We can also add Logan Ruffin as well, he got the worst end of it. with less then 15 to go Jacob Goede is pitting out of the top five. We will has less then ten laps to go when the green comes out.

Travis Dassow is third while Jimmy Lang has come to the pits after he fell back a few spots.

YELLOW on lap 103 we have had a major wreck in turn four at least a dozen cars were involved in the wreck.  Here are a few David Odell, Chris Sevey, Alec Carll, Chad Finey, Drew Brannon, Kris Stump and Phil Bozell. We know we missed a few as turn four was parking lot for a few seconds.

Saturday, 9:30pm ET - Here at halfway a lot is going on in the pits. First it looks as if Sirizzotti did not get any damage in the tangle with Dahlke.  Dahlke said "It was pretty silly to race that hard with 100 laps to go". Leader Jacob Goede was out of his car working on it along with the crew.  But Travis Dassow and Jimmy Lang have been the big story Dassow has come from 28th to fifth, while Lang is fourth after starting 19th. 

Saturday, 9:20pm ET - The quick GREEN run ended with the halfway break. As the leaders camr to the line the 93 off Sirizzotti and 37 of Dahlke got together both ended up in the wall. We have a shake up up front in the standings when we get past halfway.

It looks as if all of those involved in the first caution are done for the night.

Saturday, 8:35pm ET - You have to say that Justin Larson will remember this Bristol experience. He won the pole and wrecked his car on lap two of qualifying. In the feature he ends up in someone else's mess after only four laps.

Saturday, 8:32pm ET - Brian Campbell took the lead on the first lap and sailed away.  on lap 4 the YELLOW came out when Brandon Johnson, Justin Larson and Billy Crane pilled up in the fourth turn.

Saturday, 8:25pm ET - Engines have fired and we are rolling here at Bristol.  The big question of course will tires as we have had some issues with tire wear this weekend.

Saturday, 8:15pm ET - Kerby Goble bwon the Mod 4 race. The guy who was leading with three laps to go got ot of his car part of the way and ripped the fender off the car.

Saturday, 7:36pm ET - Freddie Taylor Jr. won the Street Stock race. The Mod 4's are up next.

Saturday, 7:20pm ET - With a late race pass Kevin Wolf took the win, there was some words with the second place driver and track officials. it looked as if the second place car made a pass on the white flag lap.  But it's Kevin Wolf in victory lane. 

Saturday, 7:05pm ET - The chargers are on the track for their 15 lap feature.

Saturday, 6:50pm ET - There were no last chance races so we are waiting for pre race activities, they will start at the top of the hour.

Saturday, 5:30pm ET - Justin Larson will be running his back up car tonight, after wrecking his primary car.  He will have to start at the rear along with Travis Dassow who got a piece of the wall as well.

Some drivers have said that track conditions might be the cause for the tire problems. The temperature has been in the 80's most of the day.  Others feel that the support division has changed this because they are not on the same type or brand of tire.

Saturday, 5:00pm ET - We have some down time here at Bristol we will be back in a bit.

Saturday, 4:33pm ET - The issue with the tires comes down to the fact that this is the first year that the ASA Late Model Series has used a radial tire here at Bristol.  Like at Indy a few weeks back with the NASCAR boys, drivers are complaining about blistered tires. Teams will be aloud to change tires if there is blistering in the first 100 laps. They also will be aloud an extra set of tires in the pits during the race. 

Saturday, 4:15pm ET - Here is the full rundown after qualifying. ASA Officials are having a meeting with the drivers about tire concerns.  We will keep you update if any changes are made. Right now the plan is four a halfway stop at lap 100 and all team will likely change four tires then.

Saturday, 3:25pm ET - Justin Larson had the fast time on his first lap he then wrecked on his second lap.  The car looks to be in bad shape.  He might not be racing tonight.  He is not the only one, Travis Dassow made contact with they wall, so did Jimmy WellerLogan Ruffin spun but did not hit anything. full resutls coming soon.

Saturday, 2:25pm ET - We are 10 minutes from qualifying and there is a good chance that the track record for Sprint Cup cars could fall.   Ryan Newman record off 128.709 mph, in 14.908 sec., was set on 3/21/03.  Justin Larson led practice with a 15.092.  Will the record fall?  Stay tuned for the results.

Saturday, 1:55pm ET - One of the big stories that is going around the pits is the big wreck from yesterday. Peter Vanderwyst and Sean Bass got together big time on the homestretch. Both cars were junked after the wreck. 

Saturday, 1:30pm ET - The track still has activity as the Mod 4, Street Stocks and Charges are testing the high banks.  If you are in the area come on down as there will be plenty of seats around this half mile track. with 160,000 options I think you can find one that you like.

Saturday, 1:20pm ET - Today's practice was complete earlier, here is the run down for the 34 cars that are here.  The old track record was broken by each of the top 13 drivers. keep in mind the pole for the Sprint Cup Race here last August was much slower.
