The O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 is a NASCAR Xfinity Series stock car race that takes place at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. The race came about from the results of the Ferko lawsuit in 2004. With Darlington Raceway forced to forfeit its Southern 500 weekend as a result of the lawsuit, TMS gained a second weekend on the schedule for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series racing, and fifth race for the NASCAR Xfinity Series playoffs.

The 2008 race was won by Kyle Busch, breaking Kevin Harvick's string of three consecutive wins in this race.

Transcription

Outside of row one tonight. The last time the XFINITY series raced of course it ended in chaos and bedlam. I suspect more is in store tonight, just a little faster, but first opening ceremonies. Let's head track side now. We turn our attention to tonight's race. It is our prayer that you would grant safety and success to the drivers, teams and be with the fans and sponsors and be with us all in Jesus's name I pray, amen. >> He just released his first self-titled record. Here to perform the national anthem, please welcome Jake Worthington. [ Cheers and applause ] O say, can you see by the dawn's early light what so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? and the rockets' red glare the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? [ cheers and applause ] >> Let's hear it for Jake Worthington. >> Brad keselowski's baby girl scarlet is ready to race on FS1. We hope you are as well. Big names in the field tonight ready to do battle against the XFINITY series regulars. It's Friday night lights at Texas motor speedway live on FS1. We go green next. >>> This first night race of the season wilght up Texas as we get set for the green flag. Let let's meet tonight's guest driver. While growing up in Columbia, Missouri, Carl Edwards dreamed about becoming a race car driver. He wasn't afraid to let everyone know it. The former substitute high school teacher is a fitness fanatic. We all know he's good on TV but he's better behind the wheel. The 2008 XFINITY series champ also has 25 sprint cup series wins to his credit. Carl Edwards making his debut tonight. Michael Waltrip and Carl Alexander. We heard you were thinking about get ING in a quick shave before the race. >> It was a Gillette shave, it was good. You guys are building me up. I'm sure you will break me down later. It's an honor to be here. The track is fast. I'm excited to watch the XFINITY drivers. It will be interesting to see how it develops. >> What's the hardest part about the track? >> To me, the bumps. The XFINITY cars are in the throttle so much. So much mid corner speed. They will hit the bumps and hope the car handles to keep going in the right direction. >> Last couple of years have been outstanding. Two first time winners in the spring race. What do you think about that? >> It shows talented the young racers are. Jake el Elliot came in 2013. We didn't know how good he was. He outduelled Kevin Harvick and we knew he was special. Same thing last spring. Erik Jones battled hard against Brad keselowski and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Dale said I knew the kid was good. Now everybody knows how good he is. If you can handle the bumps and the speed, you can win anywhere. >> I'm thinking about this. We practiced during the day and race at night. How much will this change? >> I don't think anybody knows how much it will change. The key is managing your tires. Tonight it's how hard you want to grind on the tires. You will see Larson to the top. We'll see how they hang on. >> You mentioned the first time winners. Did you know four of the last nine races in Texas won by series regulars? If one gets the checkered flag tonight they are in the playoffs. It's great. >> Love the chase. >> A chase berth is on the line now. We are going track side for the command to fire engines. >> Ladies and gentlemen, here to give the command to fire engines for tonight's race, chuck Edwards. >> Drivers, start your engines. >> It is the first night race of the year. It's electric at Texas motor speedway. We are going from the driver's seat with the defending race winner next on FS1. >>> Back live at Texas motor speedway. Now the weather brought to you by golf Smith. 72 degrees. That will go down as the evening continues. One of the drivers trying to manage the elements, Erik Jones starting on the front row. From the driver's seat. >> This is Carl Edwards up in the FS1 booth. You won here a year ago. How confident are you that you can shock them and get the win. >> We have a good game. It will be the guy I believe we'll be racing tonight. We'll have a solid night. Should be exciting. >> There will be slipping and sliding all night. How do you decide to go out next to the wall. >> That's the fun of it. You get to move around so much here. This is slicker than it's been since I have been coming here. We moved around in practice. From the top to the bottom. You have to go where the car works best as the night goes on. >> You're making me happy. Slipping and sliding at 185 miles an hour. We'll keep an eye on you and check back in later. >> 10-4. Thank you, guys. >> A fun night in Texas. Just like our pit reporters. Let's hear from them before we go green. Chris Neville. >> Team penske haven't started as expected. They have yet to finish inside the top 5. A streak they haven't seen since 2012. Crew chief Nelson said we finally have speed before Ryan bla any got in the wall late. Keselowski put it in victory lane last fall. He hopes to break it tonight. >> At the last XFINITY race in California Austin Dillon didn't have the best car but he won the race. He knows it is a similar situation this weekend. He doesn't have the speed of the three Gibbs cars but they know the fastest car doesn't always win. That means there is a premium on handling. They have to have the best handling car if they have a shot at winning. >> Kyle Busch's disappointment and frustration over the last loss is mirrored by that of the crew chief and the team. They know this is the stretch of year, six straight races with Kyle in the car. Their chance to make history and magic. Like rebooting the computer they have rebooted coming here to Texas motor speedway. Won here seven times on the pole. They know he usually sells winning 51% of the time. The rrn is speed as laps wind down. >> Just about every record here. Wins, poles, laps LED. Top twos and starting up here tonight. Aerialle coverage from good year. Superior tires to face challenging conditions on the track and the road. Goodyear, the official tire of Naser ka. >> How about 185 miles per hour slipping and sliding on goodyears? Those things are tough. >> Trying to manage the tires, sliding around. The car slides more the more you go. >> Looking at the race analysis. 54 to 58 laps is big. The last five races in Texas, a cycle of green flag pit stops. >> How soon before you are screaming for tires? >> If you get a green flag stop for me it was getting onto pit road. You have to watch. Very easy to miss that entry. >> We all agree Kyle Busch is the favorite. Kyle Larson starting 4th. >> Go get him tonight. >> Sounds good. Even keel. Just go out there. How about that? >> That will work. >> You drivers have a lot of fun. >> I like watching Larson race. He's not affrayed to put it on the wall and wheel it. >> Daniel Suarez has been so close to victory lane. >> He could be next. >> I didn't realize until last year when he got the win. Then he ran with us a little bit. Even with the limited experience they have in the stock cars they are super drivers. >> Talk about the opportunity for the first career win. Darrell Wallace, Jr., was so strong a year ago. >> Starting back in the 23rd spot. He could run through this and get a victory. >> A dynamic race it could be the fist victory tonight. >> The drivers are amped up and ready to go. It's time to get down to business. Put the green flag in the air. Let's go racing at Texas. >> You can see Kyle Busch spun his tires on the start. Looked like that would be an advantage for Jones. He got a push from Larson. Can they get up the side? >> You saw Busch push away. He has the front lane. Definitely blocking. Preece. >> Turn two. >> Doesn't look like he hit anything too hard. >> Every race this year we have had a caution within the first ten laps T. Trend continues. >> Looks like the 01 car on the inside. He spins side wie waist. Carl, you know this. We have to watch the cars. They get very loose when they are racing side by side in the corners. >> That's the first time he's run in a group like this. Conditions are different. He did a really good job staying in the throttle. He got it locked down. Didn't have anyone else in the wreck. >> It can get away from you in a hurry. >> Just when we get up to speed, they are slowed gone. Caution out early at Texas motor speedway. >> I'm a Detroit tigers fan. >> The Texas rangers obviously. >> I was a philly fanatic as a kid. >> I don't know who will go all the way in the world series. >> Go big blue. >> I hate to say it. I don't want to jinx them. The Chicago cubs will win the world series. >> I think Sadler had anxiety over that answer. >> He struggled with that. >> The Atlanta braves. >> Carl? >> Ned is the man. He loves racing. We hung out last year. >> I know what Gaughan is doing tomorrow. Watching the dodgers and giants on FS1. Stream it at Fox Sports go. >> Big blue, as he said. >> We got the first caution cleaned up. Preece didn't hit anything which is positive. Now we are set for the first restart of the night. Four laps in. >> Preece had a good car in practice. When you're anxious to get going. These things slip out in a hurry. >> He came out okay. He did a good job. >> His heart rate comes back down. He'll probably do better. He got a second chance tonight. >> We saw Busch spin his tires. He maintained the lead. I wonder if Jones learned anything and can take advantage. >> Sometime it is bottom group has more grip here. It gets warn up by the wall. >> Once again Kyle Busch, Erik Jones on the front row. Suarez, Larson behind him. We complete our fourth lap. >> Kyle got a great jump again. Larson pushing Erik again. >> That looked like a replay of the first start. For Ryan Preece's sake I hope it ends on the get-go. >> Jones not messing around. The lane looks good. >> He has to be careful. Erik gave him room. As he goes around the corner. Realizes he's going to be on the door. Down the straight away and try to pull ahead . Here at Texas motor speed it is way. >> They are running together up front. >> What's happening is the cars are locked into battle. One guy gets ahead. The other a little bit. He pulls up ahead of Larson. Put the Joe Gibbs racing cars one, two, three. >> One, two, three on track. >> The Joe Gibbs show tonight. >> Right now is a good time to be driving a Joe Gibbs Toyota in Naser ka. They are fast. The guys have been working hard.car. They are fast. The guys have been working hard. Kyle Larson. >> I was taunging to the team. They said we have a top three cars. There are three Joe Gibbs racing cars. We know how strong they are. He plans to get up there and bust up the domination. >> You have to have confidence. Like we talked about the track, so much will happen. There is an opportunity for penalties. Managing your tires. Nobody has run at night. Who knows what will happen? >> I'm interest interested to watch chase Elliot in the 5. He didn't qualify well. On the longer run he seemed to have more speed. Less fall off than the competition. >> Brennan Gaughan appears to be racing. Sadler wants a piece of the action. The 1 machine to the inside. The driver that won in 2004 in the sprint cup series working his way into the top ten. >> You can see on the track. There are three distinct lanes. Most people would be running the bottom lane, fill it in with rubber as they look for clean pavement but it's pretty good. >> Doing a good job in the 39. >> His energy for the sport and the run up into the top 12, top 10. He'll be a story before the year is over. >> Junior motor sports cars struggled yesterday in practice. Not great in qualifying this afternoon. But chase Elliot on the move early. Plus seven tonight. >> In practice yesterday. It was a little too tight. Saying something was wrong with the carburetor. He took a look. Thought they may have cooled the engine a little bit too much. >> On board with the team car. