    Chase Elliott takes the win. That was a much needed win and I think his first which is good to see.

    :faint:

    It seemed like he'd never get one. You can bet that NASCAR is going over that fuel cell with a fine-toothed comb though.

    Crazy stats from Chase's win:
    Both Bill and Chase got the first wins after 8 second place finishes and both happened on a road course.

    The last 3 wins for the #9 car have all come at Watkins Glen, Ambrose in 11' & 12' and Elliott in 18'.

    I almost think NAPCAR, would over look that. Chevy and Chase get the win, just what NAPCAR needs, at this point

    Precisely! The problem with this series is at the top with a alcoholic cokehead who can't seem to grow up and run this series like his predecessors. Apparently widdle Brian is still a little boy who just doesn't know what to do without mommie and daddie and a drink or a hit of blow! What a flippin' joke. Chase's win was exactly what this sport needed to begin to raise the coffin out of the hole it was in and still is for the most part.

    Shaping-up to be a real snoozer with Kevin Harvick leading the way in Michigan.

    Kahne had sort of an odd career. He looked like a potential next big thing or at least a yearly contender early on and then he totally fell off a cliff. And that was with great equipment too.

    Kahne was always overrated to me as more of a pretty boy that could attract sponsors than an actual talent.

    I never thought that he was a bad driver and could win a race or two a year. But he was never the guy that was going to get himself into that top tier where the likes of Johnson, Gordon, Stewart, etc... resided and were at when they were on their game.
