News & Notes

This is the final race before the Chase for the Sprint Cup

Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr look for their first wins of the season so they can have bonus points going into the Chase

Tony Stewart is currently the only driver inside the top ten in points who is not locked into the Chase, he is guaranteed a Chase bid however

Kasey Kahne looks to keep hold of the No.1 Wild Card Spot

Carl Edwards needs to win the race and other drives need have difficulties for Edwards’s to make the Chase

Marcos Ambrose, Ryan Newman and Joey Logano all need to win to make the Chase

If Kyle Busch finishes inside the top ten he should be in the Chase. Busch can also win and make the Chase

Jeff Gordon needs to win or Kyle Busch needs to have difficulties for Gordon to make the Chase

Denny Hamlin looks to win three races in a row

My Fantasy Racing Picks

Group A- Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick

Group B- Marcos Ambrose, Ryan Newman, Clint Bowyer, Kasey Kahne
