Why did the Chase drivers finish where they did?

Sporting News;12/2/2005, Vol. 229 Issue 48, p56
The article analyzes and grades the performances of the automobile racing drivers and their teams in the Chase for the Nascar Nextel Cup. For the first time since graduating to Cup, Greg Biffle was a player all season. But the consistency the No. 16 enjoyed early in the season dissipated as the Chase progressed. Carl Edwards exceeded all expectations with four victories and two poles. Jimmy Johnson continued to be an excellent qualifier who saves his car for when he needs it most during a race.
