Jimmie Johnson won his second NNCS race in a row last night at Richmond, Virginia...has lots of momentum going into the chase. This is unfortunate for those of us who are not 48 fans.
Earnhardt nation is weeping. For a while, it looked like he might get in: Harvick and Busch were caught up in several incidents that threatened their chances for survival. Earnhardt was running strong. Then, thanks to DNFs, Busch was locked in. And then Harvick. The 8 car still looked capable of winning, until, with 6 laps to go....he blew a motor and finished 30th.
Busch a threat for Championship...The Charlotte Observer. Note: He finished 10th and would have been in the Chase anyway.
