Jimmie Johnson's NASCAR team takes the lead at Texas Speedway. Jeff Gordon lead has evaporated in the chase. After leading the chase for the first six weeks Gordon loses the lead. After winning three races in a row Jimmie Johnson goes up by 30 points. Jeff Gordon finishes seventh after leading the race for several laps early in the race. If the Lowe's Motor Sports team keeps on this roll they will walk away with the cup. There are only three races left with only about 5 of the 12 racers able to win. I think it's a two car chase and Gordon has to start betting Johnson.
Both the Hendricks cars are running great. Dale Jr, must be really excited to be coming to the Hendricks team next year. He will lose his number 8 car and will go to 88 with the new team. He will be missed on the DEI team.
