4:29 pm: Denny Hamlin wins the 2nd stage.

4:23 pm: Elliott's communication problems begin to cause some controversy.

When will NASCAR Elliott have his radio repaired? Will they just let it run for the whole race? In theory, not hearing your spotter is a safety issue, right?

4:17 pm: Not good.

4:16 pm: Beware of Matt Kenseth.
