The half-way mark of the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup arrives at Lowes Motor Speedway with points leader Jimmie Johnson entering his sponsor’s track coming off a big win at Fontana. All signs are pointing to a fourth straight championship for Johnson, but several teams are still in the hunt including those of Martin, Montoya, Stewart and Gordon.
But drivers most likely out of the Chase could still make an impact. Kasey Kahne has won three of the last seven races at Lowes and should be good once again. Will Kasey shake things up, or will one of the top five win again?
