Atlanta Motor Speedway plays host to NASCAR this weekend.

On Sunday, NASCAR heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway—a track on the southern outskirts of metropolitan Atlanta, far enough away that many nearby residents don't really consider themselves denizens of Atlanta—for its 25th race of the 2013 season.

Most pressing in the story department is how the race will work out for the handful of drivers seeking a lock into the Chase for the Sprint Cup. The 12-driver field will compete for the 2013 title over the final 10 races of the season, starting at Chicagoland Speedway in three weeks. The order will be set in stone following the race at Richmond International Speedway in two weeks.

But the Chase won't be the only story this week. One driver will be racing injured, while another will be racing as a lame duck. And, of course, all 43 starters will be hoping to spend the wee hours of Labor Day morning celebrating the fruit of their own on-track work in Victory Lane. Let's find out who may get there.
