Winston Cup Series Chase Field To Be Set After Sundays Race

The DNQ Winston Cup Series will have its 8 driver chase field set after Sundays race at AAR Speedway. So far this season there have been 4 drivers that have already made their way into the next round after winning races this season. Eddie D'Hondt , Tim Nye , Matt Holzbaur , and L.J. McCleary are all locked into the Cup Series chase. While David Markham and 2015 Rookie of the year Brad Buskirk seem to have the next 2 spots locked there are still 2 more open spots for the series regulars to get into. One of those may very well go to Dylan Ward who is very strong at the AAR Speedway and can make his way in on points with a strong run. After the top 8 are locked in they will run 3 races to determine who will go for the Cup Series Championship in November.
