Talladega could get another driver into the Chase

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — David Ragan's surprise victory last season at Talladega Superspeedway gave his fledgling Front Row Motorsports team a taste of the potential inside the organization.

Back at Talladega to defend his win, the stakes are far greater Sunday.

Should Ragan win again this year, the victory could be worth a spot in the 16-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field.

Under new Chase qualifying rules enacted this season, drivers can become eligible for NASCAR's 10-race championship format with a victory as long as they are ranked inside the top-30 in the standings.

Although there have been no surprise winners yet this season, Talladega is the lottery ticket that can change the fortune for one lucky driver.
