We have a winner and the race was pretty good. Early racing was tainted by two massive wrecks that took out many household names. After that things really settled in and the aggregate was a very good race.

Jeff Gordon ended a lengthy absence from Victory Lane. He edged out Kyle Busch, who had he won would have taken all (3) races this weekend (Truck, Nationwide, and 2nd in the Sprint Cup race).

The last 20 laps was "go time" and the big boys did what they had to do. After the race the track will begin a resurfacing for the Fall race. Many drivers and crew chiefs are less than thrilled, but what do they know?
