Points Lead Nice, A Win Would Be Better

Points Lead Nice, A Win Would Be Better

Jeff Gordon owns the points lead. That gets him some pretty sweet perks. Among them: Recognition, a primo hauler spot in the garage … and a guaranteed spot in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup if he holds it after race No. 26.

Look for a few more Sprint Cup winners in regular season, but not many

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series just came out of its first “off” weekend of the 2014 race season and heads into Richmond (Va.) International Raceway for night racing this upcoming Saturday. The first eight races saw seven different winners in the first year of a new NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup system that places more emphasis on winning when it comes to getting into the Chase.
