Track and safety workers are putting down oil dry from the fourth turn all the way to the turn one area. It's pretty low on the track so it should not be a problem.

Although he is from Florida, it's a little closer to the Tampa area where he frequently ran at East Bay Raceway Park. Cherry had a lot of success in late models at Greenville Pickens Speedway and Tri-County Motor Speedway before progressing into the NKNPSE with Revolution Racing. 
1:50
Comment From Flyin Brians Tailor 

just out of curiosity, where did Michael Cherry race before being signed to Revolution Racing? Isnt he from the Miami area? I didnt know there was a speedway down there

Looking at some of the rules tonight for the Denny Hamlin race. It will be a 6 tire race with a stop at lap 40 for the extra pair of Goodyears. It will be a cone race as each car can pick the lane they want at the cone. We see this at Bowman Gray as drivers will pull up to the outside looking to gain spots. If we have rain then the field will be set by entry forms and all 44 cars would start.
