the F-150. The one with the high-strength military-grade, aluminum-alloy body bolted
to a high-strength steel frame. And guess what? It made the strongest statement any
truck can make. It pulled a 5-star safety rating… On all sides… For every cab configuration.
‘Cuz when they say military-grade, they mean: “Battle tested.” This is the Ford
F-150. And every other truck is history. [12:34:31 PM] I jumped at the chance to take the DNA test
through Ancestry and my results ended up being African, European and Asian. It was great
because it confirmed what I knew in my gut with a little surprise. Ancestry helped give
me a sense of identity. That they and their families would get the benefits and support
they earned. We fight for all veterans so that promise is kept. Dav. For help, visit
dav.org. I’m just a guy who wants to buy that truck. And I’m just a guy who wants to sell

the truck I want. And because we’re a TrueCar certified dealership, I already know the truck
he wants. So we’re on the same page before he even gets here.

historic day in racing, new dash for cash, welcome to XFINITY series it’s the Fitzgerald
glider 300 on a picture perfect day. Two heats and then the main helping us call the action
one special driver, Brad keselowski our guest analyst. He knows Bristol pretty well. Two
wins in the XFINITY series and two wins in the sprint cup series and he drives the two
car and this is his second appearance on our show. And will you see in in just a moment
on a two box. Did dash to the booth to call the action. [12:36:33 PM] Boys, you look dashing today.
>>That’s a nice line. You know, racing is tight here at Bristol. Brad cut it close getting
to the booth but you made it. You grew up racing on short tra how cool for you to see
a short track playing out on this stage.>>Bristol is the ultimate short track, you
think of the high banking tracks where you’re on edge the entire race, all kinds of great
race tracks, short tracks and then you got Bristol which is the granddaddy of them all.
Talk about a tough short track this is tough as it gets. You will run on the bottom and
on the edge all the way around for about five to ten laps and then run all the W P dpens
against the wall. A really tough short track. They’re in for a challenge.
>>You talk about sliding and slipping all over the place what do you need to do well
to run well.>>The biggest challenge is most of the speed
is right up against the wall and if you miss the groove by this much, up hit the marbles
and probably the wall.>>We got two heats and ain how do you manage
the heat?>>You got XFINITY regulars trying for the
dash for cash it’s $100,000 they got to go for it.
>>Does patience work here?>>Sometimes, not really.
>>It’s about time for heat one here at Bristol motor speedway let’s go track side and get
the command of fire engine.>>Now for the most famous words in motor
sports. Please welcome grand Marshall Robert Fitzgerald.
>>Drivers, start your engines. [12:38:33 PM] .
>>It’s a new format but the same old Bristol. The engines have fired, heat one when we continue
on FS1. I guarantee, I won’t give you a random bag of food that came out of a microwave.
I guarantee to give you an actual meal with all the fixin’s. After you guarantee to give
me five bucks a’course. I’m running’ a business here! Colonel quality, guaranteed. [12:40:42 PM] 28 1a
>>>It is the first official short track race of the year for the NASCAR XFINITY series.
Live on FS1. The weather is perfect 64 degrees not a cloud in the sky. Track tip is 96 and
will continue to cmb.>>We’re doing racing short track style. Darrell
Wallace in eight position in this first heat. Do you copy, it’s Mike in the FS1 booth.
>>Hey buddy I got you.>>Man you’re looking good with that UT helmet
on. The heat is here. Time to go dash for cash are you ready friend?
>>Yeah I got to be with this helmet on. Being Kelvin on this one. Go balls.
>>That’s right a little home cooking there. What will be your challenge and agenda to
race up for one of those dash for cash spots. [12:42:46 PM]>>We got to be really skma smart about it.
Guys gave me a good Ford mustang that made a lot of improvements so we got to settle
in. We still got the main event after this. So we’ll just have some fun today and give
it a good shot and see if we can put ourselves in a spot for $100,000. Got to make the most
of this opportunity now.>>Great stuff. What I want to know is how
do you find the balance between patience and aggression. What might we see you do if you
have a shot at it in the last lap.>>Yeah, this time $100 grand on the line,
anything can happen. We got to see what everybody else does, let the knuckle heads get out of
the way and make the most of it.>>Thanks for that break and good luck today.
We want to the see you race for that $100,000, let’s see what you got.
>>All right thank you. Have a good day as well.
>>It is a special day. What’s up Chris.>>It’s a beautiful day pittlane. Brendan
Poole is going to race seventh. He’s
focused on the XFINITY series regular and the dash for cash. He’s got one thing on his
mind that’s $100,000.>>So many questions here, how aggressive
will the drivers be in this first heat.>>19-year-old Erik Jones grew up running
the short tracks in Michigan he’s familiar with heat and a main. This is nothing new
to him. It. His strategy won’t be different he will start frome in the heat and he says
protect the car, get a good starting spot for the main, and go racing. [12:44:57 PM]>>He’s got good drivers behind him. On the
it front row with him heat one Kyle Larson and behind him the all-time winner, Kyle Busch
with eight victories here. Listen in to team 42. We’ll try to get you up there in line
quick as we can here. Try to keep the fenders clean. We got 200 miles to focus, let’s just
be smart.>>Well, you know, any time you have a plan
and you’re sure it’s something in NASCAR sometimes it flops around on you. Erik’s on the bottom.
I like that decision early. Erik’s got the choice. He can get the jump. Get maybe Larson
clear by the time they get to the corner. You comfortable with that here they come
>>XFINITY series here we go. 50 laps to set up the inside. Roll on the main. Erik Jones
around turn one.>>Looks like it’s a great side by side battle
tore second with Jones in the lead.>>He rushed it through the center. Wanted
to clear Larson. It made him push off. E. That’s the delicate balance not getting too
much speed on exit. Zpl look at the fox box, top of your screen. Drivers are highlighted
in red. Ones eligible to move on and compete for the dash for cash in the main. Erik Jones
leading. Justin Allgaier fourth and not far behind them. Darrell Wallace, Jr. Inside Ross
Chastain. This is good into the corner.>>Ross Chastain has been looking for a forward
for this dash for cash. We’ve seen steady speed and improvement from that 4 car and
Ross was looking for a chance to race the dash for cash. There’s couple spots out of
position. They got to settle it and try to get the others. [12:47:01 PM] You’re probably asking why is he fighting,
it’s 50 laps, well this is the transfer spot. See what happens when it gets up into the
corner, too high. So easy to do that.>>Make sure you clean em off.
>>Here’s a look at what happened. Darrell Wallace, Jr. Inside the red 4 of Ross Chastain
gets up out of the groove.>>How much does this place tempt you to do
that, just drive deeper, if I get further I can pass this guy.
>>Yeah the high land has a lot of speed but to make the most of it, you have to roll the
gas and get off the brake and do all those things. If not this is what happens. You know
how talented Chastain is he used to drive for you?
>>Yes and he’s done a really good job. This is a team that has the most funding in the
garage and not known for having the most funding in the garage and he’s making the most opportunity
despite that.>>>Now we’re in the race we’re only ten laps
in and they’re already starting to climb up the track. Sometimes it takes a different
set up to run up top than it does on the bottom. I’m sure they will mark the adjustment on
the car.>>Is it stressful handling this.
>>I don’t many he if it is stressful because les of the heacan’t change tires in this 50
laps, it goes by so quick. [12:49:07 PM]>>11 of 50 complete. 12 on the board. Erik
Jones has LED efrp one of them. Battle for position, Elliot Sadler who struggled in qualifying
trying to work inside Brennan Poole to get up to eight. Elliot a two-time winner here
at XFINITY series.>>All clear.
>>There’s what you want to the hear, all clear. Look at Kyle Busch trying to get around
Larson.>>Don’t you feel good if you’re Erik Jones.
Because you know these cup guys, they’re thinking about one thing, being ready to go on the
200 lap main. You know they’re not going to aggravate you too much for a position.
>>You do?>>Am I right?
>>I don’t me about all that. We’re trying to figure out it you’re Kyle Busch or Kyle
Larson how we win this main. That’s what it is all about those dpies. Those guys.
>>Right now it’s NASCAR coming up it’s a double header begi3:30. And braves tonight.
They got their first win of the year last night.
>>Yeah they got beat seven times in a row after the marlins but not after last night,
got our first win of the year.>>If these guys settled in, how do you feel
17ps complete.>>I don’t want to settle if if I’m Kyle Larson
or Kyle Busch I want to make this fast and win this heat race.
>>Settling in, did you say, I don’t think Kyle Busch understands that term of thinking.
They can make a minor adjustment after this heat. You want to give that car all you got.
It you are running around 90%. You’re not going to get the info to the crew chief that
you need.>>Almost half way through our opening heat,
Erik Jones LED every lap. [12:51:15 PM] Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson. Justin Allgaier and
Brandon Jones top five here at Bristol. Uh, hello Geico?… Yeah, I was just talking about
your Emergency Roadside Service and how it’s available 24/7 and then our car overheated…
What are the chances? Can you send a tow truck please? Uh, the location? You’re not going
to believe this but it’s um… It’s in a tree. I wish I was joking, mate, but it’s literally
stuck in a tree. (Car horn honking) A chainsaw? No, no, all
we really need is a tow truck. Day or night, Geico’s Emergency Roadside Service is there
for you. Hey America. Meet Jimmy. He just got his license and look at him. He’s already
restoring this beast himself. He gets help from autozone and specialized tools from our
free “Loan-a-tool” program. I can’t wait to see what this kid fixes up next. With our
help you can always fix your car with confidence. Hoods up America. Nice. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ Kyle
Busch, the 2015 Champion! ♪♪ Toyota. Let’s Go Places. [12:53:19 PM]>>>22 laps to go in our opening heat race
here at Bristol, Tennessee. Erik Jones has LED every lap so far, Kyle Larson and Kyle
Busch battling for second in traffic moments ago. When you look at Erik Jones he’s enjoying
thatde out front and Erik Jones working that position behind.
>>In practice in qualifying couldn’t run the top but knew they would have to run the
top in this heat. Problem with Kyle Busch trying to pass Kyle Larson you can never run
any higher than Larson because he’s always rim riding when available. So Kyle trying
to figure out another way around Kyle Larson and that’s not easy.
>>Those top two starting to gain ground on Erik Jones. 19 to go. Maybe a little bit contact
there. Looks like back of Kyle Larson just a little bit loose entering the corner. They’re
fighting the handling on the high lane. Really side ways on turn four.
>>The other driver right now in position to move on and run for the dash for cash beyond
Erik Jones would be Justin Allgaier but Brandon Jones hanging behind him. And this thing has
been really tight. Allgaier has put distance between himself and Brandon Jones.
>>Jones has a fast car but got hung up on that last traffic we saw Kyle Busch trying
to move up on Kyle Larson. It didn’t go well for Brandon Jones and that allow the Justin
Allgaier to pull away from him. Allgaier has a really good run right now. Last time by
he was the fastest car on the track.>>Allgaier won here in 2010. It was a 1-2
finish for team penske.>>Not a good feeling. 18 seems to be the
fastest car here. [12:55:21 PM] Be interesting to see if he keeps his patience
for the next 14 laps to finish this heat.>>I think those guys are learning. They’re
getting ready for the main later. Erik Jones is right where he wants to be obviously. I
think Kyle Larson has a slower car than Kyle Busch so he knows he will have to have an
adjustment or two before the main. These guys are looking forward to the main and trying
to figure out what it takes to win that.>>And they’re racing their rear ends off
at the same time.>>I think this thing has gone exactly as
Erik Jones would have hope ds hoped. He jumped out front from the start and has had no threat
from the two guys behind him. Even if he did he has a lot of separation back to the other
guys when you talk about eligibility for dash for cash. So Jones, on cruise control for
the moment with 11 laps to go.>>Another guy on cruise is Justin Allgaier.
Our second dash for cash guy. This is a really smooth race for him, preparing him to go after
that $100,000 in the main.>>This team w$100,000 two years with Reagan
Smith behind the wheel at Dover and Indianapolis.>>I saw Reagan Smith say on Twitter I love
the format. So much buzz in Bristol about the heats we’re having here in the XFINITY
series. This is a good way to over come a poor qualifying effort and gain track position.
Sadler’s qualifying run wasn’t what he expected yet he’s able to move up. He just passed Dakota
Armstrong. He’s taking advantage of this heat to get a better spot in the main. [12:57:23 PM]>>You know, I want to keep updating the rules
of this heat race. When I look right now, Erik Jones has lapped all but the top ten
drivers. No matter how many laps you’re down when we get to the main everyone starts on
a an equal lap. You start the main on equal laps with everyone else.
>>Watching Erik Jones on 50 lap heat putting drivers down. It reminds me how difficult
this track is. No matter how good your car is you are always working in and around other
vehicles.>>Great point. That’s one of the things about
the heat race that makes it so much different is you will be able to get that lap back and
brand new tires and an adjustment to your car and get a ham sandwich if you want in
between. That’s going to really change the way this race plays out later today.
>>You know the lap cars the more of them you catch the better they get. That makes
it more difficult. Especially when it comes to picking your lane which way you want to
pass a car. Great job laying over out of Erik Jones’s way there. In the main that won’t
be easy. That really mixes things up.>>Tws to go in the opening heat. Erik Jones
has LED every lap. Will get the white flag this time around. Should remind you, there
is no over time in the heats. Just in the main. So that won’t be a factor today in these
two 50-lap shootouts. Jones half lap away from locking in pole position in the main.
Fastest qualifier. Leads every latch in the heat. Leads every lap in the heat. Great start
to the day for Erik Jones.>>We’re going to say that was a huge success
for Jones. [12:59:24 PM] And also Justin Allgaier.
>>One of the keys as well here is by winning this heat get automatic lane choice for later.
>>Erik Jones, Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch, Justin Allgaier, Brandon Jones. Top five in heat
one. Jones and Allgaier running for the XFINITY series had the top two spots in this opening
heat which means they are dash for cash eligible. When we get set for the main later on all
right here on FS1. I guarantee, I won’t give you a random bag of food that came out of
a microwave. I guarantee to give you an actual meal with all the fixin’s. After you guarantee
to give me five bucks a’course. I’m running’ a business here! Colonel quality, guaranteed.

