Jeremy Sherman is driving the Alexander car.
Marty Miller scratched, so Shan Deskins moved into the last spot. On the start Seth Wilson somehow got on his head in front of the grandstands short of the flagman. The car looks OK, so he plans to restart.
You won't like this report. Charles Davis Jr got pushed sideways and Shon Deskins couldn't avoid him and nailed Charlie hard right in the cage on the left side, then Nadine Keller got into something or tried to miss the mess and flipped sideways down the front stretch many times. All three got out and the messy track now gets attention. J hicks led the only lap so far with Sheridan 2nd, Ford, Kruseman, Hermansader, High, Gardner, Leslie, Ripper, Rutherford, Gaunt......
A much easier red flag as JT Imperial crashed in turn 2 and RJ Johnson got involed a little, but he might make it back. Hicks still leading with Sheridan, Ford, Kruseman, Hermansader, High,Gardner, Rutherford, Ripper, Sherman, Leslie, Ebberts, Gaunt and COry is in work area changing a tire and going to the back on the restart with five laps down. Spencer to the back too, must have changed a tire.
Sheridan led from lap 6 to lap 23, then Ford took the lead and Damion passed him on lap 27, but a yellow came out and he goes back with four laps to go. Ford, Damin, Sheridan, Rutherford, Sherman, Ripper, Hicks, High, Kruser, Wilson and so on. Oh yeah the yellow was for Gaunt slowing then when he refired, he flipped in turn two as something broke on the front end.
Ripper stops after Damion took the lead on lap 27. Damion, Ford, Sheridan, Rutherford, Sherman, Kruseman, Hicks, High, Wilson, Ream, Spencer, Hermansader, Johnson, Hood and Ripper's trying to come back to the tail. He made it.
