Don't I know it, they way he was driving, there was no way he could have saved fuel, I was shocked he made it to the end let alone win it.

Chip was braggin on NASCAR radio that they had enough fuel left to do burnouts. I never saw anyone save fuel running so hard they were locking the brakes trying to slow for the turns. Hmm, an odd seafood smell.

They did say that there were quite a few variances in some of the cars, maybe he was on that squeezed in just that little extra it took to make it. But it does make you wonder! I am sure NASCAR would have spotted a larger tank in post race inspections. Very interesting. Hmm.

Hi Sam,hey they do have all the same fuel cells.Now listen to me on this one,even though the COT cars and stock cars in general look alike,they make Chevy,Ford,Dodge and Toyota all use fuel in a different way! The engines are not all alike....They burn fuel differently than the next guy! Same as if you were to buy a car off the lot,fill them up and see who get's the better mileage...lol Really,JPM was among others coasting as much as possible:)Also if your downshifting alot,using the brakes alot,every time you accelerate your using more fuel to get off the turns...Just my two cents!
