That will do it from Montgomery, AL. We just got back from the infield where there was no indication in the shed of anything happening tech-wise that would impact the results, so we will assume all is well and hit the long road back to Charlotte.

Congrats to Mason Massey on the Alabama 200 victory and to Hunter Robbins on the 2012 Show Me The Money Series title. Have a safe and blessed rest of your weekend and we hope to see you at the track with Speed51.com soon!

8 Mason Massey (same) 

3:22
Garvey does get rolling again, but will lose his spot. 
3:22
Garvey may have an issue. His team had his car fall off his jack during this pit and when he began to rejoin the field, it looked like one of his tires was not rolling right. He went about three pit stalls and stopped.
3:20
Massey decided to pit on the second go round after all, realizing they may be a sitting duck with just being the only car on the track

3:08
LAP 73 - Donahue, Bethea and Massey now hot and heavy for 4th-6th. 
3:06
LAP 68 - Robbins' lead over Bowen has stabilized. Bowen has pulled away a little from Garvey in the last few laps. 
3:06
Estis' right front was pretty well jammed, but otherwise the rest of the car looked clean. 
3:06
Comment From Guest 

How bad is estis car ?? 

3:05
Eight. Kennedy, Bolden, and Estis' team have just told track officials they are done for sure for the day. 
3:05
Comment From calvin 

how many cars left 

3:05
Comment From Guest 

With cut tires being so common there, drivers should not be penalized for forcing a caution 

3:04
LAP 63 - Donahue nearly gets spun chopping off Bethea's attempt to take fourth, but holds the spot. 
3:04
LAP 62 - Everyone settling in. Garvey still putting a lot of heat on Bowen for second but no one is really stepping out of line yet. 
3:02

3:02

3 Donahue
4 Garvey
5 Bethea
6 Massey
7 Crain
8 Davis (-1)

OUT:

Kennedy
Estis
Bolden

3:00
Bolden's right side sheet metal looked like he faced a can opener. 
3:00
Comment From Guest 

How much damage did it cause to Bolden? 

2:59
Looks like Bolden's team has decided to park thei car for the day. 
2:59
Massey and Crain will pit during this caution. 
2:58
Kennedy may have gotten the worst out of that deal, we saw most of his rear sheet metal go up in the air. 
2:57
2:57
2:57
2:56
CAUTION - Six cars wad up in Turn Three. It started when someone got Stacy Crain sideways. Davis, Bolden, Bethea, Estis, and Kennedy all with significant damage. 
2:56
RESTART - Bowen clears Massey again, but Robbins takes second.
2:55
It intentionally washed up the track and stopped to draw the caution and then immediately refired and drove to pit road. Drivers were warned heavily about that after this was an issue in the Montgomery 150 two weeks ago. 
2:55
Comment From Jesse 

How could he intentionally blow a tire? That seems like an odd call.. 

2:55
Still a lot of work again on Garvey this pit. Looks like the team believes something is broken in the left front area versus trying to make an adjustment. If we hear for sure what is up, we will pass it along. But he will rejoin the field again and be 10th, the last car on the lead lap. 
2:53
Kennedy, Estis, and Garvey pit. 
2:52
Looking at Davis pitting here, team seems to believe it was a right rear tire. 
2:52
Davis will get a one-lap penalty for intentionally causing the caution.
2:51
CAUTION - Davis spun coming out of Turn Two, seems to have had some sort of suspension piece failing.
2:50
LAP 38 - Davis falls all the way back through the lead lap cars, back to 10th. 
2:50
RESTART - Bowen clears Massey from the inside line. Robbins thought about sticking his nose in for a battle for second, but nothing doing. 
2:50
Garvey will rejoin the field just in time, but will restart 11th.
2:48
Under Garvey's hood but looks like for adjustment reasons
2:47
Garvey, Bethea, and Ellis all pitting when the pit road did open. 
2:47
Daniel Bolden pitting before pit road is open.

Donahue will go ahead and stay on the lead lap. 

2:45
We are counting caution laps until Lap 150. 
2:45
CAUTION - LAP 29 - Donahue spun by himself coming out of Turn Four. 
2:44
LAP 25 - Lead for Bowen remains constant at 2 or 3 seconds. Everyone seems to be on cruise control as the drivers have yet to crack the 19-second  bracket. 
2:43
LAP 24 - Kennedy back by Crain for eighth. 
2:42
LAP 20:

1 Anderson Bowen
2 Mason Massey (-2 or 3 carlengths)
3 Robbins
4 Garvey
5 Davis
6 Bethea
7 Donahue
8 Crain
9 Kennedy
10 Bolden
11 Estis 

2:42
LAP 18 - Donahue tapped Kennedy a little, and Kennedy back to 9th after Crain sneaks by. 
2:41
LAP 17 - Kennedy also tried to take sixth from Bethea, but Betha slammed the door. Kennedy lost his momentum and now Donahue challenges for seventh. 
2:41
LAP 15 - Garvey by Bethea through Turn 3 & 4 for fourth. Davis also follows through to take 5th. 
2:40
LAP 14 - Petty tight race thus far as all 11 cars remain on the same straightaway. 
2:39
LAP 11 - Bethea slides out of Turn Four with a little nudge from Robbins, allowing Robbins to take the third spot. 
2:39
LAP 10 - Massey has not really been able to make a run, so he settles back into second. Bethea and Robbins also close behind the top duo. Then a decent gap back to Garvey in fifth. 
2:38
LAP 7- Massey has caught Bowen for the lead. 
2:37
LAP 6 - Robbins by Garvey into Turn 3 for fourth. 
2:37
LAP 5 - Estis by Bolden for tenth, but Bolden goes right back by with the crossover. 
2:36
LAP 4 - Massey gets a run alongside Bethea down the back and makes the pass for second. 
2:36
LAP 2 - Robbins trying the outside lane to pass Davis for fifth. 
2:35
LAP 1: Bowen, Bethea, Massey, Garvey, Davis. 
2:35

Comment From Ryan 

Dang weekend news duty has me sitting at the house, and not in the tower. I've seen every SMTM race this season, and Hunter Robbins has been the most consistent driver in the field, but Garvey has been snake bitten with flat tires and such. Should be a good one this afternoon.

Comment From Jesse 

I want to take a moment to thank SPEED51. Some people assume that it is easy to do what these die hard race fans do. But it really takes alot of time away from family and alot of hard earned money needing to be spent to do this. It is very expensive for what these people do and the fact that they even want to cover these races, that some of us can't be at, is just incredible. To think that this is difficult for them is an understatement, THANK YOU SPEED51!! THANK YOU!!
