With a handful of laps left, Brad K leads them all into turn one too fast resulting in a bunch of guys wading up their cars.  (Surprised to see that almost all were judging how fast they could go in by the guy in front of them/alongside them. -Good thing there wasn't a cliff involved or about 6 guys would have went over the edge.)

The finish between Truex and Johnson was one for the newsreel for the next few decades....  Jimmie went for the win, and in doing so, cost himself a shot at another championship, but as Clint Bowyer said afterwards, when you see the checkered flag, you gotta go for it....  Kyle Larson (who was in the Brad K lemmings wreck) had pretty much lost his chance at advancing to the next round, until some last lap heroics with badly twisted racecar, where he actually had to use the wall to make his car turn left.  He managed to pass by the sitting car of Jeffrey Earnhardt yards away from the checkered flag, to get the one point he needed to keep him in the chase or whatever they call it now.  Armirola, Larson and Johnson all ended up with the same amount of points, and Johnson lost on the tie breaker system.

Wonder if there were any team orders, or did things happen to quickly to even play that card.  Not sure if they ever showed why Jeffrey Earnhardt never crossed the line...  I saw him begin to pull away from the wall, and then they cut away to something else, and then later showed him just sitting there short of the finish line....
