Homestead Update #5

Red flag withdrawn and the field runs under caution.  22 cars are currently on the lead lap and the NBC crew continues to fawn over the 48 team.  Looks like we'll get the green 11 to go.  The running order goes Yeley, Biffle, Kahne, Hamlin, Kenseth, Johnson, Truex, Stremme (!), Edwards, and Bowyer.

10 to go: Biffle shoots past Yeley and Kahne does the same while dealing with the lap traffic.

6 to go: Mears off the pace, blown engine.  Caution is out and this race will not end.

The restart will come with 2 to go.  Single file, no lucky dog, just 2 laps left in the 2006 season.  This restart will constitute a GWC so if the caution comes out again it's over.  Yeley is out of fuel and has stopped on the backstretch. 

Biffle takes the checkered flag, Truex 2nd, Hamlin 3rd, Kahne 4th, and Harvick 5th.  Jimmie Johnson is the 2006 Nextel Cup Champion.
