Jimmie haters, rejoice: The No. 48 will not be winning a sixth consecutive championship.

After wrecking at Charlotte Motor Speedway with 17 laps to go, Jimmie Johnson fell to eighth in the standings and 35 points behind leader Carl Edwards. With just five races to go, it may be too much even for "Superman" to overcome after dominating the Chase since 2006.

Matt Kenseth, on the other hand, moved squarely into the title fight with an impressive win on Saturday night. Mr. Consistency is just seven points behind his standings in the title race.

Who else is still in the championship hunt at the Chase's halfway point?

With just four drivers within 20 points of the lead and five races to go, this Chase has become a four-man battle.
