Greg Biffle and Ryan Newman were able to secure the final two Chase for the Sprint Cup spots last Saturday at Richmond International Raceway.
But if they’re unable to either win or run consistently toward the front over the first three Chase races – a.k.a. The Challenger Round – they both could be among the first four drivers to be eliminated.
With no wins between them, Biffle and Newman (along with fellow winless driver Matt Kenseth) will have to start the Chase 12 points down at the base reset total of 2,000 points.
