NASCAR Chase Report: Previewing Race No. 3 in Dover

Pretenders, contenders and potential winners as NASCAR's Chase moves to the high banks of Dover

Despite making over 1,000 starts in the first 15 years in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, it had only a single 1-2 finish — and that in itself was rolling snake eyes on a craps table: mastering plate-racing luck in the 2008 Daytona 500.  Joey Logano

 

NASCAR, Indianapolis need marquee winner to bolster slumping Brickyard 400
