No laps lead like last week, but the speed was there to do it, just didn’t have the opportunityto take the lead on a restart.3rd Reddick – not the best qualifying, but he had solid lap averages in practice, had some issues on pitroad late, but came back to battle at the end.

Gained stage points in both stages’ great day for Kevin.7th Kyle Busch – Started 11 th finished 7 th , just a solid finish from Kyle while some of his teammatesstruggled yet again. For a while I didn’t think he would crack the top 10, he gained no stage pointsyesterday.8th Logano – He only led once for 4 laps but he was in the higher half of the top ten for both stage ends,just a solid top ten car all day.9th Suarez - punted AD3 who was having a good day running just in the top ten for both stage ends,Suarez did what he had to do for 9 th .10th Buscher – Snuck a top ten while his teammate and owner struggled all day long.Larson looked great all day until the third stage when he blew the engine, a rare Hendrick engine failuresent him to the garage early.We have our Race grade, Checkers & Wreckers(Best and worst of the race weekend), and our Pick A Lane debate(will we see a shift in speed after the west coast swing, should we worry about Joe Gibbs Racing, and should Phoenix continue to host the Championship race?)Plus our betting picks for this week's Fold of Honor QuikTrip 500 at the newly reconfigured Atlanta!All that and more on this week's Bump N' Run Podcast!Bumpnrunpod.com
