Who has locked into the Chase already

I read in an article who has been locked in already. We are talking about Harvick, Dale Jr, Keselowski, Johnson, Gordon, Edwards, and Logano.

Who has not locked in is Kenseth, Larson, Biffle, Newman, or Bowyer. There are only three slots left. There are also two drivers not on this list that have been there in years past and that is Kahne and Stewart.

There are five races left and with only three slots to be had, there is no way of trying to figure out where this is going to shake out as is yet. We can make guesses and maybe we could have fun trying that out.

Re: Who has locked into the Chase already

I just figured I would post the current standings so that we can better analyze this if we choose. I highlighted everyone who currently has a win. Sorry for the awful formatting - I tried to get it to work but it just doesn't like me today...

Re: Who has locked into the Chase already

Pretty good odds on penciling in Ambrose this week as one with a win.
Yeah....that guy deserves to be in the chase. :roll:

No need to clarify on how I feel about the format this year. :|

Have to add...pretty impressive for Ryan to be ahead of the 48 with his 3 wins. 8-)
Truthfully, this year, I wouldn't have thought early on that he would be doing that well.

Still don't like the format though. ;)

Re: Who has locked into the Chase already

Remember, those below 20th will not be considered for the Chase even if they have a win. So Kurt Busch, Almirola, and Hamlin will have to be mighty impressive the next five races to even be considered.

Re: Who has locked into the Chase already

i know there are times i think the same as you, or i think of last years rules and get them all mixed up, that bein said, maybe nascar should chill out on changing things around so quickly..

Re: Who has locked into the Chase already

last year it was if you were in the top 20 with a win you could qualify for the wild card spot.

This year is the top 30 with a win & you are in. Which is stupid since there is only like 28 or 29 team running all the time, that arent start & park & such.
Lucky for Kurt Busch I guess. he has hovered around 24th to 28th for most of the season.

Almost makes me wish he would win the championship from the mid 20's just to show Nascar what a joke this system is.

Re: Who has locked into the Chase already

if they wanna keep the chase, the criteria should be you win to get in, thats it, no more who is highest in points gets the last 3 spots.... go all in or dont do it at all.
