Can someone please explain the Chase points systems to me? How could Matt have 2 wins and only be leading by 8 pts?

Not an HMS fan, but I have to wonder ..... if the 88 had 4 new tires, why couldn't he catch the 48? It was follow the leader, but not close enough to even make it a race.

And why did they interview Hendrick? JGR has 2 wins in the Chase - maybe I missed the Coach's interview?

Any thoughts on Hendrick's comment that he expects the 48 to win more races - wishful thinking?

Hendrick will probably see to it in some way or another that JJ wins more races.

1 point for every position - 1st= 43 pts, 2nd= 42 pts, etc...
3 bonus points to winner
1 bonus point for leading a lap
1 bonus point for leading most laps
Max points 48 (43+3+1+1)
All chase drivers were reset to 2000 pts plus 3 bonus points for each win.
Matt - 2015 +48+48+38 = 2149
Jimmy - 2012 +40+41+48 = 2141
Kyle - 2012 +43-42+40 = 2137
Does this help?

Jr started 4th on the second row and JJ restarted the race. JJ got a jumped ahead while Jr was trying to get past 2nd & 3rd place by the time he got past them JJ was too far ahead for Jr to catch up. Almost did it but not quite.. Another 10 laps and JJ's 2 tires would have cost him the race.

Yes, both races they interviewed Coach.

Any owner is going to say they expect their driver (s) to win more races. They wouldn't be much of an owner if they said they don't expect to win anymore races.

Smoke starts rehab ahead of schedule WHOO HOO!!!

A caution comes out and all (must be ALL) the lead lap cars pit. Any car a lap or more down has the option not to pit. By doing this they are actually behind the pace car but ahead of the leaders after they pit. Instead of having them start the race in front of the leaders (like they used to before the wave around rule)they wave them around the pace car to get back a lap.

If a driver is going to do this they can not pit until the green flag comes out and normally tries to stay out until the next caution or until they have to come in for fuel.

Hope this helps a bit.

There is no way Dale Jr would give up a win for ANYONE!! The dude is so hungry for a win I'd bet he'd shove his own Dad out of the way for it. He's a good guy but not that good of a guy!

The #14 car is a piece of sh!t. Tony wasn't doing very well in it before his accident. Add to that, their best resources are going into the #39 car.
