Pep Boys Auto 500 - Atlanta Motor Speedway

Edwards Wins at Atlanta; Johnson Finishes 2nd
Even in victory, Carl Edwards looked deflated when he was told that Chase for the Sprint Cup leader Jimmie Johnson had finished second in Sunday’s Pep Boys Auto 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. “Are you kidding me?” Edwards asked incredulously after taking the checkered flag 2.684 seconds ahead of Teflon Johnson, who recovered from an early pit-road speeding penalty to snag second place, thanks to a brilliant call for tires by Chad Knaus during the 10th and final caution of the race. “Man, Jimmie’s magic,” added Edwards, who jumped two spots into second in the championship standings and trails Johnson by 183 points with three races left in the Chase. “We’ve got to win those next three and hope for the best.”

Another Rainout Gives Johnson Pole in Atlanta
For the third straight week, the fourth time in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and the 10th time this season, persistent rain forced cancelation of qualifying for a Cup event. With the field set according to owner points, Jimmie Johnson will start from the pole in Sunday's Pep Boys Auto 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, the seventh race in the Chase. For the third straight week, Johnson not only will have the top starting spot but also will get the first pick of pit stalls -- ensuring he will pit in box No. 1, closest to the exit of pit road.
