Harvick with work to do.  Penalized for a tire over the wall on a fuel-only stop.

Another one bites the dust traction compound.

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

I agree.  Thought he was gonna pull it off.

Hamlin, Blaney, Larson, Elliott are the four cars under the cut line.  Harvick was the first car above the line but with the way he's running away today any of those four cars likely have to win next week to advance.

Harvick punched his ticked to Homestead.  Tied with Stewart for 14th place on the all-time wins list.

Logano has a 20 point lead for the 4th position in the Playoffs.  Really looking like it could be the same four as last year.

In the ISM race from earlier this year, Kyle Busch dominated.  Blaney was 3rd and Hamlin was 5th.  If one of those two win this race, it could be a nail biter for the 4th spot.

Big move for Hamlin to take the lead and win Stage 1.  That currently puts Logano out of the Final 4, as they run right now.

And then there were 7.  Chase Elliott blows a tire from 3rd place and goes hard into the wall.  He needed a win to advance - Nascar weeps.

Logano is now out of it after falling back to 5th place, 3 positions behind Kyle Busch in 2nd.  Blaney is showing the speed to have a shot at winning his way in.  So far though, Hamlin looks to have the strongest car of the day. 

Gibbs could wind up with 3 out of the 4 drivers running for the Championship next week.  That stacks the odds heavily against Harvick.

Looks like Hamlin is going to advance.  I'm still holding out hope that there is a late caution that will allow Logano to get a shot at him.

Kyle Busch just became Hamlin's best friend after that restart.  He made Blaney race him instead of the 11.

well the cheating Penske team should have done like last year and had Kezlousy put another back marker into the wall bringing out the yellow that Nazicar was happy to throw and let Logano catch up to the leader for the eventual win and fake title.

Friday practices rained out, a session was added yesterday.  Kyle, Truex, and Hamlin were the fastest 3 - Harvick was 9th.

Truex's team spent an extra week prepping a car for this race due to winning the first race in the last playoff round.  Gibbs overall has to have more data to use since 3 of their drivers were good enough to get this far.

The 4 team trimmed their car out again.  Running a different downforce setup than the Gibbs cars.

"We interrupt these commercials to bring you a race."  The last several times I've flipped over from football it has been advertisements.  Hope they're just getting them all out of the way early. 

Fun race so far, the four that matter are all up front-ish.

That's the way it should be, IMO.  I want to see the rest of the cars racing for the win too, but don't want to see those cars getting in the way of the championship contenders if they are just racing for position.

Early on looks like it's Truex's race to lose.  Cole Pearn rarely makes the wrong adjustments during the race.

Harvick's team trimming the car out should hopefully become a major factor as the track cools towards the end.

Cole Pearn may not have done it, but the 19's pit crew flip-flopped the right front and right left tires.  Another stop under green for a fresh set of tires - huge mistake but he may only be one lap down.

Surely the tires must've been placed in the wrong stack?

Don't know but Kyle has already made up half the distance to Harvick who still hasn't pitted. 

At this point it's hard to say anyone besides Kyle Busch is the favorite, unless this pit strategy somehow pays off for the 4 team.
