In a valiant late move to take no fresh tires opposed to two like the rest of the field, Matt Kenseth was able to hold off Clint Bowyer and Jamie McMurray to clinch yet another win.

I was hoping to see a Jeff Gordon victory for my birthday, but obviously that didn't happen. Jimmie Johnson dominated throughout the day but a late wreck caused him to restart outside the top 20. Johnson rallied to finish ninth, right behind Gordon in eighth.

Kenseth, who's won four this year, has shown some serious success and stiff competition for Jimmie Johnson who's looking for his sixth championship this year.

Next week, the NASCAR drivers head to Daytona for some Saturday night lights action.
