"You're going to be disappointed if you don't make the playoffs", Earnhardt said earlier this year. 88 Hendrick Motorsports crew brought a solid vehicle, said Earnhardt. "We just haven't been able to get it to go our way", he said.

"If we win, your (media) guys' fingers will be burning up on those keyboards".

Daniel Hemric and Elliott Sadler rounded out the top five. Driving up to as high as fifth, Earnhardt caught the race lead in the closing stages when the No. 88 team chose to stretch tires and fuel on a shot at winning. We'll try these next 10 to keep running well. "I don't think we could outrun the top three". "We had a long-run vehicle that was really fast, and the guys did a great job". "We are certainly in a tight spot. So, yeah, no, we aren't real comfortable with it just because in that position you are not really guaranteed anything". "We had to try something". Keselowski's pass came in heavy lapped traffic and marked the third time he'd used a superior auto to catch Busch on a long run.

And when chaos ensued with Martin Truex Jr. crashing hard in Turn 1 on the final lap, Earnhardt slipped through with a front-row seat to the impact.

"I'm disappointed", Earnhardt said after a 13th-place finish. We just have to get faster.

Another wild scene out his windshield Saturday night occurred under caution, when the field approached an ambulance truck parked at pit road entry.

"We know what we have to do", Logano said on Friday morning. The NASCAR Foundation says they will match all proceeds that come from the sale of The Chaos Dog.

"When I look at those things, I feel confident that this is a track if we do everything right, (and) it won't be easy by any means, but if we do everything right, we can squeak one out". I think it's fairly close back there.

Kenseth's approach to this race is simple - run well and get the win if you can.

As Matt Kenseth didn't get a second radiator, Earnhardt will not get another shot at a NASCAR Cup Series championship. Even Brad Keselowski, sixth in the standings with a 14.2 average finish, can't seem to make the jump from the top-10 to top-5s.

Despite the negatives, Saturday brought the warm return of competitive pace, something that has been tough to find from the No. 88 bunch this year. He clinched the regular-season title with 895 total points, which also gives him a 15-point playoff bonus. "We had some odd luck, but when we didn't have bad luck, we didn't capitalize". We haven't had to fight to get in the playoffs in a long time. "Hopefully, we can get a good run, get in the playoffs, kind of get hot when we need to".

"You come to all these race tracks with an urgency to win, just like we did at the Daytona 500", Bowyer said.
