On a nice Saturday Afternoon the Nationwide Series is back to the Monster Mile for 200 laps of action packed racing. Ryan Truex won the poll for the race in qualifying that happened a few hours ago.
Elliott Sadler stated the he does not how this tire lays down rubber.
After the race started it was caution time early on lap 4 as Tim Andrews Smacked the wall. After the green flag dropped Joey Logano was back leading laps. Then at lap 27 Ricky Stenhouse Jr. spins out and crashes for the next caution. He was second place at the time.
"Driver made a mistake," said Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on the wreck.
We only had a short green flag run this time with Joey leading more laps and then at lap 41 it was the competition caution for all the rain that fell last night. The leaders pit and Justin Allgaier taking no tires wins the race off pit road. After the green flag dropped Joey Logano quickly got the lead back and this time we got the first long green flag run of the day. At lap 94 Ricky Stenhouse Jr. came out on the racetrack over 60 laps down to the leader.
As the green flag racing continued Joey kept on leading the race and the green flag pit stops started at lap 116. Joey Logano finally pitted at lap 122. The next the caution came out as Timmy Hill winds up getting loose and spins out. Sam Hornish Jr. wound up getting some big damage from this incident.
After the green flag dropped it was a short green flag run and Sam Hornsih Jr. hits the Danica Patrick car which gets her loose and then whacks the Brad Sweet car on lap 133. Then it was more time in the lead for Joey Logano, but Ryan Truex started to get hot and chase him down.
With 50 laps left the next caution though came out as Joey Logano barely touches Tim Bainey Jr. and then Tim spins out and wrecks. Joey Logano and a couple other cars pit and Joey restarted the race inb seventh. After the green flag dropped it was time for Ryan Truex to lead a bunch of laps. With 25 laps Joey Logano was in fourth place, but catching up to Joey.
With six laps Ryan got into some bad traffic that caused Joey Logano to catch up so much he was able to take the lead of the race and then the win of the race.
Adam Stevens, the crew chief for Joey Logano, stated that he though more cars would come down pit road.
"They gave me one heck of a Dollar General Car," said Joey Logano. "Excited about this win."
"Good day for Joe Gibbs Racing," Said Ryan Truex. "I'll get one eventually." He also stated that if he did not catch the lapped traffic that he would have won the race.
"We had a strong car," said Justin Allgaier.
