Media votes for Top 10 moments of season

I think the Jeff Gordon Atlanta win over Jimmie Johnson was a better race than Stewarts win in Miami.  Stewart was never really challenged in the last 30 laps.  He would have had to make some huge mistake for Edwards to get up to him.  The Atlanta race was back and forth, side by side, sliding all over the track.  It wasn't decided until the last turn.
