He has finished in the top-5 in five others. "We had some odd luck [this year]". We just didn't capitalize.
After finishing second to Martin Truex Jr.at Watkins Glen International: "Honestly, I don't even think about the playoffs". If we would have ran like that all year, like we did the last several years, we would have made it, but we didn't. We haven't had to fight to get in the playoffs in a long time.
"You're going to be disappointed if you don't make the playoffs", Earnhardt said earlier this year. "We had a long-run auto that was really fast, and the guys did a great job".
Busch is a four-time victor of this race, as well as the defending champion. "There'll be a big hurt in your heart, because you feel like you deserved to be in that group". His disappointing farewell season of only one top-five and four top-10 finishes ranks as one of his worst seasons through 18 years in the series.

"That's all we could do to try and win", he said.
"The way the playoffs look right now, we're not out of this thing", Bowyer said. "So, yeah, no, we aren't real comfortable with it just because in that position you are not really guaranteed anything".
Kenseth will start the race two points behind Chase Elliott and one point ahead of Jamie McMurray for the final three spots and, with 13 drivers winning races this season, that gives them the next three spots based on the point standings. "When you race with Kyle, you race with the best".
Earnhardt was without his regular crew chief for Richmond.
Speaking of Hamlin, his win last weekend at Darlington has been encumbered and he's been docked 25 driver's points due to an L-1 penalty assessed to the No. 11 team with crew chief Mike Wheeler suspended two races for a rear suspension violation in post-race inspection. Vehicle chief Travis Mack served as interim crew chief on Saturday.
