NASCAR’s Chase Continues at the Monster Mile

NASCAR’s Chase Continues at the Monster Mile

BananaStock(DOVER, Del.) -- NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup championship continues this Sunday afternoon with the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway. It’s the third race in the 10-race Chase.

Joey Logano won last week’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He will join his Team Penske teammate, Brad Keselowski, who won the opener at Chicagoland Speedway, with automatic bids into the second round.

Aric Almirola is currently 16th in the 16-driver Chase field. “Our goal is to transfer to that next round, but we can’t really worry about what everybody else is doing,” Almirola said during a teleconference. “All we can do is worry about ourselves.”

After the race, the field will be whittled down to 12 drivers.

Logano Wins at Loudon

Logano Wins at Loudon

BannanStock(LOUDON, N.H.) -- Joey Logano etched his spot in the next round of NASCAR's "Chase for the Cup" by winning the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

It was the fourth win of the season for Logano, and happened at the track he considers to be home.

"To me this is almost like Daytona," said the Connecticut native. "I watched my first Cup race here when I was five, and started my first one, and won my first one...to top it off with a win was really neat."

Logano was the second member of Team Penske to win a Chase race, following Brad Keselowski's victory last week. Keselowski finished seventh and led 78 laps, but hit the wall in the second half of the race. 

The race was marred by a season-high 15 cautions, the last of which came in overtime and saw Logano pull away for the win. Kyle Larson took second followed by Kevin Harvick, who led 27 laps.

Next week's race at Dover International Speedway marks the first "elimination" race in NASCAR's new playoff format where four drivers will be bounced from contention every three weeks. Currently, Denny Hamlin, Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, and Aric Amirola are in the bottom four spots.

Brad Keselowski Wins Pole at New Hampshire

Brad Keselowski Wins Pole at New Hampshire

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images For NASCAR(LOUDON, N.H.) -- Brad Keselowski took home the pole on Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and will start up front after winning last weekend at Chicagoland.

Keselowski set a track-record lap of 140.598 mph and is hoping to win the second race in the first round, even though he's already advanced.

"This kind of track is kind of right in my wheelhouse, right in our team's wheelhouse," Keselowski said. "We had this race circled before the Chase started and we felt decent about Chicago, but really felt like this was a race of emphasis for us to get a win and get out of the first bracket."

Keselowski swept the Cup and Nationwide races at Loudon in July.

"It's positive momentum," he said, "but when it resets it resets and nothing that you've done in the past really matters as long as you're eligible for the bracket. I'm a long, long ways from using the word favorite or feeling overly confident."

Jamie McMurray, who is a non-chase driver finished second and was followed by Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, and Jimmie Johnson.

Grand Jury to Hear Tony Stewart’s Case

Grand Jury to Hear Tony Stewart’s Case

BananaStock(CANANDAIGUA, N.Y.) -- NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Tony Stewart will have his sprint car case in New York presented in front of a grand jury, Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo said on Tuesday.

“Upon my review of all of the information contained in the entire investigation, I have made the determination that it would be appropriate to submit the evidence to a grand jury, for their determination as to what action should be taken in this matter,” Tantillo said.

Stewart’s car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. during a dirt track race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on August 9. After Stewart spun him out, Ward climbed out of his car to confront Stewart while the race was still taking place.

“I respect the time and effort spent by both the Ontario County District Attorney and the Sheriff’s Office in investigating this tragic accident,” Stewart said in a statement. “I look forward to this process being completed, and I will continue to provide my full cooperation.”

Keselowski Wins Chase Opener at Chicagoland

Keselowski Wins Chase Opener at Chicagoland

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images For NASCAR(JOLIET, Ill.) -- Brad Keselowski passed between both Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson to seize the lead with 19 laps to go, winning the MyAFIBStory.com 400 at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday. The win kept Keselowski atop the Chase for the Sprint Cup standings after the first race and guarantees his advancement into the next round.

"Man, the next two weeks are going to be a lot of fun, knowing we don't have to worry too much and we are going to move up," said Keselowski. 

A late crash forced one more restart, but the 2012 Sprint Cup Champion easily pulled away from the field with six laps remaining. It was Keselowski's second-straight trip to victory lane, and his series-leading fifth win of the season.

Jeff Gordon finished second while Kyle Larson took third. The new playoff format in NASCAR will eliminate four drivers every three races during the 10-race Chase. Drivers are able to earn a pass into the next round with a win in the individual event.

Kahne Wins in Atlanta; Stewart Crashes in Return

Kahne Wins in Atlanta; Stewart Crashes in Return

Chris Graythen/NASCAR via Getty Images(HAMPTON, Ga.) -- With only two races remaining before the NASCAR "Chase for the Cup," Kasey Kahne cemented his spot in the new postseason format, winning the Oral B USA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday.

Kahne had to hold off Matt Kenseth on a green-white checkered, but got a good jump on the restart to take the checkered flag. Kenseth did end up qualifying for the Chase on points by finishing second. Denny Hamlin finished third while Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards rounded out the top-5.

The 34-year-old first took the lead off a restart with 23 laps remaining and again surged to the front of the pack on the final restart. Harvick, who won the Nationwide race on Saturday, led 195 laps but made contact with Joey Logano on the final restart, denying him a weekend sweep.

Making his return to NASCAR three weeks after a crash that killed Kevin Ward, Jr. at a dirt track race in upstate New York, Tony Stewart blew out his right front tire on lap 172, ending his night in 41st place.