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. >> Regarding the drivers starting to move around on the track. El Elliot took advantage of that. >> All clear. Still good. Still clear. All good. >> You never know when you dive under someone. You're waiting for the all clear. Austin Dillon tried the high line. It mightle take too long. He'll get going. >> How does the all clear sound in your ear? >> Nice. What happens here, the spotter is so important. When you're driving sideways, fighting the car. You really can't look in the mirror as much as you like T. Spotter is important here. >> This is Texas. That's what impresses me about the 5 of Elliot. >> He's making that work. >> All clear. >> Catching him on top. He wasn't able to clear. We'll see. >> It was a great car in practice. >> Still inside. >> That was his spotter talking about chase Elliot still down there. Nice job up on top. Maybe he'll learn something here. A young kid. Finds traction up there. You start to develop a rhythm. >> When somebody comes and catches you by running a different place you have to try it. >> Gaughan continuing to work his way toward the top ten. Hard to believe the driver out of Las Vegas has never been in the top 10 here in the XFINITY series. Right behind him Dale jr.'s first career win in 1998. 13th now. >> Tight, tight, tight. >> Real good. Not tight at all entering. Real tight exit. >> 10-4. We'll get you freed up the first stop. >> Sounds like he's tight, carle. >> He might be tight. He's moving up. It is a bigger circle. He might be able to make that work in a different spot on the racetrack. >> Chief Dave Allen will be working hard tonight. >> It's interesting here. So often we see him rim riding around the top. Junior said he's cautious how the tires might handle running the top. Don't look for junior to be rim riding especially early in the race. They want to see what the tires look like after the first run. >> Got to be pleased with how his teammates are doing. S chase Elliot and Justin Allgaier. Started 23. Worked his way to 13. Just went around the boss man on track. Everybody trying to run downle Kyle Busch. Started on the pole. LED 15 of 16 laps going for career win number 80. >>> 20 laps complete here at Texas. Kyle Busch, Erik Jones, Dillon and Larson the top five. Brad keselowski. We look at the performance track facts. Roush Fenway won three of the first four Texas races. Including the fist in 1997. A Ford has won a Texas race in five of the last six seasons. You won twice here in the XFINITY series. >> Yep. Lots of fun. Had a good time. >> Who won the first XFINITY race here. >> Jeff Burton. >> Thank you for the text . >> I have a myspace page. >> He's technical. He's working on it. >> My page could pay dividends for you. >> I will try to quantify how it works for the first couple of months. >> You saw the advantage for Kyle Busch over second place Erik Jones. We work our way back to third place Daniel Suarez. Just passing the start-finish line. >> He's got company too there. >> Not going to be third for long. Larson and Dillon. >> If you were going to hashtag this first 25 laps, loses the position. The car is extremely loose on entry. It does swing to the tight side on exit. He can see it on top. They are formulating a game plan. Trying to fix the balance now. Trying to hold on to the top five spot. >> That 22 car of Brad keselowski . I really like the way the car is running. I wonder if he's happy with it. >> When we get to the last car. I don't have to tell him what's going on. >> Crew chief. >> Paul wolf says he doesn't need to. He can see what the car is doing. That's cool. He's a good race car driver. >> He's making a move on Suarez now. >> Trying to get around on the inside there. His crew chief said they are a little bit too loose on entry. They are trying to work up. He said there is no grip up there now. On the first pit he needs more security entering one and three. >> For Daniel Suarez when the car is loose going in you go 180 miles an hour on the entry. When it's loose it screws up everything. You get down to the cornerer. Over correct. Miss the line. He'll pick up a lot of speed. >> Sadler has been impressive early el. He drives around Poole up on the outside. Sadler isn't afraid to put it up against the wall. >> We talk about Daniel Suarez who comes in with a championship lead right behind him is Elliot Sadler. When you talk about those drivers the model of consistency. The 1 and the 19. >> The 19 will need an adjustment to continue that. Falling back a little bit here. This car has an impressive. Up into the third spot Dillon. Able to hold off Larson. >> He didn't get the run he wanted in California. The two weeks off was long for the team. They have answered the bell. On the podium now. Tomorrow we have a big one. Monster energy super cross on FS1. Back in Indianapolis. Er remember when we were in Atlanta Ty was part of the deal. He'll be watching tomorrow. >> It was unbelievable. >> Clint knew how to go for the cup and I wouldn't know how. >> He'll get a win soon. He's a great guy, a really cool guy. I hope his luck turns around and he gets a win. >> Ryan dugy won 6 of 12 so far. Now we are starting to put laps on the board. Larry Mcreynolds, what do you think on strategy? >> We are coming up on lap 30. We know if the caution waves we'll see everybody on pit road for tires. No one made a run close as far as the practice session. This is where we are starting to see comers and Goers. Seeing Ty Dillon, chase Elliot. Allgaier. On the flip side we are see ING drivers like Daniel Suarez and Austin Dillon. This is where the handling issues are starting to rear their head. >> For Larry Mac this is Carl up here in the booth. What do you expect the track to do? Tighter, looser? What do you think? >> We were talking about it the other day. The old conventional wisdom was when it cools down the car gets tight. When the sun comes out, heats up it gets loose. I have heard a lot of drivers and crew chiefs tell me with the way the set-ups are the cars almost start to get freer into the nighttime. >> Freer and faster sounds like a good combination. >> That's great. >> I don't know what mine will do. This is good for me. >> We thought Erik Jones might get around Kyle Busch. Didn't work out. Some 20 laps later they are six seconds back of the race leader. >> He's thinking, Kyle, come on back here. Let's race a little bit. >> They are falling back further. The issue is tires. Erik said he has no feel in the car. Feels completely out of the track. The tires feel done. >> I think everybody wants a pit stop, right? We are at that stage of the night. >> How much can you change a car with air pressure. >> Kyle Busch, Erik Jones and Ty Dillon, the top three. >> The junior motor sports cars are impressive on the long run. We saw it in practice. Thought they had the speed to do good once you get 10, 15 laps on the tires. Something I'm curious about is they give up time on the start. How do you take advantage of that? >> It has to be something you do as a driver. Look for a different line on the restart. Or adjust the car so you get the best of both worlds. Watch chase Elliot running higher. You pointed it out in the greek break, Allgaier is one of the fastest on the track. The cars are good. >> Yeah. Fast laps last time back. Allgaier ran down to a 31.78. He has company coming. You can tell he knows it. Watch the moves he's making. >> He's got to make a decision here. >> I don't think I could squeeze in there. He's up front enough he ought to know how to handle the traffic. >> Chastain gave him room. That was nice. >> Only 19 cars on the lead lap now. The 18 is fast. >> Kyle Busch now talking to his team. He wants to make more of a significant change. No sprint anywhere to what Kyle is saying with the 18 car. He still has an eight-second lead at this point. Now he's riding to the first stop. >> He wants to keep the lead if he has trouble on pit road. A lot can happen. >> The lap count, 41. It won't be long before they are coming down pit road under green. We'll have it when we continue live from Texas. >>> Second caution of the night here in Texas. Poole went into the wall. First, pit stops. Off turn four. We are 44 laps in. You know they will all make a presence on pit road here. Chris. >> Chase Neville has a good car. He said the car was loose out there. The team making adjustments. Also a track bar adjustment. >> Erik Jones said it is frustrating. It is tight everywhere. It's free. But what you can do with it, it will be an air pressure adjustment and four tires. >> Ty Dillon had trouble getting the car to cut. He backed off the corner. It was freer. Meanwhile Kyle Busch has a sprint cup team pitting. He said if you can fix it on the long run like we talked, nobody can touch it. >> The race off pit road . The top three and let's see what happened to the 48 of Poole bringing out the caution. >> We watched him go down the back straight away. You can see the tire come apart. >> Yes. >> Listen. >> Chad Norris the crew chief. They probably ran over something. >> Tenth when he hit the wall. >>> I love restarts. >> The place is hard to pass at. >> You're bunched up. >> Try to be aggressive. >> As long as you can find the lane. You have to be smooth. Don't miss shifts. Watch me on restarts. I like to have fun. He was the master here. Won basically every time. >> You get a sense of how things are going. He can tell you about himself and everybody else. In 2002. 2002 and 2003. We'll watch on the restart. He likes to have fun. When they are bunched up I know you know the importance of it. You have to go. >> The restarts, especially at the big tracks. What happens is the first lap or so is like daytona. You are drafting, trying to get the advantage. It's fun. >> Do you work out with ufc fighter? >> A couple midwest fight league guys let me roll around with them. >> Any truth to the rumor if you weren't a NASCAR fighter you would have been a ufc fighter? >> One submission tournament. It was the most difficult thing. When they close the door they are serious. A lot goes into it. >> Were you submitted? >> I wasn't. It went well. >> I thought about it a couple of times. >> Talking about the restart. Ready for another. 