  • Complete Results

The MBNA NASCAR RacePoints 400 was held on September 25 at Dover International Speedway. Ryan Newman sat on the pole and won the Busch Series race the day before. Several Chase for the Cup contenders had difficulties with tire problems that caused them to finish poorly, including Matt Kenseth (35th), Greg Biffle (13th) and Kurt Busch (23rd), who led the most laps in the race. Jimmie Johnson battled his teammate Kyle Busch at the end of the race, but Johnson was able to hold on to win. With the win, Johnson moves into the lead in the Chase for the Nextel Cup.

The race was extended by five laps because of the green-white-checker finish rule.
