There's a few clouds up in the sky but I don't think it will rain.

The first 18 cars are still on the lead lap.

It's now strategy time.
42 laps to the end
Generally a tank will last 33-37 laps.

If there is another safety car period, Skaife/Todd Kelly will be in the box seat.
If not, Steven Richards/Mark Winterbottom & Craig Lowndes/Jamie Whincup will fight it out. Maybe Johnson/Will Davison as well.

Pretty locks the left front coming into the chase.
Big flat spot.
Lowndes is all over S.Richards.
