The Sprint Cup is basically over for the year. Denny Hamlin is clearly driving the fastest car on the track. At every restart he just burns the field - no one can use the opportunity to catch him. This points lead will only increase before the Chase is done.
Edit: Eating my words on this one. Hamlin's late pit stop hurt, as he finished 12th, and Johnson saved fuel like a pro, even gaining a spot or two at the end as he coasted to 5th. Great drive by Carl Edwards for the win.
