After human being quiet for substantially of the evening, Jimmie Johnson made his tide to the facade of the piece of land latish in the race when it counted supreme. By capturing his 6th win of the season, Johnson gained movement and latched the top pip in the Chase.
Over the ultimate 6 races, Johnson has been a man on the shunt. He has averaged a 5th spot finish complete that long together with 2 wins. The grill is line into side by side week's contest at New Hampshire, can Jimmie Johnson carry on his momentum?
Remeber the start in on to the Chase in 2006 where on earth Johnson all gone in 39th configuration.

Imagine if Johnson is competent to creation this year's Chase on the corking linear unit.

Dale Earnhardt Jr Earns Respect
Driving similar a bat out of hell, Dale Earnhardt Jr drove beside more conflagration and uncovering than any other than operator on the track.
Starting in the 21st lines and incapacitated setbacks due to bad pitstops made by his team, Earnhardt seemed to be the singular being on his squad who cared to be in the Chase. He was a alone canid on the track devising his way to the front. He would have dressed in the top 5, but presume what. Another DEI engine washout next to solitary a few laps outstanding doomed his nighttime.
Couple the excitement and natural ability Earnhardt displayed in the Chevy Rock and Roll 400 with the first-class technology and group effort of Hendrick Motorsports and I estimate it's a specified that Jr will be in the Chase move 2008.
