4:51 p.m. ET: It's too bad it takes a day like today to remember that Stewart himself it a future HoFer.
4:50 p.m. ET: To say the least.
4:49 p.m. ET: Never, ever a sore loser.
4:48 p.m. ET: Clearly the key to today's W.
4:46 p.m. ET: What a victory for Tony Stewart. What. A. Victory.
4:36 p.m. ET: Smoke!
David Caraviello @dcaraviello
Crazy. Tony Stewart. Who'd have thunk it.
Alan Cavanna @CopaCavanna
Smoke'd 'em! Wow
4:35 p.m. ET: Tony Stewart is going to Victory Lane for the first time in 2013!
4:34 p.m. ET: What he said!
Alan Cavanna @CopaCavanna
Turn on the NASCAR race right now!
4:33 p.m. ET: We're looking at you, Denny Hamlin.
A Montoya victory here would be a huge blow to other Chase hopefuls, given that JPM has road courses at Sonoma and Watkins Glen still ahead.
4:29 p.m. ET: So many juicy storylines!
4:27 p.m. ET: COSTLY penalty for Johnson.
Johnson must serve a pass-through penalty for jumping the restart #NASCAR
4:18 p.m. ET: Temper, temper.
4:15 p.m. ET: Kahne goes for a spin.
4:10 p.m. ET: Latest Hendrick update. Three in top 10.
4:07 p.m. ET: Even if it's a quick fix, running out of time.
4:03 p.m. ET: Tough break for EGR.
4 p.m. ET: Plenty of lead changes today.
3:57 p.m. ET: Could potentially be salvageable. Potentially.
3:54 p.m. ET: Just lost control.
3:51 p.m. ET: Plenty of heat at Dover. Not just the temperature.
3:49 p.m. ET: Engine issues for Truex ruins his day.
3:46 p.m. ET: Some major shuffling.
3:42 p.m. ET: Danica still in the race, at least.
3:40 p.m. ET: At some point, all of the luck that Stewart-Haas Racing has endured should even itself out and switch to the good kind, right?
3:38 p.m. ET: Plenty of time to get it right. Or make it worse.
3:36 p.m. ET: Age-old question, my friend.
3:33 p.m. ET: Something worth watching over the summer.
So Martin Truex Jr. says he suffered same kind of engine failure as Matt Kenseth. Both TRD engines. Oh boy ....
3:31 p.m. ET: Pretty good seat selection for the Mrs.
3:29 p.m. ET: How many men does it take to fix a front end issue?
3:27 p.m. ET: Lucky break for Busch. So exciting, he needs to cool down.
3:26 p.m. ET: Re: Truex.
3:23 p.m. ET: Hope it doesn't come down to a late restart, then.
3:21 p.m. ET: Troubles continue for SHR.
"Get a right front shock ready" says @RyanNewman39 - "something is broken in the front end."
3:19 p.m. ET: Still going to take some work to move up.
3:17 p.m. ET: Hard to see it going to anyone else at this point.
3:13 p.m. ET: More on Kenseth's troubles.
3:10 p.m. ET: It's almost unfair, isn't it?
Kyle Larson @KyleLarsonRacin
Jimmie Johnson is too good at dover
3:07 p.m. ET: Almost there. Anxiously awaiting.
3:02 p.m. ET: Truth.
Kenseth nothing short of spectacular this season. But his issues emphasize how hard it is to win Cup races, & how amazing JJ's 5-yr run was.
3 p.m. ET: Unbelievable.
2:58 p.m. ET: A quick look at the issues for Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano.
2:53 p.m. ET: Hendrick update.
2:49 p.m. ET: Kahne making some serious moves.
2:46 p.m. ET: Good points.
Alan Cavanna @CopaCavanna
Think of all of the success Kenseth has had,and then realize he crashed in Bristol while racing for the lead, and now blows up while leading
@CopaCavanna And blew an engine while dominating the 500. And got shuffled out at Talladega after dominating there.
NASCAR on ESPN @ESPNNASCAR
Wowzers, Matt Kenseth bows out with a blown engine. Tough break for the #20 - he was fast.
2:39 p.m. ET: Tough break for one of today's race favorites.
2:37 p.m. ET: Greedy, greedy.
2:35 p.m. ET: Looking to win on back-to-back days.
2:34 p.m. ET: Definitely doesn't sound good.
2:32 p.m. ET: Impressive, to say the least.
Jimmie Johnson deserves huge credit for staying patient and methodically working his way up to 6th.
2:29 p.m. ET: EGR looking so solid today.
2:25 p.m. ET: This could certainly change.
Not surprised we haven't heard much from Smoke today, but Carl Edwards is 18th and barely had a mention
2:23 p.m. ET: Pole-sitter struggling.
2:21 p.m. ET: Busch trying to crawl his way up the leaderboard.
2:19 p.m. ET: Never too young to appreciate good driving skills.
Chase Elliott @chaseelliott
The 48.... Need I say more?
2:15 p.m. ET: A reminder of thanks.
2:13 p.m. ET: So cool.
2:11 p.m. ET: And the comeback begins.
2:09 p.m. ET: Weather seems like it's on every team's radar. Pun intended.
Hendrick Motorsports @TeamHendrick
Clouds are moving in, but it's still hot at Dover. 2% dehydration (3lbs. in a 150lb. athlete) impacts hand/eye coordination & reaction time.
2:05 p.m. ET: Not looking too promising.
2:04 p.m. ET: Ford update.
2:02 p.m. ET: Great to see some positives for EGR.
2:01 p.m. ET: Bobby Labonte pit stop action.
1:58 p.m. ET: Pit recap.
1:54 p.m. ET: On restart, top 10 will be Kyle Busch, Kenseth, Truex, Kahne, Harvick, Martin, McMurray, Logano, Keselowski, Hamlin.
1:53 p.m. ET: Could've been costly.
Alan Cavanna @CopaCavanna
Hamlin tells his guys "nice recovery" after he misses pit road. Crew tells him he's faster than the leader right now
1:51 p.m. ET: Now, that's a photo.
1:49 p.m. ET: Brad Keselowski the new leader. Haven't been able to say that in awhile.
1:48 p.m. ET: Really, really tough start for Johnson.
1:46 p.m. ET: Weather update.
Stewart-Haas Racing @StewartHaasRcng
After 65 laps, cloud cover has increased dramatically. Breeze has picked up and temps have come down a bit.
1:43 p.m. ET: At least they have a plan.
1:42 p.m. ET: Yikes.
1:40 p.m. ET: Long green flag runs could be costly for some drivers today in this heat.
1:38 p.m. ET: Remember, kids. Always stay hydrated.
1:35 p.m. ET: Uh oh.
1:33 p.m. ET: "The Mayor" will look to make some noise today.
Jeff Burton @RCR31JeffBurton
Lap 30-JB quiet on the radio and working his way up to the 22nd position. Running fast lap times. -PR
1:30 p.m. ET: Good call, NASCAR Stats. Follow along with our live leaderboard.
1:28 p.m. ET: Joe Gibbs Racing is pretty good. Spots 1-2-3.
1:26 p.m. ET: Some early trouble for Gordon.
1:23 p.m. ET: Tough break. Ryan Newman was hopeful to make some progress today after qualifying well. Again, still early.
1:20 p.m. ET: It's early, yet.
Alan Cavanna @CopaCavanna
Pos 1-5 = team Toyota.
1:18 p.m. ET: Green flag!
1:16 p.m. ET: Set your NASCAR Fantasy Live lineup? Hope so. Too late now.
1:10 p.m. ET: Awesome.
1:08 p.m ET.: Engines are fired, we'll be getting underway shortly. In the meantime, read the apology from FOX regarding the cable snafu in last week's race.
1:05 p.m. ET: Agreed.
1:02 p.m. ET: And there he is. Boy, did Brad Keselowski miss him.
1 p.m. ET: Kurt Busch is certainly smiling now, but hasn't been too happy after the conclusion of the past few races. Is today the day he reaches Victory Lane?
12:56 p.m. ET: The camo vest. An under-utilized fashion choice.
12:50 p.m. ET: Greg Biffle has been quiet for a few weeks now. He'll be looking to change that today.
12:46 p.m. ET: Ever notice Kasey Kahne always has the best shades?
12:44 p.m. ET: Driver-on-driver personality analysis.
12:38 p.m. ET: Solid technical update from NASCAR Stats.
12:34 p.m. ET: But Keelan Harvick is giving her a run for her money.
12:32 p.m. ET: We take it back. It's actually Matt Kenseth's daughter that is the talk of Dover.
12:30 p.m. ET: Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth. The two titans (or, more appropriately -- monsters) of the 2013 season chat before the race today. Something tells us Carl Edwards might be joining that conversation after today.
12:27 p.m. ET: Always so good with the fans, Danica Patrick takes some time before the race to sign some of the special edition Goodyear military tires.
12:22 p.m. ET: What do you think?
12:20 p.m. ET: Welcome back to the Dover edition of Minute-by-Minute ahead of the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks. Let's kick things off with a tweet from Miller Lite, sponsor of Brad Keselowski's No. 2 Ford, which welcomes back crew chief Paul Wolfe today.

