A driver named Rico Abreu did his first Truck race today.He's a bit different to the other drivers - he's a dwarf.
Unfortunate bit of commentary,but amusing, from Phil Parsons when he was involved in a car just before the halfway mark that put him out
" His first race,unfortunately a short one"

Just looked him up,he won the 2014 USAC Midget car championship :$

Ahh was almost a fairy tale finish. One of the GOAT. Only 4 titles but if it weren't for the chase format he would of won in 04,07 and 14.
Very bold call going out way before the sport passed him.

Do you mean whatever bought out the caution with 11 laps to go ?
Yeah. NASCAR said that it was a bit of metal on the bottom of the track. I haven't seen the race, but from what I've read, a couple people have said that they showed it in the coverage (It was right on the apron) and the majority of people have said all they saw was a water bottle on the infield.

It was a water bottle and when shown on TV it was on the yellow paint on the front straight,out of the racing area.
Rick Allen said the flag man thru out the flag as it was near the top of the track but had got blown down by the cars.
So was it thrown onto the track to bring out the yellow by a Gordon fan ?
Dale Jr fans have been known to do this over the years.

Did Keselowski start on the bottom on the last restart because he wanted to give the Championship contenders a clear run or because NASCAR wanted the contenders to have a clear run?
