With 15 laps to go, pole-sitter Juan Pablo Montoya took a lick into the wall, then bumped Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the way into pit road. That prompted the yellow caution flag. Kevin Harvick took the lead at that point.
Montoya led the race for 86 laps, but appeared to be headed to the garage with just 15 laps to go. That’s two years he’d led the race in laps but came away without the trophy.
