Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs 100 @ Watkins Glen

Post by Tanrar on Thu Sep 07, 2017 9:03 pm

Spoiler:
Houston has no problems at Watkins Glen

Jack Ashcroft and Dallas Hammond lead the field of 30 trucks to the green flag, with Ashcroft getting the advantage in the first couple of corners, but it didn't take long for the first caution to come out.

Coming to take Lap 2, #39- Corbin Rhodes, #81- Cam Bennett, and #33- Tyler Everett were 3-wide coming off the final corner, Bennett would get loose and ping-pong off the two Outlaw Racers Group trucks of Rhodes & Everett before setting off a stack-up that would also collect #01- Hanamaru Tsushima, #28- AJ Murphy, #52- Nevaeh Laughlin, #62- Lacey Starling, & #97- Brittany Chapman. Everyone involved would keep going.

On lap 17, #52- Nevaeh Laughlin & #81- Cam Bennett's days go from bad to worse when they spin going through the inner loop, and slide towards the wall. #33- Tyler Everett, #01- Hanamaru Tsushima, & #26- Gregory Hadaway also slide off in the same spot, with Laughlin hooking Everett as they tried to straighten things out. Tsushima would wind up slamming Laughlin in her back bumper, giving the 52 some serious back-end damage. #54- Nozomi Toujou would also crash into the tires in the inner loop and retire from the race.

Pit stops under the second caution would give #36- Dustin Houston the lead, with #05- Ricardo Guerrero, #19- Scott Andrews, #6- Carter Fitzgerald, & #88- John Jefferson.

Lap 22 would see the third caution of the day, as #19- Scott Andrews washes out wide in the inner-loop, slamming the wall before shooting down the track, into #07- Nico Bassanelli & #6- Carter Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald would make heavy contact with the tire barriers which would end the day for Bassanelli & Fitzgerald. Back down the track, #01- Hanamaru Tsushima & #39- Corbin Rhodes would also spin in the inner loop.

On Lap 27, #79- Owen Hill would have a heavy crash coming out of the inner loop, collecting #11- Wilson Timothy for the fourth caution of the race. This wreck would end Owen Hill's race, a far cry from his thrilling victory last week. Timothy would continue.

Lap 33 would be the fifth caution of the day, as #19- Scott Andrews would once again hit the wall on the exit of the inner loop, spin, and slam the tire wall. This would be the end of the day for the 19 truck.

Lap 39 would see the last caution come out when #49- Scott Strickland makes the same mistake Andrews did the prior caution, and stuff his truck into the tire barrier, setting up a Green-White-Checkered finish.

20 trucks in all would take the GWC, with Dustin Houston and Ricardo Guerrero being the front row.

The trucks would make it to the white flag no problem, and in the last couple of corners, one last incident would occur as #33- Tyler Everett would hook #87- Alyson Evans into the wall down the straight heading towards the final set of corners. Racing back to the line, Dustin Houston would hold off a hard charging Jack Ashcroft to win at Watkins Glen and seal his spot in the chase.

"Just another day at the office for us. Huge shoutout to everyone that works on this truck, this thing was a rocket today, and there's plenty more where this one came from." said Houston. "Everyone on the crew for this Progressive Dodge killed it today, and we're gonna keep it up from here."
