All in all it was a good race, 20+ lead changes, and Kyle Busch did'nt run away with the thing, and win. This race in not so many years past used to be a runaway for the best car, and I would be channel surfing!

L'il Kyle came back from a lap down, led laps, and finished third and leads the Cup points - so while he may not have won - bad luck and mistakes are the only thing that kept him from victory lane. Seriously, changing batteries is not a quick fix in the pits - so a third place finish in a vehicle that did not have any issues from just about the start of the race - had he won, can anybody really say that he wouldn't have deserved it?

I think it was just unfortunate for Stewart.

True, but I remember Kasey was dominating the Fall race at Charlotte a few years ago (he was in the Mopar car) and he cut a tire late in the race and was all done. And who could forget Dover in 2004 when Kasey was leaving everyone behind with like 10 to go and hit oil. I'd say that fate owed him one. So yeah, he won this race due to Tony's bad luck, but he still drove a great race and probably had the best car, and he has also lost races this way too.
