First off...THANK YOU Michael Waltrip for bringing out the last caution flag..(Just in case I forget to thank you later). The streak is OVER..DONE...Don't want to hear anymore about it. Who cares if JR. went 76 races without a points win ?? Guess what ?? JR. won at Michigan...Let me repeat that....JR. WON AT MICHIGAN. THANK YOU  Michael Waltrip !! That was probably the most nerve wracking last five laps I have watched in a long time. Just hate these fuel mileage races and that what it all came down to. Tony Jr. made a gutsy call and it paid off..that's how you win races and championships. Dale sr. would be proud...even more so on this day. Didn't see anything too exciting about this race except for the last few laps. There was alot more side by side racing than I thought there would be and on the restarts they were always three or four wide and that kept things rather entertaining.Again..Thanks to Michael Waltrip for bringing out that last caution. Now the order of finish...Dale Earnhardt Jr. brought home the checkered flag...with Kasey Kahne again with another strong finish in second..the first of the Roush cars (BOO...HISS) of Matt Kenseth (BOO..HISS) came in a solid third...Brian Vickers proved that last week at Pocono was no fluke came in fourth...Tony Stewart finally showed up in a race and finished fifth...and rounding out that second five are...Jimmie Johnson..sixth...Carl Edwards (BOO..HISS) came in seventh...Davin Ragan(BOO..HISS) eighth...Elliott Sadler placed nineth..and Jamie McMurray(BOO..HISS) rounded out the top ten. All in all..a good day for Roush(BOO..HISS)..but an even better day for the 88 car and the 88 team's strong finish also gave them a boost in closing the gap for the points lead..it's now less than 100 points...last I saw it was Jr. in third in points 84 back..Jeff Burton second less the 50 points from the lead. Watch out ..here comes Eardhardt......Again...THANK YOU Michael waltrip
