Oct 23 2014 10:39am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

NASCAR's Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 event at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday could claim more Chase contenders. A crash or part failure on the .526-mile paperclip-oval track with 12-degree banking can dim playoff hopes and make the next two races "do-or-doom" for the dwindling number of Chase candidates. Only eight drivers are now qualified to chase the Sprint Cup. Only four will roll into Homestead for a chance to be crowned champion. Only four r ...

In the aftermath of the fireworks produced at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Carl Edwards said a week ago he could envision NASCAR CEO Brian France with his legs up and a smile on his face, happy with the new Chase for the Sprint Cup format he implemented. If France was happy with the drama at Charlotte then he must have been absolutely ecstatic with what unfolded S ...

The field of 12 contenders has dwindled to eight, and NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup heads to Martinsville for the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 with no shortage of talking points. Every one of the eight contenders will start out with level points entering the first of three Eliminator Round races, but it's no secret who has the momentum.

Forget the first six races that have passed—the real test for the new Chase for the Sprint Cup format begins Sunday. With eight of the original 16 Chase qualifiers having been eliminated in the Contender and Challenger rounds, will fans still tune-in to watch the last four races of the season on TV or actually attend a race in person knowing their favorite driver is no longer in contention for the championship? On t ...

Four races still remain in the 2014 NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup, but this year's championship hopes are history for Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Who should be sweating that more? The answer, my friends, was blowing in the wind in the interviews both drivers gave following their dual ouster from the Chase in last Sunday's Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. Despite leading twice for a total of 31 laps, which ...

Despite a strong start to the Chase, a crash eliminated Kyle Busch from playoff contention. With five consecutive top 10 finishes to begin the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Kyle Busch was off to the best playoff start of his career, second in points and seemingly in excellent position to advance to Round 3. Busch, however, will not be moving on to the Eliminator Round. A crash Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway relegated him to a 40th-place finish and dropped him below the Chase cutlin ...

Brad Keselowski Puts Week as Villain Behind Him, Now Focused on Chase Title

Oct 19 2014 11:19pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

If there were ever a perfect example of zero to hero, it’s Brad Keselowski. One week ago at Charlotte, Keselowski became one of NASCAR’s most vilified drivers—a villain, if you prefer—after he tangled with Matt Kenseth, Denny Hamlin and Tony Stewart. I mean, when usually mild-mannered Matt Kenseth explodes and clotheslines you, that’s some pretty serious stuff. For some, Keselowski's actions on pit road after the race had ended made him surpass Kyle Busch as the most vilified drive ...
