Non-Chaser of Note: Mark Martin

Joey Logano may have been the non-chaser with the best finish at Dover. 

But Mark Martin passed the most cars.

While several chasers did a slow slide to the rear, Martin and his No. 5 Chevy kept movin' on up like George and Weezie - from 42nd to 12th.

Passing 30 cars is a good day's work for a driver.  It's just too bad Martin had to start in the back.  If he had kept his original third qualifying spot, he could well have netted his first victory of the season.

Just how good was Martin's Dover performance? 

He hasn't passed this many cars since the June 2009 race at Michigan - where he started 32nd and ended with a win.

Not too shabby.
