After a long needed break that I didn't realize I actually needed until I took it, we're back for the ninth round of the 2019 SRD SuperTruck Series at the World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway!

Almost exactly one month ago we saw Devin Mahoney lock his way into the 2019 Playoffs after an exciting fuel strategy finish at Armory Digital. With two races remaining in the regular season we only have two spots left in the 2019 Playoff grid. Will we see two more winners lock their way in by way of victory or will one of our already established victors sneak in and leave the final spots to be determined by points?

The final two races of the regular season could be a wild card shoot as we first take the one-and-a-quarter-mile speedway here at Gateway and then in two weeks we will cross the border for the 2019 regular season finale at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park road course. Connor Root sits out front in points currently with a 14 point lead over last season's wins leader Mike Ehresman. He'll need two good finishes to put the icing on the cake and bring home the hardware.

Fiorentini: "We're back with a single goal: go all out and smoke'em all. We had a very disappointing run last time around, and honestly, anything better than that will be satisfying. Yet, it would be amazing to visit Victory Lane in that #73 F-150."

@BrendonH12: "Great to be back at the track this weekend! I've gotta be honest though, I had completely forgot about coming here this week! I was sitting in my living room last night watching the "best team in Florida" get beat by Cincinnati when I got the call from the crew that I needed to get my backside up over here or they're gonna have to find another driver for our #12 Dodge Ram. Hopefully, we here at BHR can all have a good run here at Gateway this weekend - now that we're all here... *chuckles* Let's go get it!"

Well, we didn't start the way we wanted to. Our truck had no grip in the center, and was loose coming off the corners, but we worked on it, and we seem to have something to work with for the race.

Trucks are lined up on the grid, we'll receive the command in about ten or so minutes.

Here are today's Keys To The Race:
1. Pit Early, Pit Often -
Tire falloff here at Gateway can be brutal, once we get into a long run if you burnt your tires up early you're not going to have a good time.
2. KEEP YOUR TRUCK CLEAN - In test races run earlier this week guys have gotten pretty gutsy, especially on restarts. This could result in multi-truck wrecks and possibly even a big one. Stay out of trouble and you might find yourself fighting for the victory when all is said and done.

Lap 1 (Green Flag):
Two races to go in the regular season Robert Kurz takes the green flag! He'll get a quick jump and clear D.J. Harris leading into turn one as Harris battles Caudill. Near disaster off of turn two! J.R. Franklin looks like he didn't know that Ben Thomas was there and he slid up right in front of the 9. Thomas has no time to react, making contact with the 95 Franklin gets sideways and almost loses it.

J.R. Franklin is able to collect it as he almost goes spinning through the grass, he'll merge back in and keep going.

Lap 2: D.J. Harris gets a good run through three and four and will take over the lead from Kurz as heres comes Caudill right behind him.

A little of action midpack, Robert Lillie who started 30th has already made his way up to 17th and looks to make his way into the front half of the field.

Another lead change through three and four, this time it's Caudill getting around Harris to lead coming to lap number three. Tyler Jennings has joined the picture as he's looking for a solid run today.

Close one coming to lap four, Jon Peterson got into the rear of Sean English coming out of turn four sending them both into the outside wall, they continue in 32nd and 33rd.

Lap 5 (Caution):
Trouble on the front stretch! Contact between Robert Kurz and Tyler Jennings! John Hooper has no where to go and will make contact with the inside wall.
5b.jpg

Clayton Fogg comes in at full speed and rear ends his teammate, he gets sideways making contact with Ryan Wayne, Matheus Fiorentini, and Brendon Hancock.

Oh no! Joshua Hawkins has nowhere to go and gets into the side of Fogg, the 03 goes flipping past the start-finish line!

A chain reaction behind the initial wreck, Joey Kraus got into the 9 of Thomas. Steven Merzlak has nowhere to go and runs right through the 9.

Coming to lap six under yellow now, everyone is going to head down pit road as we sort out everything that just happened.
Top five onto pit road, Caudill, Harris, Scheidly, Remington, and Everett.

Harris made contact out of the pits as Kurz, our polesitter, was heading into his pitbox.

Most of the trucks involved have been to pit road and made their way back to the track on the lead lap, Ryan Wayne, Clayton Fogg, and Joshua Hawkins have all gone behind the wall and ended their days.

For those wondering about Wayne, we missed what happened to him. As the wreck was occurring, Clayton Fogg slid back up the racetrack and Wayne ran straight through him.
