Clint Bowyer needed Jimmie Johnson to make a mistake in the closing laps. He didn't expect it to happen and it didn't as Bowyer settled for second at Bristol.

Kyle Busch wrecked out of the race at Bristol Motor Speedway after 383 laps and a second tire problem of the day. Busch has had tire problems several times this year and did at last August's race at Bristol. Busch said he wouldn't talk to Goodyear about the issue. Busch: "I just really have no idea why the fastest car out there keeps blowing a tire. We were coming through the field twice. If people want to see racing and people coming from the back to the front, you've got to have tires that can last."

Bristol Motor Speedway is adding traction compound to the lower groove for the race today. The resin will increase grip for the NASCAR Cup race, rescheduled for 1:07 p.m. ET today after heavy rains Sunday. The question will be whether it will be faster than the upper groove -- and how much the grooves will change throughout the 500-lap event.
