You didn't miss much of a race. Aside from Gordon passing Busch, it was dominated by that massive crash and all the drivers who were knocked out of contention. There was a overwhelming amount of discussion of tire strategy.

That's why I skipped Phoenix, rcade. At least half of the tracks on the circuit are just plain boring to watch, imho. Daytona, Talladega and Bristol are awesome tho.

Even better was that he passed Kyle Busch AND Tony Stewart to take the lead. Also liked the way Busch hastened to apologize to Carl Edwards after the race for wrecking him. I do not like that fish-faced little man...not one bit.
