Dickies 500 - Texas Motor Speedway

Fuel-Mileage Gamble Pays Off for Edwards
Carl Edwards spent the past week insisting the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup isnít over. Maybe heís right. Squeezing 70 laps out of his last tank of fuel at 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway, Edwards slowed his speed to a relative crawl in the closing laps of Sundayís Dickies 500 and rolled across the finish line 8.31 seconds ahead of Jeff Gordon, who also stretched his fuel mileage. Edwards trimmed 77 points off championship leader Jimmie Johnsonís advantage with two races left in the Chase. Edwards trails Johnson by 106 points as the Cup series heads to Phoenix, where Johnson has won the past two races.

Jeff Gordon Wins First Career Pole at Texas
If Jeff Gordon needed a change of pace to break the spell of his last disastrous tango with Texas Motor Speedway, he found it Friday afternoon. Gordon covered the 1.5-mile distance in 28.652 seconds (188.469 mph) to win the pole for Sunday's Dickies 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race, a good start toward erasing the memory of a 43rd-place finish at TMS in April. Gordon, who never has won at Texas, edged Martin Truex Jr. (188.003 mph) for the top spot in the first qualifying session in four weeks, thanks to three straight rainouts of time trials, at Lowe's Motor Speedway, Martinsville and Atlanta.
