Johnson steals Martinsville, but Gordon still leads the Chase.

Not that it matters because the points will be reset. This format screws consistency. Thanks Kenseth.

Jimmy Johnson made a hell of a move on Denny Hamlin to take over first and never look back. Gordon lead early, and fooled me into believing that he would put his winless streak to an end, but not so much. At the end of the day, a fourth place finish is not too shabby. Especially when you consider that Gordon entered Martinsville with a 76 point lead over Kurt Busch, but left with a 89 points cushion over Clint Bowyer.

As I said, it is really all for naught unless the 24 car starts winning some races. The points bonus will be too much to overcome once they enter the Chase.
