The fifth race of the 2013 Sprint Cup Series Chase for the Championship takes place under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The event will mark the second time this season that the series has run a race in Charlotte.
Through the first four races of the postseason, Matt Kenseth holds a three-point lead over five-time series champion Jimmie Johnson. Following a win in Kansas last weekend, Kevin Harvick sits third in the standings, 25 points out of the lead.
With more than half of the championship contenders more than 40 points out of the lead, Charlotte is clearly a make-or-break race for all 13 Chase drivers.
For some, it is a must-win situation just to stay in contention while, for others, a win could separate them from the rest of the field.
So which drivers are the ones to keep the closest eye on, and which stories are making the most headlines? Join us as we get you set for the fifth race of the playoffs, under the lights of Charlotte Motor Speedway.
