As we head to Darlington this weekend, we know no matter what happens there or next Saturday night at Richmond that we will have three drivers who will enter the 2015 Chase for the Sprint Cup based on points.

Hendrick struggles about more than 'experimenting' for the Chase?

I'm not sure that race fans have really taken notice, but since Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the race at Daytona in July, Jeff Gordon has led five laps in the seven races since.
