It doesn't any better than the race today. Jeff Gordon layed in wait and ambushed the rest of the field. The man is truely amazing. He kept his car out of trouble all day and never tipped his hand till it was time and even after a penalty he moved it to the front. Absolutely amazing!!!!

you have got to be kidding me, it doesn't get any better than the race today. GMAB!!!Jeff waits in back all day long, gets pushed to the front by his teammates, you call that a win!! A champion races for the win. Tony is a true champion and without him Jeff would still be sitting in 23rd where he belongs.

Tony pushed Jeff to the win...and then got left out high and dry. I'm happy with a top 10, but pissed that Tony can't get a drafting partner. What's up with that?

ps - ESPNEWS is great - they know everything about NASCAR..... HA

well Andy, being that Jeff was only shown on TV when he got hung up on the air hose in his pit and then in the line, stuck behind Jimmie coming up in the draft.. I think the exciting part must have lasted for a full 3 seconds for you there.. that might be why you could be interested in watching Tony race.. he races for hours and hours on end! He doesn't need the white flag to be waved to tell him to mash the gas.

Some of these post just show how jealous people can be, it does not matter if you like Jeff Gordon or not, he is the best driver now in Nascar and the one all wish they could learn a few moves from. You can deny it all you want, but he learned a lot of what he knows on the super speedway tracks from the late, great, "Dale". Couldn't get any better than that.

Think about it Gertie. When you're coming to the flag and you have a chance to win or push someone else and run second. It's not a hard decision when the person you're going to push is Smoke. Heck, he's going to win most times whether you push him or not. Had Jeff not pulled out when he did yesterday Smoke would have won easy but it wasn't to be. You have to admit, the HMS drivers do work pretty good together. As soon as Jeff made the pass on Johnson he jumped right back in front of him to keep him up.
