    If I'm reading this right, this means Alex Bowman moves to outside first row --- from 10th to starting 2nd.

    Bowyer will start P2, not Bowman. They move up by qualifying order. Bowman moved up 5 spots to 5th.

    No. Cars are lined up in order of qualifying results after tech. So front row now Harvick and Bowyer.

    It was deck lid issue on the two SHR cars. Mostly body issues for others. Teams do push limits and measurements to thousandths of an inch.

    Joey Logano car passes on the third try. Elliott and Larson also need to go through one more time.

    I'm expecting a 50/50 chance at a better version of Texas/Vegas. Every time we've seen small packs in practice, it's wide open and packy for a handful of laps, but then ends up getting strung out on the long run. I'm waiting for the time where that doesn't happen. Kansas surface may allow that to last longer.

    My cable provider is saying the race is delayed, true?

    Maybe the delay is because the BB game is running long on FS1

    Some guy who's never watched a race in his life is apparently a good choice for pre race entertainment.

    Fox still doesn't get that it's about the race. Or I don't get what TV viewers enjoy these days.

    This is why pre-race ceremonies should be done 15 minutes earlier in the day's schedule; so the networks won't have to fill time with this junk.

    No, you are correct, they seem to forget the racing is the whole point.

    Mostly body stuff. The two SHR cars failed deck lids. Elliott and Logano were chassis one time and off on the body scan another. Larson was splitter one time and chassis another. That is according to the teams.
