theres really no way to break this down, especially havent even seen the qualifying order yet, but qualifying dont matter, so look for the usual suspects to be up front. either stewart, biffle or johnson will lead the most laps and he who has the tightest drafting partners at the very end will win the usual suspects were up front most of the day, although biffle blew up

1. dale jr 31st
2. gordon (jeff) 15th but again seemed to have the best opportunity to win with the most teammate support
3. saddler (elliot) 16th he probably had the strongest car but couldnt get no one to go with him to save his life. jarret was a nonfactor in helping him cause he likes to hang out in the back
4. busch (kurt) 7th penske definitely fielded a top 5 car. busch did it all with no teammates and everyone on the track who hates him but he kinda forced ex teammates kenseth and mcmurray to work with him on several occasions
5. t. stewart 2nd. just hung out all day and shot out of a rocket there at the end
6. j. johnson 1st him and vickers worked a little better there at the end. it must tick gordon off he has a teammate hungrier for wins than he is.

darkhorses: s. riggs, truex jr., denny hamlin, and bobby labonte in the retro #43 STP car (cool)
darkhorse s. riggs turned out a saving day for me in fantasy with the race dominant gordon and saddler getting shuffled there at the end. its all about having a drafting partner out there and team hendrick is showing the chemestry jr., and waltrip were showing a few years ago. funny how the wondertwins arent catching the flak that dei suffered. "oh, hes letting his teammate win"

bummer of the day: ryan newman (once again) is caught up in an accident having nothing to do with him. 5 wide 9 laps in. he even tried backing out of the situation and all the rookies and 2nd year guys around him kept forcing the issue. bam!

one hell of a race. definitely lived up to billing

you gotta give it up to vickers, schrader, and waltrip to make it back in time to appear on their inside nextel cup show. schrader said he hopped on a suzuki motorcycle to make it there in 45. minutes. theres probably no one over 45 years old more balls to the wall than schrader.

Yup.

Gordon didn't lose this race that was his to win for lack of hunger, he just made the wrong move at the wrong time. Considering that he's the new king of restrictor plate racing winning 4 of the last 8 and 3 of 4 in 2005, I'd say he it's much more likely that he simply made a mistake at the wrong time and was shuffled back.
