As the chase moves through Charlotte and gets ready to set up in Kansas, there are several things we learned from the Bank of America 500.
Saving fuel would prove to be the key to victory on Saturday night, not horse power. The chase standings would also change, as Clint Bowyer emerged as the one driver to watch.
Brad Keselowski might have maintained his points lead, but Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin were able to make up some ground they lost at Talladega.
Regan Smith would suffer some bad luck as he ended up in the garage before he had even run 100 laps at Charlotte. We would also see the re-debut of A.J. Allmendinger as he was able to get a ride with Phoenix Racing for at least the Charlotte race.
Several divers would slide even further down the chase standings, and as NASCAR moves into Kansas, the chase drivers are separating even more.
With Charlotte over and in the books, it's time to take a look at 10 lessons we learned by the time the checkered flag waved.
