The 2011 Chase has been full of surprises. We've seen the points lead change hands multiple times, the five-time defending champion drop out of the title picture, and multiple drivers score their first victories of the season.
Predicting the rest of the Chase is a tough assignment, especially given the tight points picture and unknowns such as what the quality of racing on the newly repaved surface of Phoenix International Raceway will be.
But after gazing into my crystal ball and looking into the upcoming Chase races, here are my picks for each remaining race, as well as how the championship battle will shape up.
One thing I can guarantee: it will be an exciting finish to the season!
