Xfinity race Stage 1 was a snoozer, the top 12 or so finished single-file.

Much better end to Stage 2

Wow, rookie Justin Haley had it stolen from Elliot Sadler and Kyle Larson.  Almost....

Haley dipped under the yellow I guess since he thought Sadler was coming down on him (after he had established his position), and Nascar took the win away saying that he went below the line to advance his position.

There was room, he didn't need to go under the line to win it, but the wording in the rule book is what it is.  Oh well, an actual Xfinity driver winning is a much more exciting idea to me than Larson taking it.

If Kyle Busch is going to win tonight, I hope Larson finishes 2nd to him again.  Something about this place at night brings out the wildness.

At least it feels right listening to Dale Jr. talk about how to win here.

Well one of my fantasy drivers ( the 17) started the wreck and took out my other 4 !!!

Good thing I hate the fantasy setup on NASCAR.com and don't really care to play

Big One #1 took out all of Penske.

Elliot, Kurt, Hamlin, Suarez, Johnson, Wallace.....forget it, too many cars to name got serious damage in that one.  The count is 20 cars damaged.  Not even halfway through the second stage. 

Stenhouse apparently didn't know that it's not wise to push and turn at the same time.  Spun Kes (running 2nd) right around into Kurt (running 3rd).  Not fair that Stenhouse's dumb ass is still driving.  There are drivers in the Xfinity series that are working hard for a ride in the Monster series, and meanwhile Stenhouse is still driving around in circles of mediocrity.

You have to be joking.  I wish Nascar would just tell Stenhouse to get TF off the track and go home. 

Kyle Busch, Byron (the 1st and 2nd place cars) just got taken out by Stenhouse. 

Several other cars taken out in that one.  Thankfully it wasn't worse that it turned out to be.

Kyle Busch is one of the most honest drivers in the game.  He straight-up dropped blame for both crashes on Stenhouse.

Yes!  The 42 went around and collected Stenhouse.  Way for Larson to take one for the team.

Great footage of Stenhouse attempting to side-draft and instead slamming into the side of Almirola.

Caution:  Dips*** Stenhouse spins on his own due to the flat tire he got from slamming into Almirola.

NBC dude lecturing Dale Jr. on how you want to skip fresh tires in favor of track position at this point in the race....

Lecturing Dale Jr....

The guy that’s won 17 races here.

I had a brain fart and forgot his name when I posted this.  'NBC dude' in this instance is Steve Letarte.

Oh man, right before Truex took the white flag.

Bowyer, Harvick, Bayne, Johnson, Chastain, Wallace, and more. 

Wallace was pushing Bowyer too hard.  Both drivers moving side to side too much.  At least this one happened with less than 2 to go - appropriate time to get aggressive.

I'm really shocked Nascar didn't wait a few more seconds for Truex to cross the line to throw the yellow and end the race.

I can't believe that Bowyer and Bayne couldn't push Harvick better on the last restart.  Yates engines looked only average against the Toyotas there.

Will there be 10 cars left to race

Looks like 13 lined up on the red flag.

3 ‘big ones’ in one race. Just rename it Crashtona. Craziest race there I can remember

Wow, Erik Jones took it from Kahne.  Great track to get your first win at.

It's a little cliche, but Jones really does have a great story.  Joe Gibbs was the perfect boss for him.

Pretty much. All the cars that crossed the finish line should get survivor t-shirts with that on it..

Keslowski took the blame for the 1st wreck because he lifted when Byron drove in front of him.  Brad said in his interview any rookies or unqualified drivers who try to throw a block too late at Dega can expect to get dumped as he won't lift next time.

Byron was already in front of him though.  He was doing what anyone else in the lead would have been doing - trying to stay there.  Brad is just upset that the newbie didn't get out of his way.
