The clock struck time for Tony Stewart, time to win that is. Stewart, who now has three wins the season all within the Chase races now jumps to second in the Chase standings just 8 points behind Carl Edwards. After the race Stewart issued a warning to Edwards saying, "He better be worried. That's all I've got to say. He isn't going to have an easy three weeks." 


The race itself was not as smooth for everyone else, with a total of 18 cautions for a total of 108 laps run under yellow flag conditions. Involved in accidents were several Chase contenders including Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin, Dale Earnhardt Jr and Ryan Newman.


In a bizarre incident, Kyle Busch was involved in a wreck at lap 465 after tangling with Matt Kenseth. After pitting to repair damage, he returned to track only to loose his tire, lugnuts were left off the No. 18 car and the tire took off rolling down the track.
