Dover: Dodge NASCAR Nextel Cup Race Recap

Sleeping Monster Wakes Up 14 Laps Too Soon

It appeared that the Monster took the weekend off, but 14 laps from the finish six Dodges were collected in a 12-car-accident.

Kurt Busch, Dodge's only driver in The Chase, was part of that on-trace mishap and now ranks 11th in the standings, 157 points out of the lead.

Carl Edwards won the race and created a logjam at the top – at least for now because Edward's car did not pass post-race inspection. Fines possible and point deductions will be handed down later this week.

Roolkie Juan Pablo Montoya finished ahead of all the other Dodge drivers with a 10th-place run in his No. 42 Texaco Dodge at the track known as the Monster Mile.

For now there's no room at the top of The Chase; Jeff Gordon leads by one point over Tony Stewart, three points over Edwards (stayed tuned) and Kyle Busch 10 points back.
