Reutimann had a strong run going until late contact set him back, and he ultimately finished 17th. It was not easy, nor was it pretty for this team when it all was said and done.It is nice to see him running well every week He is a talented driver and capable of winning races. With the equipment he is getting, I would not be surprised to see him steal a win down the stretch.Points: 16thBobby LabonteSunday was the last race for Bobby Labonte to run the No 96 car as the remaining races he will run in the No 71. So what did Labonte do He went out finished solidly in the top 15.I was a little surprised by Labonte and his strong run on Sunday It is not that he is not capable of his 13th-place finish. His team was able to make adjustments on the car and keep him in the top 10 for most of the race. This has been something that they have struggled with at times this season.Labonte and his team put together some great pit stops and took advantage of the early cautions to work on his car. They had solid stops all day long and really worked traffic well.It was surprising that he was replaced in the No.
96 in the first place, but you have to give him credit for not just riding around and battling for a strong finish on Sunday.Points: 31st LosersSam Hornish Jr .If you are Sam Hornish Jr., you want to leave Martinsville as soon as possible. On lap 194, Hornish spun again, this time the damage was worse and was headed to the garage.I keep saying it all year: He has the talent to run up front, but he cannot seem to avoid on-track issues and mechanical problems Hornish has to be frustrated with the weekend he has had. He wrecked two cars and has nothing to show for it.Hornish ended up finishing 36th.It is bad enough to wreck, but when you wreck because of your teammate, it will make for an interesting conversation after the race.Points: 27thDale Earnhardt Jr.The weekend started off very well for Earnhardt's team. They were very fast in practice and they were fast during qualifying.
After the green flag dropped they were in the top 10 before lap 25. The team changed tires and fixed the damage caused by the flat. Earnhardt was the last car one lap down, but tire troubles again forced another caution.On lap 104 he shot up the race track with another tire issue. They were the only driver down at least one lap but not more than two. On the next caution they earned their second lap back.The team though suffered another cut tire during a long green flag run, but this time they were unable to rebound. They finished 29th.Earnhardt fans, it will get better, this goes in cycles.Points: 24thKurt BuschLove him or hate him, Kurt Busch is passionate and he wants to win.
