I would replace your MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. It's located on the air intake tube. When these sensors go out, it usually limites the engine RPM, at least thats what it does on my Maxima if it goes out.

Will it go past 2k rpm if in neutral?

I would also make sure you don't have a restricted exhuast. Did u shake a piece of your cat converter loose and restrict a exhuast pipe. did this happen right after the pot hole.

did the pot hole have water in it. I have had this problem when a customer when through a pot hole and the air filter was soaked causing no power, low rpms and mass air codes. these filters don;t dry fast and will clog fast when wet
