Race summary

The pre race ceremonies started with a moment of silence for the fallen coal miners in West Virginia; then Phoenix International Raceway's chaplain Ken Bowers gave the invocation. The national anthem, played on the trumpet, was performed by Dr. Jesse McGuire. To start the engines, professional boxer and grand marshal Laila Ali delivered the command.[10] At 7:46 p.m EST, A.J. Allmendinger, in the pole position, led the field for the green flag. After 14 laps, the first caution came out because Kasey Kahne and Kurt Busch made contact. On lap 22, Ryan Newman led them to the green flag, but the second caution came out one lap later because Jamie McMurray spun out. On the restart, on lap 29, Tony Stewart led them to the green flag. Stewart led until Juan Pablo Montoya passed him on lap 38. Then on lap 58, Brian Vickers spun and slammed the outside wall bringing out the third caution. Montoya led them to the restart on lap 63. After the restart the race went green flag for 72 laps.[11]

During the long run, Jimmie Johnson passed Montoya on lap 130 as green flag pit stops were under way. Montoya received the lead after the pit stops, but a lap later the fourth caution came out because of debris. The green flag was given on lap 148, with Montoya the leader. On lap 149, Jimmie Johnson passed Montoya for the lead. After the lead change, the race underwent a green flag run until lap 190 when the fifth caution came out as a result of oil on the track in turn two. Everyone on the lead lap made changes to their car; Jimmie Johnson kept the lead coming off pit road. Shortly after the restart on lap 196, the sixth caution came out because Brad Keselowski slammed into the wall. The restart happened on lap 201 with Jimmie Johnson the leader. After the restart, the race had a run of green flag laps which ended because of the seventh caution on lap 256, caused by David Reutimann spinning out.[11]

On the restart after the seventh caution, Jimmie Johnson led them to the flag on lap 262, but because of a faulty restart, Kyle Busch passed him. After the restart, the race had a 52 lap green flag run which ended because of the eighth caution due to Travis Kvapil's engine problems. The restart occurred on lap 321, with Kyle Busch in the lead. Kyle Busch led until lap 372 when the ninth caution came out because Scott Riggs had tire problems. All the leaders pitted, but while the top six replaced two tires, the rest changed all four. On the restart, Jeff Gordon led them to the green flag with two laps to go. Ryan Newman passed Gordon before taking the white flag. Newman won his first race since the 2008 Daytona 500. The win was also his first of the 2010 season.[11]
