NOTES

 

          1-2 CLOSEST EVER WITH THREE TO GO:  Jimmie Johnson’s second straight win pulled him within 9 points of leader Jeff Gordon, marking the closest margin between 1-2 at this point in The Chase’s four-year history. The previous best was last year, when Matt Kenseth led Johnson by 26.

          MR. CONSISTENCY IN THE CHASE:  Jimmie Johnson has been second with three to go in each of the four Chases … wow.

          THE PUSH FOR THE PODIUM: Denny Hamlin slipped back to the bubble spot, and is now 24 points ahead of Matt Kenseth and Martin Truex by 89.
