Cool thing #1: Last regular season race and busch chokes and doesn't make the chase. Gordon hung on and raced his way into a wildcard spot along w/Kahne.

Well, it was the LAST lap, w/him getting passed for the lead- and the BEST part was, he put himself into the wall!! Beautiful ending IMO. Of course he left w/o an interview.

Cool thing #2: Something I've noticed is that during and after the race yesterday, busch wasn't mentioned hardly at all. In fact, other than calling out the starting grid, I don't recall hearing his name. Seems like the networks have countered his "screw you, I'm going home" attitude when he refuses to give a statement/interview when he does poorly (which is much of the time, it seems), by simply shunning him. Brilliant IMO- you don't want to talk to us? Fine, we don't need to promote you or your sponsors. And you can bet that ain't gonna fly w/the coach or w/the sponsors!
