VanDoorn wins Red Bud 300

(Continued)

VanDoorn took the lead on a restart on Lap 154 following a two-car incident, by using the outside line to get around Braden on the back straight. Over the next three laps, Braden was passed by VanMeter, Reaid, Kenseth and Terry Fisher Jr.

VanMeter took the early lead from Kenseth following a restart on Lap 51 after a multi-car accident in Turn 2.

Kenseth took the lead from the pole position after the fastest six qualifiers were inverted for the start.

VanMeter went to the outside entering Turn 1 and led until the mid-race break.

After passing Kenseth, VanMeter was challenged by VanDoorn and Reaid, the fast qualifier. The final 72 laps went caution free until the mid-point break.

The front four drivers maintained a comfortable margin over Joe Beaver, who ran unchallenged for the fifth spot.

The first caution flag came out when rookie of the year contender Brandon Oakley spun after making contact with Beaver in Turn 2 and collected the car of Bubba Pollard, who suffered right front damage.

The second caution flag flew on Lap 53 when the 2011 race winner Steve Dorer made contact with the Turn 3 wall. The final caution of the first half came on Lap 70 when J.R. Roahrig spun through the infield grass and hit the Turn 3 outside retaining wall.

The race was slowed six times by caution flags for a total of 46 laps.

There were three lead changes among four different drivers.
