It's money making time for NASCAR. The field for the Chase for the Sprint Cup is almost set. The September 4th race at the Atlanta Motor Speedway means there are just two races left before the cutoff line to make the chase.
The racers will head to the Richmond International Raceway next weekend and then begin the Chase at the Chicagoland Speedway on September, 18th.
Kyle Busch seems primed to give Jimmie Johnson a run at the title this year. Johnson has won the last five Sprint Championships. Meanwhile Busch has spent the majority of those five seasons filling his resume with wins, but not with consistent performances.
This year Busch is doing both. He is currently tied with Johnson for the points lead. This is setting up to be a very exciting close to the 2011 season. Check this slider often as we will update it regularly from now until a champion is crowned.
