Kyle Busch won the Shootout after he saved his car twice, both times he was completely sideways, and still somehow managed to save his car. Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart hooked up on the backstretch on the final lap of the race, and coming to the line, Kyle passed Stewart and beat him to the line by .013 seconds.

Tonight's race showed that pack racing was officially back, but the only problem is, you cant go to the left side of the bumpers on the cars, or you will cause a wreck. Multiple wrecks took place tonight, it only took nine laps for the first big one to happen, David Ragan got into the back of Paul Menard which sent them spinning, in the mix of that Matt Kenseth and Michael Waltrip were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Michael Waltrip was unable to continue the race, so he went up to the "Hollywood Hotel" to watch the race.

McMurray was the leader at the end of the 25 lap segment, the drivers then took a ten minute break and went back racing for another 50 laps where more accidents occurred.

Another one of the big accidents was with a few laps to go. This accident collected Johnson, J. Gordon, Kurt Busch and a few others. This accident sent J. Gordon sideways where he slid for a good amount time on the drivers side, the car then did some barrel rolls and landed on its roof. Jeff Climbed out from the car while it was still on its roof and was released from the infield care center. Kurt Busch was told to do whatever he had to do to try to win the race, Kurt just came up a few laps short as he was marching to the front when he was involved in this wreck.

Another wreck which was in the middle of the event collected Dale Jr., Joey Logano, Matt Kenseth, Martin Truex Jr. and set Harvick's car on fire. This wreck started when Marcos Ambrose got a little too far to the left of Joey Logano's bumper which sent Logano spinning.

After seeing all the wrecks in the shootout tonight, I think NASCAR should take a look into enforcing some rule or telling the drivers to stay off the left side of the car, but yet it is all common sense not to do that. But what I think NASCAR needs to do, is allow the drivers to tune into other drivers spotters in front of them so the driver in the back knows what is happening in front of them.
