Great win for Menard, I thought Gordon would catch him but that wasn't the case.

If Gordon had 2 more laps he would have taken it.

I think so too but I thought the 24 team made their move to late to do anything about it.

Gordon is my man but while he was burning the glow off that set of new tires Paul was peddling around at half throttle saving fuel and saving fuel is saving tires. Jeff didn't gain but a few feet on him those last two laps and admitted after the race that his car had tightened up to the point his only hope was Paul running out of fuel. Paul's team put together that perfect day and stuck to their race plan. It was amazing to watch when Slugger told him to let it go with four laps left. He was in first place and driving away from McMurray in ten seconds. A great race and a well deserved win.