today there’s Harvoni. A revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis
C. Harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who’ve had no prior treatment. It’s
the one and only cure that’s one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. Certain patients… Can
be cured with just 8 weeks of Harvoni. With Harvoni, there’s no interferon and there are
no complex regimens. Tell your doctor if you have other liver or kidney problems, HIV,
or other medical conditions, and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements.
Taking amiodarone with Harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. Common
side effects of Harvoni may include tiredness, headache and weakness. I am ready to put Hep
C behind me. I am ready to be cured. Are you ready? Ask your Hep C specialist if Harvoni
is right for you. [1:06:13 PM] To.
>>>What I would do with $100,000 I would probably pass some off to my dad.
>>I just want to take home the hundred grand and go celebrate afterwards.
>>You heard from Erik Jones, he is in the running for $100,000, he just won the first
heat race, LED all 50 laps, Justin Allgaier advancing as well. Both gentlemen qualify
for the dash for cash dough that is on the line today. We are in the midst of two heat
races. The first time in XFINITY series history. Today is the debut of the dash for cash program
at Bristol motor speedway. We have our first heat winner standing by.
>>Mission accomplished. Qualified for dash for cash. You told me before hand protect
the car and protect your position, you were able to do both of those, how was the car
as you look ahead to the main.>>We did everything we needed to. It was
good, actually better than I thought it would be. Kind of got moved to the top and was pretty
happy overall. We rolled the center really good which is what kept us out front. We are
really happy with it. Nice to start qualifying up front. Hopefully can keep it up there fo200
more laps.>>Start at first finish first.
>>When you look at Justin Allgaier did you struggle more than expected.
>>Our helmet is heavy and car tighter than we wanted it to be. We wanted to make sure
we were consistent and make it into the dash for cash. We did that. Now we can go to work
and do a little bit better. I feel like on the bottom and through traffic is where we
excelled through the heat race. Can’t thank XFINITY heat race for all they do to have
this race here. Look forward to 200 laps to go.
>>Won here six years ago this one could pay a whole lot more money. [1:08:16 PM]>>Kyle Busch do you feel good about the car?
Took pretty big swings, and adjustments during the break.
>>I think we’re okay. We had a harder heat race, 18 was quite a bit faster than I was,
but took big swings to tighten me up. I was really loose. So once we get the rear secured
on exit I could probably start moving around I was trying to hold him off much as I could.
I knew he wasn’t going to pressure me a ton with it. Not meaning a whole lot for the cup
guys in this race. But yeah he’s, I think the 18 is definitely the best. I think a couple
of adjustments and our Chevy should be pretty good.
>>Thanks. Daniel.>>Thanks so much. You can follow along
heat number two next. [1:10:35 PM] Sir, this alien life form is growing at an
alarming rate. Growing fast, you say? We can’t contain it any long… Oh! You know, that
reminds me of how Geico’s been the fastest-growing auto insurer for over 10 years straight. Over

Geico. Expect great savings and a whole lot more.
>>>Here’s the lineup for game number one —
>>>We head back to the booth. Guys, it was Erik Jones who hit home run in heat one, if
you will.>>Yeah one down what did you think.
>>I think it worked out perfectly for the man with the plan.
>>We got another heat race to go. You know I’m thinking about these heats and I remember
when you have heat races you always have one that’s calm and one that’s not calm. I’m looking
at this going, hmmm, look out.>>I think it’s a set up for the guys that
qualify for dash for cash. [1:12:38 PM] Scl I love that, we’ll have Daniel Suarez
up front. A lot of guys want to the Jones Justin Allgaier and Erik Jones with Daniel
Suarez if things go as he plans to be part of this race.
>>Ty Dillon in this heat. You got Blake cook. Jeff Burton. They could put themselves in
position for a hundred grand.>>And it won’t take much. Daniel Suarez already
hit the wall we don’t know how damaged his car is. We have a lot of cars with a dprat
shot. Great shot.>>The other driver to keep an eye on Joey
Logano. He LED all 300 laps here a year ago. Just turn this little knob on the dash and
it helps steer your trailer exactly where you want it to go. It’s just one more bit
of brilliance you can’t get on any other truck. Freakish. This is the Ford F-150. And every
other truck is history I pledge allegiance to the flag uniting all Kentucky Fried Chicken

