Shrubbery

Long, long green-flag runs tonight. Very hard for drivers to improve their cars and make progress against the leaders. It’s more about cars falling off and dropping back after making a charge.

The Joe Gibbs Racing cars are very strong. Kyle Busch continues to lead.

The way these cars have to pick their way around this tricky egg-shaped oval designed around a minnow pond, sometimes for a second they look like Hudsons, Kaisers and ’51 Fords. I’ve been to Tiger Stadium and Fenway Park, and this feels every bit as historic.
