Texas Race Update #2

5:55 - Caution for Paul Menard blowing an engine.  Hahahaha Tony was bump drafting the pace car.  That's great.  Pit stops for everyone: Kyle Busch with two tires, Stewart, Bowyer, Harvick, Johnson, Kahne lead off of pit road.  The battle between Stewart and Bowyer is razor-thin.

- Another caution as Robby Gordon gets loose in front of Greg Biffle and spins, Kenseth nearly hit twice but comes through it unscathed.  No other cars involved.

5:36 - Caution out again as Ken Schrader wrecks which in turn leads to an accident involving Mark Martin and Sterling Marlin (second week in a row...).  Mark doesn't have any big damage.  Schrader goes to the garage, didn't see anyone making any stops but I assume that the guys at the back will.

- Kenseth has sucked today but he stays out and leads a lap for the bonus points, race is at halfway.  Looks like a few new faces will populate the top 5 as Carl Edwards had a great pit stop.

- Caution as Dale Jr. hits the wall as Clint Bowyer goes by for 2nd.  Leaders make pit stops, can't tell if he is on pit road or in the garage.  Car is on pit road at the moment, damage isn't as bad as Burton's was.

- Jeff Burton's back on the track and could gain a few spots and get a few more points.  Kenseth has fallen to 28th.  Stewart still leads over Dale Jr. (who is sick) and Clint Bowyer has rose to 3rd. 

- Caution out for debris on the frontstretch, yes there is actually debris there.  Leaders in for pit stops.  Stewart, Dale Jr., Johnson, Bowyer, Gordon, Truex, Edwards, Harvick, Kurt Busch are the top 10 off pit road.

- Kenseth says his car feels "weird" but he has picked up 6 more spots to 21st.  Mark Martin's day couldn't get much worse.  Next update will come for pit stops or a caution.
