BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Matt Kenseth says he's not feeling locked into NASCAR's championship Chase until he's really locked in.
Greg Biffle would make it if the season ended now, but thinks he has to win one of the next three races to be sure.
The group of drivers battling for the last four spots ranges from Kenseth, the 2003 champion, to rookies Austin Dillon and Kyle Larson, who are two points apart and no worse than 24 points behind Biffle for the 16th and final spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Two of the venues remaining in the regular season could make things even more dicey. After Saturday night's race at Bristol Motor Speedway, the series moves to Atlanta and finished the regular season at Richmond in two weeks.
