Mark Martin scored the win at Chicago one year ago and Chicago has seen some wild finishes over the last two years with Kyle Busch passing Jimmie Johnson in 2008 in a green white checker finish and just last year Johnson and Hamlin made contact and then Brian Vickers go into Hamlin and that allowed Mark Martin to sneak by for the victory.
