3:38 PM - Air temperature was 95 degrees at 39 percent humidity. Barometric pressure is 29.70 and steady. In time trials earlier today, Critchley got loose and hit the wall. In that crash, his right rear wheel center broke away from the rest of the wheel and the tire and rim came off the car. His team got the car back together and he made round one. This time, he came off the starting line slow and was not very aggressive for the entire run. Vick had a much better start and kept it up the whole way for the win.
