kyle busch has led the most laps, 150. almost as many as the whole rest of the field. and in third, when they fired the engines, joey logano wasn't even in his car yet because of problems in inspection and look at the ride he has taken up the chart to third. and that is our sprint 20 to go. we'll see how this caution impacts things. >> darrell: if you think you have seen everything, wait until you see this. 20 to go. well,. >> larry: we are going to see a busy pit road. krista, i don't see them doing anything but four ties. >> krista: that is the plan, man. what a comeback for carl edwards to be in the race. there you see them on pit road. carl edwards trying to keep himself in the top five. martin truex is not racing for points. he is racing for the win. he said don't change it, i like it. matt? >> matt: kyle busch in the upper right. says he needs more help most on exiting the corner.

8:06 pm
that was -- almost looked like martin just lost the car and went up and hit the wall. >> mike: and the free pass will put brad kezelowski back on the lead lap. chris? >> chris: amazing. i know darrell pointed out michael at the start of the race you said to me hey, that number one pit box qualifying for kyle busch may figure in the end of the race and the race off pit road a major advantage in the battle for the top two spots with toyotas. >> michael: kyle busch has been solid. 10-12 laps, truex has been faster than kyle. sets up to be an interesting fib finish. truex seems to put him in the
8:07 pm
dust as they roll on. only a handful of laps to go. could be interesting. >> chris: ancarl edwards where does he figure in this or a two horse race at the end here? >> michael: i also like greg biffle. he is a wheelman and you need your wheel right now and the drive from inside to go get the job done. give me a sprint and greg biffle in a car and i like my chances pretty good he will start on the outside of the second row right behind true you ex. i would look for one of those three to get it done. >> chris: darrell, larry and mike. strategy out the window. pretty much the driver who has got the car this is where it is his to take the win. >> darrell: and kyle busch is great and restarts. he will have the inside line. this is when martin truex has to dig deep. start remembering how long it has been since i won my last race. cannot let that affect your concentration. get up on the wheel and get it. tonight you got the car to win. >> mike: i can't put all that on pit box no. one because didn't look as if truex stop was as fast as some of the
8:08 pm
other drivers pitted around him. >> larry: looked like kyle busch's crew nailed the pitstop. we have been talking about long runs all night long. this is no the a long run. i do like the 16 car. we know that hungry hound what he can do. he will get both hands and feet up on the steering wheel. >> mike: listen to kyle busch team audio after that pitstop. >> [radio]: go, go, go. yeah, boys! that is the way you do it! how about 11.7 on the watch for my boys! a step up when the money is on the line, boys. good job! >> darrell: 11.7. wow. four tires. >> mike: and there it is. it is a second. on the stop. >> larry: about a second right there as well. >> darrell: when we were looking at him he going out of the pits he was out of the pits before anybody even got close. >> mike: and this is because of the first pit box he can fire right out of there whereas truex had to battle traffic
8:09 pm
down pit lane. >> darrell: is this is team sport? >> mike: 18 cars took the wave around putting mcmurray and bayne and kvapil back on the lead lap. so 19 lead lap cars. tony stewart the first car one lap down as we get ready to is settle this. it will be 16 laps to go as the two toyotas come to the green flag. >> darrell: got to go. got to nail the restart. ever. >> larry: look at greg biffle in the 16. he forced his way to the bottom almost right up against joey logano in the 22. >> mike: somebody way up top. is kenseth. >> darrell: mighty crowded off of two but looks like they will make it down the back. can they make it into three? >> mike: three wide. >> darrell: might be too wide. >> mike: farrows up
8:10 pm
considerably. menard under fire from the 39. >> darrell: when you look up what is going on in the front. the 99 car larry, the 99 car heaven sakes. >> larry: brad kezelowski got the free pass and drove up by a bunch of them. >> mike: he is up to 11. >> darrell: martin truex has his hands full. not only is kyle busch driving away from him but he will have his hands full with the 99 car. >> mike: almirola and vickers had contact. racing for 7th place. >> darrell: it got really, it was a wad coming off of turn two over there. i'm surprised they made it. >> mike: saw kenseth there up high. he has not been able to advance. not been able to run the bottom either. how about martin truex, krista? >> krista: true you ex-was
8:11 pm
worried about being second on the restart because he knew he would be tight on the outside. the problem is despite conditions not just on the restart he said he is getting tight and he doesn't know why. >> darrell: so reminds me of kansas last year. >> larry: a year ago. >> darrell: a dominant car. last pitstop. whatever they did whether they made a change or not the car was not quite as good. >> larry: there the weather changed dramatically late in the race. not the case tonight. >> mike: 12 laps to go. is that enough time for the car are to come to truex and rundown kyle busch? >> darrell: no way. matching lap times. as a matter of fact, kyle is a good 2/10 quicker right now than anybody in the field. i know we talked about michael said give me greg biffle in 20 laps to go and he might be my man. i know on restarts you give me kyle busch you put him on the
