It's a bit of a bittersweet win for Dodge, because it's their first Cup championship since 1975 when Richard Petty won the title.

I wonder how the Dodge team will do next year.

gone unmentioned: jimmie johnson was going to win the race if not for an engine issue and a separate missed lugnut (which came one-after-the-other). keselowski finished 15th, which would have clinched him the title by two points had jimmie won, but jimmie wouldn't have been out of the race at that point, so keselowski would have finished 16th and won by exactly one point.
