NOTES

          THE DRIVE FOR FIVE:  Jeff Gordon stormed to the lead at Talladega and to the point in The Chase, but Saturday night poses a big challenge for JG as he guns for championship number five.  Gordon has finishes of 30—2—30—38—36—24—41 in his last seven starts at LMS.

          THE PUSH FOR THE PODIUM:  Only the top 10 of the 12 Chasers get to the stage at the Waldorf for the championship banquet. Martin Truex occupies the final spot, +18 over Matt Kenseth and +36 over Jeff Burton.

          SMOKE NEEDS TO GET HOT:  Tony Stewart is about one race behind as he goes to LMS, and he doesn’t have a top 5 there in the last seven starts. He has to string together top 5s and hope the law of averages catches up with the leaders.
