10 Burning Questions with 7 Races Left in 2013 Chase for the Sprint Cup

This still has the potential to be one of the wildest Chase finishes ever.

Three down, seven to go.

The 2013 NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup already has offered us unexpected twists and uncharted turns, despite the fact that these race cars always are turning left on race days (remember, there are no road courses in the Chase, but we'll get to that later, too).

Current Chase points leader Matt Kenseth took early control by winning the first two post-season races at Chicagoland and New Hampshire, respectively, but Jimmie Johnson followed that by winning at Dover to remind everyone why he's a five-time Cup champ. Johnson is second in the standings after the first three events in the 10-race Chase, a scant eight points behind Kenseth.

Meanwhile, Kyle Busch lurks in third, just 12 points behind Kenseth and only four behind Johnson after finishing second in each of the first two Chase races and a solid fifth at Dover.

Those are lots of numbers to digest, but all they've really led to are 10 burning questions with seven races remaining in this Chase.
