NASCAR At Dover Update: Kyle Busch Leads As Caution During Pit Stop Cycle Leaves Seven Cars On Lead Lap

Few things can shake up a stock car race quicker than a caution flag during pit stop cycles.

Guess what happened during the first cycle of stops during the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway?

Yep.

J.J. Yeley's right front tire blew on lap 69, laying debris on the race track as many of the lead lap cars - but not all - had made their pit stop. That left only six cars on the lead lap with the rest of the field two laps down. Carl Edwards and 22 other drivers took the wave-around to get one lap back. Edwards also benefited from the "Lucky Dog" free pass award for being the highest-running lap-down car at the caution flag. Everyone else remains a lap off the pace.

Kyle Busch remains out front after 105 laps, ahead of Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson. Completing the lead-lap cars are Clint Bowyer, Jeff Gordon, Brad Keselowski, and Carl Edwards. Kasey Kahne, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Ryan Newman round out the top-10 as well as racing for the free pass spot.
