The Race To The Chase
With seven races to go until the Chase gets underway, and 133 points separating 7th from 15th, there are about nine drivers fighting for six spots.
The drivers in the danger zone are: Greg Biffle, Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick, Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, and Denny Hamlin. The drivers on the outside looking in are Clint Bowyer, Brian Vickers, and David Ragan.
Ryan Newman and Martin Truex Jr. have an outside shot of making it, if other teams have catastrophic meltdowns. But, I consider them to be like those teams the back into the playoffs; they need others to make mistakes in order to get in.
Over the next few days, I plan to analyze which of those teams I think will make it in, as well as who I think will be out.
