I'm thinking some of the chase drivers have reason to worry about an outsider ruining their chase chances but I don't think it will come in the form of tough competition. I think it will come in the form of payback. Several of the chase contenders have unfinished retribution coming for passed offenses. Cousin Carl shouldn't be surprised if Brad finds a way to sideline his chase aspirations. Jeff has a small line of offended still owing him payback for his road course crash fest. Kyle and Denny have too many to name owing them repayment. Kurt certainly won't miss raining on Jimmie's parade if he gets the chance. It could get really interesting.

OT: Happy 35th to the Four Time Champ :)

I'm guessing NASCAR has as much as told Brad if he wrecks Carl on purpose his days are numbered.

I would love to see this, because it would make the race interesting! But I doubt it will. The non-chase drivers have been told to stay out of the way of the twelve, because this is the playoffs, and there are only twelve cars racing. The chase drivers won't intentionally take another chaser out because they could have points taken away. It will be boring and Nascar will lose more viewers. JMO

Jimmie JOhnson is the main one to take out. he is so cocky. today he said he is not worried, he knows he will win the chase. If I were the other drivers, I would take that as a dare & watch out JJ..

This could be the year for a outsider.
How about Burton or Biffle or the good Busch.

I don't see anyone taking any of them out intentionally, but there are several out there who just can't help getting in accidents week end and week out (Sam Hornish being one). I am sure someone will end up in a mess caused by someone not in the chase.
