Counting down to the triple-header NASCAR weekend at Texas Motor Speedway:
3 Consecutive years the winner of the Atlanta Chase race has won the next week at Texas Motor Speedway. Carl Edwards, who won last week at Atlanta, won both races in 2005. Tony Stewart won both in 2006, and Jimmie Johnson did it last year as part of a four-race winning streak. Texas was not a Chase track in 2004, the first year the Chase format was used to determine the champion.
