The 40 Week Monster Cup Series Coke Zero 400 night race at Daytona Int’l Speedway started with Mike Franklin capturing the pole and Thomas Ogle recording the fastest lap of the race. Dwayne McArthur #67 Camry gained 22 spots for the most positions gained bonus. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Thomas Ogle led the most laps with 22, going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 3 cautions with 10 lead changes and there were 4 disqualifications with 9 disconnects in a 28 car field ending with Thomas Ogle capturing his 1st win of the season with Dode Hoskins finishing 2nd, Michael Hensley 3rd and Jeff Cox capturing 4th.

This week the Monster Cup Series moves to the Quaker State 400 night race at Kentucky Speedway with the current points leader Mike Schrader looking to find ways to maintain the lead in the series. The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?

We shall see when the green flag drops at 11:40 am Eastern time.

In the Cup Series point championship, Joel Kilburn in 2nd, Kenny Kulikowski 3rd and Mike Franklin 4th and Brian Glass 5th place.

The Kentucky race will be intense, and expect to see close battles all over the track
