Danica still at the front, looking good for Kenseth to win.

The other thing to realize is that they often try to get the biggest part of the commercials in earlier in the events so that they can focus a bit more on the finish.... That is not to say that there won't be any adverts then... just maybe a few less

At this point it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that a Toyota will win. They're all going to work together until late on and nobody can beat them.

Edit: Just as I say that, Toyota get jinxed. Kenseth hits trouble and Bowyer falls back. Still, there's three of them, and they'll be too difficult to beat surely.

Edit 2: Please don't hunt me down Toyota...

Just remember that these cars have a minimum dry weight of 3450lbs, 3650 lbs wet (about 1564kg)
They are about 208" in length (5290mm) and 74" width (1879mm)
So they are not small cars.

They develop about 850-900hp without restrictors, much, much less with the restrictors. in 2007 a NASCAR car ran 244+mph at a test in Bonneville, which is higher than I expected.

F1 cars have a minimum weight of about 640kg and closer to 900-1000hp. I find it interesting how such different cars can still get such speeds.

Kyle Busch and Kenseth are done. Sister cars for Joe Gibbs having issues.

Gordon has long been one to come to the front as the race nears the end. There is still another pit stop to go, after that it is going to get wild.

Still, you have to be happy for the guy. All of the scrutiny he has received over the years and consider the Levine Racing team is probably the smallest team in the field.

Its not going to last long though...

Danica still top 3 with 18 to go. Regardless of what happens now she's been fantastic all race and kept her car right in the mix. Good job.
