NOTES:

 

          BIG MOVE BY BIFFLE:  Greg Biffle shook off two Bottom 10 finishes in the first six races and carded a third place finish at Texas, lifting him eight spots all the way to 15th place, now only 60 points out.

          IS MONTOYA FOR REAL THIS TIME?  Juan Pablo Montoya lurks in 13th place, 16 points out, but he was even closer at this juncture in 2007 in his rookie season, 12 points out. He’s improved six positions over this point in 08, and is leading the way for the Earnhardt/Ganassi stable.

          MARK NOW LESS THAN 100 OUT:  Engine problems have parked Mark Martin twice already, but his sixth  at Texas has him well within range of The Chase, 93 points out in 18th place.  This is the first time Mark has gone for The Chase since 2006.
