Partially due to a stop for fresh tires during the final caution period, Kenseth surged five positions in the final 10 laps to finish 10th in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland.

Kenseth earned his position in the Chase by scoring consistent finishes and it appears he is headed toward the second round with that same strategy. His fans would like to see a victory, but fantasy owners will be well-rewarded by his reliability.

Along with his teammate Kyle Larson, Jamie McMurray was the only other non-Chaser who finished among the top 10. He crossed under the checkers ninth in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland.

McMurray had a car capable of leading in the early stages of the race. He took the point first on lap 40 and led three times for 32 circuits. Both Ganassi drivers have looked capable of winning during the first 27 races and they should be considered strong dark horses for the remainder of the season.

Chase contenders Kyle Busch finished seventh and Kurt Busch finished eighth in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland. Even more remarkable, the brothers survived contact with one another late in the race before earning their top-10s.

They took different paths in the past several races to get into the Chase, but both have stepped up their effort to begin the playoffs. This was Kyle’s first top-10 since Indianapolis, but it was the fourth such finish in that same span of races for Kurt. Neither driver has shown noteworthy consistency, however, and they need to string more than two top-10s together before fantasy owners view them as favorites.

A week after scoring a disappointing run at Richmond, Denny Hamlin rebounded and scored his seventh top-10 in the past 10 races. He crossed under the checkers sixth in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland.

Hamlin’s day was not without drama; he believed he had an engine going sour throughout the race, but it held together. Last week’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond is the only time he actually struggled during a race in the past 10 events and he heads to a short, flat track that has been kind in the past next week at New Hampshire, so he should be able to maintain momentum.

Because of the high volume of mistakes by his crew, Kevin Harvick swapped with Tony Stewart before the MyAFibStory.com 400. It did not keep the No. 4 from being error-free as they left lugnuts loose during an early-race pit stop. Harvick was forced to pit twice under caution and dropped to the back of the lead lap.

Fortunately, the incident occurred early enough in the race that Harvick had plenty of time to overcome it and he finished fifth, but the fallibility of this team remains an open question and that will impact his fantasy handicap and likelihood that he will advance through all three rounds of the Chase.
Sep 14 - 7:16 PM

Joey Logano picked up a large piece of debris in the closing laps and used that aerodynamic advantage to surge into the top five. With no air to the engine, it blew up just shy of the finish line, but the No. 22 had enough momentum to finish fourth in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland.

To win a championship a driver has to be lucky and good. If Logano’s engine had expired one lap earlier, he would have finished 19th and have a steep hill to climb in the next two weeks at New Hampshire and Dover.
Sep 14 - 6:29 PM

Kyle Larson finished third in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland and became the top finishing driver who is not in NASCAR’s Chase for the Championship.

More importantly, this was possibly the closest Larson has come to winning his first Cup race. He was leading with less than 25 laps remaining, but lost the lead on a frantic restart. Larson was the top finishing rookie with his sixth top-five finish and 12th top-10 in 27 races this year.
Sep 14 - 6:01 PM

For the second consecutive week, Jeff Gordon finished second to Brad Keselowski. Last week, he was the runner-up at Richmond and this week he finished 1.76 seconds behind the Penske racer in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland.

Most experts predict that the championship battle is going to come down to Penske versus Hendrick and fantasy owners have seen nothing in the past two races to suggest that prediction is incorrect. Both Gordon and Keselowski are equally strong on next week’s short, flat track in New Hampshire.
Sep 14 - 6:01 PM

Brad Keselowski made a bold move on a late-race restart to take the lead from Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson. He then withstood a final restart to win the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland. That victory automatically locks him into the second round of the Chase for the Championship.

Keselowski had to overcome a 25th-place qualification after the starting grid was set by practice speeds. He can gamble a little in the next two races, but there is not much benefit to do so since bonus points are not awarded. With this win, he establishes the No. 2 as a favorite to win the championship because there are three more races during the playoffs on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.
