NOTES

 

          KENSETH OUT OF THE CHASE? NOT SO FAST.  --  Matt Kenseth’s third Bottom 10 finish in 9 races put him back to 19th in TRTC and 120 points out of 12th, but the Killer Bees need look back no farther than 2005, when they made up more than 13 spots and 192 points after race #9. Still, the 17 car doesn’t want to drift back much further before making a run this summer.

          GIVE A CALL TO JPM  --  Juan Pablo Montoya’s strong run at Talladega has landed him on the all-important bubble spot (12th place) in The Race to the Chase. Giving chase are names like Kahne, Jeff Gordon, Kenseth and Kurt Busch, all with at least one Chase under their belts.
