NASCAR Chase is a Go for 2015

If you’re not an avid fan of NASCAR (I know, roll your eyes, but it’s not everyone’s cup of performance fuel), it’s time to join in. The Chase is on. Sixteen drivers are official contenders for the 2015 cup.

A staff reporter at provided an understandable description about how the point system works for the Chase. Every driver in contention starts with 2000 points. Three bonus points are awarded every win during the regular season.  Ties are broken by position in finishes (second, third, fourth, etc.) until a winner of the tiebreaker is determined.

Racing excitement will continue to build through the Sprint Cup Contender and Eliminator Rounds. Print out free race car coloring sheets for the kids and use the finished artwork as décor. Gather around the track or TV and root your favorite driver to victory!

Who is your favorite NASCAR driver?


  1. I don't know the first thing about NASCAR, but I am going to my first race in a few weeks, so I am excited to learn about it.

  2. I also don't know a whole lot about NASCAR but I do occasionally watch with my husband. I know for some, there is nothing better. Good luck to all!

  3. I love Nacar racing. #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr is my favorite. I hope to go to the Daytona 500 next year. Catherine S

  4. I have watched Nascar now and then. I guess I really don't have a favorite.

  5. I have always wanted to take my boys to a nascar race. On my bucket list!

  6. Nascar is huge in my husband's family. They all really like watching the races.

  7. I couldn't possibly pick a favorite as I really don't know any of them enough to choose. I wish them all luck though!

  8. I have always wanted to go to a big NASCAR race. Someday I hope to cross it off my bucket list.

  9. My bff since 8th grade (that was a looong time ago) loves Nascar. She talks about the drivers like they're friends. :)

  10. I don;t watch it on tv but I would love to take the kids to a live race. That would be awesome!

  11. I would love to attend such an event, I just can't get into it on TV
