    Lap 19: Johnston leads off of turn 2, he retains that lead for the rest of the lap.

    Lap 20: Brandon Chrasta comes off of pit road and separates the rest of the pack from the leaders Johnston, Peavy, Spencer, and Joyce. They now have a one second lead.

    Lap 28: And another crash! Jon Peterson gets into Ryan DeCosta and Cody Llamas! They spin around in turn 4!

    Forgot to mention that this race will have some jumps in it. Because of so many short stints that involved two car spins (like what happened between Craigo and English), and my schedule for tonight, I had to shorten the broadcast.


    Let's jump ahead to lap 60...

    Lap 60: James Gegner and Darren Ingram look like the dominant forces right now, they've led almost every lap since lap 30.

    Caution #6: The slow car of Joshua Michaels turned directly into Tim Kunkel launching him into the catchfence. Kunkel's car hit the fence, and landed on the wall, sending him back into the fence. The #15 Chevrolet landed on its wheels in the racing groove, and Brandon Chrasta plowed into the rear of the car. Red flag is out to clear debris in Motegi.

    62JC: "Tell the #60 that Ill have a few choice words for him post-race!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    62JC: "What is it with the #3 car and causing people to go flying into the fucking fence?! It happened to me in 2014, and now It happened here!"
    62CC: "Maybe a curse? I just hope that guy was parked for that...."
    62JC: "Anyways, I have a few choice words for English....." *Heads on over English's location for a few "choice words"*

    Caution #10: Six drivers on the lead lap and only 10 left on track, as Curtain retires, with 51 laps to go. Series officials have decided to stick it out in hopes that the small amount of cars will reduce the amount of accidents.

    1. Gegner
    2. Ingram
    3. Spencer
    4. Durbin
    5. Hooper Sr.
    6. Burr
    7. O'Reilly - 1L
    8. Karda -1L

    For clarification @jacobc62, Joshua Michaels (Vehicle #3) also crashed out in that accident. Further action may be taken.

    Jumping ahead to lap 101 now...

    Lap 101: James Gegner still leads with 30 laps to go. Darren Ingram sits just .2 seconds back. The question now is whether he's just running conservatively, or if he just can't catch Gegner.

    Lap 108: Gegner and Ingram catch some drivers who have really stuck this one out. Merzlak and Karda's days seemed to be done early, but with so many incidents and the fact that only 9 drivers are still on track, they will score a top 10 finish today.
