  1. Can Kasey Kahne survive in the Contender Round?Read the original story

    Tuesday | Motorsport.com

    While all four Hendrick Motorsports' Chevys transferred to the Contender Round of the Chase, will Kasey Kahne's staying power hold up? Kahne earned a spot in Chase for the Sprint Cup when he capitalized on Kevin Harvick's misfortunes at Atlanta and won the race. Although he started 12th at Dover on Sunday and quickly moved up to fifth, following the pit stop under the third caution on Lap 126, Kahne developed a loose wheel and dropped out of the top 25. He was forced to return to the pits for service on Lap 161.

    Tuesday | Auto Racing Daily

    Tuesday | Daytona Beach News-Journal Online

    Well, any surprises? No, but maybe that in itself is sorta surprising. With 16 "playoff teams" at the start of the Chase's first three-race segment , many of us assumed that at least one of first four to be eliminated would be someone who didn't belong on that first bus out of town.

    Monday Sep 29 | GantDaily.com

    "Big Daddy" Jeff Gordon got his fourth win of the year on Sunday, but now he and 11 others are all even as the Chase enters the Contender Round.
