NOTES:

 

·          MARTIN, REUTIMANN WOES MEAN BREATHING ROOM FOR T12:  Mark Martin (38th) and David Reutimann (36th) got in big trouble at Daytona and the result was everyone in the Top 12 gained big ground. Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin went from being in the 161-point “danger zone” after New Hampshire to good cushions now. Mark Martin’s fifth Bottom 10 finish of the year dropped him out of the T12.

·          MONTOYA GETS SOME CUSHION:  Juan Pablo Montoya’s ninth at DIS gained him 85 points over 13th place. Lots of racing left, but the #42 team has to feel great going to Chicagoland in 11th place, with an 86-point margin over 13th. JPM has yet to record a top 5 this season.

·          T12 BY OWNERS:  Stewart-Haas 2 of 2 (100%), Gibbs 2 of 3 (66%), Roush 3 of 5 (60%), Hendrick 2 of 4 (50%), Earnhardt/Ganassi 1 of 2 (50%) Penske 1 of 3 (33%), Petty 1 of 3 (33%). 

·          T12 BY MANUFACTURERS:  Chevrolet 5, Ford 3, Toyota 2, Dodge 2
