Lap 146 Joe in 5th...do not know his tire strategy, but must be older tires......probably need a caution in 2o laps to make it work

17 laps, caution...4 spins 19.....Bell was impatient with lapped truck 19...hurt his position as well. Lets see who does what with tires, it will restart with about 12 to go I think

Joe finished 18th. Both John Hunter and Joe were racing in the top 10 for a lot of the race, but it is the finish that counts. All in all a disappointing day for two trucks with no big sponsors
