Lap 38 - Ragan takes the lead and can breathe easier.
Lap 37 - Ragan has caught Keselowski for the lead. Marcos Ambrose is making ground on the leaders, but it may be too little too late.
Lap 33 - The two leaders have set sail. As long as nothing happens Keselowski and Ragan should be able to coast into the main event.

Lap 28 again - Green flag back in the air. Keselowski with the jump. Menard and Truex make contact, and slide back through the field.
Menard spun his tires on the restart, and really bunched things up. Menard wound up making contact with the wall.
Lap 28 - Green flag is back in the air. Three wide. Logano and Menard make contact. A little further in the pack, Brian Vickers spins out, and brings out the caution yet again.
Only a handful of drivers take the opportunity to pit. Earnhardt Jr. and Mears lead those drivers down pit road.
Remember, for this segment, caution laps do not count.
Lap 27 - Yellow flag 2 - David Stremme gets into the wall. Looks like he cut a right side tire.
Lap 24 - Martin Truex is up to fourth. He is the first cars with any fresh tires. Logano also gets by Earnhardt Jr. and is bringing Jeff Burton and AJ Allmendinger with him.
Lap 23 - Ragan and Menard side by side for second.
Lap 21 - On the restart, Keselowski muscles his way around Ragan to take the lead.
Plenty of pit strategies. The top cars stayed out. They include Ragan, Menard, Keselowski, Earnhardt Jr., Casey Mears, and David Stemme.
Ragan and Menard stay out. Third place Allmendinger and fourth place Truex are the first to hit pit road.
