Jack Roush has this Texas Track's number, as a car owner he has won 6 times, more than any other car owner.
This time he won with Carl Edwards and his #99 Ford Fusion. Carl's car had the field covered today, everyone else was just racing for second.
It was interesting with the Green/White/Checker ending though, but in the end no one had Carl's number.
Some interesting things happened in today's race so I'll just go for it in point form;
1) If you are a Jeff Gordon fan you must be beside yourself. They couldn't even get the car in good enough shape to turn it into a practice session. As far as I know this is only the second time in his Cup career that he has finished 43rd.
2) JJ Yeley had a nice run-in with the inside retaining wall this race. He was fortunate to scrub some speed off before he went head-on into it, but he still hit pretty hard. The lack of safer-barriers on these unprotected walls needs to be addressed and soon, NASCAR can't afford to have a driver injured like this, especially when it is preventable to a certain degree.
3) I feel bad for Martin Truex Jr. He had a solid run going until his motor went south. You don't suppose he got the left-over motors from Dale Jr's team from last year?
4) Those JGR Toyotas ran well today, not well enough to win mind you, but all three of them finished in the top 10.
5) Jeff Burton did what he had to do to stay out front in the points lead. I know it is early in the season, but he is racing like he is in mid-season form with a hand full of races left to The Chase. We'll just have to see if he can keep it up.
6) Ryan Newman's car failed post-race inspection, his one corner was too high. We'll have to wait until Tuesday to see if any penalties are forthcoming.
OK, see you tomorrow.
