With 10 Races Remaining, It’s Perform Or Else

It’s “go time.”

Every race, every point is important in a 26-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular season. But the final 10 events – the Race to the Chase – beginning with Saturday night’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway (7:30 EDT, TNT, Performance Racing Network Radio, SiriusXM Satellite Radio), are akin to the waning days of all professional sports campaigns.

You either perform or go home.

At stake are 10 locked-in Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup™ positions – the top 10 in the standings following Richmond International Raceway on Sept. 7 – and two Wild Card berths.

Four multiple race winners – previous NASCAR Sprint Cup champions Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick – have established themselves as championship co-favorites but the jostling among additional contenders continues.

For more details, please see the Thursday edition of the Newport Plain Talk.
