It has been a few days, but I can still write about what happened. Kyle Busch proved why he is still one of the best racers out there. He held off Mark Martin in the last few laps after not being up front most of the night. Mark Martin probably had the best car, but Kyle Busch raced better than he did. He is only 34 points out of being the chase and being very close to the lead once the chase starts after the next two races. He and Brian Vickers might be the only guys that have a realistic shot after Clint Bowyer's struggles and David Reutimann falling farther behind the cut line, if you will. The guys from six on up are more than likely safe to be in the chase unless something very bizarre happens. Everyone from Ryan Newman down is not safe and must walk a very fine line to make the chase. There are two races left for guys to get into the chase or fall out of it. Atlanta and Richmond will be very interesting.
