1 Denny Hamlin (right) won last Saturday's Busch race but had a rougher ride on Sunday. On Lap 204 he bumped the back of Kyle Petty's car, sending both men into the wall. "He ran all over us," said Petty. Hamlin's 38th-place finish dropped him three spots, to 12th, in the Chase standings.
2 They didn't come close to winning, but on Sunday, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart had marvelous runs. Both former Cup champions struggled all afternoon, but they expertly avoided the rash of accidents at the Monster Mile and earned solid point totals. Stewart finished ninth; Gordon, 11th. "This race," said a weary Gordon afterward, "is all about survival."