>>Win that’s all we want to do.>>I definitely think we can do it. I think
it’s going to be a lot of fun and everybody’s excited it.
>>They thought of everything when it comes to the dash for cash. You win two $100,000
prizes equal to a win which means you’ll be in the chase come September.
>>You win money, get a berth in the chase it’s all about the dash for cash.
>>Let’s get a few reports often the drivers.>>Austin Dillon, first one clean second one
rather exciting, he told me he was thinking the same thing. They want a front row for
starting spot in the main later. Their car was great. Felt like they were one of the
top three cars here today in Bristol.>Blake was quickest yesterday in qualifying. Just
over adjusted. This team they were brand new. [1:23:43 PM] That $100,000 would go a long way. Especially
since they signed paperwork for a new shop this week.
>>Been a rocky week for Daniel Suarez. His car wasn’t where his team wanted during practice.
And in quality fieing he got into the wall. Good news is the damage was minimal and cosmetic.
Koch rolls off seven. Third in line of this heat of those drivers trying Vance on el eligible
for the dash for cash.>>He’s going to have a keen eye on Austin
Dillon.>>I’m curious about the 19 and if the damage
is truly cosmetic. They’re not going to the back. They must not have done anything it
to it. We’re going to find out if it’s okay or not.
>>You said he won a hundred grand last fall and was second last spring to Joey Logano.
So S around this trark really well.>>Austin Dillon chooses the second of two
50-lap heats under way at Bristol.>>What a start by Dillon.
>>How about Logano wasting no time.>>Ty Dillon is going to be able to clear
Daniel Suarez and kbrab that third spot. [1:25:49 PM] Gives him a cushion over Blake can Koch who
is riding in the back half of the top ten.>>Looks like Daniel spun his tires on the
high lane. Really easy to do that. These are the tire that’s they qualify on. They pick
up a lot of debris. That stays with tires. Most of the time after a pit stop you have
new tires that don’t have all that debris. If it’s easier to restart.
>>That’s one thing about him, Brad, he’s not had good retarts this season. Oh, problems
for Logano.>>Looks like he was completely off the pace
offn two.>>Yeah car must have stepped out on him a
little bit.>>Good move by Dillon to gra be that position.
>>Offside gear.>>Offside gear copy.
>>That’s not what you want to hear. If it pops out of gear once it’s going to do it
again.>>How cool to know the car is racing and
know it’s a feature. We got to update him on the terminology.
>>You think he’ll start driving maybe with one zbland boy, Michael this track is hard
enough to drive with two hands, can’t imagine having to drive with one handed and hold the
gear shifter in.>>Not what you want the to hear if you’re
crew chief.>>What would a Bunge cord do, once he gets
it in high gear he could hook it around the shifter and it will hold it in. You can only
make minor adjustments as far as wedge track bar because they’re treating the main as an
extension of the heat. But I think Joey Logano could pate bungee cord in his driver’s uniform
pocket.>>He could pull that off himself. [1:27:51 PM]>>Oh, those things never happen.
>>Of course they don’t.>>Are you giving away secrets.
>>All I do is talk about the secrets, I don’t have any any more.
>>Look at the way Logano is able to keep pace with Ty Dillon, brotherin is driving
away, Logano a maybe even faster than Ty.>>The top two drivers in this heat eligible
for XFINITY series points move on to the main and they join Erik Jones and Justin Allgaier
as drivers going for the $100,000 dash for cash bonus. Right now it would be Ty Dillon
and Daniel Suarez who are running second and fourth respectively and you see them highlighted
top of your screen. We remind you tomorrow our weekend continues from thunder valley
12:30 eastern time on fox. Eighth race of the year for NASCAR XFINITY race.
>>What a start to the season we’ve had. Such great action. Close finishes. And some dominance
by Kyle Busch lately.>>And if things don’t go your way Kyle you’re
locker roomed into the playoffs.>>You know coming to Bristol it’s always
intimidating and scary because you know anything can happen to you. Doesn’t have to be your
fault. Could get caught in a wreck or tore up but when you have a win early in the season
you can racele Bristol aggressively. That’s what I’m going to do tomorrow.
>>Speaking of aggressive. Kevin Harvick getting after Aric almirola.
>>This is what we see from Harvick he’s so good understanding his tires and what the
car needs and appears he’s really going strong.>>Surprised to see Kevin Harvick starting
sixth in this heat. He got it all wrong in qualifying. Crew chief just wanted to go for
pole. Got the car way too loose. [1:29:51 PM] Right now that track is starting to come up
high.>>Those junior motor sports cars last week
at Texas had what it took on the long run. I think that’s something you’re going to have
to have in the main a little bit later today. You see J.J. Yeley headsing to pit row. Going
to lose some laps but everybody goes back to level playing field. Harvick able to get
around almirola.>>Harvick wasn’t clear he just took that
spot. You just kind of lean on a guy and say hey look if you don’t let me in we’re both
going to wreck and Aric saw that and said all right let’s get to the main.
>>How long does it take to get over it for cutting you off. Do you have to forget it
or does it stick with you.>>I think it’s different for every driver.
For me it depends on the situation. Lap or two early, Aric got loose and that’s how Kevin
got to him. You tend to be more forgiving you if it is lap traffic, you get mad.
>>You took something from me you didn’t deserve and I’m going to get it back. That seems to
be the sentiment.>>Your blood pressure spikes how many times
would you say on 500 laps.>>It your car is really fast it doesn’t spike
at all. I see 22 knowing he is faster than the 3. He is trying to work different grooves.
He has a dime on in the corner. Comes down the banking on the exit, especially on 3 and
4, trying to get the run, keep the pressure on Ty and maybe force a mistake.
>>On a short track we talk about the balance of patient especially and aggression you push
the go button when is the go button. [1:32:04 PM]>>I don’t think you can wait too long. This
is a 200 lap main. Laps at Bristol go by in 15 seconds. It takes no time to run by. If
you spend the whole race being patient if you’re not in the lead you’re not going to
get there.>>This is one fast pizza machine. Harvick
knows he has the machine he can win the main with this afternoon. Be interesting to see
if he decides to use that slide job like the next spot like with almirola.
>>And Harvick is a perfect example, his car has great long run speed. Means he needs to
get these spots right now in this heat. He won’t have a chance to do it in the main.
He’ll have a couple long runs in the main but takes him some time for the long run’
to come in. He’s really fast. He’s got to get these spots right now. Bably not going
to get them in this race.>>Nobody’s going to get it in the top. Kevin’scaught
traffic. We’ll see how versatile that set up is, if he’s able to go to the bottom and
make that move.>>He’s not the only one caught up in traffic.
Look at Austin Dillon in front. Ty in second his younger brother. Joey Logano is there.
You could almost throw a blanket over those top five. Daniel Suarez and Harvick closing
in as well. Great racing as we pass half way in our second heat at Bristol.
>>Only one second separates the top five. That’s really close racing with tracks like
Bristol top speed is about 140 miles an hour.>>Where you finish this heat is where you
line up in the main. Drivers in heat two will make up the outside lane later on today. [1:34:05 PM] Through the traffic Austin Dillon able to
pull away from his younger brother just a bet.
>>Just his younger brother by a bit and able to pull away by a bit. What a great run for
the dillons up front. We saw the speed Austin needed to win late at California. Ty has had
a bit of a trouble. Had a tire problem in Texas. Good to see the speed coming to Bristol
as well.>>Harvick is right there, god, he’s fast.
He’s trying to catch any little break he can to get by these guys. Haven’t caught one yet.
He’s got to keep the pressure on. He’s only got 14 laps.
>>Watch how close Harvick has to run by Suarez. One little wreck by Suarez that makes it tough
here at Bristol.>>He wants Suarez to know that, if you make
mistakes I’m going to wreck you zpl and if you wreck in a heat you can’t go to a back
up. There’s only 20 minutes between the second heat and the main. So if you get in trouble
now it’s going to be a long rest of nd E. Afternoon and you’re not going to have a good
fin ir. Finish.>>Suarez telling Harvick this is the weak
link in the chain, I need to get on him.>>I know my brother used to win race after
race here. Running high in the middle and then down off. Side ways there that’s what
Suarez is doing right now to hold off Harvick.>>Down to 11 laps to go in our second heat
race. Opening one of the day went to Erik Jones. Austin Dillon started on pole has LED
every lap in heat 2. Watch this car hop out a bit. [1:36:05 PM]>>They’re going to hop out aren’t they.
>>When that happens, yes. How about that Larry.
>>With ten laps to go Daniel Suarez is between a rock and hard place, if he gives that spot
up he would still have cushion over Jeb Burton so he could still be in the dash for cash.
>>Yeah but he’s a racer. Racers don’t just give spots up.
>>That’s what I said at the top of the show, go like hell.
>>I said this, we talk about patience and aggression. I think we will go to a whole
new level when the green flag goes to the air in the main. These guys have been fairly
tame for Bristol, right or wrong.>>It’s not over yet.
>>I agree 100%. Also we have some of the best drivers in the world going to be able
to work on their cars and have a conversation with their crew chief and make adjustments
to make these cars faster yet.>>Suarez is driven back up to the bumper
of Logano. Maybe he wants to go on the offense. He’s been playing defense for about 40 laps
see if he goes on offense.>>See 22 slipping up a little bit. Over those
bumps is really difficult. Especially as car falls you off the car slips and slides around.
>>You see off turn two there’s a big patch they put off turn two. Can you feel that.
>>Yeah just like on the freeway you driech over a patch and there’s a bump, same here
except you’re 140 miles an hour and it’s going to slip.
>>And someone’s pushing you. [1:38:19 PM] Yeah.
>>Everything going as planned for Austin Dillon. Started on pole for heat two. Front
row starting position in the main. Erik Jones LED all 50 laps in heat one. Austin Dillon
going to go wire to wire in heat two on the front row with Jones in the main later on
and your dash for cash advancers, Ty Dillon and Daniel Suarez in line for the $100,000.
And now all those crew chiefs in the garage can take a big, deep breath. They know they’ve
made it through the heat. We can line up and go get after it in the main. Now the drivers
that are going to run for $100,000. Erik Jones. Justin Allgaier. Ty Dillon. Daniel Suarez.
One of those fellas are buying dinner somewhere tonight. The Bud Light Party believes in change.
That’s why Bud Light has a new look… …And we want to share it with everyone… Jackpot!

And seriously want the rematch.>>That’s how I feel from time to time.
>>A rematch. Are we going to get in the ring.>>No I don’t think you could take me. I don’t
think anyone can take Austin Dillon in heat two. He was dominating. But said and done
Austin Dillon doesn’t qualify for dash for cash. He’s not an XFINITY series regular,
if you will. It was his little brother Ty Dillon who will advance a lodge with Daniel
Suarez.>>That’s what is neat about this format.
Yeah the dash for cash winner would love to be the same guy celebrating with the race-winning
trophy. But we have a race within the race trying to win the race trying to win that
$100,000 as well.>>Two heats are now in the books. We have
a 200 lap main coming up. But first we go down to the pits to see Matt joakim.
>>Mission complete for Austin Dillon for his heat. Expectations. Jones will take the
outside. You’ll be on the bottom. Will you work a deal to ease in or play it straight
up.>>We’ll see here. We’ll talk about it in
a little bit. That could work. We’ll see. Race Chevy is fast one of the best cars we’ve
had here at Bristol. Looking forward to what’s to come.
>>What do you need tweak on the most?>>I’m getting ready to find out. The whole
field will be out there. I feel we had a pretty good car. It’s not a big swing we need. I
feel our car is pretty competitive right there.>>Good luck.
>>Ty Dillon qualifies for the dash for cash. He had a good car anything you learned that
you could use during the main.>>Just you’re scrambling at the start to
get position our reds cap Chevy fired off really good. Saw an opportunity to take it
and our car held on good. Chasing down Austin seemed he got better later in the run. [1:44:23 PM] I came to him in traffic. When you’re that
close and running a high line and times are so close it’s hard to know exactly what you
want to the do with your race car but we’re proud of what we did with our race car.
>>Thanks.>>Ty Dillon one of four drives who could
win $100,000 today possibly his brother Austin Dillon could win the trophy for this race.
Of course Austin got the victory at auto club speedway. Best finish here for Austin is third.
As we show you results for heat two.>>These were the only drivers that own the
lead lap, that Austin Dillon did not lap. When we go to the main everybody starts with
equal laps zpl.>>Were guys playing chicken a little bit?
>>N’t know if they were playing chicken but doing everything to stay on the lead lap and
continuish high as they possibly could.>>Cautiously aggressive. Not sure driver
kz do both. We’ll see. 200 lap main coming up here on FS1 from Bristol. Stay with us.

>>You started on the front row of the heat and didn’t get off to a good start what happened.
>>I just moved my tires a little bit I don’t know who was behind me but he pushed me to
help to move forward sometimes when you do that you help the guy in front ometimes you
make him spin the tires and that’s what happened. He was trying to push me to go and it was

>>It’s not that bad.>>Trying to get the bad stuff out early.
>>I see that. Trans is definitely going through a transition right now. I feel we probably
should have finished second. Don’t know why it popped out of gear. It didn’t happen again
so that’s a good sign. It’s all about track position right now see where it goes by the

You’re just in time for the main event but quickly let’s look back at the debut for the
dash for cash heat races. Welcome inside the Hollywood hotel. Been a fun day so far. Two
heats in the books. 50 laps apiece. Let’s walk people through it they’re just joining
us, Erik Jones started out front in heat one. Didn’t want to give up the tough spot.
>>It did not take him long in fact 13 minutes to lead all 50 lap for heat one.
>>How about Justin Allgaier for junior motor sports started fourth, continue issued fourth,
enough to advance.>>Got his first career win here at Bristol
in the XFINITY series.>>How about heat two Ty Dillon starting fifth
continueishing second. [1:54:37 PM]>>And there you see him fighting off Joey
Logano in 22 car, Joey finished third. The eyes of Joey he looks concern, the heat race
hadn’t started yet.>>And Daniel Suarez fourth place finish after
batting Kevin Harvick. We mentioned Erik Jones advancing after week one and then this.
>>Okay so it’s a work in progress we know we need to do the decals different next week.
>>Sport red decals on the dash he says it messes with the tear off but NASCAR said you
only need it for the start of the race.>>Jeb Burton was fastest in first round of
qualifying, finished seventh in the heat, will start 14 in the main. What kind of car
do you have to work with.>>We were really tight right there fighting
a loose hand issue all weekend and moving uptight. Up top. We’re really tight to the
center and coming off. Right here we made a lot of adjustments we probably couldn’t
make on race conditionals that’s going to help us out I think we got a top ten car we’re
going to make the best out of it.>>Thanks.
>>Well finish the sixth in his first heat. You said you had to go like hell in the first
heat race. Now we got the main in front of us. What’s the strategy.
>>Now we take 50 lap ofz the race. We got chapter 1 in the books and right now, I’d
love a softer tire, that would be awesome. Heard Kyle Busch talk about how he him and
Kyle Larson battled but he couldn’t pass him. So in the main we’re starting six andgoal
is get guys on restarts when you can. [1:56:42 PM] Hold them off because they’re not going to
pass well right now.>>What would do you with $100,000. A good

>>He knows his fighting too.>>I think I’ve learned you will have to have

that’s what’s going to has to happen. As laps go off intensity will wind up.
>>In that heat race there I thought Kyle Busch was the fastest car. Let’s see if he
can hold them off. He would love twin this race and the dash for cash. I’m not so sure
anyone can hold off Kyle Busch then again he’s starting in fifth.
>>I like row three. Kyle Busch, your teammate, Joey Logano, two drivers that really understand
how to get around this place.>>And add Justin Allgaier to that will is.

