Tune in at 2:16 PM ET for coverage of the Hollywood Casino 400. Scott Johnson will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
What's going on everybody, and who is ready for some NASCAR racing? Scott Johnson here, for race #6 in the Chase. Repaved Kansas, let's get started!
@Retired Jarhead Welcome back RJ
Engines have been fired in Kansas
@Spoiler Nah, Jr. returns next week.
@Al Councilman Sunny, 74.
When we start: 5 55 15 18 43 39 48 20 11 29
@jean9 Other than Jr, I am not sure. Will have to calculate sometime today.
Race is 267 laps, 400.5 miles .. pit window 55-58 laps ... cars to rear 10, 31 engine changes.
Here we go, we're green in Kansas.
2/267 laps - Mark Martin leads the first lap, and is your race leader.
4/267 laps - Johnson and Bowyer battling for 8th place right now.
7/267 laps - Martin still leads. He's been fast on the short runs this weekend, but the key will be if he holds on for 20-30 laps.
7/267 laps - And as I say that, new race leader the 43 of Almirola
@Al Councilman 5th place right now.
@jean9 Started 19th, now 14th.
19/267 laps - Race leader Almirola reporting that he's a little loose.
@Dan Cole Not sure, I only do the liveblog, don't handle that side of it.
@48fan Dropped 3 spots since the start, we'll see though.
23/267 laps - 43 55 18 39 11
