We are now half way through the NASCAR race season – with 19 races down and only 7 to go before the Chase grid is set.
If the season ended right now, who would be in and who would be out? We have broke it down so you can see the drivers that would be in the Chase this season if the last race was New Hampshire and who needs some help if they don’t want to miss it.

The top ten drivers “make the chase”, with the other two drivers clinching “Wild Card” (WC) spots by who has most wins.
Kasey Kahne’s win at Loudon was huge, it put him in the first wild card spot ahead of Kyle Busch. Kasey has one other win this season that came at Charlotte.
Kyle Busch is currently in the 2nd (and last) Wild Card spot, Kyle only has one win this season which came at the spring race at Richmond International Raceway.
