Jeff Gordon vs Tony Stewart
 
This is really becoming a fun rivalry.
Of course Jeff is still head and shoulders above the competition, but Tony has really been hot down the stretch and today at the glen they showed they have the best two cars in the sport.

don't know a thing about nascar. but saw Stewart on the skins sideline a couple of times. now he is my favorite racer. plus, it seems like he doesn't mind causing a wreck or two

Tony has got to be one of the favorites for the Chase for the Championship.

JGR is kicking butt! Tony & Denny are on a roll.

But TS is kicking it in high gear right now! I hope they stay with Chevy......which sounds like a pipe dream, very unlikely....?

That was a fun race to watch. I couldn't believe Gordon lost it there, but hey, Tony did the same thing early on. Denny was solid again. He's the real deal.

Great day for JGR!

It looks like Jeff and tony would be the favorites.

Tony is in 4th position right now (I believe) and Gordon is so far in 1st that no one will catch him before the chase.
So that means, if I remember how the chase figures work out, that Gordon will start at 40 points ahead of Tony.

In time grasshopper! You can only kick so much butt in pre-season, we are 1-0 and I'll take that!

When we get the kinks out, and get everyone healthy just in time for regular games....we'll be kickin ASS!

Now back to NASCAR.....

Under the new format, the standings leading up to the Chase don't matter nearly as much as number of wins.

What happens at the start of the Chase for the Nextel Cup (Sunday Sept. 16 LIVE from New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon, NH. Coverage begins at 1p on ABC!) is that each of the top 12 drivers at that point will have 5,000 points. Then, for each win you are awarded an additional 10 points. So, if the race started today, Gordon and Jimmie Johnson would have 5,040 points (4 victories x 10 points) each at the top of the leaderboard, right behind them would be Stewart at 5,030. I call it the Kahne Affect (or is Effect?). Kasey Kahne barely squeaked into the Chase last year because he was so inconsistent despite the fact that he had a league high 5 Cup wins last year. Under this format, his victories are rewarded and he would have placed first going into the Chase.
