I sure didn't expect that.

I also didn't expect 6 Dodges in the top 8 spots

The best Chevy, and the best Hendrick Car was 9th (Dale Jr)

2 Toyotas in the top 4 spots

Looks like it's going to be a fun year.

Another great 500 you gotta love it.Go Kurt Busch even if you got your ears cropped you still race like an animal.

Where the heck did all the Dodges come from? We bearly saw them the rest of the race then all of a sudden in the last five laps you had the Dodge freight train on the outside line.

Good thing that I changed Jeff Gordon at the last second. Didn't matter too much with Johnson finishing 27th :mad:

It was a good race I couldn't believe we got almost no Cautions the entire race then the last twenty laps we got like five lol

I was really hoping for Tony Stewart to win he was so close but came in third still pretty good.

I was also very surprised to see Ryan Newman win. I was just happy he did other then some people lol :D

I'm not a NASCAR fan but happened to tune into the last 50 laps and I was happy I did. It was a fun race offering lot's changes and possibilities, that last lap sure had plenty of drama.

Wow, that was a pretty good ending, I'm not sure I would call it a great race, the middle was pretty S-L-O-W but I was sure glad to see someone different win one. I'm kind of over the whole 24, 48, 20 thing. I mean not to take anything away from any of them, but I was glad to see someone who hadn't won in awhile make that Victory run! I also had him in two fantasy leagues, so I was pleased ;)

Dale Jr. lost all the momentum he had on that last restart when Kyle Busch pulled back up and let up to keep from getting a penalty for being below the yellow line.

Although I'm not sure the 88 would have gotten a lot of help from the Dodges and Toyotas in the end.

Overall, a decent race and a lot of promise for a fun year.

I was glad Ryan won of kyle. I really thought it was kind of a boring 500 though. But Congrats to Ryan on the win it's been a while for him.

I was really pushing for Tony Stewart to win since he never has before I guess there is always next year lol
