Listen LIVE To Geico 400 From Chicagoland Speedway
The Chase for the Sprint Cup begins Sunday in Chicago with the Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.
Joey Logano – who is sixth in the Sprint Cup standings – has the pole with teammate Brad Keselowski staring next to him the front row.
This year’s Chase will be like no other, because instead of twelve driver’s racing for the cup, there are 13.
The Clint Bowyer intentional spin-out to help a teammate last week was punished by NASCAR officials, who, this week, removed Martin Truex Jr. from the Chase, inserted Ryan Newman and took the unprecedented step of adding a driver – Jeff Gordon – saying he faced an unfair disadvantage based on the actions of other racing teams.
NASCAR has also implemented a new rule that basically you must race at 100% and try to finish in the best position you can.
