Chase for the Cup
The Chase kicks off Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. Denny Hamlin holds the points lead over five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson. Defending champion Tony Stewart is third.
Some of NASCAR’s biggest names are trying to keep their championship hopes alive and the Chase for the Sprint Cup is still about a month away.
Busch was suspended last weekend by NASCAR for intentionally wrecking Ron Hornaday Jr. under caution at Texas.
NASCAR has made two rule changes for next month’s race at Talladega Superspeedway that should limit the length of time two cars can draft together.
Tony Stewart ended his season-long funk, winning for the first time this year in the opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
NASCAR has used various point systems since its inception in 1949, but adopted its current structure in 1975.
Just 38 points separate leader Johnson from third-place Harvick, making it the closest margin among the top-three drivers with three races to go since NASCAR began its playoff format for its top-tier series in 2004. Hamlin is 14 points in back of Johnson.
Denny Hamlin moved to within six points of Jimmie Johnson in the championship Chase after winning Sunday’s Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.
