#48 did him a big favor by having the troubles and falling back at the end. Otherwise that lead would be so much bigger.
Didn't get to see much of the race, but I don't find it odd that some win poles but not races.
That being said, I think the whole "pole" this is jacked up.. I think cars should be parked after they qualify and they start the race with that package, including fuel level. And if I were forced to compromise, I'd let each care add up to, but not more, than five gallons of gas. Other than that, perhaps, they should start like they qualified..
