STANDINGS: UPDATED STANDINGS TO ENTER CHASE
At the halfway point it was Keselowski up front. On lap 225 Gordon was forced to pit road with problems with a loose right front tire, losing two laps in the process. Gordon would earn one lap back under green and benefited from a debris caution to get the other.
In the end Joey Logano would make the Chase by taking the wave around knocking Jeff Gordon out.
