING TO PASS ANYBODY HEREYOU BETTER GET YOUR TRUCK WORKING DOWN ON THE BOTTOM OF THEACETRACK.>>Y SEE MIKE A LITTLE SIDEWAYS IN THE CORNER. HIS TRUCK IS OVER ROTATING. THAT’S WHAT THEY TOLD ME THEY WERE FIGHTING A LITTLE BIT. IT WAS OVERROTATING IN THE CENTER OF THE CORNER. WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THE 16?>>PHIL, MIKE CAME ON THE RADIO AND SAID WITH ALL THESE CAUTIONS, MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST STAY OUT AND GO THE DISTANCE AND NOT PIT. HIS OWNER SAID ABSOLUTELY NOT. WE’LL NEVER MAKE IT ON FUEL. THE CHEVROLETS HAVE A DISADVANTAGE. HE SAID THOSE TWO UP FRONT MIGHT DECIDE TO DO, THAT BUT WE CAN’T. THEY WILL DMIFTLY PIT THE NEXT TIME WE GET A CAUTION.>>YOU’RE RIGHT. I WAS TALK WITHAVE HUGHES BEFORE THE RACE AND HE WAS ONE OF THE GUYS TALKING ABOUT 75 LAPS. HE WANTED TO GET 75 LAPS IN BEFORE HE STOPPED. HE IS RUNNING A LITTLE HIGHER GE, JIMMY, THAN MOST GUYS. HE HAS A 650 GEAR. THAT MEANS THIS TRUCK WILL TURN LESS RPM’S AND THEORETICALLY GET BETTER FUEL MILEAGE THAN A — THAN A LOT OF OER GUYS RUNNING A 667.>>I WOULD THINK HE WOULD LOVE TO STAY OUT. LIKE YOU SEE, NO WAY WE CAN MAKE IT ON FUEL MILEAGEMENT ING A DRIVER, I DON’T WANT TO GIVE UP THIRD POSITION ON THE TRACK.>>AT SOME POINT IN TIME, I THINK YOU’VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO P. YEAH.>>I’M THINKING COULD PSIBLY MAKE IT THE WHOLE WAY. I REALLY BELIE SOME GUYSRE GOING TO TRY TO DO THAT. I BELIEVE MIKE HELLMAN WOULD VE BROUGHT HIS TEAM IN BY NOW. HE MIGHT BE ONE TAKE TAKING A SH.>>I DON’T THINK SO. AS WELL AS THEY’RE DOING IT, AS MANY RACES AS TODD HAS WON, AS GOOD A SEASON AS HE’S HAD, DON’T THINK THEY’LL THAT I CAN THAT GAMBLE BECAUSE THE TRUCK IS GOING TO WIN THE RACE WITHOUT TAKING A GAMBLE. I THINK NEXT TIME THE CAUTIO FLAG WAVES YOU’LL SEE THE 30 OF TODD BODINE AND THE NINE OF TED MUSGRAVE AND THE 16 OF MIKE BLISS BLISS ON PIT ROAD.>>FOLLOW THE LEADER.>>AND IT WILL BE THE SAME STRATEGY.>>THE THREE BEST TRUCKS. THEY ARE FIRST, SECOND AND THIRD. THEY JUST GO REALLY RACING AND THEY’RE ALSO PULLING AWAY FROM THE REST OF THE FIELD JUST CONSISTENTLY. YEAH, YOU’RE PROBABLY RIGHT. THEY MIGHT DO IT. DON’T UNDERESTIMATE IT. THEY MIGHT MAK IT.>>LAPS RUNNING AUT 17 SECONDS FLAT AROUND THE HALF MILE.>>WE HAD BOBBY EAST THAT TIME RUN A 16.96. THAT WAS ONLY A 10th OF A SECOND OFF THE FASTEST LAP ANYBODY HAS WON THIS ENTIRE RACE.>>BOBBY HAS ONE OF THE STO EARLY ON.>>ERIK DARNELL MOVG UP.>>99 WE TALKED ABOUT THE ROOKIES RACE AND ERIK DARNELL AND ARIC ALMIROLA. RNELL STILL LEEDE LEANG THE ROOKIES POINTS RACE RIGHT NOW.>>BOBBY EAST NOT ONE OF THE FOLKS WHSTOPPED. HE STARTED IN THE 15th POSITION. HE’S MADE H WAY UP TO THE FIFTH POSITION OBVIOUSLY SOME OF THE TRUCKS IN FRONT OF HIM HAVE STOPPED HE IS ON THE SAME TES HE STARTED TO RACE ON. HE’S GOT A GAT TRUCK. THERE’S THE 14 OF RICK CRAWFORD.

