There's no question that the phrase "so close, yet so far away" is overused, but nothing is a more fitting description for Marty Coyne's predicament after leading Saturday's Trophy Truck race in convincing style. Trophy Truck No. 5 simply ran out of gas. Racing rules prohibited Coyne from refueling or pushing the truck across the finish line. The checkered flag was tauntingly close, but still out of reach. Marty and crew shook it off and lined up again the next day. For their effort, Team Coyne took Trophy Truck's Seventh Place and racked up valuable points for the remaining season.