>>Erik Jones wants the $100,000 but really wants the trophy. He has his mind set on greener
pastures.>>Absolutely he wants to win the race, get
locked in the chase and can do it all in this main.
>>And the one guy we haven’t mentioned, inside row two, Kyle Larson runner up on three different
occasions but another guy great in practice.>>These talented racers are able to explain
changes they need, adjustments they want, Kyle Larson gets that thing tightened up.
You’re right he could be a real factor.>>Watch someone come through the field, I

NASCAR XFINITY race. Let’s hear from the crew chiefs.
>>Kevin Harvick looks to have the dominant car in heat one. You think he could work through
the traffic with 200 laps now.>>I think the main will help us out a lot.
We’ll have a good car in the long run. Definitely has the speed we want. Looking for the long
race.>>Is this is crew chief for Erik Jones. You
finished runner up to Kyle Busch twice this season. What do you need in your car to get
the extra spot to win this race today?>>Really just another 200 clean laps. Team’s
done a dprat job. We’ve been really happy with it. I think we can do it.
>>And Dillon will start on the front row. There’s a lot of conversation whether you’re
trying to work a deal at the starts to get your man to high side or play it straight
up?>>I think it’s every man for himself right
now. This is the main event here and I think we got a really good car. We had some good
speed in the heat race there, just looking forward to seeing what we got now.

going to have to get aggressive and physical if you want to make a pass. That’s what we’re
going to see later in the day.>>Brad my brother told me to ask you, why
does everyone have biggest spoiler they can get on it.
>>Aero matters everywhere nowadays, that’s part of why you want to be up front. I think
you will see car that’s will stay out in pit cycles because they know that’s what it will
take to get up front and play defense.>>April in those heats we didn’t see the
tires fall off that much. These Goodyear tires have a lot of life in them.
>>Erik Jones the top qualifier of the two heat winners selecting the outside lane, last
minute switch up there. Thought he was going to take the bottom. Will be interesting to
see how it works because keep in mind the original start is further down the track so
sometimes the bottom lane is the better lane.>>And we do treat this as the start of the
race. [2:09:19 PM]>>Yeah and that means Dillon can’t beat Jones
to the line, means he can take advantage of the outside. And he does just that and pulls
away from Dillon.>>Jones Abe to get the top spot. Down low.
42, bright green car is Kyle Larson.>>He’s not supposed to be down low.
>>I don’t think he wants to be down low but it’s working for him. He’s holding. Usually
on a restart you can get away with this for three or four laps and he’s almost clear on
Ty Dillon. He’s going to take it. That’s tight. It. Makes it work off turn two. Harvick starting
in tenth spot hasn’t got anyone so far you look at Justin Allgaier trying to make up
ground down on the bottom.>>Allgaier one of those drivers, running
for the $100,000 bonus slides up into line. He is in front of Joey Logano. Here comes
Kyle Busch working the bottom lane for position.>>He saw Allgaier make it, said I’ll give
that a try. Tried to take it away from Joey Logano wasn’t able to do it.
>>Suarez going to ’til that gap behind him. Going to be hard for Kyle to get back up.
He might get trapped on the bottom.>>Brennan Poole racing around dakoda Armstrong.
I think I saw Poole on the outside wall.>>He had a problem last week in Texas, had
a tire hit the wall, once again, early in the race, really slick up there.
>>Top of three. Nice and easy down here.>>Look at top of three.
>>Inside, inside.>>Kyle got stuck there on the bottom trying
to make a move on the 22 car, actually lost three spots. [2:11:20 PM] Normally you say no big deal he’ll get that
back, this is only a 200 lap race. He’s going to have a tough time fighting out of it.
>>Started fifth and back to ninth. When was the last time we said something like that
about Kyle Busch.>>It’s been a while. Only time he lost position
on the track is when he had a flat tire in California that was on the last lap. But that
car was really impressive in the heat with the speed that it had. He just laid off Kyle
Larson at the end of that 50e67b9. The end of that event. Look at the side skirts how
much do you feel that.>>You feel every bump. It might be a short
track but it beats you up, you don’t have to go 200 miles an hour to get beat up, believe
me, this is a tough, physical race.>>Could that be hurting the handling? Is
it abrupt where it could be loosening the back of the car.
>>Any time the car bottoms out it could be certainly hurting him. Joey hasn’t been able
to get the runs he’s looking for.>>Wow. Power moves.
>>Been impressive since we went green back in the heat.
>>This is a perfect text book Bristol move. Logano gets high. Suarez sees an opening and
jumps on it.>>Got guys running for $100,000. See the
red banner, Daniel Suarez one of those, the guy leading the race in that cat dpory as
well, Erik Jones, 0.3 in front of Austin Dillon as we see battle for eight, Kevin Harvick
and Kyle Busch.>>Kevin got high and gave opportunity to
look on the inside, couldn’t make it work. Now looks like Austin Dillon is closing in
on the leader. There’s battles all over the place.
>>This is not going to last with Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch running 8 and 9 with really
fast race cars, they’re going to start pushing people out of the way and make moves because
they have to. [2:13:23 PM] That’s what it will take to win this race
to get where Erik Jones is. 200 lap main today. 500 laps tomorrow. 12:30 eastern time our
coverage begins on our local fox station.>>Now we’re doing to throw lap traffic into
the equation. This could really slow the momentum and open the door for guys chasing you.
>>Kyle Larson looking for Austin Dillon for second couldn’t make it happen. I always thought
this place is the worse when you talk about a middle grind often a driver you’re never
clear here.>>We used to call it the tetris race track.
What a move by Larson. That’s the move you have to make. Got outside the 2 car and tried
to get the tetris block here I was about to say and gets the squeeze. Not going to be
able to pull it off. He’s able to say if you make one little mistake I will jump over you
and make this pass.>>Right here combined for 13 wins at Bristol
in the XFINITY series. Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick. Making up no ground on the lead.
>>Looks like Austin Dillon is making up some ground on the lead. He’s faster than Jones
right now. They got in traffic, he lost a little bit of ground but made it up quickly.
>>Already 20 laps in. Both of the heats earlier, 50 laps each, went green wire to wire. Haven’t
had an incident so far here at Bristol. Eight cautions in each race here a year ago. How
about this battle, Erik Jones, Elliot Sadler, Brenden all going for it just outside the
top ten.>>Kevin Harvick made that move work and now
will work over Joey Logano. You get your car sticking where Kyle jumps with as you can
make some passes because no one else is running there. [2:15:30 PM] It’s just really hard to make it work. The
track has a lot of grip up top, why all the grip up top? Because the banking has been
ground and taken away.>>Inside, inside, inside.
>>Reagave it some grip.>>Clear high.
>>The guys that won the two races year ago side by side Kyle Busch with the victory in
August and Joey Logano in April. Move the 18 up to 7. Fell back to 9th. Now starting
to reel them in is Kyle Busch winner of four of the last five in 2016.
>>He’s got a little bit of clean race track here. We’re going to see what he has, start
watching the lap times, guys.>>Meanwhile battle for second, black and
red two for Austin Dillon won at California. Kyle Larson. Few cars behind Erik Jones. Who
continues to work traffic inside Matt tiv next week he will be driving the 18, they’ll
be teammates next week, right now Jones trying to put him a lap down.
>>He said it’s tighter than he wants, especially through the center. Said he knows with guys
like Larson, Austin Dillon and Kyle Busch working back there, the cars have to get a
lightning — lot better or will get more difficult.
>>And now Austin Dillon riding Erik Jones hip pocket.
>>I love that.>>That’s classic Bristol. Just working their
way through the traffic. Look at these guys battling for position. LE Kyle Busch has found
his mojo. He’s picking them up and putting them down.
>>He’s tenth faster than anyone on the track and two tenth it’s faster than cars near him. [2:17:35 PM] Does he have enough for the track.
>>Rhythm is such a big deal for any driver coming to motor speedway.
>>Fell to 9th. Back up to 6th. It’s his teammate Erik Jones out front. Ask your doctor if your

>>And tire change for Austin Dillon air pressure change for the 2.
>>The 18 of Kyle Busch center of your screen says it’s pretty good on the bottom but a
little bit snug. Bottom of your screen leader Erik Jones needs drive off just doesn’t have
the lateral grip can’t keep the throttle down.>>And the number one pit stall, big deal.
Kyle Larson holding. And 18 pit crew delivering like their driver did on track plus two for
Kyle Busch. Here’s the reason for caution, watch the 97 of Ryan Ellis.
>>That’s Jeremy clements gets into the left rear of the 97 and around he goes. That’s
a lot of tight traffic and maybe misjudged it a bit did the 51. You could see they’re
three wide. [2:22:07 PM]>>Didn’t do anything wrong but got spun around.
Fortunately he didn’t hit anything and he can continue to battle. Ryan Preece the first
car one lap down under this our first caution of the day. I was beginning to think the yellow
flag was broke. We do have one here at Bristol and Preece gets the first pass. So 41 laps
in. Coming up next MLB double header, blue Jays and red sox, game one of the weekend

