NASCAR: Will your favorite driver make the Chase?


Of all the scenarios to make the final cut for the Chase for the Championship, Paul Menard’s is the easiest to understand. He has to lead the most laps and win Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at the Richmond International Raceway. He also needs Martin Truex Jr. to finish last or Ryan Newman to finish 39th or worse.

Others have less daunting ways to qualify for the playoffs.