Logano Earns First Ever Win at Bristol

Logano Earns First Ever Win at Bristol

Chris Graythen/Getty Images for NASCAR(BRISTOL, Tenn.) -- Joey Logano had never won more than one race in a single Sprint Cup season. On Saturday he took his third checkered flag of 2014, holding off Brad Keselowski to win the IRWIN Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"I feel like the Bristol night race is maybe the third- or fourth-biggest race of the year,'' Logano said after his first-ever win at the track. "Just the atmosphere before the race, if it doesn't pump you up, nothing does. It's just the baddest mamma jamma race track ever built.''

The 24-year-old passed Matt Kenseth with 44 laps remaining but had to hold off a late charge by Keselowski to earn the victory. Logano became the fifth driver this season to win three different races, joining Keselowski, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

Kenseth ended up finishing third and is still looking for the win that will clinch a spot in the "Race to the Chase." There are just two races remaining before NASCAR's playoff begins and Kenseth sits fifth in points standings, tops among non-winners looking to qualify.

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Fresh off his third win of the NASCAR Sprint Cup season, Jeff Gordon hopes to continue one of the best seasons of his career on Saturday night.

Gordon has five wins, five poles, and 16 top five finishes at Bristol Motor Speedway and has an average starting position of 7.4.

"(No. 24 crew chief) Alan (Gustafson) and the crew are giving me great cars each week. It’s a lot of fun going to the track right now, and this week is no exception. I love racing at Bristol and we’re really looking forward to this Saturday night’s race," Gordon continued.

Jeff Gordon Wins the Pure Michigan 400

Jeff Gordon Wins the Pure Michigan 400

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(BROOKLYN, Mich.) -- Not only did Jeff Gordon win his third NASCAR Sprint Cup race of the year, he won at Michigan International Speedway for the first time since 2001, as he won the Pure Michigan 400 on Sunday.

It was Gordon's 91st NASCAR Sprint Cup win. This is his first three-win season since 2011.

Gordon remains at the top of the points standings over Dale Earnhardt Jr. Gordon holds a three-point lead in the standings.

"It wasn't easy, it's never easy to win at any of these tracks, especially when aerodynamics and track position mean so much," Gordon said after the race. "I thought we learned a lot the last time we were here on track position so Allen called a perfect race."

Kevin Harvick finished second in the race, followed by Joey Logano, Paul Menard, and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

With three races left in the regular season, barring any attempt to not qualify the races, the 12 drivers have been determined in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Jeff Gordon Wins Pole for Michigan

Jeff Gordon Wins Pole for Michigan

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(BROOKLYN, Mich.) -- Jeff Gordon set the track record and won the pole for Michigan International Speedway on Sunday.

Gordon has two wins this season and had a speed of 206.558 mph for the record.

"I don't know where to start," Gordon said. "You can point at the repaving of the racetrack. This track is smooth -- has a tremendous amount of surface area where the tire can get a lot of grip to it. The next thing is the cars."

Joey Logano finished with the second fastest time and was followed by Carl Edwards.

"It has nothing to do with the racetrack picking up speed," said Logano, who qualified second behind Gordon. "It has (to do with) what we've been doing to the race cars to go faster. ... I believe it's cooler out, too. So I think between those two things, that's why we went faster again, but the racetrack itself isn't picking up speed. The racetrack, if anything, is maintaining to getting slower. But it's widening out, so it's becoming a better race."

Edwards, who has two wins this season, said that doesn't mind the new paved track.

"It's fast -- that's the simplest way to describe it," Edwards said. "I wish you guys could ride in that car with me there. That is screaming."

NASCAR Institutes New Rule to Keep Drivers in Car

NASCAR Institutes New Rule to Keep Drivers in Car

Todd Warshaw/Getty Images(DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.) -- NASCAR vice president Robin Pemberton instituted a new rule on Friday that will not allow drivers to get out of their car until told to do so by a NASCAR official.

The announcement comes in the wake of Tony Stewart's fatal sprint car crash that killed Kevin Ward Jr. in upstate New York on Saturday.

"Throughout the history of our sport, NASCAR has reviewed and analyzed situations and occurrences that take place not just in NASCAR racing but also throughout all motorsports and other sports," Pemberton said. "When we believe we can do something to make our sport safer and better for the competitors and others involved in the competition environment, we react quickly. Safety always has been priority No. 1 at NASCAR."

The rule, listed as Section 9-16, will be effective immediately. Here's the rule below:

During an Event, if a racecar is involved in an on track incident and/or is stopped on or near the racing surface and unable to continue to make forward progress, unless extenuating emergency conditions exist with the racecar (i.e. fire, smoke in cockpit, etc.) the driver should take the following steps:

Shut off electrical power and, if driver is uninjured, lower window net Do not loosen , disconnect or remove any driver personal safety equipment until directed to do so by safety personnel or a NASCAR/Track Official After being directed to exit the racecar, the driver should proceed to either the ambulance, other vehicle, or as otherwise directed by safety personnel or a NASCAR/Track Official At no time should a driver or crew member(s) approach any portion of the racing surface or apron At no time should a driver or crew member(s) approach another moving vehicle

All vehicles not involved in the incident or that are able to continue afterwards should slow down to a cautious speed as outlined in Section 10-4 (Yellow Flag), use extreme care as they approach an incident scene, and follow any directions given by safety personnel or NASCAR/Track Officials. Cars in line behind the safety car should not weave or otherwise stray from the line in the vicinity of the incident.

The Sprint Cup series will be in Michigan International Speedway on Sunday.
