“And then (Newman) got in there and I knew he was going to be real tough on a short run, too. ... I know he's hungry. He's been working real hard to get back to Victory Lane, so I knew he wasn't going to cut me any slack.”

Jimmie Johnson didn't have the car most suited for restarts, and he found himself in a two-lap sprint against the guy who might have.

In another sign that this may be the year that the teams of Hendrick Motorsports can't be touched, Johnson still came away with the victory Sunday at Martinsville Speedway, his spot in front protected by the last of a race-record 21 caution flags.

'Those last restarts were tough on me,' Johnson said after holding off a stiff challenge by Ryan Newman before being rescued. He earned his third consecutive victory on the 0.526-mile oval, the shortest and trickiest in Nextel Cup racing. Read more

I couldn't resist, he left hisself wide open. Yeah, if you can see down from heaven Flames is one happy man. He'd be burning these forums up talking about Jeff's season. His son has always been a Earnhardt fan but he's really coming around to like Jeff but just won"t admit it yet. I'm hoping Jeff can bring it home. It would really be a tribute to Flames for me.

As long as Jeff keeps the points lead, I don't care who wins the race. Newman's finally showing some stuff of his good old days when he was winning.
