Batteries freed up right. Now come over. And it's strange long but We got during that restart got behind bars. Contract on the bottom three or four and Sit around and wait for them. Hard to give up we get back by some of those guys. Will they temperatures help you. Guys were quick yesterday when it was cold. I hope so. It's Kinda hard to know changes this morning. Many outdoor way. We'll see all the fuel. Can you know as far the crew chief on the car. They were one of the quickest happy hour yesterday afternoon in cold temperatures. They're gonNA come up about four or five bland short that's pretty consistent up and down pit road. There will be one more pitstop. We've got to change the lead coming off tournament four just as they exit of the corner. Jeff Burton dived underneath Rusty Wallace and he grabs lead is go back to one. Jeff Burton haze that lead to deterrence. Wanted to buy one car length and a half over Rusty Wallace. Ricky Rudd is under attack from Steve Park from the third spot.

Again Rusty Wallace Ricky Rudd falls in line and Third Steve Park was disclosed. Given now falls back off the rear deck of Rudd's car he was the park was looking at the inside lap after lap. Now he cannot make move on Ricky Rudd the solid third position top four cars separated by about the same distance as Burton gets back here with about three car lengths over Wallace about remorse back to back to state bar. Obviously this weather change inch has changed some of the handling characteristics on some of the cars that have been running up in the top ten. We thought that Tony Stewart restarted. After the yellow flag some laps back was GONNA come right up there and get in the mix of things. But Tony's lost some ground bleed. Marty Snider is in his pit. Mardy is the weather hurt them back and Forte for Tony two cars and a little bit. Hi It's been a little bit loose and seems like affecting them in the sun comes out. Tony gets a little bit better and the longer they run. Tony gets a little bit better so your I'm come to live here later. If we get a war with Brexit Pacelli talking to start your right now greg.

Frankly the need to free up a little bit better on the longer runs right. Yeah I'd like to see to Saint go green we're We're kind of breaking even willing to catch and most of them so I it will suit us best as long as very good again the longer runs and they too are about six laps short from being able to go all the way on. Fuel question is do you make a splash and go or do you try to change two tires. That's the question all the crew chief right now. Very hard decision to make to Tony. Stewart is fifth right now as we said but he has four and three ten seconds behind the lead to cars which are Jeff Burton and Rusty Wallace some good racing going on little further back in the field. Ricky Rudd still has hopes the staying up there in the top. Three three Steve Parks drop back just a little bit watching. Jeff Gordon. Try to hold off a charging. Bobby Labonte Right.

Full at least a few moments ago Jeff Burton was trying to get by him. That was the race for the six position. I think Dale Jarrett Dale Earnhardt. They're in the sixth spot. And Bobby Labonte now putting pressure on Jeff Gordon. That's the race for the seven. Th position at turned one bobby Labonte sets up the Pontiac or turn one took a brief look at the inside now back back in line. Jeff Gordon Still. Has that position both of those guys. Jeff Ford and bobbing in hot pursuit of Dale earnhardt. Neither one of them pulls enough to make any advances Ernie passes but they are using decisively.
