That was my very first thought. Looked like an obvious caution to me.

JR is stupid. Always has been always will. I don't know why he decided to gun it with 15 laps to go. Had he kept saving fuel, he would have won the race and might have even done so without any apparent help from NA$CAR.

Fox reported that Letarte told him to "go" with about 15 laps to go.

Yes I am aware. Jr should have ignored Retarde and kept saving fuel. He obviously didn't save enough to "go" with about 15 laps left.

tough call that almost worked out...you know you are giving it away if you pit and you think you might have a chance if you don't....lord hates a coward!

also, best stat of the night...Harvick has only lead a total of 9 laps in the 3 races he's won...that's crazy!

Yeah that's amazing. It just proves that you need to be in the top handful of cars and see how things shake out.

Even in this race, everyone is making out like JR was the car to beat, when he was probably at best the 4th best car of the night- Kenseth, Biffle, and Kayne all had better cars.
