While some of the Chasers had problems Sunday, none had it worse than Carl Edwards, who blew a tire and crashed on lap 357. The 36th-place finish makes it nearly impossible for Edwards to get into the Championship 4 without winning. Read more
Letter of the Race: Sunday's Goody's Fast Relief 500 was brought to you by the Letter "C," for "Confusion." The 29-lap caution late in Sunday's race during a round of green-flag pit stops completely ruined the flow of the race and made NASCAR look bad. It was not the first time in which a caution has completely screwed up a race, though and definitely not the first race that scoring issues have affected the outcome. It seems that NASCAR didn't learn from past mistakes (Rockingham 1995, Dover 2004 are some recent examples). - Phil Allaway
Quotes to Remember: Goody's Fast Relief 500
"We had a good day, not a great day. The guy doing a great day is the guy doing a burnout. We had a great car, we just got a caution when we didn't need one – we were on pit road and then at the end when we needed a caution, I saw a car hit the wall and a car smoking so I was hoping to get another yellow and get a shot at it, but just didn't get it. The chips just didn't fall our way today, but we had a good car, we led some laps and ran a little better than we finished, but we still got a pretty decent finish out of it." - Matt Kenseth, finished fourth

Jeff Gordon was having a great day until a restart not long before halfway. What happened?