HE WAS UP ABOUT YOU FIFTH OR SIXTH SPOT ON THE RESTART. HE’SUST BEING PASSED CONSISTENTLY ON THE OUTSIDE FOR EVERYBODY. HAVING A LOT OF PROBLEMS. RON HORNADAY HERE AND SETZER JUST GOT AROUND HORNADAY IN THE 33. DENNIS SETZER RUNS WELL ON SHORT TRACKS.>>ONE OF THE TRUCKS WHO CAME IN AT THE LAST CAUTION. HE IS WELLS RONHORNADAY WORKING THEIR WAY UP TOWARD THE FRONT. PROBABLY MADE THEIR LAST STOP. THEY WON’T COME BACK IN. THEY’RE RACING FOR POSITION.>>YEAH, SETZER, PIT STRATEGY GOOD. THEY DIDN’T STOP QUITE AS EARLY AS SOME OF THE OER TEAMS LIKE JACK SPRAGUE AND JOEY MILLER. THEY DIDN’T STOP EARLY. DAVID REUTIMANN AND THE SIX HAVE ALREADY BEEN IN AND MIKE SKINNER AND STEVE PARK.>>ALL KINDS OF DIFFERING PIT STRAEMGS. 72 LAPS INT THIS RACE I THINK ANYBODY WILL BE IN THEIR PIT WIND WHEN THE CAUTION FLAG COMES OUT ALL THOSE TRUCKS WHO HAVE NOT PITTED YOU’LL SEE THEM.>>I KNOW TWO-WIDE RACING, A LOT OF PASSING. I LIKE THE PIP PIT STRATEGY. I LIKE GUYS PITTED. FRESH TIRES, NOT FRESH TIRES DEREK IS RUNNING A GOOD RACE RIT NOW.

I’M THINKING THAT TRUCK LAPPING THE TRUCK OF TURNER.>>HE WAS ONHE LEAD LAP.>>HE WAS. THERE WAS A GAP YOU MENTIONE EARLIER ABT 40-50 LAPS. THERE WAS A GAP IN FRONT OF HIM. WHENEVER YOU HAVE A GAP IN FRONT OF YOU, YOU BETTER REALIZE YOUR CK BUMPER WILL BE BEAT ON BECAUSE NOBODY WANTS TO SEE YOU GET IT.>>THAT’S RIGHT. HE DID HAVE A BIG GAP EARLIER. THE PROBLEM RIGHT THERE. THE THING IS ERIN CROCKER IS BEING AGGRESSI. FINALLY THIS IS THE TYPE OF RACING SHE’S DONE. NOT NOW WE’RGOING TO START SEEING PIT STOPS AGAIN.>>THE NINE AND 30 STAYED OUT, JIMMY.>>MIKE BLISS AND –>>I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS.>>THEY’RE GOING TO PIT, JIMMY.>>NOPE, I DON’T THINK THEY’RE GOING TO PIT. I THINK THEY CAN MAKE IT THE WHOLE WAY.>>THE 13 OF RICK CRAWFORD IS COMING IN. HE PULLS INTO HIS PIT STALL. I ASKED W WHEN THIS NEXT CAUTION COMES OUT, WILL YOU COME IN HE SAYS YES, THEY WILL. NOW THEY HAD TO. THEY HAD A LITTLE BIOF LEFT REAR SHEET METAL DAMAGE. MAKING A FOUR-TIP TIRE STOP. SOMETHING WITH THE 77 OF BRENDAN GAUGHAN. VERY HEATED. THERE’S SOTHING WRONG WITH HIS TRUCK. HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IT IS. UNDER WAY THE 16.>>MIKE BLISS COMES IN. THEY PUT FOUR TIRES ON. HANGUP ON THE LEFT RR. THEY WILL GET TH TIRES ON. HE WILL GO BACK TO THE RACETRACK. GUYS, YOU WERE ASKING ME ABOUT THE NINE AND THE 30. I JUST WENT UP TO BOTH OF THEIR CREW CHIEFS. SAID, WHEN E YOU GOING TO PIT? THEY SAID SOME TIME AROUND THE HAWAY POINT. SOUNDS LIKE A BIG BLUFF TO ME.