With just three races left until the Chase field is set, competition will surely be heating up as we head into this weekend’s Sprint Cup race in Bristol. Kevin Harvick clinched his spot in the Chase with his win in Michigan last weekend and Tony Stewart has moved up to 4th in the points standings, while Mark Martin dropped one place to 13th – just outside of the cut. Here’s a link to the complete list of the latest standings:
At this point in the season, I always pay closer attention to the standings to see where my favorite drivers rank and to see what their chances are of making the Chase. To me, the end of the race season is always more exciting when my favorite drivers are in the Chase. In our office, we have fans of a variety of drivers – Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Kyle Busch just to name a few. The Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch fans are happy with their drivers’ positions in the standings right now, but the Dale Jr. fans are keeping their fingers crossed for good luck in these next three races, hoping that he will make the Chase.
With all this talk about the Chase, we were wondering – who is your favorite driver (or drivers)? How do you feel about the last races of the season if your favorite driver isn’t in the Chase?