48 on the board. Great pit stop for Allgaier. He was fast on the track. The team got him a couple of spots in the fourth position. Conversely chase Elliot fell back a few spots. See if Allgaier can take advantage of that. He's the only car early in the race that could match Busch's pace. >> In the end he was just as fast as Kyle. It will be interesting to see how he does. >> Dillon around Jones on rethe restart. The 3 has been outstanding early. >> There is the junior motor sports car. Just behind him. >> Interesting to see if he got that loose condition fixed. >> Looks like Allgaier can close the door on Sadler. Jones back around Dillon. Everybody's got to make the adjustment. It makes a difference especially on the front running cars. They are going to get all out of them. If you make a slight change and it helps the car you can tell it in a hurry. You want to see what you have out there. Might be a different race car than you think. >> On the caution, free pass went to the 43 of Burton. I think I did it for the first time. The over-under puts Casey Kane. I think I just did it. Chase Elliot in the 5. >> Yes. >> I apologize to him. If Casey is watching, rest assured we know it's Elliot. >> I have been trying to do it all weekend long. >> A couple of things that jump out to me on the restart. The 5 # of chase el I do not and the 7 of Justin Allgaier. They can maintain. We talked about the long run speeds. The track position. They got up in the top 5. On the restart they are able to hold where they were. It bodes well for 20 laps for the guys. >> As we watch Kyle Busch he worried about it. Now the guys are in position. Let's hear what Matt says. >> A little bit of concern about the left side wear. When they took the tires off they looked great. They radioed back to Kyle. >> Kyle knows. Regardless of the eight-second lead the first run he knows they can tune their cars. They will be better on the long run. He will fix it. Hooking right around the bottom. That's the idea. If you have a fast car you can drive around the bottom. Easier on the tires. That's the shortest way around. That's where you want to go. >> Kyle is conscious of that. Let's hear what Dale Jr. Says about his car. >> The right front has some chunks. Probably 25% blistered to the inside. It was good. Not unusual for the first run on the tires. >> Yeah. >> Think back. You remember tight, tight. Dale Jr. Talked about how tight the car was. That will abuse the right front tire. They have to be careful with the tires. >> That's great input for the driver. Now Dale can be easier. Hoe know where is the limit is. You have 25% of the tire blistering that makes you nervous in the driver's seat . >> With the 17 out of the box has been so good. >> Justin Allgaier has been good tonight. Now running the top 6. Started 23rd tonight. I checked in after qualifying. He said we had a slow leak we didn't catch. It was a left rear tire. They didn't make it past round two. Boy, tonight they are back. He said if anything the car is a little bit free on entry. >> You just can't say enough about the junior motor sports cars tonight in race. Chase Elliot is fourth. Al fwier 6th. 7th for Sadler and Earnhardt Jr. Working his way inside the top ten again. He just lost 8th. Saw Daniel Suarez drive around him. >> Look at the car dance off the second corner. That wall jumps out at you. >> You have to be careful here. You drive off turn two it flattens out. >> This is junior's first time. Since Kentucky. There is a little bit of adjustment. They got things sorted out. The crew chief said they were happy with the way it was handling. They didn't have the speed they were going to need tonight. We are seeing it here. Interesting to see how it unfolds throughout the night. >> Watching these two go at it racing with a youngster from Joe Gibbs and Erik Jones tonight he and Daniel Suarez linked up. >> That won't surprise anyone. >> It was a tough pit stop. He's back in the 10 spot. They continue. Put Suarez ahead of junior. >> The two forwards from Roush Fenway. Ryan reed is in 12th. Let's get a report on keselowski. >> Seven spots in pit lane before that. The car loose on entry. Went from a 7 to a 10. When he came in, the team changed everything. Air pressure. A little bit slower than anticipated. The car feels pretty good. >> He was fast early. Such a great history here for Brad keselowski. Second in this race. Here in the fall. You know he can get it done in Texas. Erik Jones, Ty Dillon. Kyle Larson, your top five. >>> Welcome back. I promise you your television screen is not bigger than this one. It lights up the back stretch of Texas motor speedway. The largest video board. 79% larger than the board at AT&T stadium where the Dallas cowboys play. >> I have always said that the owner of the race trick, Eddie has run it since day one. There are followers and leaders. They are leaders. There is a prime example right there. >> I promise you from the day that was installed it was Adam Alexander's favorite part of the NASCAR circuit. We have all of the monitors. We, too can use it. >> Wondering what was on TV. >> Goes to something down the straight away. What's that? It's shocking. Pretty cool. >> I love it. >> We have company at the front. >> This car. This Erik Jones machine. He's gotten there. Now you have to mix it up. Find him a new line. You can see we talked about that. Now he's moving around. >> From the time spent with Erik Jones, my observation. He's good at running right on the edge . Erik Jones can run a car right on the edge and stay in the throttle and drive it loose and fast. >> And will not back down. >> Around Kyle Busch. >> Erik Jones. >> How about that? What a great move by Jones. >> That shows you how tough he is. >> Kyle LED 67 laps. Out front no more. >> Obviously give credit to the crew chief on that 20. Took a big swing on the last pit stop with air pressure. Tape on the grill. He said the car responded much better. >> Much better at the beginning of the run. Five laps. Jones closed in to make the pass. Kyle said the car started to pick up through the center. It was manageable. He was trying to move the line around, see if it would help. It didn't. >> Now that he moved up he's been able to close. The upper line was working for Kyle. Jones might have to move up as well. Kyle is making it work now. >> Everything Kyle is doing is working. He has to figure out how to make it bet er. You have to watch them battle for a while. >> They are so en er jet tick about the cars. They love the drivers. They know this is a great opportunity to get a set-up under a guy that can take it to the front. They appreciate the opportunity. >> Talked a lot about Justin Al fwier, how good he's been tonight. A lap down. What's the issue? >> We talk about him making the run from 23rd. Justin Allgaier radio Ed to the team, starting to feel a vibration. Getting progressively worse. He said I have to come to pit lane. They can see the left rear was loose. Al fwier falling back to 19. >> That was a veteran move early Y if race. Don't let it fall off, tear up the studs. That's a tough choice. You don't know if the tire spun or something. >> We saw him drive from 23rd. Going to need a break. They weren't overly confident. They did get a top ten finish. We'll see if he can bounce back tonight. Here are young guns going at it. Brandon Jones and the 33 inside of Darrell Wallace, Jr. >>. >> They were able to coax them to their side when they threw out the first pitch. >> Maybe he converted. >> That's fun. >> If you are a series regular and you win, you're in the chase. Jones came in as the favorite to win the title. He's out front here with Texas. 75 laps complete. The kid out of Michigan has LED 7 laps. >> They last pitted at 45. Here they are, Chris. >> Elliot's car got too tight. They will go back on the air pressure. Tape on the nose. >> Erik Jones pitting from the lead. He LED the last 11 laps. Changes on the previous stop for perfect. Jones said the car is good. Four tires on the 20. >> Ty Dillon said he was losing the forward drive off the corner before that caution. Air pressure change. Meanwhile Kyle Busch in the 18 saying he loses the entry. Then gets tight across the center and loses the exit. Overall he said I have a grip issue, lack of it. >> A good place to be coming off pit road. Kyle Busch get it is lead back. Jones falls to second. Plus two for Kyle Larson. Plus two for keselowski. Lost six on the last exchange. Let's see what happened with Suarez. You wonder if a tire was low there. >> Hard to say. Looks up right there. >> Let's hear what Matt has to say. The tire could have been low. Looked loose. >> Six laps before this. Daniel reported to the team that the car had once again -- remember, the first run it was loose. Same scenario on the second run. Started tight and swung big time to the free side. They will make a significant adjustment. You can see the wedge wrench in the back window tightening up the 19. >> As Jones approached from the rear he was almost close enough to loosen up a little bit more. >> He did a good job keeping it off the wall. >> Suarez scored 21st one lap down. >>> Tonight the XFINITY series. Sprint cup teams battling on fox. The coverage begins at 7:00 P.M. Eastern time. Edwards. >> Interesting glasses. >> Read my notes, see what's going on. Now I see a crazy competitive race. Kyle Busch was run town and passed. Jones to the back with a penalty. Too many men on the for Jones. >> Larson. Kyle Busch up front. >> You won't see that this early, will you. >> Getting momentum away as we went into turn one. >> Now chase Elliot will help. >> Three wide. Are you kidding me? Down inside of Ty Dillon. What an aggressive move. They are getting with it. >> Roush teammates not messing around. Right in front of him. They were side by side. Larson trying to pull away out front. >> This is a fight when everybody is close. The fight for position to get the clean air, the track position. He got adjustments he wants. We have seen Brad. He can tell them what he needs. There is a long way to go. >> Shows you how quickly. >> There is only one by the way, the penalty for Erik Jones over the wall too soon. >> What is it Larry says? Comers and Goers in the wrong direction. Ty Dillon. >> He got bunched up there. Got a little bit loose. >> They all know it. >> There was someone on the bottom. Hanging on. >> I know it sounds silly. That's a hard thing to do. Keep your composure. He did a good job hanging on. Able to battle later. Austin Dillon last time out. A few weeks ago. Scored in the 6th position. Now on board with Erik Jones. Let's go back, look at the penalty. He made the last stop. One guy was down. >> Before that. Better than one away. He got on the ground inside the red line. That's a penalty. >> They have been penalized in four of six race this is year. >> It's been a problem to start the season. Start at Atlanta for the win from the front row to the back. A penalty at Las Vegas. Ran out of fuel. Last race in California. It is a team that's hurt themselves. The crew chief told me before the race we have to make sure we don't do that tonight. Boom. Right away, a penalty. I hope the tire changer doesn't beat himself up. >> The car is 40, 50 miles per hour. He stepped over the wall a split second too soon. We wouldn't have seen that penalty in years past. With the new hawkeye system we zeroed in on it. >> The competition was between the 20 and the 18. They know each other. That gets tight. >> Good news though. This happens. They have driven back inside the top 15. Checking with Dale Earnhardt, Jr. A back and forth night for them. >> I don't know. For me for sure. >> That's fun. Dale, Jr., should be a happy owner. He sees his other cars running well. A good time to be a driver. >> You know he's never wanted his own car. Maybe he can work it out tonight. >> I didn't realize that. >> Feeling good. It's great when the crew chief can break against them. They can't fix the car. Good news for Dale. >> Jones up to the 12th spot. He drives around down on the bottom of the racetrack. Just an update. He ran the fastest lap of the race. The number 42 car was there. Only car in the race to run in the 28th. He got the lead, track position and took advantage of it. >> He knows what the car will be like. He knows he can go head to head now. Kyle has to work on the car. Make it faster. He'll watch that and study him. >> A couple of guys past Kyle Busch. Took a survey in the garage. One of the guys that could get it done tonight. >> LED 50 laps in the XFINITY series race. One of the turn arounds for the team in the XFINITY series. Six months ago they started building their own cars. It's been a difference makerer. In house, Larson drove back here. They LED be a bunch. Later took one of their own cars. [9:46:54 PM] They won the race with Kyle Larson. Definitely making strides. When they are building their own cars in house they can take things learned on the cup side and apply that or take the knowledge help ING the XFINITY series program. No changes on the last stop. >>. >> There was a tire issue. What does Larson think? Am I going to lose a tire? >> Everybody watches that. You talk to the crew chief. Have them look at it. Like we talked about with Dale, Jr., you gauge how hard you can run. >> It's a neat part of the sport. We have the opportunity. >> Larson has been out front under the lights for the first time in 2016. Daddy! You done yet? One last screw sweetie... And we're done! (Singing) Lil Sweet!