>>THEY — I THINK –>>I THINK THEY ALREADY HAVE.>>WE’VE HEARD THAT BEFORE. SOME PEOPLE HOLDING THEIR STRATEGY A LITTLE CLOSER TO THE VEST. AARON’S LUCKY DOG GOES TO KELLY SUTTON. WE’LL BE BACK. ALREADY>>WELCOME BACK TO MANSFIELD. YOU GUYS HAVE NOT SPITTED. YOU TOLD ME YOU MIGHT COME HALFY. ARE YOU GUYS NOT GOING TO PIT TODAY?>>WE’RE JUST PLAYING A LITTLE DIFFERENGAME HERE. MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE THE LAST TWO DAYS. I MIGHT BE A LITTLE CONFUSED COMPARED TO EVERYBODY ELSE.>>I THINK THAT’S. HE’S TELLING US HE’S GOING TO PIT. BOY, I’M NOT SURE.>>MAJOR TROUBLE WITH BRENDAN GAUGHAN IN THE 77 DOE. CLAIMING OF AN ELECTRICAL ARCH. THEY’RE CHECKING FOR A LOSS OF ELECTRICITY SOMEWHERE. THEY DON’T SEE IT. THEY’RE NOT WHERE THAT ELECICAL ARCH IS COMING FROM. THEY HAD MISCOMMUNICATION ON THE RADIO. BRENDAN WASN’T SURE IF HE WERE GOING TO COME IN. CREW CHIEF LIBERATTI BROUGHT HIM IN. IT’S DEFINITY LOSS OF POWER FOR 77.>>YOU HEARD JUNIOR SAY HE WASN’T HERE LAS COUPLE OF YS. HERE’S REASON. HIS FATHER-IN-LAW PASSED AWAY THIS WEEK. OUR THAURTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TOIS WIFE JENNIFER ANTHE ENTIRE FAMILY.>>WE HAVE AN INTERESTING SITUATION. WE HAVE A LAPRUCK OF KYLE KRISILOFF 15 IN FRONT OF BOBBY EAST. THESE ARE THE TWO TRUCKS THAT GOT TOGETHER THAT CAUSED KYLE KRISILOFF PROBLEMS. IT WILL BENTERESTING TO SEE HOW MUCH ROOM HE GETS TO THE 21 OF BOBBY EAST A LITTLE WIG THERE WILL FOR KYLE KRISILOFF AS HE WAS GOING THROUGH TURN TWO.>>THEHING IS NASCAR DID PENALIZE HIM. HE DID LOSE ONE ON THE RACETRACK AND HE LOST ANOTHER ONEOR WHAT THEY GAINED ON THE RACETRACK. IT’S INTERESTING. HE IS DEFINITELY IN FRONT OF THE 21. THAT IS NOT A PLACE I DON’T INK THE 21 WOULD BE LOO — WOULD LIKE TO BE.>>HE’S SLOWING DOWN THE 21 OF BOBBY EAST. BEFORE BOBBY EAST WAS ABLE TO STAY ON THE REAR BUMPER OF TED MUSGRAVE IN THAT TOYOTA AND NOW THERE’S A BIG GAP BETWEEN TED MUSGRAVE AND KYLE KRISILOFF. RIGHT THERE CING POINT RIGHT BEHIND THE 23 OF JOHNNY BENSON. HE HAD THE EARLY FLAT LEFT REAR TIRE. HE’S THE THIRD TRUCK IN LINE THAT PITTED. HE’S THE THIRD ONE WHEN HE HAS — WE HAVE THE 67. WE HAVE THE 23 PITTED AND THE 11. THESE TWO GUYS HAVE PITTED. THIS IS WHAT THEY’LL DO THE REST OF THE YEAR. THINK THEY HAVE REALIZE HE’S WORKING TO THE BOTTOM OF THE RACETRACK. OW OFF DAY COMING OFF FOUR. GETTING UNDER JOHNNY HERE. HE KNOWS THE POSITION.