Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Chicago – New Hampshire Edition

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Chicago – New Hampshire Edition

The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup is a chance for 16 of the best drivers to start anew, but with only 10 races, divided into four segments, those drivers have very little time to make an impression and even less room for error before eliminations are made. It’s a fragile state that promises to keep the outlook of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not constantly changing for weeks to come. For now, there remain similarities in this Hot or Not ... Read More »

NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Richmond

NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Richmond

After 26 races and 13 race winners, the 2014 Chase field has been set. Brad Keselowski made a championship statement Saturday night, leading 383 of the 400 laps en route to his season-leading fourth victory. With his win, Keselowski claimed the number one seed as the Chase standing reset heading to Chicago. Results were mixed Saturday night in Richmond, though. Half of the Atlanta Power Rankings top 10 finished in the top 10 this past weekend as well as Ryan ... Read More »

Couch Potato Tuesday: Narrow Focus on Chase Hopefuls Hurts ESPN

Couch Potato Tuesday: Narrow Focus on Chase Hopefuls Hurts ESPN

The Chase was the name of the game last weekend, which is probably how things should be. After all, regardless of one’s opinion of NASCAR’s playoffs, it’s certainly the focal point of the next 10 races, meaning the lead-in is just as important when it comes to determining who gets to play and who’s left out in the cold. But while that emphasis shone through on much of ESPN’s Sprint Cup Series coverage this weekend, one story in particular has ... Read More »

Racing to the Point: Separating the Chase Contenders & Pretenders

Racing to the Point: Separating the Chase Contenders & Pretenders

This new elimination-style playoff format has many people believing that some of the Chase underdogs have a chance at the title as along as they keep their noses clean and survive each round. I want to dispel that rumor right now. The cream is still going to rise to the top, as it always does. With that said, here’s a handy guide to all your Chase competitors, sleepers and also-rans entering Chicagoland. I couldn’t win the title if the rest ... Read More »

Thinkin’ Out Loud: Richmond – The Chase is Set, Brad Keselowski Dominates and a Drunk on a Fence

Thinkin’ Out Loud: Richmond – The Chase is Set, Brad Keselowski Dominates and a Drunk on a Fence

Key Moment – In a race where the winner leads 383 laps, including the final 274 in a row, there really aren’t any key moments in the race. Based on the practice sheets the key moment came between the first practice and the final practice. Brad Keselowski was 14th fastest in 10 lap average in the first practice and second fastest in the final one. The adjustments made by Paul Wolfe and his crew during the break between those two ...

Happiness Is… Drama, Not Fighting & Intelligence

Happiness Is… Drama, Not Fighting & Intelligence

One race to go until the Cup playoffs begin. That seems like a mismatched sentence, putting together autosport and hockey, but alas, that’s how things are now.  This whole season has seemed like one big Chase storyline, beginning with Dale Earnhardt, Jr.’s Daytona 500.  Almost immediately after he crossed the finish line, it felt like everyone could breathe easy because he was locked into the Chase. The Chase, the Chase, the Chase.  Each race with a new winner conceded to ... Read More »

Going By the Numbers: Why Stewart Still Sits In Perfect Chase Position

Going By the Numbers: Why Stewart Still Sits In Perfect Chase Position

When it’s all said and done, Ryan Newman will be part of the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup. But you already figured – perhaps knew – that, didn’t you? After all, all Newman has a 19-point lead on Greg Biffle entering Richmond, the final race before the Chase begins. Even if, Biffle made up those points, the Richard Childress Racing driver would still have a cushion on Clint Bowyer, who is currently 42 points behind. His only troubling scenario is if ...

Voice of Vito: Scouting Championship Scenarios in Pre-Chase Preview

Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway will mark the final event of the 26-week regular season and set the stage for the latest iteration of NASCAR’s Chase playoff system. It’s been 10 years and four championship scenarios now, of heading into RIR the first weekend of September to see who’s in and who’s out. Despite all the changes and new angles being advertised of the 16 “nations” that will be competing, a few constants still remain: ... Read More »

Fantasy Insider: Chasing NASCAR’s New Chase Game

Fantasy Insider: Chasing NASCAR’s New Chase Game

NASCAR introduced its new fantasy game that will begin next week called the Perfect Chase Grid Challenge. It will give fans a chance to predict which drivers will make it through each round of the Chase, with four being eliminated after the Dover race, four more being finished after Talladega and then four more after Phoenix, leaving NASCAR with its version of the Final Four in the final race at Homestead. It sounds interesting and all, and I’ll probably give ... Read More »
