NOTES:

 

JOHNSON AND #48 TEAM KEEP ROLLING TOWARD HISTORY:  Chad Knaus pitted Jimmie Johnson at the right time and stole a sixth place at Talladega, putting tons of daylight between the #48 and the nearest contenders. Texas doesn’t look promising for his challengers as JJ has four podium finishes in his last six starts at TMS. He ran his Top 15 or better Chase streak to a simply amazing 33 races. Update on the highlights of that streak: 

·         No finish worse than 15th

·         29 Top 10s out of 32 races

·         22 Top 5s

·         20 Podium Finishes

·         11 Wins

AN EARLY CLINCH?:  Kurt Busch threatened to clinch Chase I early in 2004, but a blown engine in race #6 at Atlanta caused a 42nd place finish and allowed Johnson to make a strong run that stopped just 8 points short of overtaking Busch at Homestead. Johnson led by 183 points at this time last year but only managed a 15th at Texas and that kept the #48 from clinching at Phoenix.

GOOD RACE FOR SECOND:  Mark Martin leads Jeff Gordon by only 8 points heading to TMS. Montoya is 55 behind in 4th place and Tony Stewart is 95 out in fifth.  If Johnson decides to skip Texas to make it interesting, all four would be knee deep in the championship hunt.

THE RACE FOR THE PODIUM:  Denny Hamlin’s blown engine at Dega dropped him 11 points behind Carl Edwards for 10th place and the final speaking spot at the Las Vegas banquet.
