Running Their Mouth: 2007 Gateway 250

"It's been a long time since we won, and we knew we had a good shot coming in here. Everybody on the team was real excited about coming in here, and the car was just dominant all night. I'm just real proud of everybody. We knew we had a good car after practice - we didn't know it was going to be this good, though." _Reed Sorenson on his Busch Series victory_ "I don't know who's driving the 24 - he looks like a 10-year-old out there. He waved me by, then he ran into me." _Mike Bliss on 18-year-old Landon Cassill_ "(As far as the wreck), I was down on the yellow line as far as I could go, where I was supposed to be.

Kahne took the season sweep at the track over Lowe's legend Jimmie Johnson, who placed second; point leader Burton, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Bobby Labonte rounded out the top five finishers.

Busch Series Breakdown: 2006 Dover 200

Passing leader Matt Kenseth on lap 179, Clint Bowyer held on over the final 25 laps to take his first win of 2006 in overtime at Dover. Bowyer sailed out to a safe lead after getting by Kenseth, but for awhile it looked like he might come up short again when he got tied up in lapped traffic, allowing Kenseth to climb right back up on his back bumper. Teammate Kevin Harvick finished third, followed by Jamie McMurray and Jason Leffler to round out the top five.
