9:19
Pena and Hill were also involved. 
9:19
We are aware of the audio issue. Sorry. 
9:18
As they went into three…LaJoie got into Moffitt to do a bump and run. Moffitt slid up but came down and chopped Wallace. Moffitt and Wallace went to the inside wall. LaJoie wins. 
9:18
Looks like all of the drivers are moving and are alright. 
9:17
Looks like Elliott gets second. 
9:17
Moffitt gets bumped by LaJoie. Moffitt and Wallace in the wall. LaJoie wins. We have a mess on the frontstretch.

You’re welcome! 
9:14
Comment From Rich Lyon 

And yes…thanks for doing this you guys. There would be NO other way for me to find out how the race is going ! 

9:14
Moffitt has also lead every lap so far tonight. 
9:13
Be interesting to see how Wallace will factor into this on the re-start. All night long, the car starting on the inside of the second row, has been able to get up to second going into turn one. But could LaJoie try to stay with Moffitt. Moffitt has been great on the re-starts all night. 
9:12
Moffitt, LaJoie, Wallace, Elliott, Little, Gdovic, Ortiz, Larson, Gifford, Jones. 
9:12
On the last re-start…Elliott shut the door on LaJoie going into turn one. LaJoie didn’t like that, hit the chrome horn on Elliott got by him for second. That may not be a good thing for LaJoie as he will have to start on the outside of the front row for the re-start. 
9:10
Comment From Everett 

thank you speed51 for this coverage! 

9:10
Larson appears not to be happy with Ortiz. Looks like Ortiz got into Larson and Weller got the worse of it. 
9:09
Weller hard into the turn one wall…caution is out. GWC coming up. 
9:09
Green is out. Moffitt gets a good lead. Elliott holds on to second as he blocks. But LaJoie bumps him and gets past Elliott for second. 
9:09

But instead of just focusing on Breast Cancer, Sped51.com has partnered with The JEGS Foundation to raise money for all cancer research.

Speed51.com debuts two new style t-shirts in the month of October and for each shirt sold via mail order, the website will donate $10 to The JEGS Foundation, which raises awareness and money for a variety of cancer research.