>>I’m sorry we can’t include the tigers in our double header. We tried to accommodate
just didn’t work out this weekend.>>We’ve had better days but they’re coming
back again.>>I feel the same about the Atlanta braves.
We’re struggling now but maybe yesterday got us on a roll.
>>The pit performance of those drivers running for the $100,000, Erik Jones the race leader
won the battle. Suarez six. Austin seventh and Justin Allgaier 9th when you talk about
guys eligible for the cash.>>Everyone’s got to save, save, save and
that will get us there.>>Got to keep yourself in good track position
today.>>Larry, Michael and I were talking about
can you go the distance from here sounds like they’re thinking it.
>>I think you can. The fuel window was 150 to 160 laps. [2:24:11 PM] These cautions are going to save a lot. To
think we’re going to run 150 laps caution-free, I’m not sure I could buy into that.
>>I’m with you. I think we’ll see this yellow flag a lot more today. Bubba Wallace caught
speeding on pit row. Tough break for him.>>That will set him back. We talk about Dilts
Ty Dillon got to keep that track position. Bubba returns to pit road after that problem.
But from what I’ve seen in the heat earlier an in this race that times don’t fall that
much these guys could make to the finish with these tires on the car is that their strategy.
>>I think maybe a few drivers strategy but 160 laps is a long, long ways to go and we’ve
had 50-lap runs, we’ve had a 40-lap run here and seen the tires hold on but it’s a long
ways from 160. A lot of times tires will fall off in steps. We’ll have to see how it all
comes together.>>The 33 of Brandon Jones he just took two
tires. You got to figure he will come back and get four more later in the going.
>>Now more from Ty Dillon and his race team under caution.
>>Compared to the 20 car. Not count. So maybe down there.
>>The 19 came out and slowed me down. The 4 on the outside slowing me down.
>>A lot of people slowing you down. That equated to two seconds plus got that pit box
too.>>This is tough on the drivers. The engine
doesn’t run smooth so it chugs like a train back and forth. [2:26:16 PM] It’s very hard to hold a constant speed but
also very important. You don’t want one of these penalties. Got to get position on this
start. Just about the one quarter point, green flag in the air completing lap 46 by Bristol.
Great starby Jones on the outside. Kyle Busch got to get track position. Got to get help
from the crew. Gained three spots and hopefully another spot or two to get up there. I think
he’s the fastest car on the track.>>In that bottom lane, making it work right
now. Erik Jones half groove over Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch down low.
>>Kyle Larson moves to the middle of the track to take away the engine ale on exit
from Busch trying to keep that second spot.>>Aric almirola right behind him. Joey Logano.
This battle for second outstanding. There goes Kyle Busch sliding around.
>>All clearx. Good job.>>Nice save.
>>Yeah. That’s a result of Larson taking Busch’s groove away and gets him loose. Needed
a little bit of room. Kind of used his cars the to save it.
>>Aric almirola going in the wrong direction got high off turn four, hurt his momentum.
15th right now as you go on board.>>This swipe of the wall is going to be fresh
from Florida. Right here. Zpl he was 7th when it happened now 15th.
>>Look at all those cars go back, just a slight slip.
>>He’s trying to use the gap to get it off the wall zpl you make a mistake like that
in 200 lap race you go immediately behind the eight ball. [2:28:23 PM]>>Bristol is unforgiving, makes the race
even shorter, no time to get it back.>>Dash for cash drivers running inside the
top ten. Kyle larson,side by side with Kyle Busch. There was contact. Is there damage?
>>Check out his left side. Done the think hit very hard but had contact.
>>Yeah there’s a scuff mark.>>10-4. I don’t see anything.
>>Everything looks good. Just got the tires.>>Really easy to get the left tire. You got
the tail pipes that are really sharp and can cut a tire quickly. Just making sure everything
is okay.>>Now again on the inside. Jeb Burton what
a save. Four wide off the corner. Wow.>>Almost wasn’t over Elliot Sadler changing
lanes on the straight away and gone again.>>We’ve seen the save for push. Aric armirola
and now Brandon Gaughan. Erik Jones impressing again. The rookie from Atlanta, in the 33
in front of Kevin Harvick. Yesterday in practice ran over 200 laps, experienced not a problem,
an he looks exon the race, he good in the race.
>>He’s getting experience right now.>>That’s learning the hard way. Kyle Larson
able to get around Erik Jones. Erik fighting on the inside. [2:30:26 PM] Kyle Busch is there as well.
>>That was an awesome move by Kyle Larson. Text book. He went in and took the groove
away.>>One thing I’m watching here is the race
is getting faster. The pace is picking up. We’re down to running 15 60s were running
15 90s before. That’s because height lane is cleaning up a little bit.
>>There you have it, I think we jinked him.>>You know Kyle Larson has an issue now.
Sb Kyle Busch using a pick to take the lead. Down on the apron. Surprising racing at Bristol.
Kyle Busch now leads this race.>>Watching the laps Kyle Busch has been tenth
faster. It’s just a matter of time to get traffic in the right spot and use it perfectly.
When you’re that fast it’s hard for people to hold you off.
>>Exactly right, especially when you’re confident as he is. He’s moving up to the high lane
and the low lane.>>Lap traffic always a problem for Erik Jones,
he’s now third.>>If they won’t get out of my damn way.
>>We’re all good.>>I know that feeling. I might have said
that couple times to my team, as well. Zpl and you know, it’s hard to get out of the
way. There’s nowhere to hide. You’re always in constant turmoil and traffic everywhere.
>>NASCAR race hub, Erik Jones would have made the reel. Started on point, running third.
Earned a couple cup superstars, Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson and Larson not letting him
get away and here goes Jones for second in the outside line.
>>Kyle Busch goes right up and gets in the high lane soon as he could. Shows how important
it is to be up there. Also when Kyle Larson went to the same lane Kyle Busch was in he
couldn’t keep up. [2:32:30 PM] It shows Kyle Busch’s strength his car is
strong enough to run on the bottom and of course has really good pace to get by on the
lap cars.>>On three occasions Kyle Busch and Kyle
Larson finished 1-2, every time Kyle Busch has gotten then and he’s out front this afternoon.
I guarantee, I won’t give you a random bag of food that came out of a microwave. I guarantee
to give you an actual meal with all the fixin’s. After you guarantee to give me five bucks
a’course. I’m running’ a business here! Colonel quality, guaranteed. [2:35:15 PM]>>>Larry Mcreynolds will join us and he’s
the leader when it comes to pakon eating contest. Joey Logano is running sixth best running
position running fifth what are they saying about our defending race winner.
>>22 needs more work. Looking back to the heat race they made adjustments for the main.
Hasn’t really helped them. That first run he was on the splitter down turn one. Back
of the car got loose. Would love to get a win here today. Thief put their colors on
a very good race car in this half mile facility.>>.
>>I had chance to drive the 22 and they had a lot of personnel change over and so the
team is rebuilding itself and catching on and I feel it’s getting a little bit better.
Hopefully will be back to where it was last year very soon.
>>How about Kyle Larson cloeszing the gap on Kyle Busch. Kyle drove off to half straight
away lead. Whether it’s working through traffic or just cars going away Larson is consistently
faster over the last few laps.>>Equal laps, Kyle Larson N and Kyle Busch
are almost I’d epticcal. When Kyle Busch goes to the bottom he has way more speed than Kyle
Larson that’s been the difference maker in this race.
>>Kyle Larson like that’s high side. [2:37:18 PM]>>Larson not letting him get away.
>>Larson is way too tight in center and it’s made him drive his carle more aggressively.
>>He is just saying hello. Wanted to make sure the Earth to Kyle knew he was around.
Message delivered.>>Once he settled down that last car cost
him the lead, crew chief urging Erik Jones to save the tires that they will probably
have to last until the end. We want to make sure not to burn them off, keep them under
you. Will be tough to be patient ebb nt if you’re Erik Jones.
>>They said shuffle the air pressure on the 42 car of Kyle Larson houx of a difference
as a can you feel, they’re 25uking about taking half pound out of a attire here or there how
much difference does it make.>>It depends who you ask, if the driver it’s
everything if you’re the crew chief you say I barely changed a thing. So drivers and crew
chiefs sometimes have different answers on that one but flight it’s working so needs
to keep it up. Zpl Kyle Busch trying to continue his winning ways, four of five races he’s
won.>>Kyle Larson is running so high it is cleaner
up there. [2:39:21 PM]>>Seig in the 19th position. These guys have
marched up to the top 20 trying to put guys a lap down.
>>Seig has done a nice job. A good indication of how good 18 and 42 are. Erik Jones leads
when you talk about dash for cash. Behind him is teammate Daniel Suarez who also has
that red banner. He’s gotten around Austin Dillon here.
>>You see Daniel Suarez bobble a bit and it opens the door for Dillon to come back.
>>Daniel Suarez has done such a great job this year and last year. He deserves a lot
of credit. Put himself in position for another great day here today.
>>Came pack in August and picked up another top five. Trying to cash in another $100,000
today. Kyle Busch cannot get away from Kyle Larson.
>>Look at this string of traffic ahead of these guys. They’re going to be in some serious
lap traffic.>>What Kyle Larson is thinking is really
simple, wait until Kyle Busch has to go to the bottom an D hopefully I can block him
out on the top. Because Kyle Larson is not as Exon the bottom just needs some 4e7 from
a lap car.>>They need an adjustment. But sounds like
some guys they will get away with the tires they are on. [2:41:26 PM] Had is not going to be pretty zpl side by
side for the lead. Got around Kyle Larson. Here comes Larson. Oh, they’re rubbing each
other. Contact was gone. It’s a potter’s nightmare. I think there may have been contact there.
They are laughing inside the top 15. Eleven is Blake Koch in 14 position. Just past half
way and problems for Gaughan with the contact smoke on
the left front.
>>Hope it is okay for Brendan you don’t want to blow out a tire here it hurts.
>>He has been frustrated all day, didn’t the have a good qualifying run or heat. And
now this.>>The heats were tame. I think we’re getting
paid pack. Kyle Larson wanted that opportunity and now Kyle Busch is behind him.
>>Working around Ross Chastain. Aric almirola is to go about a lap down in 13. He’s going
to tight it here because he doesn’t wnt to go a lap down.
>>Absolutely. Land open the door for Kyle Busch to make a run on the bottom.
>>You can see Larson loses his momentum. Can’t come off the corner like he wanted to
and couldn’t complete the pass. Darrell Wallace in the free pass position right now. He would
love to see a caution get a free pass and have a chance to rally back here in the second
half at Bristol Daniel Suarez and Austin Dillon racing for fourth. [2:43:50 PM]>>Kyle Larson pulled an epic slide job on
the 18 and sent 6 car down the stretch.>>We’ve heard concerns about right front
tires.>>Been 70 laps since last pit stop.
>>We still have 80 some to go here guys. Might not have seen the last of those. Got
to report the 11 of Blake Koch with steering issue that’s not good at Bristol.
>>Look at leaders. Larson couldn’t do it. There’s so much action on the track we have
great battles for fourth and the lead every battle three wide. All trying to get by lap
traffic.>>These guys were talking about going the
distance on fuel and then we hear about tire issues, I think right now you would definitely
pit if the caution comes out for this reason only eleven cars on the lead.
>>That’s a tact and that’s what you will see these leaders do.
>>That dirt experience allows Kyle Larson pull off that perfect slide job. Police report
at of why he is so dprat great here at Bristol.>>Ty Dillon talked about fighting for track
position, key is we’re only ten drivers down on the lead lap. [2:45:57 PM] If we come in for caution you get four, absolutely.
Remember these teams only had four sets of good year tires for the heat and the main.

>>Brandon Jones a lap douchb.>>Ty Dillon happy with his race car thinks
he has the strongest car on the bottom of the track. Making a small air adjustment,
said it is a little bit tight off the corner.>>Austin Dillon off the back stretch just
needs more help. Has great forward drive off but needs to focus more on the center turn
to help get him through the corner. Now the very first stall is Kyle Larson. Started out
on the high side. And then came in.>>The 18 of Kyle Busch. He started off on
the free side but just got so tight couldn’t turn so got to make the turn last and Erik
Jones said he just doesn’t have more drive. Got to have more drive if he is to get to
the front.>>Pit crews doing their job Kyle Larson and
Kyle Busch came in 1-2. That’s how they hold it. Followed by Erik Jones and Daniel Suarez
and Austin Dillon. They are your top five. 73 laps remaining in our 200 lap main. [2:49:59 PM] We’re live in Bristol, Tennessee, on FS1.

