    It was the front end extension that gave him the win. But by far the best last lap race I have ever seen!

    That has to be the best finish I've ever seen in Nascar. I was yelling "Go Ricky Go!!" I think I scared my kids! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That was an incredible finish. My dad was even getting into it and he never watches Nascar (unless he's at my house). I was really disappointed to see Jarrett have a crappy day, but there is always next week.

    I thought the timing devices were in the back of the car?

    0.002 is the equivalent of 3" at those speeds. Talk about close.

    Also, the Busch race had an exciting finish as well!! It seems the Darlington wall got the best of even more cars!!

    Wouldn't know about that but at the replay of the win, they stopped the tape at the finish line and the announcers said it was the front end extension that gave him the win. That was a live quote at the end of the live race.
