What's going on everyone, Scott Johnson here liveblogging the Quaker State 400. Engines have been fired, we're ready to go racing shortly.
@Ashley If he's doing well, sure. If he's not, then I can't.
@tater Brutal last year. Looked a little bit better today.
Your Top 10 tonight on the starting grid: Johnson, KyBusch, Hamlin, Harvick, Newman, Bowyer, Jr, Keselowki, Gordon, Truex Jr.
@Man of Steele 10-4 good buddy, which ball game.. MLB?
@Man of Steele Sounds good, have fun!
1/267 laps - Kyle Busch passes Jimmie Johnson and is your race leader.
3/267 laps - Take it for what it's worth, but it looked like Kyle beat Johnson to the line.
5/267 laps - Keselowski battling Newman for 4th spot, and he gets the position.
@Doug Wind has reduced a ton, it's only 5-10 mph right now.
10/267 laps - Kyle Busch continues to be your race leader, but Brad Keselowski puts up the fastest lap.
16/267 laps - Hamlin is right behind Kyle Busch now, looking to take the lead.
16/267 laps - Gordon has dropped down to 15th after starting 9th. Reporting his car is plowing the splitter.
17/267 laps - Gordon now passes Kenseth for 14th position.
@Man of Steele 14th and 7th, respectively.
19/267 laps - Attendance tonight? Not sure, but stands are about 60% full after the huge mess-up last year w/ parking and whatnot.
21/267 laps - Kyle has a 0.3 second lead over Hamlin, but Keselowski is still putting up the quickest laps on the track.
Harvick (11th) tells his crew chief "I ain't Clint Bowyer. Way too tight!"
24/267 laps - Dale Jr. is reporting that his car is sliding to the right rear a little bit.
@jean9 Not that great, he was running 34th last time I checked.
25/267 laps - Logano is reporting that he has no cooling unit. Not good especially on this hot day.
28/267 laps - Keselowski passes Hamlin for 2nd place, he's coming after Kyle Busch now. Kes is a second back.
29/267 laps - Early pit stop for Tony Stewart, he is having ignition problems.
29/267 laps - Stewarts car is not even starting. He is on pit road and will now go a couple laps down.
@jean9 Hamlin and Kyle are running well though.... for now.
33/267 laps - Keselowski again running 0.10 of a second faster laps than Kyle.
34/267 laps - Stewart's engine is dead... that could be it for him tonight. It might be a throttle body issue. They're resetting it with a computer.
35/267 laps - New race leader, Brad Keselowski.
