    "So the car is good for 10 laps then just falls off a f****** cliff. This is a perfect analogy of how this season has gone."

    Lap 139: O'Reilly has the lead down under 2 seconds now as he slowly gains on the 66. The 3 team doing the impossible right now, coming from a lap down to now closing in for the race lead. Just over 60 laps remain and pit stops should start coming within the next few laps.

    Lap 140: Anthony Curtain on new tires gets 1 of his laps back, driving around race leader Ahlbrand. The 66 with just a 1.8 second lead and a 1 car buffer over the 3 machine. O'Reilly may be able to get to him before pit stops if we stay green.

    Lap 141: Side by side for 3rd into turn 1. Ingram has run down the 41 and is now trying to take that spot away. He powers up off the bottom and clears the 41. They are 7 seconds behind the 66 so more than likely a caution or a very fast pit stop will be needed to make up that time. The rest of the top 10 still unchanged.

    Lap 143: Ahlbrand works around the outside of Sean English to put the 31 a lap down. O'Reilly still closing in has the lead down to 1.2 seconds. Next up for the leader is a trio of Fords, Zumwalt, Missimer, and Blanford.

    Lap 145: Stops begin for the leaders as Zachary Scott starts us off pitting from the 5th position. Nixon, Lennox, Grube, Harris, and English also in on this lap.

    Lap 146: Farrell, Lounsberry, Flaitz, Webster, Slates, Caudill, Towianski, Blanford, and Issacs are the next batch of cars to stop.

    Lap 147: Everett, Ingram, Craigo, Busch, Llamas, and Jordan now to pit road. A lot of the leaders staying out so those that pitted early will be gaining almost a second a lap every time the front runners pass pit road.

    Lap 148: No takers that time by and the lead is now just 8 tenths of a second as Ahlbrand works underneath the 21 into turn 1. Zumwalt from leading to a lap down as O'Reilly tries to do the opposite, going from a lap down to leading. He is there just 6 tenths now at the line.

    Lap 149: Mahoney gives up 3rd to come in. He is the only driver down pit road this lap. O'Reilly now just 4 tenths off the rear bumper of the 66 as we have just over 50 to go. It's money time for the pit crews for the top 2 drivers.

    Lap 150: A bunch of cars to pit road including our leaders. Joyce, Missimer, Ahlbrand, Zumwalt, O'Reilly, Hooper, Laryson, Kunkel, and Coleman to pit road. That should be just about everyone on track.

    Lap 151: Batson and DesRosiers to pit road to complete the cycle. Ahlbrand beat O'Reilly off pit road and he holds onto the lead.

    Lap 152: O'Reilly may have been beat off pit road but he is right on the rear bumper of the 66 as they get back up to speed. Scott comes out in 3rd just 3.5 back of the top 2 after pitting several laps early. Ingram comes out in 4th, Mahoney 5th, Nixon 6th, Hooper 7th, Lennox 8th, Slates 9th, and Grube 10th.

    Lap 156: O'Reilly all over the rear bumper of Ahlbrand into turn 1. He makes his move to the inside. Side by side for the lead down the back. Through 3 and 4 O'Reilly has the edge at the line. New leader, #3.

    Good day ruined by NASCAR's lack of calling debris. Damnit. This hurts.

    Lap 157: Ahlbrand not giving up works the high line to perfection in turns 1 and 2 will take back the lead. They are not putting down fast laps racing like this and lapped cars are closing in on them. As we run there are 25 cars on the lead lap. Isaacs the first car 1 lap down in 26th and he is closing quick on the top 2. Anthony Curtain pitting way before anyone else has leaped up to 16th and is now fighting with Tim Kunkel. Towianski just in front of those 2 so some great effort by those 2 teams.

    Lap 162: Ahlbrand tries to go around Blanford on the inside but can't get it done and O'Reilly goes top shelf and pulls even with the 66 off turn 2. Into 3 and O'Reilly goes a bit too high. Ahlbrand has the edge down the front and continues to lead it. Zumwalt has moved up to their rear bumpers' as the first car 1 lap down. He has Farrell right with him. Further back Shane Lennox on the move since the pit stops, he takes away 6th from Nixon in turn 4.

