NOTES

 

          HOPE MAY NOT SPRING ETERNAL, BUT IT LIVES FOR MANY IN THE RACE TO THE CHASE  --    Ryan Newman’s tough outing at Phoenix enabled many teams to gain on the Bubble Spot. 10 drivers, all the way back to Paul Menard in 22nd, are within one race of the Top 12. Drivers who have yet to make a Chase:  Labonte, Montoya, Vickers, Gilliland, and Ragan – are all within range of the T12. That’s exciting for their teams and sponsors.

          GIVE A CALL TO VICKERS AND MENARD  --  Brian Vickers has gained 21 spots over least year and Menard +22 and both currently are Chase contenders.
