NASCAR’s “regular” season ends Saturday night under the lights with the last race before the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Tony Stewart enters Richmond International Raceway fresh off a night race win at Atlanta and a typical late-season surge. While that may set him up for a great run in the Chase, will it help him win at RIR where Kyle Busch has won seven of the last 11 races?
For Ryan Newman and Jamie McMurray, this weekend is their last chance to get into the Chase. Clint Bowyer, meanwhile, will be hoping to hang on to the 12th and final slot. And Mark Martin — well — there’s always next year.