>>BOBBY EAST RIGHT NOW IS USING HIS HEAD. REALLY GOOD DECISION ON BOBBY EAST’SART. HERE IS BOBBJR. HE’S ALREADY MADE A PIT STOP ALSO.>>THAT’S MIKE SKINNER THE FIVE TOYOTA RIGHT BEHIND HIM. LOOKS LIKE BOBBY IS GOING TO GET BY THE 46 BOTH OF — I’M SORRY. BOBBY HAMILN JR. MOVING UP TO 16th. AGAIN IT’S THE GERMYANE RACING TEAM SETTING ITSF APART FROM THE FIELD. MUSGRAVE HAS A CUSHION BETWEEN HIMSELF AND THIRD PLACE. BOBBY EAST AND THAT CUSHION BEING KYLE KRISILOFF OF THE 15. KRISILOFF NOT RUNNING AS FAST AS BOBBY EAST.>>I THINK TEMPOS GOING TO SET THE RACE HERE. I THINK RAY IS RIGHT. I THINK THEY’RE BLUFFING. I THINK 30 AND NINE WILL TR TO STAY OUT OF THE REST OF THE WAY. IF A CAUTION COMES OUT LIKE WE ANTICIPATE, THEN I COULD BECOME AN ISSUE. IF CAUTIONS DON’T COME, WE DON’T HAVE AN ISSUE. THEY’LL PROBABLY R OUT OF GAS.>>THEY HAVE TO CO IN.>>THEY MIGHT NOT THE WAY THIS RACE KEEPS GOING WITH ANOTHER CAUTION.>>THIS ULD BE A LONG TIME. THERE’S GOING TO BE 100 LAPS BEFORE THEY WOULD HAVE TO STOP I THINK UNDER GREEN. WE’RE GOING TO GET MORE CAUTIONS NO DOUBT BECAUSE THEY’VE GOT RIGHT NOW THE 30th TODD BODINE AND NINE OF TED MUSGRAVE PULLED OUT SUCH A LARGE LEAD OVER BOBBY EAST. YOU SEE TRYG TO GET BY THE 15 OF KYLE KRISILOFF. THIS IS THE SAME THREE THAT CRASHED EARLIER WITH ERIN CROCKER GETTING INTO THE 15. THIS IS THE RACING INCIDENT WITH THE 21 TRYING TO PASS THE 15 CAR.>>HE’S GOING TO SPIN RIGHT BEHIND HIM.>>THE 40 TRUCK RIGHT THERE. THAT’S RYAN MOORE MAKING HIS FIRST ER CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES START.>>SIXTH CAUTION OF THE DAY COMES OUT AGAIN. THTWO RACES THAT HAVE RUN HERE PREVIOUSLY 13 CAUTIONS IN EACH OF THOSE RACES. THIS TIME IT’S THE SIXTH CAUTION COMING OUT FOR RYAN MOOSH IN THE 40.>>HE S RIGHT BEHIND THAT GROUP OF BOBBY EAST AND ERIN CROCKER. HE WAS RUNNG UP IN THE TOP 10 RIGHT NOW. LOOKED LIKE THERE WAA CHAIN REACTION AND HE GOT A LITTLE DAMAGE AND TURN AROUND.>>HOW FRUSTRATED IS BOBBY EAST? HE WAS ALMOST BY KYLE KRISILOFF. KRISILOFF IS A LAPOWN AND HE’S RACING BOBBY EAST FOR POSITION. BAD NEWS FOR BOBBY EAST IS KYLE KRISILOFF IS TWO LAPS DOWN AND TURNER IS ONE LAP DOWN SO HEL GET THE AARON’S LUCKY DOG SO KYLE KRISILOFF WILL RESTART RIGHT WHERE HE DID THE LAST TIME RIGHT UP ONT.