come home from the battle field. We also have neat projects we’re about to announce so stay
tuned. Going to be fun.>>Bradracing.com for more information. Kyle
Larson gets away as the green flag goes back in the air.
>>Great jump for Kyle Larson. That’s a key move to beat him on the restart.
>>You got Suarez, Jones and Austin Dillon. Ty Dillon.
>>He was ready that time and he gained.>>Jones beat him but Suarez was fourth and
now the battle for the lead. Busch looking into Larson.
>>I would look for him to get down, remember he got loose before when Kyle gets close to
him. Look at Larson go way up the hill. He knew Busch got loose down there.
>>I think he is getting serious now driving harder than he has all day long. Heard interesting
radio communication about Larson’s car. Listen to whyle said.
>>I was even taking care of it on the front side of the run but went away when Larson
past me. [ Bleep ] I don’t get it.
>>You ever done that?>>There you go. [2:54:12 PM] Every time I’m not leading that’s exactly
what I say. You know you’re trying to figure out and make sense of it. And Kyle Larson
does such a great job of runs against the wall.
>>All of them run up front running for the $100,000.
>>And Erik Jones up there.>>And Larson in the white above that.
>>Larson will definitely go places no one else goes. He’ll make it work that’s the impressive
thick. Thing. He goes up and he’s fast. It’s really impressive.
>>You liken it to his dirt racing experience where they have to search around and find
the grip. Can’t St run the bottom.>>Logano back in 9th position. Jones looking
to pick up a spot.>>Came right in front of Austin Dillon. Austin
will return the favor.>>That shows the struggle to pass here at
Bristol how tough it is. Usually would you have to fight, run in to pass. Now have to
do the same thing up top.>>Let’s look at Joey Logano. Defending race
winner comes off second corner.>>That’s just a little bit high. Got in the
grind we’re talking abound sucked him into the wall. Not too hard. Not what you want
to do to your race car.>>Running pack in ninth position. Remember
at Texas how fast Kyle Larson was on the short-run and his car would fade back and now here at
Bristol looks like Kyle Larson has a better long run car and that could pay off here at
Bristol. [2:56:17 PM]>>Let’s go back to the caution, nine cars
on the lead lap. Erik Jones with the lead pass. Two drivers took the wave around. Now
12 cars on the lead lap. Aric armirola and Ryan reed. They last pitted at 140. Their
tires are almost 90 laps older. If they get a caution that would be a great gamble for
those crew chiefs.>>Would be a brilliant move. Good chance
at Bristol we’ll get another caution. What’s the worse that could happen will fall another
lap down but they took a shot at it. Really smart play by their crew chiefs.
>>Last time almirola three tenths off of what our leader is running. His pace is off
but he’s in the top ten with a chance to make something out of it.
>>Getting close to the fourth quarter in our main.
>>Got that lap car in front of him. See if he tries to use it as a pick.
>>This is where Kyle Larson able to get the lead on the last run. Larson chops Kyle Busch
off and maintains the top spot.>>How many slide jobs do you think Kyle Larson
has done in his lifetime, there’s another one to the list. He’s got it perfected, working
it to an art.>>For his age he looks like a I veteran when
it comes to slide jobs, I’ll tell you that.>>What ntertain ING afternoon. Still 50 laps
to go. 500 laps tomorrow starts at 12:30 eastern time. Live on foxsportsgo.
>>15 laps like 15 minutes, so don’t go anywhere. These two are not done yet. A lot of lap traffic
ahead. It’s like a game of frogger with the lap cars.
>>I was thinking the same thing.>>They jump them and then jump them back
and forth. [2:58:20 PM] The driver behind is looking for think little
mistake. That’s all it’s going to take for the lead to switch.
>>I think Busch has made his car better after that pit stop and those adjustments because
he’s really faster than Kyle Larson right now.
>>Fourth, fifth, and sixth, Ty Dillon, Erik Jones, Austin Dillon. Front row seat for Kevin
Harvick.>>Listen to him work that gas.
>>Lead change again.>>Opportunity Larson was looking for, just
closing the door on Busch. He said I got to get inside the 24, I’m coming over bud.
>>Larson has been fearless.>>He has. He refuses to be beat.
>>That car is beat all to pieces.>>I got to see this again.
>>Look at this job Larson does. There’s not a whole there, is there. Zpl if you make one
there is, wow. Keep in mind the guy they were going around, 24, he’s going to drive the
18 next week. I thought Kyle Busch would get an assist from him in that situation.
>>Now Daniel Suarez right now in line to get the $100,000 bonus but he just about threw
it out the window. Look at this.>>Whoa, all the way off the track. Something
happened in front there.>>Something happened to the 16 and he checked
up. [3:00:20 PM] Luckily Daniel Suarez able to hold third not
even sure how>>He has a advantage over Dillon and
gave much of his gap away.
>>Will be the third straight won Suarez could win it.
>>Kyle Busch is all over Kyle Larson.>>We’re down to 40 laps to go guys.
>>Larson is doing aincredible job. So skilled and talented at this type of racing. I don’t
think he has as fast I car as Kyle does but he refused to be beat.
>>Ty Dillon hanging in there at fourth.>>He is. A little bit tight on exit. Doing
whatever he can trying to get laps down on the long run, starts to loosen up but it hasn’t
yet.>>Kevin Harvick lurking right behind this
group. Here’s Kyle Busch again inside Kyle Larson.
>>He gave him a big shot in turn three and now trying to pull slide job at one and two.
>>This is as good as it gets. Couple of the pest in the XFINITY series.
>>Larson’s said he got a flat.>>That’s what I heard him say. 37 laps to
go.>>Oh, and joenls picks up a spot using that
high line. It’s time to go.>>Yeah you wouldn’t think there’s 30 some
laps to go you would think there’s one lap to go. S.
>>Talk about full contact racing they’re going to fight tonight on FS1 and they’re
fighting here at prift.>>So Jones behind his teammate Daniel Suarez
both those drivers eligible for the $100,000. [3:02:23 PM] It’s whoever finishes best of that group,
Ty Dillon also in the mix. For the second things have tamed down at the front.
>>Yeah I mean watching these guys, remember, think about Jones and Dillon they are racing
for a championship, they’re thinking about a $100,000 over the next 33 laps which is
what Daniel Suarez has running third.>>But Erik Jones has clear the Ty Dillon
and he’s fast, he moved that car up higher in the turns than I’ve seen Kyle Larson go.
Last time by he cut a tenth of a second off the advantage Daniel Suarez has so company
is coming in the move of that 20 car very aggressive moves in late going.
>>Kyle Larson leads, Kyle Busch is second, third is Daniel Suarez, the top runner when
you look at drivers involved in our dash for cash. And Erik Jones is fourth and in line
for that $100,000.>>That will be interesting to see how those
teammates treat each other when they get to battling for that $100,000.
>>No doubt Erik Jones has pushed the go button.>>There’s 100,000 reasons to get it.
>>Got that right. He’s doing his job. P he’s got that car right on the edge.
>>I like the cheer leading. Sometimes you hate it when you get cheer LED but Bristol
is one of those tracks you need it here. This is a good place for it. Zpl think of all the
problems Erik Jones has had this year, penalties, a lot of adversity to battle through. If you
get up past Daniel Suarez get a top three, could put himself in position not only for
$100,000 but for making the chase two of 2450ez spots dpif you eligible for playoffs. [3:04:33 PM]>>Got two cards in a —
–>>Big momentum for Kyle Busch. 24 to go as
they cross the start/finish line.>>These guys sure do know how to make it
fun to watch, don’t they. When you think of the XFINITY series, Kyle Busch record is second
to none. Think about a guy to run right out, pick out Kyle Larson on your team. We got
the best of the best in the front.>>He’s not going away.
>>He certainly is not. Crew chief saying, trying to push it inside Kyle Larson. Can’t
quite make the move. But crew chief says when you look at Kyle’s record in the XFINITY series
and what he’s done here at Bristol there’s no other option or expectation other than
to win. So they definitely felt the pressure on the box today and hiiver is giving him
everything to add to that total.>>21 remaining here. And you know Kyle Larson
is hungry and the reason why is because three times he’s finished second to Kyle Busch.
He would love to get the checkered flag today. Busch looking inside again.
>>Aric armirola is making life tough on Kyle Larson. Heeds he’s in his groove but Kyle
Larson on the bottom might open the opportunity.>>He’s going to thread the needle. Great
job. What a move by Kyle Larson. Wow this is great racing, guys.
>>Aric almirola goes a lap down.>>20 to go.
>>Can’t explain how hard it is to do what Kyle Larson is doing with a car behind him
that’s faster, he knows it, he has to make every move perfect, you got lap traffic and
you’re at all over the place, he’s fighting hard. [3:06:48 PM]>>Physically it’s so demanding and then you
have to multiply all the decisions every license lap. Deeping with traffic. Dealing with traffic.
Splitting traffic. He’s doing it all.>>14 laps to go. Going to be really stressful.
>>I think I might have have to start holding my breath. S this last laps this is amazing
racing.>>Daniel Suarez hanging on to that third
position in the dash for cash reward but it’s not been easy for him in lap traffic.
>>It’s a big group of lap traffic in front of Kyle Larson. With just 15 laps to go they’re
going to catch him. It’s going to decide the race.
>>He’s managed perfect all day long. See if it can continue because right now the trophy
is on the line. Larson dives to the bottom off turn four. Nice run to make his way off
Monta Ellis, the 97 Ryan Ellis the 97. Got contact.ryan Ellis the 97. Got contact. Mario
Gosselin the 90.>>Third caution of the afternoon comes out
with 13 laps to go.>>Now how many of them are going to pit?
>>I don’t know I’m trying to decide. Zpl.>>I figure some of the guys will come and
get tires.>>Does Kyle Busch come and get tires. We
saw it play a big factor in last race what will happen here at Bristol.
>>And some going for the cash. Suarez, Erik Jones, Ty Dillon, third fourth and fifth.
It. What are you thinking crew chief? [3:08:49 PM]>>Guys they don’t have any new tires. The
best set of tires they have has 37 laps on them. We’ll be around five to six laps to
go.>>A lot of crew chiefs are defend breathing
a deep sigh of relief they don’t know have to worry about that. None of the leaders will
come do that. Zpl nice to get a caution with 12 to go, battling for the lead and be stress
free.>>Let’s hear from our leader.
>>Tires got about the same lap that’s we have sitting in here. I’d say we’re DW to
go. You got a better car. You’re the man.>>There’s that cheer leading. You the man.
>>The one guy Aric armirola perhaps could be spoiler late. Larson leads, 10 to go at
Bristol. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ I guarantee, I won’t give you a random bag of food that

Approves of your abilities in the booth.>>Thank you Dale, Jr. This is not a Normal

