Texas Race Update #1

5:00 - Tony's just killing the field today.  He looks really, really good and I don't think anyone has the car right now to match him.  Johnson and Jr. look pretty good, along with Kahne.  Kenseth reported possibly having a flat tire, but it looks like it wasn't after all.  He had fallen to 30th but at last check he was running 27th. 

4:37
- Well, scratch that.  Jeff Burton blew a right front tire and brings out the caution.  The damage looks pretty substantial.  He might be done for the day.  Pit stops ensue for the leaders.

4:30
- Stewart continues to lead with Kahne, Johnson, Earnhardt Jr., and Scott Riggs in the top 5.  Matt Kenseth runs 22nd with a car that isn't handling to his liking but appears to be getting better.  Next update coming at 5:00.

4:16
- Tony Stewart leads as they go back to green, followed by Brian Vickers, Kasey Kahne, Jimmie Johnson, and Jeff Gordon.

4:10
- Competition caution and pit stops at lap 40.

3:50
- Green flag!

3: 43
- Field will go under green-yellow situation to start counting laps.  I'll be back when they drop the full green flag.

3:38
- Still haven't gotten the green flag, the cars are helping dry the outside line.  I'll be surprised if this race goes the full distance.
