Btw, it's amazing to look at Dale's 2000 car on the track and then look at the current cars.

I love hearing the cars run but I kinda wish someone in the production trailer would turn the commentator volume up a bit.  They played a bit of in-car audio and I couldn't understand any of it.

Bad luck for Blaney.  Basically needed to win to advance in the Playoff, and spun getting to pit road.  No damage and it's still Stage 1, so he has time to recover.

Chase Elliott ignoring the Chevy-sticks-together direction right now.  He got 0 points in Stage 1 and is trying to hold the lead for Stage 2.

Big one!  Bowman tried to block Logano and lost with 3 laps to go in Stage 2.  Logano had a huge, huge run on Bowman and couldn’t back off.  Wasn’t much of a block but both cars were in the same groove.

Bowman, Truex, Johnson, Larson, Harvick, Elliott (who was 7 points under the cutoff line), Kurt Busch.... still counting cars.

Not sure how much damage the 4 car got but he did go spinning.

Someone pushed the car behind Kurt into Kurt, who got pushed into the 24 car, who got hooked into the 22 car of Logano.  More cars damaged, but Stenhouse was in front of it.

Byron, Logano, Erik Jones.... they went to commercial before showing the rest of the damaged cars.

7 to go and another big one running 3-wide at the front.  Looked like Kurt bumped Kyle and turned him up.  Kyle was in the middle lane and leading.  Kes got bad damage, Brendan Gaughan was upside down at one point. 

Stenhouse got a little damage.  Harvick got some, as well as Dibenedetto, Buescher, Hemric, Reagan.... Interesting stat - all of the Playoff drivers have now been involved in some sort of incident today.

Burton and Dale discussing whether or not aggressive side drafting by Stenhouse may have pushed Kyle across the nose of Kurt behind him.  Still.....no contact between the 17 and 18 cars.

Race red flagged.  The Chevys are so bad at pushing because of the pointed noses.  Wonder if NASCAR tells them to change that design next year.

LOL.  Keselowski fired the motor up - with a hole in the oil reservoir and no oil available - and drove off pit road until the car died.  Just by leaving pit road they passed Gaughan and Kurt Busch to pick up 2 more positions and those points. 

Everything helps with next week being the next cutoff.

Photo finish.  Newman came out of nowhere on the final lap with a great push by Hamlin. 

Blaney gets the win by inches, and solidifies his position in the next round.  Just like that he went from the bottom of the Playoff standings to a guaranteed spot in the Round of 8.

It was surprising.  He was more aggressive than usual but he was throwing blocks earlier when he had room to move.  I guess he figured he might as well let it all hang out since it's his last run in this race for the foreseeable future but yeah, he and his spotter did a great job of controlling the field.

The early feel good story for Kansas.  Preece went to the track early with his crew to help make preparations after the hauler caught fire on the way.  They converted the 37's backup car to their primary ride for the race yesterday.

"ďI came in with them this morning at 7 (a.m. CT),Ē Preece said. ďI think weíre in this as a team, and I wasnít just going to show up later in the afternoon to just show up and drive. I wanted them to know Iím right there with them. Ö I know some of these guys havenít had much sleep, so Iím pretty proud of them.Ē

Caution with 14 to go.  Elliott needs to move up but he also needs Kes to stay in his current position in the running order.

Chase Elliott doesnít needs his tiebreaker over Keselowski.  As they run right now with a GWC looming, Chase has a 2-point advantage.

The 2 car picked up several spots on pit road under caution, and now has a 1-point lead again for the final spot in the next round.

Right now Chase in in 2nd place.... needs a win to advance.  Hamlin in 1st place only took 2 tires on their last pit stop.

This counting points is more fun than the high-speed left turns.

GWC 1 - Kyle did what he does, pushed Hamlin to the lead, and took 2nd place from Chase Elliot. 

Caution came out before the leader took the white flag.  Weíre gonna do it again.

Logano got damage in the caution - now heís 3 points above the cut line.  Kes is 4 above.

Chase didnít get the win but Keselowski lost so many spots on the restart that he fell below the cut line. 

Advancing to the next round are:

1. Hamlin
2. Larson
3. Blaney
4. Truex
5. Kyle
6. Harvick
7. Logano
8. Elliott

Was hoping Brad would have been able to hold his spots and move on instead of the 9.  Great to see the 18 back on track even if it didn't win.

Regular season bonus points should only count for the first round of the playoffs after that only points from each round should carry to the next round. Would make it a lot more interesting than knowing the top 3 are basically guaranteed a pass through the first 2 rounds.

Bad start for Chase Elliott - smacked the wall on lap 9.

The traction compound isn't very traction-y.

Nope nevermind that one was just a loose car.  Almost the save of the year by Jimmie.
