At Atlanta the top-three remained the same for much of the race -- Harvick, Busch, and Dale Earnhardt Jr., and thatís just the way they finished. Late in the race, Earnhardt Jr. tried a fuel mileage strategy - while most pitted with 10 -15 laps to go for a splash of fuel and a couple of tires, Earnhardt Jr., teammate Brad Keselowski, and Carl Edwards opted to conserve fuel and stay out. They were quickly caught up. "I guess it was the right call, "Said Dale Jr. "We just didn't have enough at the end to hold them off. I tried to get going when they were coming." Keselowski finished in the fourth position, the only non-Sprint Cup regular to post a top-five finish.
