Finally Someone New!

As the Green Flag waved, Jaimie McMurray led the field. Jaimie wasn't able to lead the first lap, as usual, Jimmie Johnson took the lead. On lap 39, David Stremme hit the wall. On the restart, Jimmie led the field. When the Green Flag pit stops began, Jaimie was able to retake the lead from Jimmie when he missed his pit box.

On lap 129, the caution came out for debris in Turn Two. Jaimie McMurray and Jimmie Johnson led the pack to the Green Flag. On lap 137, Jimmie Johnson just spun out while racing with Martin Truex Jr.

Lap 166, Jeff Gordon took the lead. Lap 180, Bill Elliott went up into the wall and got hit by Robby Gordon, who wasn't able to stop to avoid crashing into him. Lap 189, Jeff Gordon leads until lap 213, when David Reutimann took the lead. After the Green Flag pit stops cycled through, Reutimann regained the lead.

As the Checkered Flag waved, David Reutimann won the 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. Carl Edwards, Jeff Gordon, Clint Bowyer and Jaimie McMurray rounded out your Top Five!

There's also a battle going on between Mark Martin and Juan Pablo Montoya. Montoya wasn't happy with the way Martin passed him on the last lap for the fifteenth position. "He didn't like the way I passed him there on the last lap, borderline stupid driving and suggested I take some smart driving lessons from him," Martin said while walking briskly from his No. 5 hauler to the motor home lot. Soon after that, Martin said, "I ain't gonna take no s**t." "I gave him room out of four and we got into one and he nearly wrecked me, nearly wrecked us both," Montoya said before being driven away on a golf cart. I personally think that Montoya lost most of his fans, if he had any.

Hopefully next week's race, is a little bit more entertaining!
