This time last week I think most of us were still worried about the potential for a winless season. Then Smoke got the win, finally got his 40th win, tied Mark Martin, and got his fifth points-paying win for Office Depot.
Then he goes out this weekend, wins again, gets his first win for Mobil 1, and moves into sole possession for sixteenth on the all time list. He's just three away from tying Bill Elliott now.
He crammed all that into six days. Talk about being effecient!

That was pretty dam awesome.
MRN listed a stat before the race about how much Tony finishes in the top 5 at this track....it was a high percentage.
being a 300, they didn't think it would come down to fuel-mileage this week, but it did.
Too bad ryan had to pit with 3 to go

It's strange while I was optomistic this could happen in the chase, I thought maybe it was far fetched and was bracing myself if he couldn't pull a win off. Now he has two and is leading points. It is crazy how momentum has shifted this year. Eight more weeks just got to be smooth.
