2:38 p.m. The pairings for the Consolation and Championship rounds today were set Friday, so this round logically follows Round 1 from Friday.

The consolation pairing feature two drivers more often seen in the Championship pairing.

This was weird...Maroney had a big lead, then slowed on the top end. At about the same time, Hough, trailing, started heading for the centerline, the reason apparent. There was fluid under his right rear tire, driving him to the right. He tried to steer back to the groove, but took out both finish line timing reflectors. He was clocked at 160 mph just before the problem started and did a nice job of driving to keep the car upright and mostly in his own lane.
