*MB: Should Grant Fisher have been DQd at NBN? According to the race recap by RRW's Chris Lotsbom Fisher would have been DQd if there was a protest (since he took around 4-5 steps on the infield), but there was none. He also estimated that Fisher might have ran 4:00-high to 4:01-low if he hadn't stumbled.