8:12 pm
onside on a restart and i would say adios to everybody else. >> larry: there is greg biffle in the 16 trying to battle his teammate carl edwards. this would be a battle for third. >> darrell: and that is two guys, carl edwards won three times here. one of the winningest drivers here and biffle two times. two guys that know the racetrack. >> larry: brad kezelowski in the two over the back of menard in the 27 contribution trying to get into the top ten. i think a top ten finish for this team tonight would be like a win considering that they have been through today. >> darrell: joey logano running fifth and brad trying to get in the top ten. a great recovery for those guys. >> mike: biffle going to make the move to the inside of edwards. jeff gordon out of the race. broken left-front hub. j.j. yeley behind the wall.
8:13 pm
ricky stenhouse many laps down and in the garage, bliss, labonte and mcdowell. >> darrell: truex has been a bottom feeder all night long. all of a sudden found speed up off the bottom a little bit. not riding the rim but is up off the bottom a little bit. and i think it is paying dividends. >> mike: gaining hundredth where he needs to be gaining tenths or more. >> darrell: was on the bottom all night long. moving up a little bit on the middle of the racetrack and pecking up speed. >> larry: gained a tenth that lap but still a little over a second back. when they get back around here 7 laps to go. >> mike: and those two are still the two fastest cars on the racetrack. >> darrell: trust me i'm into the making this up. the 56 is going to catch the 18. i don't know if he will get by him but he will catch him. >> larry: about a tnt right there.
8:14 pm
>> darrell: now, kyle moved up a tad in the the middle of the corner because they must have told him that is what mar are continue did in the 56. >> mike: there is the interval trending down and here comes kezelowski. trying to take paul menard out o of the top ten. and that will leave ryan newman in 9th as the only chevy in the top ten. along with jimmie johnson in sixth excuse me. out front, two toyotas leading three fords. >> darrell: okay. >> [radio]: can't get to him. >> [radio]: give us all you got. that's all you can do. >> darrell: here is what saw now. when 56 moved up, 18 moved up. and they started trading lap times again. so the spotter told kyle 56 moved up, picked up speed. kyle responded by doing the same thing. >> mike: the gap steady at 1.3 seconds.
8:15 pm
five to go. edwards, biffle, logano, johnson, and johnson under fire from almirola from sixth place. as we he about run out of laps here. almirola has done a nice job tonight. >> darrell: yes, he has. >> mike: richard petty car in the top ten. has done a really nice job. started row two. a little lapped traffic in between the two leaders. that is timmy hill. that will benefit kyle busch with four to go. >> larry: and brad kezelowski in the 2 car, i know he there is not a lot of laps to go but he keeps picking them up and laying them down. going to drive by ryan newman in the 39. moves up to 9th spot now. >> mike: truex closing just a
8:16 pm
bit. >> darrell: it is kind of nip and tuck now. i mean kyle will be quicker one lap by a tenth and martin will pick up a tenth but pretty much leveled off. looks to me like unless something happens to the 18 car he is going to run up on a couple of lapped cars here. that could have -- play a little bit of a in the game but i don't think enough tore martin to catch him. >> mike: two to go. last night, kyle busch won his 12th career sprint cup pole and last night won the nationwide race. >> larry: looking for another sweep. i think he has six already. if he can close the deal here, the number of sprint cup series tracks that he does not have a win at. that number is getting smaller and smaller and he is 27 years old. >> darrell: it is not over. truex made a big gain that time because of the lapped cars. cuts a third out of busch's lead. he is there and going to get up there to him.
8:17 pm
>> mike: final lap. >> [radio]: he won't get to you. ten back. all good here. you're about to bring the checker. >> mike: lap car away to the inside and kyle busch driving joe gibbs toyota rounds out the corner and joins ned jarrett, rusty wallace, casey kahne, kyle busch wins his 300th career start. >> darrell: from the pole. led the most laps with a new track record. nicely done. and a sweep. i would say that is a clean sweep. >> mike: crew chief dave rogers celebrate and the team. >> darrell: the team had a whole lot to do with it. the pit seattle did, too. but that team. >> [radio]: let's get some. >> darrell: any knocked it out of the park on the last pitstop. >> larry: he was not even in the top 30 in points and followed that up. >> [radio]: i'm so proud of you. >> mike: kyle's 26th career win.
8:18 pm

8:19 pm

8:20 pm
we'll be he back with more from texas motor speedway where kyle busch heads for victory lane. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops.
8:21 pm
stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. (blowing sound) ask your doctor about spiriva.