    Lap 166: O'Reilly going left and right all over the back of the 66 but can't complete the pass. Now Zumwalt gets to his right rear and here comes Scott out of nowhere to make it 3 wide into turn 1! O'Reilly backs out and loses 2nd. Zumwalt rim riding in the 21 flies by the leader as well and gets back on the lead lap.

    Lap 167: Scott now right on the rear bumper of the 66 and now we are under yellow. Officials reporting debris off the 39 car. Looks like some of the repair work on the front of that car has let go. This is going to make things very interesting. Scott was the fastest car of the top 3 but the fastest car on track was Lennox. He had closed in to 5.5 seconds of the leaders just before the yellow. He was 12.3 seconds behind after pit stops so the 18 car was hauling.

    Lap 168: Anthony Curtain from 13th is the only driver to hit pit road. He will restart the last car on the lead lap in 26th. Ahlbrand will bring us back to the green flag.

    Harris: We need to get our crap together. Why in the absolute hell did we fall so far back from 8th on that pit stall?
    CC (Harris' Dad): We messed that up, son. Work your way to the front and do the best you can.
    Harris: Fine, I'll have to haul my ass then.
    CC: Green flag, go get them, and stay quiet on the radio unless it's necessary.
    Harris: 10-4.

    Lap 172: Ahlbrand with a decent jump but Farrell stays with him into turn 1. Scott way up out of the groove and O'Reilly makes it 3 wide. Scott just brushes the wall off of 2 as we have several 3 wide battles going into turn 3. Ahlbrand holds the lead but Farrell is still racing him hard.

    Lap 173: Farrell edges ahead and gets back on the lead lap. O'Reilly almost had 2nd back but Scott is storming back flying around the outside. Mahoney takes 4th from Ingram in turn 3. Lennox still 6th, Grube now 7th, Nixon 8th, Hooper 9th, and Laryson 10th.

    Lap 175: Farrell has cleared the 66 and now Scott comes right up to the rear bumper of the Peavey Ford. He looks high in 3 and 4 but loses ground and will have to close back in.

    Lap 176: Ingram pinned in behind lapped cars loses a spot to Lennox and now Grube is all over him. Up front here goes Scott for the lead into turn 1! Ahlbrand with a half car ahead into turn 3. Scott hooks the yellow line and will roll around the bottom to take the lead off of 4.

    Lap 179: Scott pulling away from Ahlbrand already. He has a half second on the 66. O'Reilly right there in 3rd with Mahoney just behind in 4th. Grube has gotten around Ingram for 6th and Tim Kunkel trying to race back to the front is up to 8th. Just over 20 laps to go at Richmond.

    Lap 180: Lennox shot out of a cannon off turn 4 and the 18 is around Mahoney for 4th and to the inside of O'Reilly into turn 1 for 3rd. They race side by side into 3. Lennox really quick through the center and he easily clears off of 4 to take over 3rd. Lennox picking up right were he left off before the yellow.

    Lap 181: Scott now going to try and get around Farrell to give him clear track. He is out to a 1 second lead. Behind him Lennox is making a move for 2nd into turn 3. Lennox has got it off of 4. Further back Kunkel now to 7th getting around Ingram. The B&T Motorsports cars moving forward late in the race.

    Lap 183: 9 tenths is the lead for Scott as he fails to get around Farrell. They look pretty evenly matched but Scott may be better is he could get clean air on the nose. Lennox about a tenth quicker starting to close in.

    Lap 184: Scott tries again in turn 1 to get around the 26. He almost clears him off of 2 but Farrell is really good off the corners and powers back around. Lennox reeling in the 20, just 6 tenths between the top 2. Ahlbrand still 3rd but now 1.4 seconds behind.

    Lap 186: Still side by side between Scott and Farrell. Scott has him cleared finally going into turn 1. Farrell now packs it in and pulls even on the outside. Farrell grabs the throttle and will just shoot back around and clear the leader off of 2. Lennox now just a few car lengths back with 15 to go.

    Lap 187: Lennox is there into turn 1. He bobbles and slides up the track. Scott pulls away by 3 car lengths down the back. No pressure for the top 2 as they have over half a straightaway on 3rd place.

    Lap 188: Scott back on the rear bumper of Farrell as Lennox tries to close back in. All 3 cars match times with 12 to go. Ahlbrand now 2 seconds behind the leaders.
