Kevin Harvick Wins All Star Challenge

Kevin Harvick wins All Star Challenge
I thought Gordon was going to have something for Harvick, but Gordon had a tire go down and ended up finishing 11th. Johnson had a run on Harvick on the final lap, but could not complete the pass; he finished second, with Mark Martin, who said Johnson was a heck of a race car driver, finishing third. The good thing for Harvick’s crew is he said he would share the million dollars with them if they won the race. There are some happy wives in Charlotte tonight.

An interesting wreck happened earlier, when Kyle Busch made a big run on Kurt Busch, who was passing another car, Kurt didn’t give him any room, they touched and Kyle lost the rear end of his car which came around and knocked Kurt into the wall, taking out his own brother. I did not catch an interview with Kyle, but they did catch up to Kurt, with Dick Bergren calling him Kyle and then apologizing really quickly, hehe. Kurt said maybe he should’ve given him a little room, but, it’s the all star race. He said he would be talking to Kyle about it and that he would not be eating any Corn Flakes for awhile.

Matt Kenseth won two segments and Kyle Busch won the other. I guess I was wrong on my prediction, had Gordon not had the flat tire, I think it would’ve been pretty close. We’ll see what happens in the Coca Cola 600 next week, but, it looks good for Hendrick Motorsports again, if you ask me.

Here is how they finished:
1 4 29 Kevin Harvick
2 2 48 Jimmie Johnson
3 18 01 Mark Martin
4 5 31 Jeff Burton
5 17 20 Tony Stewart
6 20 70 Johnny Sauter
7 1 17 Matt Kenseth
8 8 12 Ryan Newman
9 10 8 Dale Earnhardt Jr.
10 19 1 Martin Truex Jr.
11 7 24 Jeff Gordon
12 13 44 Dale Jarrett
13 14 83 Brian Vickers
14 11 9 Kasey Kahne
15 12 16 Greg Biffle
16 21 78 Kenny Wallace
17 9 11 Denny Hamlin
18 16 25 Casey Mears
19 3 2 Kurt Busch
20 6 5 Kyle Busch
21 15 43 Bobby Labonte

I told you Sauter would finish well. ;)
