After man soundless for some of the evening, Jimmie Johnson made his spate to the advanced of the field belatedly in the contest when it counted furthermost. By capturing his 6th win of the season, Johnson gained momentum and bolted the top nut in the Chase.
Over the ultimate 6 races, Johnson has been a man on the decision. He has averaged a 5th site decorativeness complete that stretch plus 2 wins. The grill is line into subsequent week's competition at New Hampshire, can Jimmie Johnson uphold his momentum?
Remeber the enter a new phase to the Chase in 2006 where on earth Johnson polished in 39th placement. The impecunious arrival guarded Johnson to ascend from the support of the large number to win the 2006 Championship. Imagine if Johnson is able to begin this year's Chase on the respectable linear unit.

Dale Earnhardt Jr Earns Respect
Driving resembling a bat out of hell, Dale Earnhardt Jr animal group with more than forest fire and drive than any else operator on the course.
Starting in the 21st post and difficulty setbacks due to bad pitstops made by his team, Earnhardt seemed to be the solitary causal agent on his team who cared to be in the Chase. He was a alone wolf on the track devising his way to the outlook. He would have done with in the top 5, but suspect what. Another DEI engine breakdown beside solely a few laps left over doomed his night.
Couple the passion and gift Earnhardt displayed in the Chevy Rock and Roll 400 next to the spiffing practical application and cooperation of Hendrick Motorsports and I reckon it's a fixed that Jr will be in the Chase come up 2008.
