  • Clint Bowyer wins at Dega passing teammate Burton with a few hundred yards to the finish. My man Carl now has a 14 point lead over teammate Kenseth with 4 races left.

    • 1. Edwards - went in with a 5 point lead & now leads by 14
      2. Kenseth - was -7 before & now is -14 so he lost -4 points
      3. Keselowski - was -25 before & now is -18 so he gained +7 points
      4. Stewart - was -24 before & now is -19 so he gained +5 points
      5. Harvick - was -5 before & now is -26 so he lost -21 points
      6. Kyle Busch - was -18 before & now is -40 so he lost -22 points
      7. Johnson - was -35 before & now is -50 so he lost -15 points
      8. Kurt Busch - was -27 before & now is -52 so he lost -25 points
      9. Earnhart Jr. - was -60 before & now is -74 so he lost -14 points
      10.Gordon - was -66 before & now is -82 so he lost -16 points
      11.Hamlin - was -86 before & now is -84 so he gained +2 points
      12.Newman - was -61 before & now is -88 so he lost -27 points

      So there it is, before Talladega we had 8 drivers within 35 points & with a legitiment shot & after we now have 5 drivers within 26 points & the rest are 40 or more back & IMO out of it. Kyle at -40 would be an outside chance but after him forget about it.

      Talladega separated the field more than bring it together with 8 drivers losing points & only 3 gaining & 1 of the 3 was hamlin & he is out of it, so really only Keselowski & Smoke had a good day.

      I think it's going to be one heck of a finish & if i had to pick the champ, i'm sticking with my man Smoke, but it's anybodys to win unless Edwards runs in the top 3 from here on out & i just don't see that, especialy at Martinsville, he's never been very good there.

          Ill be happy if Carl gets a top 15 at Martinsville. Then the last 3 races at Texas, Phoenix, and Homestead he is really strong at. Especially Phoenix where he should of won there in the spring until Kyle took him out .

            • It's down to a 8 point lead & smoke was asked in the post race interview how he felt about that & he said "he better be worried" referring to Edwards.

                    Doesn't surprise me. Since they did it to Harvick (and the Harvicks "reminded" everyone), I knew they'd do it to Busch. I disagree with the call, though. What happens in Trucks should stay in Trucks. It shouldn't carry over to another series (yeah, I know. It's all NASCAR).

                    I understand Busch's frustration and the feud between the Harvick camp and his, but when he did that, I'm yelling, That was stupid, Kyle!

                        The problem with that part is he took Ron Hornaday out of contention for the championship & what did Busch lose? Absolutely nothing, so i agree with the decision totally & maybe they should just sit him for the last cup races as well.

                        The kid has all the talent in the world but he needs to get his temper in check or else he's gonna wind up out of the sport all together if his actions don't change.

                        I'm also very intersted to see what Joe Gibbs decides to do with him because i think Gibbs is going to have some sort of punishment of his own besides what NASCAR did & it's probably the only way Kyle is ever going to get it in his thick head that he has to change.

                        • Sorry Peanut, but I disagree. The punishment should extend to all series. Just like in baseball if a Minor Leaguer is suspended he cannot be called up till his suspension is over. Also the drivers do not leave what happens in the truck series stay in the trucks. Look at Brad and Carl. If the drivers carry over ill fieelings NASCAR has to carry over punishment.

                          I agree with PA. I think he should have been shut down for the rest of the year. You cannot have drivers intentionally wrecking other cars. It is not safe. If for any reason gor NASCAR to do this would be to swnd a very loud and clear message to all drivers. Especially in the wake of what happened to Dan Weldon.

                            That's cool. I really didn't think anyone would agree with me.

                            If they parked every driver that intentionally wrecked another driver, they wouldn't be able to field 43 cars.

                            Granted, most of them didn't do it as blatantly and stupidly as Kyle did.
