NOTES

 

·          HOTTEST CHASERS (Last 5 Races):  1—Tony Stewart 763; 2—Martin Truex 723; 3—Jimmie Johnson 715; 4—Kyle Busch 691; 5—Carl Edwards 690.

·          COLDEST CHASERS (Last 5 Races):  1—Jeff Gordon 513; 2—Kevin Harvick 555; 3—Jeff Burton 565;  4—Matt Kenseth 605; 5—Denny Hamlin 620.

·          SURPRISE CHASERS:  Give a call to Clint Bowyer and Martin Truex, each making their first Chase in their sophomore seasons. Bowyer improved 7 positions over 2006 and Truex improved 12 spots.

·          LOUDON MATTERS, BUT NOT CRUCIAL:  Getting off to a good start is important in The Chase, but only once in three years has the eventual champ left Loudon with the early lead: 2005 as Tony Stewart led by 10.
