1. This was the race that changed EVERYTHING for Jimmie.He hadn't won the Big One yet and was known for bad luck in chasing the title (the pace lap with Mark Martin at Talladega 2002, 3 bad races in August 2004, Homestead and Talladega '05) and was coming off a last lap disaster at Talladega that made it seem like it was gonna be close but no cigar and he might be another Mark Martin- great, but no title luck.Then Burton has his issues here (he had been on a hot run before this), Jimmie wins, jumps 4 positions, and gets back in it.Won the big one and really never looked back.

  2. Something to think about this was the only year of Johnson's title years that he only won 1 Chase race. He finished 2nd the next 3 races.
