The Chase picture has cleared somewhat after the smoke from Brad Keselowski's third burnout of 2011 has drifted away.

In the aftermath of a Bristol night race that saw plenty of beating and banging, the top nine drivers are basically locked into the Chase for the Championship.

(Junior Nation, feel free to breathe a collective sigh of relief.)

Meanwhile, Keselowski will get in either as a wild card, or possibly as a member of the top 10.

That leaves just two slots open for the rest of the field. To make it in, some drivers will need to maintain their current positions while several others are in must-win mode.

As many as ten drivers are technically in contention for a spot in the Chase, but in reality only about seven have much hope. Here they are, ranked from least likely to most likely to make the Chase.
