And while 9 points separate 6th from 10th in the points, 10th is 46 up on Carl Edwards. Looking like barring a major collapse, that the top 10 are set and now it's wildcard jockeying.

And moreover, WC1 is set. It looks like Edwards, Busch, Logano, Newman, and (maybe) Gordon are all that are really relevant, with all 11 other drivers going for wins, as that's the only thing that can help.

if KyBu and Newman both get a 2nd win, is possible for them to pass Kahne, so not a lock yet.

Danica, by the way, quietly had a very solid run yesterday.

43 cars showed up, so all were in the field, quals only set the lineup.

From what I heard, they were behind the wall for the first 20 laps of the race, and started that far in a hole.

Wow! Osbourne and Edwards split.

Nearly eight months after coming within a point of winning their first Sprint Cup Series championship, driver Carl Edwards and crew chief Bob Osborne are splitting up.

Roush Fenway Racing on Tuesday announced Chad Norris is Edwards’ new crew chief on the No. 99 Ford, effective immediately.

Osborne will remain with the organization as a senior member of the organization’s management team and steering committee.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Carl Edwards for the past nine years and, during that time, my focus has been building a championship-caliber program," Osborne said in a statement. "I’m proud of the 18 wins we’ve had together in Sprint Cup Series competition and our two second-place points finishes.

"At this time in my life, however, concerns with my health have necessitated that I change my role within the organization."

Osborne did not go into further detail and said he appreciated the "privacy and respect" from the NASCAR community.

Wow, that's surprising, considering Edwards just signed an extension last August with Osborne. "Health concerns", eh?

The #2 winner in the Chase is seriously cursed. Edwards-Osbourne's season really mirrors Hamlin-Ford last year.

2012 - Edwards is horrible, likely misses Chase
2011 - Hamlin Horrible, 1 win, awful in Chase
2010 - Martin misses Chase
2009 - Edwards finishes 11
2008 - Gordon 0 wins finishes 6th

Good to see Jr's point lead last longer than the last time he had it (2 days thanks a 25 point penalty for swearing after winning the October 2004 talladega race, which dropped him to 2nd in points - the penalty along with an unfortunate incident with rookie Carl Edwards at Atlanta would doom their title hopes).

Looking like 48/18 might be cars to beat this weekend at Pocono.

Earnhardt was fastest in final practice, no? He has an extremely fast car.

Johnson will wreck at Talladega this Fall and still win the Chase. Just give him the trophy.

Hate to see Earnhardt out of the race, but he's had a pretty incredible season thus far without any bad luck. I'd rather it happen now than two months from now.

KuBu wrecks -- again. He has just destroyed that fleet of Phoenix Cars.

Hopefully strategy will some how cost Johnson the race. Not that I dislike Johnson, quite the contrary, but the man is just dominant.

Hamlin comes. So now I pray the rain slams the brakes and some how the 30 cars in front of him have to pit.

It'll be a shame if Newman makes the Chase over KyBu or Gordon, IMO.

Awesome, Gordon deserved this after two seasons of cars being drawn to him like a magnet and knocking him out too many times.