>>THE THING ABOUT IT IS, HE GIVING HIM ROOM. THE 15 TRUCK IS SLOW THAN HIM, BUT HE IS GIVING HIM ROOM.>>JIMMY, IF YOU WERE DRIVING THE 21 OF BOBBY EAST, I’D MOVE HIM. HAVE YOU VERY MUCH — THANK YOU RY MUCH. SOME POINT IN TIME, HE’S GOING TO PUNT I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST. HE’S RUNNING THIRDMENT BOBBY EA NEEDS TO BE A LITTLE MORE AGGRESSIVE IN THE SITUATION AND SAY NASCAR’S WATCHING. I DON’T THINK THE 21 INTEND IT. LET’S FORGET AUT IT AND GO RACING. THIS IS WHERE EAST IS LEARNING A VALUABLE LESSON TODAY. I’M SURE HE’LL BE SCHOOLE WHEN HE GETSOME. HE’S DOING A GOOD JOB.>>THE PACE TRUCK SETNG THE PACEROUND HERE. TODD BODINE HAS SET THE PACE UNDER GREEN THE ENTIRE RACE. 94 LAPS WE HAV RUN HAVE BEEN LED BY TODD BODINE.>>THEY’RE GOI TO OPEN PIT ROAD THIS TIME. WE’LL SEE IF THE 30 OF TODD BODINE AND THE NINE OF TED MUSGRAVE COME IN. THEY SAID CLOSER TO HALFWAY. HALFWAY ON THIS RACE WOUL BE 125. IT LOOKS AK AS THOUGH TODD BODINE — PIT ROAD IS STILL CLOSED RIGHT NOW. THE RED FLAG WITH THE YLOW X ON IT IS STILL OUT.>>WHAT AREHEY TALKING ABOUT DOING?>>PHIL, THEY ARE NOT BLUFFING ME. MIKE JR. JUVM JUST CAME OVER AND SAID IT’S SO HOT TODAY, PELE HAVE NO ID HOW MUCH HIS TIRES REALLY GOING TO GIVE UP. WE’VE NEVER RACED HEREHEN IT’S HOT. WE’RE GOING TO PIT. I’M NOT KIDDING YOU. HE SAID WE WANT TO GET CLOSER TO HALFWAY. WE BELIEVE TIRES WILL BE BETTER ON A LONG RUN IF WE’VE GOT THEM WITH 120 TO GO.>>WILL THAT HE HAVE LONG ROAD THOUGH? SO FAR WE’VE H PROBABLY AT THE MOST MAYBE 15 LAPS OF GREEN FLAG RACING.>>I THINK ALSO THE THING THEY’VE GOT TO LOOK AT IS THE HOT AND COLDYCLE. EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE GREEN FLAG RACING CAUTIONS, THEY PLAY HAVOC ON THE TIRES AS FAR AS GREEN CAUTION. GREEN CAUTION COOL DOWN AND HEAT UP.>>AND SO, THE STRATEGY STILL IS WILL THE GERMAINE TEAM COMES IN?>>ABOUT TO COMEUT OF TURN NUMBER FOUR. BACK TO RACING. MANSFIELD 250 PRESENTED ON SPEED. BOBBY EAST MADE A PIT STOP ON THAT CAUTION FLAG. HE’S NOT GOI TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE 15 OF KYLE KRISILOFF –>>LOOK OUT RON HORNADAY.>>HE’S THERE WITH THE 12 –>>RIGHT IN FRONT. ERIN CROCKER GETS SPUN AROUND.>>STILL COMININ. HERE COMES SEVEN. THEY’RE STILL ALL COMING IN.>>DOORS ARE FLYING.>>SHE HAD SUCH A GOOD RUN GOING, TOO. SHE HAD UP IN THE THIRD POSITION.