I mean running this track. [3:13:01 PM] Man, I know how much Dale, Jr. Appreciates
great racing and this is great racing.>>Anned is an open invite. Dale if you would
like to join us come up any time.>>Come on up buddy we’d love to have you.
>>We love you Dale.>>All right short track racing here. Short
track racing next week in the common wealth of Virginia. See you at noon eastern at rich
Richmond you’ll be in the race.>>I will be in the race. With your teammate
Joey Logano.>>Things going better for him right now.
He pitted for tires.>>And they’re 40 lap scuffs they used to
open the race.>>They’re cool and got some laps on them
and they decided it is a way to win some spots. They’re stocked up 3, 4, and 5 and they know
what’s on the line. We got a big race here not just for the lead. I think it will be
really exciting between the two Kyles. Kyle Busch faster on the short-run and Kyle Larson
on the long run and we have a five run lap to the green. This is a chance to grab $100,000.
>>Now going to be four laps to go are you guys nervous a little bit. [3:15:05 PM]>>Yes thank you for asking.
>>And my elbow is a little sore over here.>>I’m nervous and I know I won’t win $100,000
today.>>This is exactly what you hope tore when
coming to a short track NASCAR style.>>Man, we got a car on the back stretch that’s
Jeremy clements in the 51.>>We’re getting down where this could go
over time. It.>>Really the key will be can Kyle Busch keep
up with Kyle Larson in the launch zone, that restart box. It he can do that I think he
has enough speed to make a challenge and probably get the win and make the pass. That’s going
to be the big part of the race, this restart box off turn four when we do go green.
>>Keep this in mind. The only series this year that has not tried out the new over time
rule the NASCAR XFINITY series.>>Well I’m nervous. And I’m thinking that
that could be still a part of the equation here to get to victory lane. These restarts
we know how hard it is to pass. They’ve going to be really leaning on one another.
>>They got Jeremy clements pushed out of the way. Lights out of the pace car. Three
laps to go. To decide it here at Bristol.>>This is the time when you got to nail your
restart if you’re Kyle Larson because Kyle Busch has a fast car on the bottom. If he
is able to be door to door with Kyle Larson when they go to the corner, could give the
advantage to Busch.>>Larson outside. Busch inside. Here we go.
What a great start for Kyle Larson! Erik Jones tried to get there. Cross over move for the
lead.>>Huge restart for Erik Jones.
>>Trying to win that $100,000.>>Look at the speed he’s got.
>>Here we go, outside lane. Erik Jones LED that lap. Two to go.
>>Oh, and they’re going to make contact off turn two. [3:17:08 PM]>>Larson ran him high. Here comes Kyle Busch.
Three car battle for the lead as we come back to the white flag.
>>Larson is slowing. Something’s wrong.>>Joechbs Erik Jones has the top spot. One
lap to go. Erik Jones trying to win the race and $100,000! Here’s Kyle Busch inside. Can
he make it, no. Erik Jones, checkered flag, big pay day, he wins it!
>>That restart spot was huge.>>Erik Jones! Erik Jones! Can’t beat the
best, baby.>>You beat the best at Bristol. I’m so proud
of you I can’t see straight. Park on top of that building, babe.
>>I’m so proud too and I have nothing to do with it. What a move to get the lead from
Kyle Larson. He did it.>>Key is he had a great launch and kept up
with Kyle Larson. Great job Erik Jones.>>Be interesting to see what Kyle Larson
says about this great move. Not only the start. Look at Larson he gets a great start as well.
But look at the momentum Jones has. He’s right on the back of Larson. He goes to the bottom.
But then the move. You think he surpassed Larson here.
>>42 had a little bit of a slip right there at a key moment of the race snuck up.
>>Look at the top. Looked like Larson was going to running him into the wall and he
kept his foot on the floor board and pulled through.
>>Larson didn’t dwif it to him, you can say that.
>>What what I restart by Kyle Larson and Erik Jones.
>>Talk about doing it in style, Erik Jones gets the dash for cash $100,000, first time
he’s been able to collect that money and he gets his third career victory in his 33rd
start. [3:19:19 PM]>>And he beat Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch
in doing so. And that in itself is a major accomplishment. Got to make that young man
so proud and happy to be part of Joe Gibbs racing and driving those Toyotas for him.
>>Kyle Busch a runner up. 1-2 finish for Joe Gibbs and here you see Busch. Nobody likes
to run second when you got a fast car. I’m not sure what he is upset about specifics
but they still had a really good day. The Gibbs car have proven the amazing speed they
have in XFINITY series and Erik Jones got it done.
>>What’s going on.>>Fans call it exciting racing for Kyle Busch
how would you describe the restarts.>>Restarts were horrible today. When I would
go to gas both times the car just wouldn’t go, too much throttle too soon, I don’t know
what. You it’s frustrating when you’re in position, you have a chance and throw it away.
Erik Jones was in good position, great job for those guys. He deserves the win. But the
classes of field the two cars the two classes of field didn’t win so oh, well.
>>Chris, Kyle Larson LED 95 laps today. What a great race between you and Kyle Busch all
day long. Talk us through the final restart and last couple laps.
>>Definitely was fun racing Kyle. He was a little bit better than I was, but hard to
pass. Had fun in traffic. Didn’t want to see the caution. Knew I was tight on short-runs.
Did a really bad job on that restart. Really bad job. I wanted to win here really bad.
I know I dpaf that one away. I know I gave that one away. Hate it. We always have speed
when we come. I’ve been in the top three so many times have yet to get a win
hurts to lose one like that. [3:21:29 PM] Learn quite a bit for tomorrow.
>>Thanks Kyle.>>What a day for Erik Jones. Won the pole.
LED all 50 laps in his heat and a late rally gets him his third career victory in the main.
>>What do you think Erik Jones thought when he got to turn three and saw the lane for
him to drive armed the outside to drive around the outside.
>>Merry Christmas.>>I know he didn’t see it coming.
>>Yeah it was a great move. Something I don’t think Kyle Larson’s car just didn’t have the
short-run speed. He did an excellent job almost the entire race. Didn’t pan out at the end.
>>And Kyle Larson was honest and straight forward, said it’s on me. The guys that race
these cars are so gracious and appreciative of the opportunity.
>>Great for Kyle Larson eating humble pie. That’s a power move pi Erik Jones.
>>Austin Dillon good all day as well finished fourth.
>>Strong top five finish. When you break this down what will stand out most?
>>We were a little too tight I think. I was good for the heat race, the rubber hadn’t
completely laid down but when we got rubbered up the Chevy got too tight. Proud of the guys
to put us in different position. Got moved around a little bit there. We’ll take it.
It was a good game. We got new stuff coming in Richmond that I’m excited about
>>Good luck in Richmond.>>When 2016 we said Erik Jones was favorite
to win the NASCAR XFINITY series first driver to clench a spot in the chase. What a thriller
it was.>>We knew this chase format would play into
his hands, as he gets laps under his belts, understanding more and more about his cars
and challenges and he’s going to be tough in the chase. [3:23:37 PM]>>He and Daniel Suarez were off to a great
start. Daniel Suarez could have had same opportunity if he lined up fourth on the restat. That
restart positioning is so, so important. Erik Jones got the opportunity and made the most
of it when it counts. That’s what winners do.
>>Think about who he was racing against. Two of the best in Kyle Busch apgd Kyle Larson.
>>And Austin Dillon in there. He’s beat the best he’s so impressive with every move since
coming to NASCAR. This win at Bristol will probably go up there as one of his best ever.
>>Justin your thoughts on the day coming in fifth.
>>It was a great day. The caution helped us in the end, we picked up few spots. Thought
we had a shot at one point and just needed a little bit of help. Can’t thank everybody
at the shot enough. All of our partners, the tans. The fans. We had a great day. It was
fun.>>All right guys, only 19 years old and one
of the biggest days in Erik Jones career. Inside the Hollywood holtel for a recap. . Larry,
your thoughts.>>The fact if you become two dash for cash
you become chase eligible, Erik Jones won the race and the dash for cash the first to
win in 2016.>>That’s why it is so momentous, wins the
race and locks into the chase. Let’s go to Vince in victory lane.
>>$100,000 as the dash for cash winner, and his third career victory and maybe more importantly
the two guys he had to beat to get the win. [3:25:37 PM] Kyle Larson said he gave it away. How did
you steal this one today?>>I don’t know. We had a really DW restart
there. The 18 hadn’t been going. I lost my voice I was screaming so much on the cool
down lap. We got a really good restart. Kyle left the top open and we went up there and
he worked hard to keep us behind and we kept digging and it worked out. It’s just an awesome
day. Never thought we would get our firsz win here at Bristol. Couldn’t be happier to
make it to victory lane. Thank you to the whole team. It’s a really young team but we’re
getting better every week and cool to see it pay off here at victory lane.
>>The win gives you a spot on the chase, guaranteed. Also what it means to beat Kyle
Busch and Kyle Larson.>>I knew it would be a tall task to do it
here at Bristol it is one of their best tracks, I would say. I’m just so excited. You could
tell I’m sorry out of breath. I wasn’t working that hard just so excited about the win and
be here in victory lane it’s a big day for us.
>>You deserve to be excited, well done, Erik Jones wins at Bristol. Erik Jones leading
62 laps, more importantly he LED the last two.
>>I like the fact all four of our dash for cash eligible drivers finished in the top
ten.>>Ten cars finishing on the lead lap. Here
we start to see lap down.>>Elliot Sadler first finish outside the
top 15 in 2016.>>And Darrell Wallace didn’t feel good, had
a flat tire and abusted for speeding. [3:27:38 PM] Sure he’s glad it’s over.
>>Fun day of racing but action far from over. On FS1 blue Jays take on the red sox and then
braves and marlins. You can see it all start in just moments right here on FS1, 3:30 eastern
time and you can also see it on foxsportsgo.>>My braves are on a roll, they won a ball
game yesterday. They beat the marlins.>>You have just enough time to get back here
and enjoy an adult beverage and watch great racing. Four times we’ve seen Kyle Busch and
Kyle Larson finishing 1-2 all four times Kyle Busch has beat Kyle Larson down the stretch.
Busch said he just disability Busch said he just didn’t have it on restart.
>>And he also beat Austin Dillon that’s two past champions of the XFINITY series. The
other thing that happened was Erik Jones it’s only about the second race of the year where
he didn’t have any type of an issue, any type of penalty, speeding on pit row, jumping the
start of the race, it was uneventful and I think it paid tribute to him going to victory
lane.>>Look at that sticker on the car. That’s
the first time we’ve seen that sticker this year.
>>There we go, XFINITY series regular has yet to win so far this season. Erik Jones
the first to do it. Now we head to mind another short track and another dash for cash.
>>And more beating and banging.>>Absolutely and Joey Logano who was in the
race today, you can tell I was excited today I’m losing my voice, Brad will be racing and
his teammate Joey Logano will be in the booth with us next weekend. [3:29:49 PM]>>So Joey Logano can critique Brad keselowski
what he does on the race track.>>We know Erik Jones has $100,000 more in
his pocket then he did to start the day. What will he spepd it on?
>>Oh, I don’t know he seems to be conservative I say he puts it in the bank.
>>Such a good problem to have. Such a good show here at Bristol. See you back here tomorrow
for the cup race. Right now the MLB pregame show on FS1. Let’s send it to Kevin. P time.
>>When I step on the mound, I get to do what I love. This is what I have a passion for.
I have to make sure I have fun.>>Price will look to control the mound while
a B legend –>>Unbelievable.
>>The deceiveding A.L. East champions are out to finish what they started, LED by reigning
MVP Josh Donaldson.>>It’s to left field and he scores.
>>MVP with special things.>>Then we head to Miami where the marlins
are hoping to make some noise in the nl east. They’ll turn to Giancarlo Stanton to try to
shut down the braves.>>Wow.
>>We’re hungry and ready to go. You may not know about us know, but you will. [3:31:49 PM]>>>It always starts right now on FS1.
>>>There is Josh Donaldson, a little windy in Poston today. Five home runs tied. Blue
Jays, red sox on FS1. We welcome you to the Joe. J.P. Mo Rossi, and our lefty C.J. Nitkowski,
and I’m Kevin Burkhart as we continue to celebrate Jackie Robinson day. A great day of basket.
C.J., what are you looking at?>>The blue Jays, it has struggled so is for,
but specifically Troy tulowitzki, they brought them over in the big trade, kind of caught
everybody off-guard. Hitting just .219. He’s got to get it turned around.
>>C.J., a lot of controversy this weekend in el Boston about Pablo not being in the
lineup, but I have good news. Five home-grown players, 26 years old and older, includes
the birthday Bo Travis Shaw.>>>Guys a busy day. We’ll be here, blue Jays
and red sox is coming up. Second game will be a 7:00 start for the braves and the marlins,
and then followed by ufc fight night post-fight show.
>>>Early games today, we’ll take you there and check out what’s going on, mariners in
the bronx, Seattle down one, CC sabathia, and as we know, CC sabathia not the same guy.
He cannot miss locations.>>>Later in the fifth, Nelson Cruz, a second
double of the game. [3:33:51 PM] Cano scores.
>>The mariners have the oldest roster in the major leagues.
>>>Sabathia done before. And king Felix just getting started. He ties Randy Johnson’s record.
Pretty good. Meanwhile, angels and twins, second inning, angels down 2-0, and cliff
Pennington, that will bring in a double. They’re not go, Escobar delivers.
>>I like the Escobar addition to this team. They brought him in to play third base. A
nice Jon.>>>Reds and the cardinals, second inning,
no score, two on, mart carpenter, singling our Brandon fi gan.
>>And then the cardinals offense, best in the store P league, a bomb, a three-run shot.
He was regular es season, postseason it could be early, but maybe a start in the egg.
>>To Wrigley we go. Jake Arrieta’s home debut. Car losses Gonzalez goes down on strikes,
and here comes the offense, Anthony Rizzo goods yard in the fourth.
>>K.B., fourth in the MVP vote last year, I believe he’s going to win when before all
is said and down.>>>Arrieta on the mound, good luck with the
way he looks today. All right. I think the one thing you look at with these early games,
it’s the Yankees. Their offense has been minus Brian Mccann, the offense has been pretty
invisibility. Looking at the top of the lineup with Jacoby Ellsbury and Gardner, it’s been
a slow start for him. You’re not going to score runs if guys aren’t setting the table.
Alex Rodriguez last year surprised everybody with his year, but he slowed down significantly
in the second hard. [3:35:55 PM] He has not been the same guy, either. Yankees
are just struggling with the sticks.>>A-Rod one home run this years and zero
for Headley and else burgee. A power outage there.
>>>A great day of baseball coming up. Time now for the inside pitch. We’ll Ken come in
Ken Rosenthal, live from Fenway park. Ken, we know it’s been a tough season so far for
Pablo. What is the future.>>He’s going to Dr. Andrews for a second
opinion. Surgery is a, Dave Dombrowski telling reporters yesterday there is a lot going on
with that shoulder. Now, I spoke with Sandoval today, and asked him if the issue was with
his rotator cuff, and he said it’s everything. He then showed me can’t even lift hi left
arm. On the bright side for the red sox, Christian Vazquez was a revelation last night in his
return from tom,john surgery. Vazquez idolizes yadier molina, and that’s the kind of catcher
he could become.>>Let’s look ahead to the second game of
our doubleheader. We know it’s been a rough start for Fredi Gonzalez. What is his future,
the manager in Atlanta?>>Kevin, there’s a lot of frustration with
the braves right now. Gonzalez’ decision-making has come under scrutiny during the team’s
1-9 starts. It’s possible he could be the first manager fired, and there are three potential
roe placements on his staff. The one thing that could prevent a change from happening
is his close relationship with Bobby cox, the team’s former manager. Cox remains with
the club, still has influence, and has always been in Gonzalez’ corner. [3:38:01 PM]>>Kenneyy, always appreciate it. We’ll see
you with the broadcast from Fenway.>>>Lifelong the sox fan Katie Nolan has the
chance to visit and experience the.ballpark like she’s never seen before. We’ll go along
for the ride.>>>We’ve got proof, the latest edition of
the fox funnies is coming your way. David price, the new red sox ace, former blue Jays
ace, facing his former team. That’s juicy, right? We have that on tap, did he make the
right decision going to Boston? Hanley Ramirez in Boston Goss off to a hot start, trying
to break out of the slump. First pick in 26 minutes. Every auto insurance policy has a
number. But not every insurance company understands the life behind it. Those who have served
our nation. [3:40:03 PM] Have earned the very best service in return.
USAA. We know what it means to serve. Get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of
our members plan to stay for life.>>>He’ll come after you.
>>David price can strike out the side. Which he does.
>>He’s going to go deep into games, and he’s weft guys you have to attack. [3:42:08 PM]>>A 95 miles an hour fastball, as the heater
gets on you, he has a good cutter, attaches both sides of the plate.
>>>David price going gets his former mates. He’s been great, dominant numbers, maybe a
little different because he’s been in the clubhouse, that was for sure, but David price,
we know he has the big contract, right? Is did price end in the right spot?
>>There was a changeover, they wanted to go quantity over quality, of course they made
the move that brought back R.A. Dickey, but again no option there, I think being around
him the last couple weeks, he says it’s as comfortable as he’s felt in a long time. Now
he knows.>>And certainly taos to be comfortable, to
be in a city that wants you, but he will ultimately be judged. That has been the one struggle.
He has yet to win a postseason start. For red sox fans, they like him now. Ed evident
lose has been — the change-up using has gone up. Up to 26% will have this year. It’s not
just fastballs and cutters.>>J.P., to your point about quantity, they
brought back Estrada. He got a two-year deal.>>Katy Nolan, host of “Garbage time” also
a lifelong sox fan. When she was offered a chance to go behind the scenes at Fenway,
she could barely contain her excitement. Katie, take it away. [3:44:16 PM]>>Hey, guise, I have a list to make sure
that Fenway park is ready for the season. This isn’t fun for me at all. Here is Daniel,
a Fenway ambassador.>>It is a dream come true. I pinch myself
every time I come here.>>I’m if separating myself from any fan dom
that I have. Okay?>>We are in the dugout.
>>This is the best view. Right on the field. This is the place we want to be.
>>I should say mural it’s safe for the players to wall up out of here. Here we are inside
the green monster.>>Give the scoreboard a try and make sure
it’s all good.>>That I can totally do. Right up here. To
make sure things are all clear?>>That’s a good idea.
>>That looks good.>>I can confirm that Fenway park is ready
for the baseball season.>>That was insane. This is the most exciting
thing in my life!>>Dream come true. The emmy-nominated “Garbage
time” returns on may he. I think Katie is probably enjoying herself.
>>>Coming up, some pretty bizarre moments this week, and the latest edition of the “Fox
funnies.” Wait, it’s still basketball. What’s going on?
>>Two of the bigger sluggers. David Ortiz, who dough fear more? We’ll have these guys
discuss that when we return.>>>And Edwin Encarnacion, 39 bombs last year,
two last night. Blue jays/red sox, it’s coming up in 19 minutes on FS1. We’re back. [3:46:28 PM] I don’t want to live with the uncertainties
of Hep C. Or wonder whether I should seek treatment. I am ready. Because today there’s
Harvoni. A revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis C. Harvoni
is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who’ve had no prior treatment. It’s the one and only
cure that’s one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. Certain patients… Can be cured with just
8 weeks of Harvoni. With Harvoni, there’s no interferon and there are no complex regimens.
Tell your doctor if you have other liver or kidney problems, HIV, or other medical conditions,
and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. Taking amiodarone with
Harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. Common side effects of Harvoni
may include tiredness, headache and weakness. I am ready to put Hep C behind me. I am ready
to be cured. Are you ready? Ask your Hep C specialist if Harvoni is right for you. Are

