NOTES

·          HERE COMES CLINT:  Clint Bowyer is peaking at the right time. He has only three podium finishes all season, but two have come in the three Chase races.  Talladega presents a mental roadblock, as Bowyer has finishes of 40-35-35 in three starts.

·          REMEMBER JIMMIE:  Kurt Busch (-177), Jeff Burton (-186), Matt Kenseth (-219) and Denny Hamlin (-248) are all more than one race out of the lead, and one more bobble in the next couple of races will probably eliminate that driver. Take heart, because Jimmie Johnson stood 165 points out at this time last season.

·          MISTER CONSISTENT:  Kurt Busch does have a big margin to make up to get back into Case contention, but he boasts an admirable streak of six straight Talladega Top 10s coming into Sunday.
