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 NASCAR.com 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!

Each contender has an excellent car, crew, and attitude to carry them forward. Good luck to everyone!
