NOTES

 

·          EDWARDS SOLIDIFIES SPOT IN THE CHASE:  Carl Edwards’ win at Michigan gained him 97 points on 13th place, giving him 243-point cushion on making The Chase.  Edwards is seven positions ahead of this time last year.

 

·          TRUEX STAYS ON AMAZING ROLL:  Just five races ago, Martin Truex Jr. stood in 20th place. Since, he has gone on a torrid 785-point run and climbed 10 spots to 10th.

 

·          MEARS 4TH AT MICHIGAN PUTS HIM IN THE HUNT:  Casey Mears, just about given up for gone in The Race to the Chase, has climbed 15 spots over the last five races, and now sits just 217 points and seven spots out of the Top 12.  Mark Martin stood 205 points and six positions out in 2004 and Matt Kenseth stood 281 points and 11 positions out in 2005. Both made The Chase, and so can Mears.

 

·          MONTOYA’S WRECK DIMS CHANCES:  Juan Pablo Montoya’s promising start to the season has gone sour. A DNF at Michigan dropped him 325 points and 11 spots out of The Chase.  A win Sunday at Infineon would help, but he’ll need more to get into contention.