START TO LOSE HIS TRUCK HERE. HE DID NOT MEAN TO HIT HER.>>WHEN HE DID, HE MADE SOME CONTACT.>>THAT’S THE THING IS THAT SHE’S OK.>>H DIDN’T MEAN TO HIT ERIN CROCKER, BUT HE DID MEAN TO HIT THE BASEBALLHEN HE PLAYED FOR THE BOSTON RED SOX.>>OH, YEAH,LL-STAR PLAYER 1988-199 AND SECOND IN THE VOTING BACK IN 1988 TO BEAT JOSE CONSECO A GREAT, GREAT BASEBALL PLAYER ALL LOVED BY THE BOON FANS.

WHATRE THEY GOING TO HAVE TO DO?>>NOT ONLY TIRES, BUT FUEL. RON HORNADAY CAN MAKE IT. BIG QUESTION MARK IS CAN TED AND TODD MAKE IT ONLY IF WE GET A LOT MORE CAUTION LAPS.>>YEAH, I DON’T THINK IT’S AN ISSUE OF TIRES FOR THEM. I THINK IT’S AN ISSUE OF FUEL. I WOULD BE SNOKD THEY CAN RUN 250 LAPS I DON’T CE HOW MANY CAUTION LAPS WE HAVE, IF WE GET ON 250 LAPS IN THIS RACE, I’LL BE AMAZED.>>A LOT OF THIS HANG ON — HAPPENING ON SHORT TRACK.

WHAT IS NASR GOING TO DO ABOUT THAT? WE HAVE TO SEE.>>THEY’RE NOT GOING TO BLAME HIM FOR KNOCKING THAT PIECE OF SHEET METAL OFF. THEY MAY BME HIM FOR NOT HEEGD THE BLACK FLAG THEY GAV HIM. YBE THEY WON’T EVEN MAKE HIM COME IN FOR THE BLACK FLAG.>>WE’LL SEE NOW BECAUSE HE GOT PASSED BY THE 11 OF DAVID STARR. HE’S SEVENTH RIGHT NOW.>>SO, THEY SHOW HIM THE BLACK FLAG. ISN’T HE RESPONSIBLE TO COME IN RIGHT WHEN HE SEES THAT BLACK FLAG?>>AS SOON AS HE ACKNOWLEDGES THE BLACK FLAG, HE’S SUPPOD TO COME IN AND PIT. IT WILL BE INTERESTING NOW BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THE REASON FOR THE BLACK FLAG IS NOT THERE ANYMORE. SO, IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEWHAT NASCAR DOES IF THEY’RE GOING TO MAKE HIM COME DOWN PIT ROA OR PENALIZE HI FOR NOT HEEDING THE BLACK FLAG. I HOPE THEY SAY, HEY, IT CAME OFF. ALL’S GOOD.>>RIGHT. JOEY MLER.>>LOOK AT THE 30 TRUCK.>>HERE WE GO. SEE –>>TODD BODINE WILL COME DOWN PIT AD WITHOUT HIS TEAMMATE. SO, TODD BODINE COMES DOWN PIT ROAD. TED MUSGRAVE STAYS OUT.>>THIS IS — WAIT, WHAT’S GOING ON?>>IT’S VERY SIMPLE, GUYS. WHEN BODINE GETS HERE AND DOES HIS PIT STOP, THAT LET’S MUSGRAVE BE THE LEADER. HE’LL GET FIVE BONUS POINTS. BONUS POINTS HAVE BEEN SO IMPORTANT THIS YEAR. THAT’S WHY TODD HAS BEEN DOING SO WELL ALL SEASON LONG. HE SCORED THE MOST BOP NEWS POINTS THROUGHOUT THE SEASON. AS BODINERINGS HIS LUMBER LIQUIDATEORS VEHICLE TO US, NEXT TIME MUSGRAVE WOULD COME. WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT? SGRAVE LEADS. THEY BOTH WERE PLANNING ON PITTING. WORKS OUT FOR BO OF THEM. THE CREW GOES TO WORK ON TODD’S