I just starting watching the Truck race to see the overtime finish.

Creed won the 1st 2 heats. Moffitt is the current leader waiting for the restart.

Moffit and Creed fought for the lead in the OT finish, with Moffitt winning the race. Moffit locked himself into the championship race at Phoenix.

I'm not doing so great today following the races.

The X=Race is already 20 laps in with a competition caution coming at lap 25. 2 yellows in the first 16 laps. Briscoe is the leader at the Comp. caution with a few beat up cars.

In the truck race, Mofitt's teammate Zane Smith drove underneath and Mofitt came down to block.......... too late. Smith spun. Not a happy camper during post race interview...

Tempers get short in the playoffs and both are trying to win. Also Moffit was going for his first win this year and the win puts him in the final.

Green flag stops are all but finished. One car (Sieg) ahead of Briscoe needs to stop.

44 laps to go and a spin for yellow! Sieg will pit from the lead and Briscoe takes over when he does.

Went for the restart and it was waved off for a car leaking lifeblood on the track.
38 to go waiting for green.

Oh boy! After the restart, a caution for Burton spinning. After that restart a wreck with Aldredo and Herbst. Alfredo is upside down and we're under a red flag. Allgaier also involved.

Got car back on it's wheels ans Alfredo climbs out. His car slid on the driver's side for a while before rolling over to stop on the roof. Window net kept his arms inside.
