NOTES

 

          SUPERJIMMIE:  Certainly after nine races, we are seeing the greatest Chase run in the four-year history of the playoff format by Jimmie Johnson and the #48 team. How dominant? Here’s where Johnson would stack up against other Chase champions after deducting the extra 5 points per win awarded this year:  2006 vs. himself +220,  2005 vs. Stewart +137, 2005 vs. Kurt Busch +206.

          JEFF GORDON – UNLUCKY:  After adjusting for the extra win points, Jeff Gordon’s 6476 points at present are the second most in Chase history by 61 over Tony Stewart iin 2005!

          THE PUSH FOR THE PODIUM: Martin Truex pulled within 47 points of 10th place Kurt Busch with his 7th at Phoenix. Denny Hamlin will need Busch and Truex to slip badly at Homestead to make the podium at the Waldorf.
