Sprint Cup 2010: Race 26 -- Judgment Night

Essentially, all Greg Biffle and Clint Bowyer have to do is finish the race tonight in Richmond staying in the top 25, and they're in. Biffle, in 11th starts 24th while Bowyer has a fine second row, 4th position, while first man on the other side of the bubble, Ryan Newman needs to make up 127 points starting in 23rd position. Jamie McMurray is buried down in 34th place starting position. Add it up and without something catastrophic affecting Biffle and/or Bowyer and very respectable finishes by the contenders, the 2010 Chase has been decided. While Biffle's starting position is not good, his final practice was fourth best.

Here's the top 10 starters:

1- Carl Edwards, Ford
2- Juan Montoya, Chevy
3- A.J. Allmendinger, Ford
4- Clint Bowyer, Chevy
5- David Reutimann, Toyota
6- Joey Logano, Toyota
7- Paul Menard, Ford
8- Brad Keselowski, Dodge
9- Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Chevy
10- Kasey Kahne, Ford

Richmond is one of the circuit's most exciting tracks combining short track action with a long back stretch measuring 3/4 of a mile total length. The race will be on over-the-air television on ABC. All top 12 drivers will be challenged to attempt to pull off a victory to gain ten points toward their Chase standings. It will be fun!