Superior performing tires to face challenging conditions on the track and the road. [9:50:58 PM] Goodyear, the official tire of NASCAR. Under caution for the fourth time tonight for debris. A reminder on this. Fox Sports is proud to team up with merge ING vets and players dedicated to ensuring the nation's warriors can be as productive off the field as they were on it by joining combat veterans with former athletes to form a common bond over dedication and team work. Visit Fox Sports supports.com to learn more. The reason for the caution is debris. We are at halfway. Last time they pitted 21 laps ago at 79. They have to manage the tires. Six sets for the race. Looks like everybody is thinking about coming here. >> This is what they get paid for. >> I have no clue what they will do. >> Free pass goes to Poole. Hit the wall earlier. He scored 19. Had the last free pass. >> 22 car. They were progressively getting better. The car loose on entry. Air pressure change. Chase elle I do not saying the balance is much better than before. Let's get air pressure. >> The 42 Kyle Larson comes in. Says the car has been consistent. Just four tires for the 42. >> Kyle Busch, they made the previous chassis adjustment. The car was tight from center to exit. >> Kyle Larson on the 42 team. Busch is second. Keselowski, Elliot and tail Earnhardt, Jr., picking up two spots. They are in the window to do it on one more pit stop. Everybody should have two sets of tires remaining for the race. [9:53:56 PM] He number one network in America. I know what you're thiining, they all claim stuff like that. Yeah, but some of them are stretching the truth a little bit. One claimed to be four times better. We said, four times better than who? They said, four times better than we used to be. Wh-wh-wha? If you're four times better than you used to be and you're still not the best, your tagline should be, "Not as rubbish as we were." (Sighs) Only Verizon is the nation's most awarded wireless network ever. Now get 20 Gigs on 4 lines for $80 when you switch to the best network. >>> Welcome back to Texas motor speedway. Just past halfway. We are under caution. Let's take a moment and review the 102 laps of action. Plenty of yellows. It's moving at a really nice pace. Great action. >> The only driver to pass Kyle Busch had a penalty for going over the wall too soon. >> We'll get there, sir. First we show you the Joe Gibbs racing car lining up one, two, three. Rally on the pole. Lap 44, Brennan Poole brings out the yellow. >> He had a right front tire going down. Running tenth when it happened. Hard contact for the outside wall. >> Jones on the outside of row one. Next to his teammate Kyle Busch. He won the race last year for the pole. [9:55:57 PM] He gets out front. But trouble for his teammate Daniel Suarez. >> This is on lap 77. Running tenth is not the right thing. Suarez. He goes, spins out. This was his teammate Erik Jones. The front tire changer went over the wall. This is the same system NASCAR is looking at. He went over the wall. They cannot go over until they are one pit away. Sadler on the last pit stop. You can see the uncontrolled tire there. The penalty for Sadler starts at the tail of the longest line. >> Problems in the pits. Up front it is the Kyle and Kyle show. We send it up to the booth boys. This is getting good. Cycled through pit stops everyone taking for tires. We'll see what they can do with fresh rubber. >> Getting the restart with 96 laps remaining. Past halfway. >> Remember what Kyle Larson did? See if the favor is returned. >> Larson squeezed way down on entry. >> Kyle doesn't forget that stuff. Larson has the push. He can clear them. >> That was a big push by keselowski. Gave Larson the advantage. Look at Dale, Jr., to the outside. Back in traffic. >> Elliot is there. Behind him, Erik Jones picked up three spots on pit road in the 20 after the penalty. You're on board with him here. >> They rebound 11.8-second pit stop after the penalty. That's a good job. >> Man, there is a lot of on throttle time here. >> Sometimes you have to be nice. >> That's the corner on the 5. >> Everybody is wide open. >> Outside. Right. Tight right. Five car line-up behind him. >> He hit him to help. >> That bounce knocked Larson ahead of Busch. [9:57:59 PM] >> They won't lose the lateral grip. >> Dillon going back on the inside. Jones goes up high. A little help from tail Earnhardt, Jr., and the purple machine. >> Fifth place. Getting him up through traffic. See how he pokes the nose out. Looking for clean air. As the air pulls down in front of him, he has to get out of the throttle. See if he's tight there. We know they have improve Ed that. He can get comfortably inside the top ten. Gets company there from DI Dillon on the inside. >> Threw the block and it definitely loosened up. >> Dillon realizes this is the opportunity on the restart. I have to get it now. If I let him get it now I could be in trouble. Dillon to the inside. Junior letting him slide up in front of him. >> That car is all over the place. Dale is driving the car. >> What are they saying. >> They have also taken big swings at it. All three pit stops. Junior said it was tight from the get-ego. Still that was what they were tracing on the third pit stop. They haven't been shy about the swings they have taken on pit road. Matt? >> On the second pit stop. He lost momentum. Had to soldier on in 8, 9, 10. But the car is good. >> It looks to me like Dale can't Rupp with somebody behind him. It loosens up the car. When somebody gets by him he's right back to him. They will get it fine tuned. Might have swung it and come back. >> That's what I'm seeing. They got it loose. He gets in traffic. Slipping and sliding all over the place. He was shaking it down the back straight away to make sure he doesn't have it. [10:00:02 PM] >> He's worried about something. >> All these junior motor sports cars were outside the top ten. They worked their way inside. Justin Allgaier lost a lap. Got the three pass. Larry Mcreynolds talked about it. Sadler was running fifth. Had to start at the rear on the restart. He's in the 18th spot with 90 laps remaining carrying the flag now. Chase Elliot. Strong all night long. Fourth behind Larson, Busch and keselowski. Austin Dillon hasn't made as much noise as tonight. >> Got the big win out in California. Check out the Texas rangers machine of Jones. His job is to keep up. That's a struggle. That kid is fast. >> Jones admits he likes the rangerss. Dodgers on FS1. A little nl west action early in 2016. Starts out at 3:30 eastern time. I don't blame him. I see that. >> I would be a fan. >> They like shiny new stuff, right? >> I need more grip but I don't like this adjustment. >> We'll go back on that. >> He's saying he wants it to turn better. The rear tires grip less. It's not overall better. >> He's feel ING it. We are seeing it. The car is dancing around. He doesn't like it. You can't win like that. They are so good. So precise with adjustments. We hear so much. Sliding around. You can't get it done. >> I haven't driven one for a while. As soon as the car when you are on the throttle. [10:02:04 PM] As soon as they get loose and you have to check up you can't get it back. It's tough to drive him like that. >> We heard him talking early about how Dale Jr. Has been. Do you give him a hard time. >> Only pushed the button to say nice things when pushing the button. >> People say you are so nice in the car. You never yell. >> Taking down chase Elliot. Your method is smart, Carl. Tuesday's NASCAR race. We do the radio active thing. We never see you there. >> I love listening. He did a good job. >> The bottom falls out of it. >> Now Jones is headed this way which is a great thing. >> That's good. >> Looks like Texas, doesn't it? >> I'll tell you. They have had problems. Every time they answer the bell then. >> They had to go to the longest line on the penalty. They have not made adjustments. The last two times they have come to pit road gives you an indication of why Erik Jones has been able to run it up the boards. >> See if he can get back up there. Jones LED 12 laps earlier. Had a problem on pit road. Put him back in the pack. All about Kyle Larson leading at lap 116. Apparently the engineers who designed the Ford F-150 have been burning the candle at all ends. Cuz' check out their latest brainstorm: Pro Trailer Backup Assist. Just turn this little knob on the dash and it helps steer your trailer exactly where you want it to go. It's just one more bit of brilliance you can't get on any other truck. Freakish. This is the Ford F-150. And every other truck is history The Bud Light Party wasn't invited to the debates. [10:05:19 PM] But we don't need them. We have debates of our own every night. A hotdog is a sandwich. Over Bud Lights, of course. It's pronounced Jif. You cannot outrun a zebra. Here's to good natured civil debates. Also, it's gif. I think we should've taken a left at the river. Tarzan know where Tarzan go! Tarzan does not know where Tarzan go. Hey, excuse me, do you know where the waterfall is? Waterfall? No, me Tarzan, King of Jungle. Why don't you want to just ask somebody? If you're a couple, you fight over directions. It's what you do. If you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to Geico. Oh Ohhhhh It's what you do. Ohhhhhh! Do you have to do that right in my ear? >>> You're a midwest guy, Carl. You have been around the farm. >> I rode a horse. I rode one the other way. It's scary. You're giving it suggestions. This is a giant animal. Really it's scary. Kyle Busch got the lead back here while we were on break. It was interesting. Three wide. Watch the line. Larson went to the high side. He saw bush coming. Couldn't hold him off. He talks about the lap car. >> They drive in. They had to decide which way to go. >> Joey said no, no, no. Brad keselowski has driven up around Larson. I think the 22 is the fastest car on the track. [10:07:20 PM] Talk about liking the adjustments. Maybe giving it more. That's coming alive. >> If we can run the bottom. Right now we are eight behind Kyle. Six behind Kyle. Six. We come up the line. That's the guy on top of the roof. You know how valuable that is. >> Very talented spotter. Sharp guy the 42 fading a little bit as the run continues. Back in the top three. They had the pit road penalty. That came 50 laps ago. Hasn't taken long to put themselves back in position. >> Look at the way they tuck it down there. The 42 falling back. He's struggling now. >> The handle has gone away. He said it's too tight. Particularly on the entry to the center. Way too tight. That's where the 42 is dropping back. >> We have watched the lap times here. The times are faster and faster. That changes the way the car interacts with the racetrack. >> Had the fast speed. The fastest lap of the race. >> You can really run the fast laps. They will have another crack at it. They have been fast enough to drive to the lead. We'll see if they make the right adjustments. [10:09:21 PM] >> It's been impressive. Ty Dillon struggled. He's getting it done tonight. >> Just a note for you. They don't like each other. They will fight each other. The ultimate fighter is back on FS1. >> How coolle to coach against someone and beat them up if you didn't like the way it went. >> Lose the battle and win the war. >> I will show you who's in charge. >> Another driver that slid. Kyle Larson. A couple of spots behind. Going in the wrong direction on this run. Gaughan worked his way back into the top ten. So has Jones. Tenth now. Kyle Busch on point. His advantage over Brad keselowski. 