November 2 – – Jimmie Johnson all but clinched his fourth consecutive Cup series championship with a 6th place finish at Talladega Superspeedway, in a race where he ran out of the lead pack in 30th for the balance of the day. Jeff Gordon took the opposite strategy and led the Amp Energy 500 on several occasions, but he ran out of fuel under caution with 3 laps to go. He was pushed back to pit road, but restarted deep in the field. Gordon was swept up in a last lap crash and now trails Johnson by more than 200 points with just three races remaining. “I’m glad we ran out of fuel when we did so we could get back out there and destroy our car,” Gordon said sarcastically after the race.
