Also Chad Blount wins the ARCA race, so a Dodge dual win.

Now Dodge can shutup about any aero help. This kid looks like he he has a good future.

Wow! Isn't this a story! In only his second Nascar Winston Cup race he wins the UAW-GM Quality 400 taking the Coors #40 silver bullet to victory lane! Good to see Dodge taking the checkered flag again.
And what a great guy that kid is! Watched his interview right after the race, and he was torqued! How many times did he say "Drink Coors!"??!! :biggrin:

A great day !!! Also got the Penske announcement which is also great news.

Dodge does an aero disadvantage- re:Winston Cup Scene from the wind tunnel tests done in June / July. They also had 50 hp taken away (announced mid-May - in effect July). GM & Ford have had 6-8 aero changes since the summer.

Ford and GM always piss and moan. They still remember about the King R. Petty , 426 hemi`s and Charger Daytona`s and Superbirds.

I've watched him run the Craftsman Trucks and Busch, and he looked good but didn't win. He had pretty good stuff and was capable of having strong runs.

I have to admit while watching Sunday as he stayed out to get the lead, well, I figured he'd go back in the pack once they ran some laps.

Yet the kid stayed there, made his mistake and Labonte still couldn't get around him. By then I knew we had it.

He got great restarts, too, which has been somewhat of a problem for the Dodge's.