1.2 seconds. >> Are you free at all. >> The lead started to be free entry exit. Maybe half a number. >> 10-4. >> Definitely, you know, Kyle is keeping track of what's hag. Whether he's in the lead or in traffic. Giving great feedback to the crew chief. He has air on the car. If he has to race, you know it will be freer in traffic. >> You give me Kyle Busch with the car within half a number. I have a pretty good shot at it. Kyle won the truck race Saturday. Here he is tonight dominating in the XFINITY serds. How much of his success as we watch teammates going at it on track. How much of Kyle's success is just sheer speed, ability to drive versus transfer of information? He's so good on the radio. >> Since I have joined Joe Gibbs racing I have learned how good Kyle Busch, Hamlin, Matt Kenseth. [10:11:25 PM] I knew how good Matt was. Kyle is so good at driving on the ragged edge. They can tell you everything that happened. If he saw your car he can tell you what the car will do later on. When the sun goes down he has an amazing wealth of knowledge. It is neat to be a teammate with Kyle Busch. He helped me a lot. >> I love after practice we saw Kyle Busch struggle a little bit. He wasn't first on the board. But I talked to him after practice. He's like, I'm fine. We have it right. I guess he knew. >> We saw the teammates doing battle here. 33.62. Smithley in the middle. >> Man, smithley is a cool guy. I met him talking to him. He's been working hard. He did a good job keeping things straight. Not making it bigger than it was. >> Great kid out of Georgia. All four rcr cars inside the top ten. >> Gaughan trying to get his first top ten. Got a vibration. The crew chief, look at the data. They can pull off the air guns. Looked like it. Shane said you get damage on the left front and that could be fluttering around a little bit. That could be the vibration you have. Anything more about the vibration. Everything could be all right. >> That's what you do when you wiggle at 165 miles an hour. >> Speaking of wiggling, Dale Jr. Lost it for a minute as he went inside of Kyle Larson. >> The guys are battling. You driving that hard tomorrow night? >> I am. >> You know how it is. You have a Goodyear tire like this. It's neat to drive the car outside of the straight. You don't keep it straight all the time. You get comfortable. [10:13:26 PM] It doesn't feel as sideways as it looks. >> I heard you were nervous about final practice so amped up after winning the poll. -- Pole. >> We have a fast car. Here is a replay. You have to be looking forward to this. Watch them. He didn't have a choice but to slide in front of Larson. >> Larson made a good choice there. He'll let Dale gather it. See what happens. >> Give credit to Dale Earnhardt Jr. They will have another opportunity to come down, work on the 88. Steadily better as the weekend has gone on. >> It's cool for Dale to come back. This is in sight of his first win. Cool to come back and run the race. Long two nights of racing. >> 63 laps remain. I know you will be amazed at this. Kyle Busch out front in the XFINITY series. Ok, so the government crashed-tested the F-150. The one with the high-strength military-grade, aluminum-alloy body bolted to a high-strength steel frame. And guess what? It made the strongest statement any truck can make. It pulled a 5-star safety rating... On all sides... For every cab configuration. 'Cuz when they say military-grade, they mean: "Battle tested." This is the Ford F-150. And every other truck is history. I pledge allegiance to the flag uniting all Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants. And to the Colonel, for which he Sanders. Which means hand breadin' and freshly preparin' chicken the hard way. So I came back, to make sure everything is still finger lickin' good. Give our chicken another chance. One freshness, under American farms, daily hand-prepared, so help us Sanders. [10:15:27 PM] Chicken... ...Colonel quality guaranteed. >>> 58 laps to go in Texas. Erik Jones, Ty Dillon. Dale Earnhardt Jr., the top five. Carl Edwards back with us in the booth at Texas motor speedway. You're doing a lot of work with the children's charities now. >> I can't thank FS1 enough. >> Jeb Burton around. [10:17:29 PM] >> Right there. >> He could really battle back after flu conditions yesterday. Limited time on track. Qualified decent to the top 15. Jeff Burton as well. >> The cars have started to slip and slide. >> For the 43. Just nowhere to go. >> You can't cut it to the left. You're committed to the high five. >> Nothing you can do. >> The 43 hit the wall. It slows him down a lot. >> Look at the job Chastain does to slip by. Cooke not so fortunate. >> They were racing for 17th on track when the incident happened. >> Around the corner. Up high. Back it down. Back it down. Inside. Come on through. Nice job. Here you go. >> Very good job spotting. You don't know. All you can do is back it down. >> Looked like the right front tire failure for Burton. Like we saw earlier with Poole. The tires were pretty worn at that point of the run. Away it went. >> You pointed out some of the guys were pinning there. Deep on the tires. >> Cook and Burton go to the garage. Pit road is closed. Come around one more time. That will put us right around 54-55 laps to go. My math says they are in the window from here. >> By the time we run a few more cautions at them. They can easily make it. We were talking during the commercial break. This will be a critical stop. Those drivers have to give their crew chief information of what the car has done. The track went through a major transition. [10:19:32 PM] This could be the last opportunity to make the adjustments on the car. >> That's the untold story. I watched from up here noticing the guys adjusting the cars are the best. It sounds el meantry. They are able to stay up front. What do you want to hear and what doesn't help? What annoys you? >> Things like it's not driving good now. Things I can't work on. I want to know what it's doing on entrance, middle and exit. I want to know what it did in the last one run. That's more relative to the run we'll have toward the end. >> The crew chief took a breath now. He's all set. There is another question. We have tires for them. Strategy is out the window. It is about breakneck speed and adjustment. >> Let's hear what Kyle had to say. >> Is the 22 faster or is he balanced? >> He staed doing worse. He's breaking even for the early part of the run. >> That's interesting. Not only do you have to do what Larry did? Catalog everything. Tell the crew chief what it did over the run. He wants to know where he stands. He's paying attention and know what is the 22 did. Whether he needs to work on it or not. >> We'll come to pit road. Make this crucial pit stop. Be fer fekt on pit road. Hit the timing lights perfectly. Stop and get out in a hurry. >> Like doing the triple perfectly. >> Super cross. It's tough. >> Nice transition. >> For the 25th consecutive season tomorrow night super krsz in the circle city. That's cool. >> I love watching them. >> They are so good. So amazing. >> He's come out. [10:21:36 PM] >> Ken roxin won three. >> Trey is stepping up. He's a good dude. To get a win for him would be huge. The systems guys think a lot of him. He invited me to come ride with him and I would like to. Take bowyer with you. He's fun to watch on a motorcycle. >> I'll ride after him and watch for a while. >> You were interrupted. We were talking about it. Let's get back to that. >> Speedway children's charity is good for a number of reasons. They make sure whatever money you give them, they vet the other charities and donate the money to the right places. You could be sure when you donate to speedway that the money is going to the kids, period. It is an amazing charity. You guys made a donation of $5,000. For me coming up here it means a lot. Thank you for being part of speedway children's charity. >> You need to hang out with us more. >> I'm having fun, too. >> You have been helping everybody else get their money. Tomorrow get you some cash. >> That's what I need to do. >> We need a victory. We have an awesome team. Dave Rogers. Everybody is working well together. I have a fast pit crew. Hopefully we can have a great race. >> You got a lap down. Got the lap back and followed up inside the top ten. >> That's a tough thing to do. We are watching Erik Jones do it. When something doesn't work right the easiest thick to do is crumble. That's just tough. To have a team that sticks together. Most importantly for me, guys that believe in me. They build me up. It's a lot of fun. >> This is what I was thinking last week for you. You had to work so hard to get to the front. The good news is that's a chase track in the fall. You take confidence when you go back. >> I talked to Kyle about the car. It was neat to hear. He didn't have to pass guys. [10:23:37 PM] It is a much different race for him. Having him as a teammate and his success will help us in the fall. >> Bristol is always a ball. I can't wait to get