NOTES

 

          KURT BUSCH MAKES A STATEMENT, AND SO DOES TRUEX:  The two guys closest to the bubble didn’t show any signs of feeling the pressure as Kurt Busch and Martin Truex finished 1-2 at MIS.  Busch gained 63 huge points on Dale Jr and 75 points on teammate Ryan Newman. Busch now has the luxury of a bad race and can still maintain his lead, although he certainly doesn’t want to squander the 163-point advantage he carries to Bristol.

          HAMLIN 2-FOR-2 IN MAKING THE CHASE.  No sophomore jinx for Denny Hamlin as he easily clinched his second straight Chase at Michigan with a fifth.

          CLINCH WATCH FOR BRISTOL (Magic number is +391 over 13th coming out of Bristol)  Clinch candidates at Bristol:  Kenseth +556, Stewart +512, Edwards +409, Johnson +398, Burton +366, Kyle Busch +320.
