The second photo finish took place Sunday, as Kevin Harvick edged Carl Edwards by a splitter in Phoenix. The finish was reminiscent to just a couple weeks ago at Daytona in which Denny Hamlin just defeated Martin Truex Jr.
What an odd year for Kyle Busch. The 30-year-old driver began the season with a broken leg, missed almost a third of the season's races, comes back and picks up right where he left off, and clinched the Chase. Now, he's a Champion after earning the final win of 2015.
Rain was the biggest player in the game yesterday, in Phoenix of all places, as the race that was scheduled to start in the middle of the afternoon was delayed until the late evening, then was later the cause for the race's end.
It's looking like it's gonna be a hot one in Phoenix after Sunday's race at Texas Motor Speedway. Brad Keselowski virtually led everyone in pretty much every category all day long, but couldn't hold off a faster Jimmie Johnson in the final five laps.
Martinsville has earned the reputation of being a track that tries the patience and temper of drivers and Sunday, Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano continued their feud. The #24 team, however, was strong enough to hold off Jamie McMurray and advance for a shot at the championship.
A shakeup in the rules this week ended up being a huge part of the result of Sunday's race at Talladega, which was the third and final race of the second round of the Chase. Joey Logano broke out his broom and picked up his third win in a row.
