Then there were 12 drivers

Heading into the next 3 races, I am going to do a 3 week look at those next 3 weeks. There will only be 12 drivers going for one championship. I am going to take a look at the three races, what chase driver, and non chase driver could win that race and which ones could have an impact on the 1 championship. But first, which 4 drivers were eliminated?

1. Jamie McMurray who missed out by 0 points, it came down to him vs dale jr who ever had the higher finish at Dover and went on to the next round.

JimmieJohnsonNascar2. Jimmie Johnson this was a total shocker going into Dover it looked like he was safe, but early in the race he had part failure which costed him almost 40+ laps down and a 41st place finish at his best track.

3. Paul Menard who had been very good during the year at finishing strong didn’t work in the chase as he ran mid pack, and Paul never really had a chance all day at Dover that he might sneak in and take a chase spot from someone else.

ClintBowerNascar4. Clint Bowyer going into Dover he knew he had to win to advance in the chase, from the green flag to checker flag he never made it to the front and challenged for the win he was knocked out.


Now, that we have what four drivers are out let’s look at the always entertaining track at Charlotte and what the outcome may be.

First, it’s the final Saturday night race for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at their home track for this year at Charlotte Motor Speedway. What chase driver is the favorite going into this race? Hands down Kevin Harvick who won this race last year, and coming after his dominating victory at Dover don’t be surprised to see him win back to back races.2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Charlotte

The non-chase driver that could spoil it for the chase drivers is Jimmie Johnson who at one time won about everything they had to offer, it hasn’t been the best track in recent years, but with nothing to lose watch out he do anything to win.
