Margin;
134.059 MPH Ave. Speed) Football may be a game of inches, but Cup racing is
becoming a game of MPGs. Ryan Newman's #12 AllTel/Penske Racing South
Dodge had
it, and the #29 Goowrench/Richard Childress Racing Chevy of Kevin Harvick
didn't. Both Harvick and Newman pitted on lap 198 while leading, and Newman
returned to the fray first, solidifying his lead on lap 210 when all the
cars ahead
of him pitted under caution. Meanwhile Harvick worked back into ssecon on lap
225, and was close behind when a restart came at lap 240. Then three laps from
the end, Harvick's Chevrolet ran out of gas, boosting Tony Stewart's #20 Home
Depot/Joe Gibbs Racing Chevrolet to second, Jimmie Johnson's #48 Lowe's Home
Improvement/Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, to third, Johnson's teammate Jeff
Gordon in the #24 DuPont Refinishes Chevrolet to fourth, and Michael Waltrip's
