After 200 laps, Martin Truex Jr. is the halfway leader in the Fedex 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway.

Truex is leading for the third time today and has led 84 laps. Truex also led at the halfway point in last week’s Coca-Cola 600.

There were three cautions in the first 200 laps, the first on Lap 75 after a report of debris in Turn 1.

Just as a round of green-flag stops was concluding on Lap 164, the second yellow flew for debris from Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s Ford. Six laps after the restart, another caution appeared for a three-car wreck on the frontstretch involving Trevor Bayne, Michael Annett and Justin Allgaier.

The first half of the race featured only four leaders: pole-sitter Hamlin (110 laps led), Truex ( 84 laps), Carl Edwards (three) and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (three).

The top 10 after 200 laps: Truex, Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Larson, Paul Menard, Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer and Jamie McMurray.

Hamlin fell several position on the Lap 185 restart and is in 15th.