TRUCK HERE. RIT SIDE TIRES. WE’LL COP — COME TO THE CONCLUSION. THEY WEREN’T BLUFFING. THE JACKMAN FALLS DOWN A LITTLE BIT. IT WON’T BE A BIG DEAL. CHANGING TIRES IS MIKE HILLMAN JR. BODINE WILL GET OUT OF HERE WITHOUT A PROBM. NEXT TIME AROUND, EXPECT TO SEE MUSGRAVE>>MUSGRAVE IS ON PIT ROAD. HE GOT THE FIVE BONUS POINTS FOR LEAVING T WON’T BE A BILLING PENALTY — BIG PENT BECAUSE THERE WERE ONLY THREE TRUCKS THAT PITD SO H WILL ONLY GO BEHIND THE 10 OF TERRY COOK AND MAYBE THE ONE OF RICHARDSON BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONLY TRUCKS IN ADDITION TO BODINE WHO PITTED TT TIME. HERE COMES TED MUSGRAVE DOWN PIT ROAD.>>NUFIA USUALLY CHANGES THE TIRES HE BUT HE’S AWAY F AT FUNERAL SO THEY MOVED DONNELLON OVER TO DO THE TIRES. HE NORMALLY WORKS OP BODINE’S CREW. A LITTLE BIT OF A CREW SHUFFLE. EVERYTHING SMOOTH. THE JACK STARTS TO DROP DOWN LITTLE BIT. TH’LL GET THE JACK BACK UP. THEY’LL GET THE TIRES ON. THIS WON’T BE A BIG DEAL.

I’M AD YOU BROUGHT THAT UP. I DON’T THINK ANY TEAM DOES THAT.>>HEY, LOOK AT THIS. I USED TO HAVE A DOG NAMED LUCKY. HE WAS ONE OF MY FAVORIT. KELLY SUTSON GETS THE LUCKY DOG.>>AARON’S LUCKY DOG GOES TO — GOING TO KELLY SUTTON. RON HORNADAY HAS STOPPED. HE DOESN’T HAVE TO STOP AGAIN. CAN HE HOLD OFF THE FIELD AND WIN IN MANCE FEEMD? — MANSFIELD?>>TED MUSGRAVE AND TODD BODINE ARE SO FAR BACK RIGHT NOW. WE HAVE 140 LAPS. A LOT OF THOSE LAPS MORE THAN LIKELY WILL BE RUN UNDER CAUTION. I’M NOT SURE THEY HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO GET ALL THEWAY BACK TO THE FRONTMENT I’M NOT SURE I LIKE THIS STRATEGY. I AGREE WITH YOU. I DON’T THINK THE STRATEGY WAS A RIGHT DECISION BECAUSE OF THAT REASON KNOWING THAT THIS IS GOING 140 LAPS. 13 OR 14 CAUTIONS.>>HOW ABOUT BILL LESTER RUNNING SECOND. YOU TALK ABOUT 102 CONSECUTIVE STOPS FOR BIG BILL LESTER. THATNDED LAST WEEK IN CHARLOTTE WHERE HE DID THE D NOT QUALIFY TO MAKE THAT SHOWING NOW RUNNING SECOND.>>A GREAT DECISION ON THEIR PART PITTING EARLY GETTING THAT TRUCK IN POSITION.

IT COULD BE A BATTLE.>>I THINK YOU’RE RIGHT, RICKMENT IT WILL BE FOUR-ON-ONE SEE IF SPRAGUE AND HORNADAY CAN BATTLE. I WAS LOOKING AT SHORT TRACK PLANS. HOW ABOUT HORNADAY WITH 3,605 LAPS LED ON SHORT TRACK. BIN HAS BEEN — BODINE HAS BEEN ON THE TRACK ALL DAY LONG. HORNADAY CERTAINLY THE MASTER WHEN IT COMES TO LITTL TRACKS.>>FIRST TIME RON HORNADAY HAS LED SINCE LOUDON A YEAR AGO. SO, IT IS RON HORNADAY IN FRONT OF THE FIELD.