there. We have an unbelievable format we'll race. >> A short track like martinsville to get there and get it done. >> The mid corner insane. You are up there against the fence bouncing over the rubber. That's a crazy race. What exactly are you doing? You have three races? >> We'll have heats and then a main. >> The heats are 50 laps. They set the field for the main. >> The line-up for the main is 200 laps. Then we have the dash for cash which is four drivers going for a bonus. $100,000. >> Four XFINITY drivers. A bonus of $100,000 at Bristol. >> Pit road is finally open. >> The car didn't change after the last round of adjustments. Too free on entry. Brian Wilson with a couple of options. >> Made a perfect pit stop after an early penalty. Jones said the or is good. It is a little tight in the center. They will make a chassis adjustment. Matt? >> It was similar to the first for Kyle Busch. After 25 laps he was concerned about trying to adjust the front end of the run here. It might hurt him. They did make a chassis adjustment and the three is coming. >> Big delivery on pit road. >> No contest coming off. It's Kyle Busch and Brad keselowski. Under caution. ♪♪ Kyle Busch, the 2015 Champion! [10:25:40 PM] ♪♪ Toyota. Let's Go Places. Popped up. [10:27:41 PM] >> Out there in left field. >> Tight, tight. >> There is no feel. The tires feel like they are just done. >> Be ready. >> Put right size on it. We'll try to get back out there. >> The leader is -- >> It's been a fun night at Texas motor speed it is way. Pit road. Vince Welsh, Chris Neville. Matt Yokum. 15 laps to go. There you see the top five. Going to make history. The first trip ever from usc to Croatia. >> That's big for the guys. >> I like rosswell. He's tough. >> Punt and punt. He'll just take him down. >> Fight night in the morning. >> We'll get that. Go to early church service and come home at 11:30 and get two guys beat the snot out of each other. >> Talk about a scrum. Look who is right behind Kyle Busch. The fastest car on the track in the mid stages of the race. Erik Jones pushes his teammate. If they are able to push around Brad keselowski. >> Kyle is asking about the 22. This is what it's all about. On the front row. >> Here comes the push. >> He was just laughing a little bit. >> That was a push gone wrong. >> Ready to go. Knocked them sideways. [10:29:43 PM] >> Keselowski wanted him pushing there. Might get a replay later. I wonder why. Be careful what you ask for. >> All that allowed Erik Jones to move in behind Kyle Busch. Here's what you were talking about. >> To a see how quick? Did you see him back up? >> Right. >> See what Erik Jones sees out to the right. >> Just outside. He's coming here. Clear. >> Almost got the right front fender of the 22 which wouldle not be good for the stretch run. >> Looked like he checked up. Sometimes you miss a gear. Maybe spun the tires. It looked abrupt. >> Dale Jr. Had a loose car. Is that smoke up ahead ? >> It is. >> Ask for an adjustment. Around the outside of Austin Dillon. Last time we were racing. He's strong. Chase Elliot to the bottom. >> Chasing up the hill on entry. >> For 13th. Got around Darrell Wallace, Jr. >> What an impressive night Ryan had. In that yellow numbered car on the right. Impressed with the top ten. Trying to take one of the four spots. He can get the job done. They are able to get there and run ahead. Winning the championship. Like Sadler he's been racing. Allgaier, what a great solid job. >> Making the most of everything he got the whole night. >> Pitted from 12th. Scrambled back to the front. [10:31:44 PM] He's fun to watch. >> Back in the garage with Vince Welsh. >> An unfortunate end to that night. >> We are really tight. I was chattering the tires all night. It was hard to tell. I went down into three. Chattered it worse. I was even slower. I thought I had a problem. It was too late. It went down. Knocked the wall down. I feel bad for the guys. They have been working hard. I want to thank Jay striker. We just got to keep getting better. We struggled tonight for sure. We'll get him at Bristol. >> He showed up. He wants to show everybody he deserve it is chance. He's racing hard. >> Tough to do. The competition here is tough. As I sit back there and watch it, I know how good he is. Like Erik. Able to make something happen. >> Brad keselowski trying to recover after problems on the restart. Third now. >> Wow! We turned right. I thought we were going into the wall. >> Taking inside with us. >> I can't see damage. Definitely on the inside. >> We are waiting on pictures now. >> I couldn't hear the audio that well. Without Brad making comments he spun the tires a little bit. He wasn't upset. That was Joey going, wow! He thought they crashed. >> Joey was just here at one point. Never lifted off the button. He kept talking. >> The organization has been so good winning the last few years. [10:33:47 PM] Outside the top five. First time they finished outside the top five in four straight races in four years. But they are back on the game tonight. Third as we have 40 laps to go. >> Talking to Brian T crew chief he said we have been so busy. We have taken the car through so many dynamic tests. Gone through seven different tests with the car trying to make it better. We have a wind tunnel test coming up. Roger pen ski not happy they didn't see victory lab. Throwing everything at it now. >> When I race the guys they were relentlessle. Very, very tough competitors. Roger penske, they will get it if I canned. That's a lot of testing. A lot of research and development. >> A shout out to Ryan reed along the outside of Allgaier. The car is just falling off since the issue early in the race. Not able to keep up the pace. We have seen the track get darker. The track has definitely changed. It's all about keeping up with adjustments. >> Watching Ryan reed here. He's another guy. I got to hang out with him. Did a work out with me, him and Trevor. We swam. I can't swim. These guys were good swimmers. Ryan couldn't either. He at any time mind half drowning for 30 minutes. He's tough, persistent. He's sticking with it, working and it's paying off. >> A few years ago diagnosed with diabetes. Told he would never race again. Battled back and stated his beliefs he would be back on top at daytona. So good to celebrate the kid's success. >> Very tough competitor. >> What are they saying down there. >> Pretty much running tenth most of the night. Spoke with Ryan. Just made a lot of mistakes. [10:35:47 PM] I have had speeding penalties. Also the team made a couple of errors over the wall. >> Dale Jr. Closing in on the 42 here. Interesting if we watch them get in the corner. >> That thing is hung out. >> It's hard following a guy, too. The car in front disrupt it is air. Your car doesn't handle the same way. For Dale to drive in and catch him say it is car must be better than it was earlier. >> Chase Elliot behind those two. Trying to close. Have a three-way battle here for the fifth position here. >> Not far behind him. Sadler had a tire that got away. Lost all track position. Worked his way back inside the top ten. He came in second. The leader, Daniel Suarez. He's never been able to get it back. Right now, three past position for driver 19. Scored 17th. If he could get a caution he would be back in the game here late. >> How many sets of tires does everyone have left? >> They have one. One set. That's perfect. >> Yes. This is going to be interesting. You know, if the last restart will mean a lot. We have seen how much clean air matters if they get it. It will definitely see how it plays out. >> Great move by junior. We talked about the loose car. He drove to the bottom. Was able to pass Larson. See if he can March up to the front. He gets track position with a late restart. He can be a factor. >> Dale hasn't been in one of the cars for a long time. I have to imagine he should be getting better. The timing of the throttle application. What he wants out of the car. >> Ryan trying to take the 11th spot from Brandon Jones. Dives hard to the bottom. >> Brandon Jones, a rookie out of Atlanta, Georgia. [10:37:49 PM] Seeing this track for the third time. A couple of truck starts here last year. Top 11 in every race so far in 2016. Off to a great start in the rookie campaign. Chase Elliot dipping below the 42 of Kyle Larson. Austin dilloning going on the door as well. >> After the tires get laps on them. If he can keep it in contention and get a caution late with 20 to go that's another carer to watch. As this thing wears on he keeps losing ground. A spot there to Austin Dylan. >> He knows what he needs for it to be wet better. Go back to Ryan. Ryan Stegall. How well they are running. >> He has to work things over. >> Cowboys house of pain. They worked out at 6:00 A.M. It was unbelievable. Listened to the same best of BOB Seger album every morning at 6:00 A.M. I can't hear the songs without everything hurting. >> If the crew chief. We fight hand in hand. Austin Dillon with the cowboy hat. 7th now, Vince. >> Throughout the course of the night. Particularly at 3/4. They are still struggling but the car has gotten better from where they started. That's for sure. They move up inside the top ten. Good enough to get where he wants to go. Probably not. They are not too bad. Just not quite good enough here tonight. >> He chose a different spoilerer configuration. >> He has an extension over there. [10:39:51 PM] Some of the guys will run extensions on the east side. It changes it. The side force of the car. In the driving style. >> That's the car that Kyle Busch is driving now. We were talking about it. Look how well it's in the circle. >> That might be more about the camera man. >> Whatever. >> You can tell the rookie is here. Fun to watch and learn. >> Bush on the pole. Leading with 28 to go. NASCAR on fox. You take the lead with 28 remaining. >> I would love to have the lead with 28 remaining. I have shaved since then. >> The car was easy to drive. It drove well. A lot like we had seen tonight. We struggled in practice after this. We have to go back and work on that. That was cool. >> What about the commitment to run around here. That's amazing. >> A good race car makes it easy. >> Fly higher. Go further. Do more. Take it to the next level, with Polaris the world's best-selling side-by-sides.

