NOTES

 

          RAGAN BREAKS THE TOP 12  --  Quietly, very quietly, David Ragan has put together a string of races good enough to land the #6 team into the all-important Top 12. His stealth-like crashing of the T12 party should earn the young Georgian some much-needed exposure.

          HOTTEST TEAM CHASING THE CHASE?  TRY KVAPIL AND THE #28  --  Travis Kvapil’s strong 8th place run at Darlington has the unsponsored Yates Racing #28 team just 111 points and 6 spots out of the Top 12.  Over the last five races, Kvapil has more points than any other Chase contender currently outside the T12. Wow.

          KENSETH’S RUN THE BEGINNING?  --  Matt Kenseth’s 6th at Darlington was crucial to give the #17 team some positive momentum. He gained 51 points on 12th and now lurks 153 points out of the T12.

          TWO TO HALFWAY  --  We are two races away from the halfway mark in The Race to The Chase.
