The Chase Is Near.  Which Driver Is Poised To Take Control?

With only three races remaining, which driver seems to be in control?

Carl Edwards looks like he has the right stuff now, but you can't rule out Kyle Busch, and Jimmy Johnson. No one has won more chase races then the 48 team.

Kyle Busch has been hot all season long with eight wins all at different style tracks.  He may finally breakthrough for his first title this season.

What about the bubble guys like  Dave Ragan, Clint Bowyer, Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin?

Dave Ragan is the only driver of this group who has never made the chase.  He has his Ford in contention almost  every week. Its a long-shot, but i'm picking him to make the cut this year. 

Harvick is sure to get in and so is Hamlin, but the 07 car has been struggling of late. Last week's seventh place finish is a glimmer, but last year's appearance may have been an aberration.

Whats up with Jeff Gordon? I don't think he has lost any driving skill since his championship days, the short end of this equation is the team.  After 26 races we have not seen a dominant car from this team.

We all know when Jeff has a good car he is hard to beat. The 24 car is ninth overall in the standings, and is in danger of missing the chase. 

You have to wonder where Gordon would be if he had Chad Knaus as a crew chief.

Buckle up, fans.  It is Saturday night racing at Bristol with chase implications on the line.  Can you say feeding frenzy?  The sharks will be out for blood on the little oval.
