Kinda disappointed by the fewer one-offs, and fewer trucks overall. Still a few big names in there to make it interesting, though. Any idea why Norm is in the 6?

Kinda wish Kyle Busch wold have put Bloomquist in the #51 like last year, cool to see WoO stars taking on NASCAR ; dirt style. BTW, do you know if the bigger teams are running the new trucks? I know that the big teams run them on most tracks, but Eldora is a new challenge...

Sorry bout that Cooper. Should never have posted a rushed post like that.

Anyways, still baffled about Micheal Annett on the entry list.  Neutral

MY BODY IS READY!!!!!!

EDIT: It really sucks that Rick Allen will call his last race for FOX. IMO, I think he's a good announcer. At least we'll hear him on the NBC crew next season.

Why are they setting off fireworks after each heat?

Because Explosives.

Also, is anyone else finding the #0's repeated spins that seem to only occur when the 10 is falling back suspicious?

No way shape or form. It does run in the Cobb family when they suck so bad.

Norm Benning and Michael Annett made themselves look like heroes qualifying for the feature.

How does Annett look like a hero from that? He's running with NTS, who seem to be doing quite fine with their two (or three?) trucks. It's not a huge surprise that Annett made it.

Looks like Larson moved down after hitting the wall. It's a racing deal IMO.

EDIT: Larson is wheeling it tonight.

That's what I saw too. People on my Facebook feed saying that it was bad karma for Dillon don't know what they're talking about.

Really good race so far. The battles for position up front have been ridiculous and these guys have been knocking down the walls all night. I also have to credit that pass by Tyler Reddick -- disposed of three trucks in one fell swoop.

Larson might be wheeling it, but how many more hits can his truck take?

Kyle Larson! Hell of a wheelman! He was 100% going for that, but he killed the truck by the end, sadly.

Happy for Bubba! Another fantastic driver who deserved that win.

Larson finally did his truck in with two to go; I was waiting for that to happen. I was hoping that he might be able to catch Wallace at the end there, but you can only take so many trips to the wall. And if he had won with a completely battered right side, I bet the victory lane ceremonies would've been interesting. Razz

Awesome, awesome race. Good win, Darrell Wallace, Jr..

That was a good race. I'm surprised Kyle Larson still had a shot at winning the race knowing how much he was tearing up that truck. Also, how about Ken Schrader getting a 4th place finish?

Larson's truck was like a Rolex - it took a licking, and kept on ticking, until it took one too many lickings.

Awesome job Bubba!

I can't blame Larson for trying, it seemed like hitting the wall was giving him a good run.

Awesome race once again. Larson was hitting the wall like it was his girlfriend, Like i think it was quite literally 20-40 times and it eventually bit him in the ass, absolute great effort though

Awesome job to Bubba for holding the hard charging Larson off, He beat him the non-contact way!

Good race overall. KBM are the team to beat this season. 8 out of 10 races. And Bubba Wallace won.

I think most of us either missed this, or haven't thought of this yet, but in theory, John Wes Townley won a NASCAR race yesterday. Even if it was the LCQ!

It means more to get that final transfer spot rather than the actual LCQ win. Case in point did you know Brennan Newberry won the LCQ last year.