up with erred rider. We can make a big impact on our environment. To learn more. We’re talking
about the Yankee offense. Carlos Beltran. Hall of famer, I think. Amazing, third year
of that year, remember, nobody wanted to pay him.
>>He’s five away from 400 home runs. Tulowitzki is struggling a bit. Blue Jays needs to get
him going. Now why don’t we put Jose Bautista on the hot corner?
>>Waffles or pancakes?>>Pancakes.
>>Non-baseball hobby?>>Free —
>>Favorite vacation spot?>>Favorite animal?
>>Dog.>>Best type of music?
— [ buzzer.
>>Researcher?>>He is a smart dude.
>>>Time for hit and run. And here we go, with Bautista, C.J., who is more feared?
>>They both have exactly 105 home runs, but I’ll take the younger Bautista.
>>Bautista, most home runs this decades, but I’m going with big Papi. Right now he
is hot.>>He hell big Papi to just 1 in 4. It’s early,
we no. Some of the good pitchers that have struggled, any concern you right now?
>>I’m worried about Chris archer, guys. Not as effective as last year. And my sigh yuck
pick, and Matt Harvey I’m also worried about. [3:50:47 PM] Not generating the swings and misses, just
five strikeouts. I’d like to see those swings and misses go up.
>>>Harvey goes in Cleveland. We’ll keep taps on that game.
>>>Willinghamle ton and starling Marte, he overran the ball. Style points there, my friend,
starling Marte exciting there.>>>Twins and braves both got a win last night,
who is going to win more?>>The braves. Dance by Swanson comes in.
>>I’m going to tail the twins even though they have the tougher decision.
>>J.P., the company man, because we have the braves and marlins later tonight. J.P.
Will promo that a big later.>>>Time for some comedy. This is the latest
edition of the “Fox funnies.” We start with angels in the back court. So angels playing
the a’s, so they send Mike trout Al better Pujols and Joe Smith to see the warriors,
and they played a game of P.I.G. And on a lefty, he beats the MVP.
>>And he’s right-handed.>>The athleticism, love the dunk there.
>>He always told me he was great in hoops. Now I have to believed him.
>>>This is funny. Lindor waiting for it to come back. A bit of panic and fun. One game.
Bill dueling catches five foul balls in the same game.
>>And he gives them away to kids. That’s what we have, great people who help the youth.
>>Still have to make up for the bad hat, but he’s — he gave it to the kids. [3:52:50 PM] He did.
>>Here you see the belt situation with Pablo Sandoval. We’ve played this one, sign it,
and it is unfortunate.>>The thing with the belt did not break.
It just came undoing. I don’t think he wanted to deal with it in front cameras.
>>I think if it’s not together it’s broken.>>Carroll, he’s dreaming of the good old
days.>>I think he hit in the game in that Clemens
was trying to hit. That ovation is still going.>>What about the necklace he was wearing?
White the white shell old school?>>>That was last week. Tweet us @mlbonfox.
>>>We added one from last night, he says, all right, bring them in, but how do you call
for a guy who calls for righty and lefties.>>We’re having a lot of fun. Head probably
hated he had to put up both P hands. Mookie BETTs, 23 years old, 8 hits, he’s doing well
atop that order. Red sox/blue Jays is next. ♪♪

great moments. I don’t really have one special moment that I came — but I think it’s one
of the moments that I’m never going to forget about. With number .500.
>>What I accomplished for the years, and put enough numbers, like I got to know how,
but can’t thank them enough. They made me win, so thank you very much.
>>>Heading to the great resume last night, a stotten basis.
>>Everyone was sleeping.>>They’re like, wait a second. Big Papi getting
the steal, first time he’s had one of those since 2013, and he’s now outside with Billy
Hamilton.>>This is cool, though. Players with stolen
bases after the business 4-0. This is a list. Rickey Henderson, Ted williamsened cy young.
I think the lead will be safe, but more amazing to me that cy young has more stolen bases
than Ted Williams. Oimplts unbelievable. What a great graphic by our guys.
>>About big Papi, he’s been a clutch performer, a playoff performers.
>>I think that offense will. I think the problem is David Ortiz didn’t pitch, and David
price is really good.>>C.J., I think the rotation for the red
sox will be very different in September, potentially October than it is right now. [3:59:32 PM] David Dombrowski, always with a lot of bold
trades. David price was one of them. I think that prospects that theft, remember, he’s
not attached to think. He will trade them in July if he has to. I love that home-grown
lineup.>>>Let’s get it out to Fenway part, Kenny
Albert, cliff Lloyd. Take it away, guys.>>Ken: 55 green and windy. We welcome you
to Fenway park, the second of a four-game series between American league east rivals,
Boston red sox and Toronto blue Jays. Good afternoon Kenny Albert along with cliff Floyd.
The red sox won the series openest last night. They acquit. Pitched in the postseason for
the blue Jays, and today he will face Toronto.>>Of course we know, I think looking for
me at the secondary pitches, that back-door slider and cutter that he throws, I’m anxious
to see how he comes out. We’re going to watch him warm up. I notice he Hayes the jitters,
but the stuff is there.>>>How about that career record 16-2 with
21 starts against the blue Jays. Best offensive team in baseball last year, but so far this
year up and down.>>I think when you look at the secondary
players, the complementary guys, can they come through consistently? [4:01:33 PM] They have to step up to get it down. They
have to have these guys in the you ball to ballpark.
>>Only three hits last night for them last night. The blue Jays will phase a familiar
on the sight. He is the opponent. Red sox and blue Jays, next. Woah guys, don’t fight!