3:51 p.m. ET: Should make for an interesting finish if the race stays green.

2:56 p.m. ET: Lots of feedback on the cars heading to Twitter feeds. We're on lap 23.

1:36 p.m. ET: Somebody needs to pick a new hat, it seems.
1:31 p.m. ET: Austin Dillon is on the pole for this afternoon's race. Parker Kligerman isn't as happy about his qualifying effort, but just as optimistic.
1:24 p.m. ET: Upside-down photos... OK, maybe he is struggling.
1:18 p.m. ET: Thanks for stopping by for Nationwide race day news at Dover. To start us off... who would have thought Keselowksi's team isn't as tech savvy as he is?
7:04 p.m. ET: Kyle Busch has won the Lucas Oil 200. Head over to Press Pass to hear what he, points leader and second-place finisher Matt Crafton and others have to say.

6:17 p.m. ET: Darrell Wallace Jr. has a win at Dover in the K&N Series, so this is a strong track for him.
6:13 p.m. ET: Guessing from the currently leaderboard, Rowdy is Kyle Busch and JoeyRocks is Joey Coulter.
6:10 p.m. ET: 100 laps in, Darrell Wallace Jr. hasn't given up the lead, but his team owner Kyle Busch is on his tail.
6:08 p.m. ET: A nice sentiment on the No. 4 team.
6:06 p.m. ET: Remember that crash almost as soon as the race started? If not, you can watch it here.
5:56 p.m. ET: Darrell Wallace Jr. has led every lap so far... will Mark Martin's hope come true?
5:52 p.m. ET: Not even a third of a way into the race, the third caution comes out. No. 07 (Faison) goes spinning.