We are having a great time. Taking you down the stretch. 21 years to go. [10:43:51 PM] The way they lined up at the start of the race. Kyle Busch, Eric Erik Jones teammates. They are still out front. >> Another one, two, three finish. Daniel Suarez didn't look like he'll get there. Came in with the lead. You see Jones in second. 2.7 seconds behind. Keselowski, Elliot. His 5th. Got around while we were away. >> You see Kyle Busch around the bottom of the racetrack there. Closed in on by Jones. By Kyle Larson moving up the hill. He likes that. He got the adjustments he needs to run it there. >> They have been going at it pretty good here. >> Junior passed him. There goes Dale Jr. To the bottom. They can put him away in this turn. >> Two extremes. Glued to the bottom. He's able to clear him. Yes. They have to have a good time. >> It is fun. Fun to race like that. You can move around a little bit. That's what the race is about. >> Watching that Austin Dillon. He said, y'all, keep that up. I will come join the fun. The 48 car hard into the wall. Soldiering along. Making something out of nothing. >> Making laps and learning. That's a bonus. A lot of guys battled back from problems. Erik Jones had a problem on pit road. Talked about the fact he's second. The tire got away. [10:45:52 PM] His teammate Justin Allgaier had a tire problem. Unscheduled pit stop. Lost a lap. Got the free pass. He finds himself 11th. His two teammates continue to do battle. >> I want to finish in front of you. No, I want to finish in front of you the rest of the night. >> Company bragging rights on the line. >> The guy in the purple car is paying the guy in the red car. >> He's reconsidering that. >> Better be careful. The check will bounce. >> They are having fun out there. Chase Elliot was happy with the race car. Just over the last step the car got loose. They made big swings on adjustment. Slide around a little bit. >> With Dale Earnhardt, Jr., he's got his hands full. He said it is free in the center. We see it throughout the course of the night. He said it's loose on exit. It's loose everywhere. Great battle there with the 5 of chase el Elliot. >> Almost like they said, hey, we are running 5th and 6th. Let's see how much time we can get. On TV here. Look at chase Elliot in the corner. That's fun to watch. >> We don't often see four cars for junior motor sports. A handful of times this year. Next time in two weeks Dale Jr. At Richmond. In the 5, Cole Custer making his XFINITY series today buy. >> That will be coolle to see. When they come back here to Texas again. Really neat for junior motor sports. >> Driving the 88 this year. What do you see, Larry? 14 to go. >> I'm looking at the fact that we went back racing with 49 to go. [10:47:54 PM] If we make it to the checkered flag that would be the longest green flag run of the night. I think back to drivers that didn't have the best night going that had a right front tire issue like Poole early and Jeff Burton. Trying to run 49 laps especially for a driver that's had handling problems is pushing the right front tire. >> Larry, watching the guys slide around they haven't backed off. They are not aware of it. They are pushing the cars sideways. Trying hard to get this race -- the cars to the finish with the best finish they can get. >> We have a green flag run of at least 46 laps. Every race this year for the XFINITY series. When you talk about overtime we have not had an overtime session in 2016. Only two times have we gone to an extra session here at Texas motor speedway. >> I want to know from Larry's perspective. The crew chief, all they are doing is planning on what we'll do when the caution comes out. >> If the caution came out now, what will you do? >> The biggest thing is put air in the tires. Imgive you four. You look now. The give up since they last pitted. I think where it becomes a chess match is if we get down around four or five to go, are we going into overtime? >> Dillon falling back Michael. >> I want the tires. That car is all over the place. >> 15 laps to go. The car has now gone to the free side. Two laps. Told his team I may have a tire going down. They are ready for him to pit if he needs to. >> It would be a tough break to get inside 10 to go inside the top five. They have to make a pit stop. >> Five seconds ahead of 11th place. They have to hang on and hope for the best. That's a tough position to be in. [10:49:56 PM] >> Any time we have had a long run we have seen a tire file. We have had issues like this. Closing out under green could be a stretch. >> We have said it a lot tonight. Junior motor sports. What a difference a day makes. Outside the top ten in practice. Here they are, all inside the top eight with 9 to go. >> You get a chance for the pit crews on pit road . You pump up the tires. Get a restart. We saw what happened on the last restart. Definitely one of the cars could be in victory lane. >> 2.6 seconds in front of him with eight to go. >> Here at the XFINITY series. To this trophy case. He hasn't said a lot about the race car. He said to make a note about the tires about that later. To make a note about a slight engine vibration. He's just looking for the windshield, counting down laps. >> In every event this year that Kyle Busch competed in he LED over a hundred laps. Justin Al fwier three wide racing for 6th. Sadler is there. Ty Dillon continues to fall. >> That tire issue could be getting worse for Dillon. He loses more spots. Last time by he only ran about 32 seconds. A good half second or so off the lead lap prior. Allgaier really super. Kyle Busch out there in the lead. Waiting for the caution. He's talking about vibration. [10:51:57 PM] He got a flat tire. Then got passed. The guy ran out of gas. I thought he would still win. >> He probably hasn't thought about that. >> He didn't compete in the season opener. 75 of the laps this season. Closing on 800 in five races. He's been dominant. >> He's pretty good at this. >> It will work out for him. >> Won the truck race in martinsville. >> His third NASCAR win in a row in three different series. >> You're jinxing him now. Just keep focus on what he has to do for five laps. >> This is a great battle. Kyle Larson and fwaun are just ahead. Closed in on the guys over the last. This is great racing. >> This is neat. This is when it's fun. You have a few laps left. You're three wide racing guys fighting for the last position. This is all about fighting for your guys. It's a fun time in racing. >> If you're Carl Larson who's the guy in the other car and where did he come from? He's hauling. >> When you can do it tlts a lot of pride in that. They can search for grip. >> 11, 12 and 13 there. Here the race leaderle Kyle Busch. When he comes back around. We'll see two laps to go. Two and a half seconds is Erik Jones. >> Destroy the tires. >> 10-4. Take care. Get it to the end. >> Got to make three more laps. He'll do that. Get it to the end. >> Kyle Busch trying to bring it home. So close to making it four in a row a few weeks ago. [10:54:01 PM] Auto club speed way in southern California. Michael said it after taking the white flag a tire came apart. Had to settle for a second place finish on Saturday afternoon. Trying to deliver his fourth win of the season. The white flag is in the air. A mile and a half to the victory for Kyle Busch. >> He's got the 2.6 second lead. Manages whatever issues he might be having with the tires and just get there. >> So dominant tonight. Leading 151 of 200 laps. His 80th career win. The best all-time. How about getting it done eight times at Texas motor speedway. Kyle Busch a winner again. >> That's a much better last lap than California. Three races in seven days. That's correct. >> And three different series. >> Maybe six days. >> That's spectacular. >> Congrats to everybody at Joe Gibbs racing. They work hard. That's a great win for them. >> He had to work on the car. The team had to make adjustments. There were guys that were better than him throughout the course of the race. The adjustments were made. He was able to drop off to a couple seconds of the victory. Fourth win of the year for Kyle Busch. The all time wins leader here at Texas motor speedway. The 9th time they got the checkers here. 8 for Kyle. The other coming when Erik Jones got a career victory a season ago. >> That's a pretty good burn out. You know? I can't to the burnouts like this. They're good at that. [10:56:04 PM] >> They can't do the back flip. Y'all are even. I remember when he run at Phoenix. Chris gale said celebrate but don't tear up the car. I have to test it in a few weeks. >> The biggest thing I saw tonight is Kyle won the race. He wins a lot. He's dominant. They worked hard. They had to battle guys, make adjustments. He got past for the lead. A testament to team work. Staying on top of changes throughout the night. >> 151 laps LED is dominant. Kyle Larson was out front for 37 laps. Jones had opportunities as well. >> There were a lot of guys faster. Great job staying on top of that. >> Jones with the second place finish. The third car spun out. Suarez was in the free pass position for most of the laps of the race. Great lap times. Didn't catch a break and get the caution he needed. He might have could have been a factor. >> Fourth and fifth there. Chase Elliot. They did a great job really. Who knows? That's the thing. You have all night to dial in. They work their way to the front. They department get a chance on the restart. Great night. >> They strung them together. >> Bran ton Jones. First time near an XFINITY car was ninth. Ryan Stegall worked so hard on the last. Gets his first top ten finish of the year. >> He passed good race car drivers for sure for the top ten finish. >> Erik Jones. >> Second time this season. You came to pit road with the lead on lap 79. The team got a pit lane penalty. Was that the difference? >> No. It definitely didn't help by any means. It's not fun to run second overall. [10:58:06 PM] You know, a good day for us. Definitely had the car. That put us back to the point where it was hard to make adjustments and keep up with the track. Good game stop. Those guys are coming along this week. Seemed to be that much better. Trying to do it next week. >> Erik Jones second place. >> Brad keselowski gets the 22 car back. Lots of adjustments. Got speed back on the car. What happened on the final restart there? >> Everybody took part of the XFINITY series to push and get runs. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. It looks good when it works, bad when it doesn't. >> A decent day for the discount tire Ford and the program. We haven't started the year like we wanted. Now we have momentum. Starting to get the cars better. We were half a second. Running the cars wide open at the local go cart track. We are starting to get this to run with the Gibbs cars. Feels good. >> Good to see the 22 up front. >> It is. Second top five finish of the year. Logano came home this year at daytona. Kyle Busch in victory lane. A familiar scene at Texas for driver 18. >> Talked about Texas motor speedway. They set victory lane on fire. >> Here he is, Matt. >> On fire on the racetrack as well. His 27th win from the pole. 27th for 51 from the pole. That's impressive. It seemed tonight was this a great example of the total package? Great stops and good calls. >> Good calls from the pit box for sure. He's got his money's worth. [11:00:07 PM] Had to make it better. Had great speed. There through the middle part of the race when Erik Jones caught me. When Larson was ahead they were better at this point. We had to fine tune and work on the balance a little bit. Overall this is good and cool for the guys. Appreciate every one. XFINITY and the fans. We appreciate everyone pulling for us and what we were able to do. >> You have to add another winner stickerer, your fourth to the roof rail and a second place finish. What means the most about what you have experienced so far this year? >> I think working with this group of experienced so far this year? >> I think just working with these guys. We worked together last year, to come out as strong as we could have last year it could have been five in a row. Certainly we had a great season, a great leader, guys have don't a great job following him and believing in what we're doing. Everybody gets a break from Kyle at Richmond. I still have one more next week at Bristol. I don't know if I get a cookie or what, but I won a cup race, a truck race, and infinity race all in a row. >> Something about cotton candy? >> I want a cookie. >> He leads over 100 laps this year, and he says it could have been five in a row. You drivers never forget, do you? >>He is a perfectionist. >> We're going to change gears totally next weekend. [11:02:08 PM] It's not able aerodynamics. It's about grip and grit. Just bearing down and running that car hard into the corners. >> It will be exciting to watch. >> Tomorrow on the grid walk, can you get Kyle a cookie? >> I love that. Aj -- >> Thank you for being here. >> Thank you, it was a lot of fun. >> And we're hoping to go two for two on the weekend. We'll see if you can do it tomorrow night. >> Absolutely. He acted