Banking/Turns: 31 degrees Distance: 2.5 miles Shape: Tri-Oval The Daytona Shootout began as the Busch I Clash and was a fifty-mite "all-out sprint." In its current format, it is made up of two seg- ments: a short 25-lap segment, followed by a ten-minute intermission. After the inter- mission, the race oondudes with a 50-lap segment in which each car must make a green flag pit stop. The race, like the Spnnt All-Star Challenge, carries no points for the winner but rather a large purse. This is supposed to encourage an all-out driving style not seen in regular-season races, where one serious mistake may hurt a driver's overall points standings. 2009 Chase for the Cup P_dy Poi.ts 1) Jimmie Johnson 6652 2) Mark Martin 6511 3) Jeff Gordon 6473 4) Kurt Busch 6446 5) Denny Hamlin 6335 6) Tony Stewart 6309 7) Greg Biffle 6292 8) Juan Montoya 6252 9) Ryan Newman '6175 10) Kasey Kahne 6128 11) Carl Edwards 6118 12) Bnan Vickers 5929 2009 Nationwide Series Dver Poi.ts 1) Kyle Busch 5682 2) Cad Edward 5472 3) Brad Keselowski 5364 4) Jason Leffler 4540 5) Mike Bliss 4075 6) Justin AIIgaier 4049 7) Steve Wallace 4007 8) Jason Keller 3960 9) Brendan Gaughan 3914 10) Michael Annatt 3598 Driver Start Finish Points/Bonus Lastyear, JimmieJohnsonbecamethefcstdrivertowfour Denny Hamlin 38 1 195/10 Jeff Burton 26 2 175/5 Kevin Harvick 6 3 170/5 Kurt Busch 12 4 16515 Jimmie Johnson 1 5 16015 Jeff Gordon 20 6 150/0 Carl Edward 24 7 14610 Kyle Busch 30 8 14715 Martin Truex Jr. 14 9 13810 A.J.

He became the first rookie in Cup history to ever lead the point standing. Johnson finished second in the 2004 Cup standings.

In 2006, Jimmie Johnson won his first Cup Championship with a stretch of top five finishes in the Chase for the Cup. In 2007, Johnson entered The Chase as the leader and became the first dri- ver to win ten times in a season since Jeff Gordon, who did it three consecutive years.

Last year, he entered The Chase in third place, but moved into first place by the fourth week and held off Cad Edwards to win his third consecutive Cup Championship. This year, Johnson again began the Chase in third place and moved into first after the fourth race. He became the first driver in NASCAR history to win four consecutive championships.
