Five Points to Ponder: 2009 Autism Speaks 400 at Dover Edition

*Scott impresses* Jimmie Johnson’s win in this week’s Cup Series event at Dover may not have been a surprise... but the results across the two other national series at the one-mile oval certainly were. Brad Keselowski was in the right spot at the right time in Saturday’s Nationwide race when Joey Logano got into Kyle Busch, who was restarting from the lead with just a handful of laps to go. It was only career win No. 3 for Keselowski in the series, who is expected to make the full-time jump to Sprint Cup in 2010.

Tracking the Trucks: 2009 AAA Insurance 200 at Dover

*Who Should Have Won:* Kyle Busch. Busch started 10th and wasted no time working his way to the front, passing multiple cars on the first lap after the green flag flew. Numerous times, Kyle Busch made the same moves throughout the race, always resulting in him pulling into the lead. Busch went on to lead the most laps--133 of 200--before a right front tire failure and the resulting hard hit on the outside wall ended his run to the win. The driver of the No. 51 Miccosukee Resort and Gaming Toyota was left to settle for a 9th place finish.

Tracking the Trucks: 2008 Ford 200 at Homestead

*In a Nutshell:* Todd Bodine took the checkered flag 0.232 seconds ahead of rookie Brian Scott to win the Ford 200 Friday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway. After starting 18th, Bodine took the lead with just four laps remaining and held on through a green/white/checkered finish to score his third win this season. Meanwhile, Johnny Benson finished one position ahead of Ron Hornaday to win the Truck Series championship by seven points (Benson was seventh, Hornaday eighth). *Who Should Have Won: Kyle Busch.* Busch started ninth after leading the final practice, but a dragging splitter required a pit stop under caution on lap six. Following that stop, the driver of the No. 51 wasted no time moving to the front. He went on to lead 64 laps, but didn't quite have the muscle at the end in dropping to a fourth place finish.