like a veteran. How about Kyle Busch, so impressive what this guy is able to do. His eighth Texas win. Next week go to Bristol. He has eight wins there and his 80th series win win overall. >> I think what gets lost in the shuffle about Kyle Busch is he is only 30 years old. He will be here awhile longer. >> What do you think he can do tomorrow? >> I would not put it past him, and of course we're going to his favorite place next week. >> Someone get him a cookie. We have our people in victory lane on the hunt. We'll see you next week from Bristol motor speedway. Now it is time for "MLB whip around." >> Yeah, we're on the air, Josh Donaldson on the plate in Toronto with the bases loaded. [11:04:08 PM] After grand slam there, maybe a grand slam here for starling. >> Deep to left, there it goes. A grand slam to left. >> What else do we have? O a story developing in Colorado with Trevor story. >> Hi in deep left field. Take a good look. You won't see it for long. Irows larger. >>> What a day in baseball. We're not done, welcome to "MLB whiparound" if is rough when you don't get the name of the show right. Budweiser is the sponsor, that's important to get right. . We start the show on a somber note, bad news for Chicago, Kyle schwarber out for the season. A torn acl and MCL in his left leg. >> Well, again, I want them to understand that it is all about him right now. It's all about him. We'll figure out a way to survive for the moment. One of the most refreshing and talented in major league baseball, and now to be out for the rest of the season is not easy. [11:06:10 PM] We just want him to know that we will be there for him when ever he needs. >> Kawasaki getting called up. Let's see how the diamond backs offense can do later, the answer is they're going nothing, double play. Let's move to the third. Scoreless game, bases loaded for Jason Hayward. >> That's an easy rbi. So that's 2-0 Chicago right now over Arizona with the call against Hammill. The cubs are off to a great start, but how does this hurt them? >> I don't think they will miss him. He brings is skill set that is not replaceable, they even have Shane Victorino. From an athletic standpoint, the left-handed power bat, the excitement, the exuberance, they will miss that, but they will keep marching. >> He is a guy that will line up when he comes to the plate. But as a defense, they will get better, Joe madden, he has four or five guys in there. They are deep. The cubs will be fine, but he will be missed. Maybe for a home run here and there and he will not be there. >> Helpful they got Heyward back in the off season. [11:08:13 PM] Back to the cubs game in Arizona. Anthony Rizzo at the plane with two on, ray still pitching. >> A ground ball. Fowler is hung up. >> Got him. It is a double play. >> That was kind of ugly. >> Very ugly. How would you like to score keep that? >> Having to figure that out. >> And that is the immediate replacement for schwarber. Let's go through the lielts right now. Facing hunter pence. And a nice little catch there. The home run, Matt Duffy. >>> Puig is on fire. >> Yeah, a nice running play here, dives -- >> I like it. We're not even into the first weekend yet. >> Score less in the bottom of the first inning there. And Matt cane. How about rangers and angels. Mike trout gets the silver slugger award. It will fall in front of Mike trout, and a nice little first here. [11:10:14 PM] Adrian Beltre, making it 2-0. And then down the hole, fortuitous on the bounce. >> We all know -- >> We have a update, a runner on. >> He will pull up, that one is gone. His first of the season. And it is 5-1 Texas. >> It can really provide a lot of pop. >> And Jeff banister telling us last night, the manager of the rangers, they they are excited and can produce at any level. >> The hall of famer throwing out the first pitch. >> Doing it from the grass, but you have to be on the bound. >> So walker, Valencia, and Seeger. They needed 27 pitches to get out of the first inning. A scoreless game up in Seattle. We have another game still going on, twins and Royals, Byron Buxton, but a guy pretty handy with a glove out there. >> They almost let him get away. >> Yeah, they did. [11:12:14 PM] >> A zero drop off as well. That is a bogged pitch. A sad little pun there. Okay, 2-2. Park! The first major leg home run. Hang on, update, bottom eight with a runner on. Roils down a run. Rosario just came into the game for defense, going for three. Safe and now the ball gets away, but he will hold. Perez tied the game with a triple. >> The roils are still trying to take the lead here. Sheer Perez on third. >> Hit well to center field. This puts the Royals in front. Minnesota takes the lead. And the Royals only needing three batters. >> How often do you see a Perez triple. >> The first triple of the year. >> It gets better and better. >> Hey, listen, you're starting to look better and better. All right, we have more coming when we come back. . Doing some hitting against the Yankees with the new tiger on the mound. >>> And the or yells off to a 3-0 start. Very exciting, looking for the long ball again today, their specialty. [11:14:19 PM] >>> In Chicago, snow. I know it snows in Chicago, but it's April. White sox highlights and a little dance. We'll get you updated, giants and dodgers, looking for they're first run. All of that when we come back here on "MLB whiparound." See you then. So which saw did you use? Power saw. Power saw. Power saw. You all chose the most powerful tool. Wouldn't it make sense to make the same choice, when it comes to your truck? Absolutely. This is the 2016 Chevy Silverado. It offers the most powerful engine in its class. (Whistle) Awesome. I'd say it's the best tool for the job. Right on. [11:17:35 PM] >>> Baseball is back, a great rivalry, dodgers and giants, Madison bumgartner. Tigers and giants playing tonight. A toughy here. >> Can they go through it again? >> Stripling and Ellis together. >> Tommy John. >> The dgers are very high on him. They said just work hard, we'll have your back. >> Of course he would. >> We can only drink beer. >> Does everyone? >> Of course they do. >> It will be closed -- okay, let's get some updates. Scooter going yard. >> That is no messing around. That is back in the prince fielder days. This man right here, Chris Carter, bam. >> We know he has power. And former astro doe min go santana. And let's go to the eighth still, 4-0, Ryan Braun. That is his first. Hang on, the Astros are not done. [11:19:36 PM] Let's get a update right now. 2 for 3 already at the late with ducks on the pond. >> They made it right into center. Santana with a long way to go, does dhoe it again? He has. A three-run Homer. His improbable ride in the big league continues. Amazing. >> Pretty good. Now the second Homer of the year. They added another, now there is two on and one out in the ninth. >> They did it all last year. But this is going ballpark again. >> It has to be the second best place to hit home runs. >> Yeah. We will keep you updated once something happens there. That is a lot of snow. >> Yeah, the same move in the last few years. >> A double clutch cost him. So he gets the era, and the Indians are up 2-0. And then raja Davis. That will. >> Butch: A triple. It is 4-0 Cleveland. Look at that. >> Crazy. >> Look at that. >> And what kind of place are they playing in, right? >> And a great catch by Davis. He is doing it all. And the Indians got a win 7-1. Okay, Gainesville right now, a update from Seattle, we'll take you there. Here is Chris Conlin. [11:21:36 PM] >> This is off of the glove. It is 1-0 athletics. What a hit to pick up his second rbi of the season. >> 1-0 they lead that game and jetting, trailing those rangers last they checked. Two down and two on in the third against aj griffin. >> And you notice they came right away. >> Is there a play where there is not a single shift in baseball. >> The angels would shift on every pitch. The count would change, and it was crazy. The shift now should just be when they play in a regular position. >> It is crazy. Calhoun, rangers up by three. Meanwhile, how about the cardinals. A good one in Tallahassee with the braves, see if they can get on the W here. Five more to go before free drinks. . Big time action on the whip. [11:24:22 PM] But you can get this: A great tasting 5-hour energy® shot. It'll help you be bright eyed and bushy tailed, just like him. Now is the time for 5-hour energy®. >>> Stay [11:26:24 PM] >>> Up date time, let's get to San Francisco. Aj Ellis. The run on second for L.A. >> Ellis hammers a base hit into left scepter. Bringing home/son and the dodgers, first. >> I would like to hear Joe Davis on the call. Again, a rookie making the start for L.A. I showed you the Astros trying to come back into Milwaukee. Here they have two on without two at the plate. One down. >> A ground ball. Goes to second out there, dangerous throw, but they get out. That is a double play if that holds up, the became is over. >> That is what they were talking about earlier. He was not able to maintain control at second base. >> Wow, the second base umpire. >> So the second game in the first weem of the season that a game ends because of an interference. >> Right, the rules state you to slide into second base. You have to maintain second base. The runner does go by the base. He doesn't even look like he is intending to slide into the base. That will never be a double play. , But they didn't give enough time for a player to adjust. It is over. >> The intent of all of these rule social security to promote samety. [11:28:29 PM] No hard there. >> No. They are trying to distract another play. And I don't know what they will do here, but -- >> Here is my question on this. With the new rule, that is clear interference. There is never even a thought to try to turn a double play there. So where is that an automatic double play? It is still the umpire's judgment, but there was never even the thought of a turn of a double play. So the new rule, yes, but the umpires have to -- again, he never even looked. So why is that? >> I think it will take the umpires some time to adjust. We're saying come on, umpires, you're messing this up. The bottom line is the way that the rule has been written. Right now, it needs to be rewritten flp is no way it stays in the present form throughout the season. >> I think when you go back to a couple years ago, you know that first year was a nightmare. And then it started to find it's way a little bit. >> Within three years, no contact in the game of baseball. >> It has been unbelievable. >> If you can't knock out a double play -- >> If that's the rule -- on this day in 1974, one of the signature moments in history. Hank Aaron passing babe Ruth on the all-time home run list. >> That ball will be out of here. It is out of here. It is gone. A new home run champion of all time, and it is Henry Aaron. [11:30:30 PM] >> That is a pretty good moment. Cardinals and braves in Atlanta. It was crushed. Home runs in back to back games, and now tied at four. Pinch-hitter, Diaz, another pinch-hit home run. >> New potential to start -- >> Don't worry, not the last pinch-hitter. Would you believe it will be another pinch-hit home run? It is amazing what they continue to do year after year. >> And he hits that one over the center field wall, and the cardinals get a win with the long ball. So they're feeling good after getting swept by Pittsburgh, and there you go. The piratings and the reds. A rainy night, the great American ballpark. A little dance. >> I think it's like a pep rally. That's what it is. It is like the same thing. Just a Harrison, doing a little dance of his own. >> A little jump in that step. >> Here is sterling who you can barely see, but he has a big bat. They move him down. >> I was really concerned. But he doesn't miss a beat. >> A grand slam for Florez. >> They hit a grand slam, you put those three out there, not a lot of fun. >> The best three in baseball. [11:32:30 PM] But they are not better than you. That is for sure. Last check, Chicago had an early lead. A runner up with one down. So, Arizona on the board, the offense has not really been the issue. They put it together with the pitching thus far. 2-1 cubs. Back to San Francisco, dodgers looking for more in this fifth inning against Matt cane. One run in, two on, here is Seager. >> A base hit. Coming for the play, and he will score standing on a base hit from Seager and it is 2-0 dodgers. >> There you go, 2-0 L.A. Back out there with still a big zero. >> Yeah, the dodgers have had a lot to say about the organizational make up. What they did and didn't do, but they have depth, and they will wear teams down. They will be there at the end. >> Let's go to the Royals. We showed you a big triple and sack fly. >> Yeah. >> Got it. And the Royals take game one from Minnesota. >> The twins a winless week for them. The Royals come back with a couple in the eighth, and they get that victory. They are 2-1 on this young season. Mariners back up to Seattle. And Josh facinyron walker here. [11:34:35 PM] >> To right field -- gone. Home run, Josh Reddick. A swing. >> One of the few mistakes he has made so far in this game.
