5 may have had all the speed in the world, but it’s time you admit Larson fell out of the seat in the clutch. He walled it by himself, as he’s been known to do.
"Fell out of the seat" ? You know that phrase means he physically wasnt capable of driving the car and gave up, right?

That doesn’t really say much about what was green flag passes and not though. Just the lead changes. Got anything that shows which passes were green flag competitive passes?(so if the leader had an issue but no yellows came out, that also doesn’t count). I’d be curious to actually know how many folks actually made a pass because they actually raced there way into the lead.

Sorry I waited to watch the race with my dad this morning since he worked last night during it and we didn’t watch everything.

From what I’m seeing, people saying, only 2 of the 4 green flag passes, was actual passes. The other two was the leader having issues.

Every HMS driver has walled it by themselves so what's the point you are trying to make?

which one of those wasn't a green flag lap change?
Well Chris Buescher took the lead under yellow during pit stops where he held off to win

But let’s go from the start. Aric took the lead on lap 45, while under yellow. But only led a lap. Brad then took the lead. Still under yellow. Led to the end of the stage. Then Bell takes the lead under yellow. Buescher then also took the lead while under yellow. Oh hey. Then Bell took it under yellow again. Led 119 laps. Then he lost it…. Under yellow. Larson leads a little bit. Oh hey, look a green flag pass by Brad. Then he gets passed under green by Bell but because he cut a tire. No yellow for some reason. Anyways. Then Larson passes Bell but I believe Bell was having problems as soon he’s the reason for a yellow. Anyway Larson then loses lead under yellow, to Bell… who then loses it under yellow to race winner Buescher.

Remember, in my question to you. I also said how many wasn’t because of the leader having issues. Bell passed Brad because Brad’s tire went down. Seems only like 2 was competitive passes. Can’t exactly remember everything I saw, so maybe it was 3. But Brad being passed wasn’t because of anything Bell did other than pass a car who cut a tire and went into the wall.

Well I still don’t exactly know of them passes, which the leader during have an issue other than the one I remember with Brad. Like I said I waited to watch with my dad like I do for every race. It would be pretty easy of you to remind me if anything happened to the leader in the others. I know you don’t like me, but I’m being pretty nice and would like that same respect man.

Beating a deadhorse. I've had this same conversation. There's just loads of context to that data that are ignored.
