Out of the drivers that have a shot who's NOT going to make it in the chase?

The most obvious answer is Matt Kenseth since he's only 20 points ahead of 13th anyway. But Biffle may be in trouble also. Roush cars have struggled somewhat on short tracks this year. So I'm gonna say either Biffle or Kenseth and Busch slides into the Chase.

As strong and consistent as Vickers has been lately, I wouldn't count him out either.

i'll be pulling for vickers to take kenseth's place

Dear Lord. While I realize you have a GREAT sense of humor, I was hoping that this year you could find someone else to use as the punch line. Amen.

I don't think Kyle will make it. He is a little less than 40 points out of 12th. That's not a lot, but I think he will overdrive the car and be too aggressive trying to get the win. Then he crashes and the crowd goes wild!!!!!!

Kyle will either dominate the race or he will crash and finish at the end of the pack. 
RIP Dan Wheldon

Kyle showed character.  Congrats to Vickers.  In 11 races the 09 sprint cup champ will be in the #9 Blue Oval

This may not be a popular opinion but this is what makes the Chase suck. Mark Martin was over 500 points behind the points leader and now just because they reset the points and give bounus points he's the leader now. He was outside the top 10 in almost half of the first 26 races. Is that really championship material? Not picking on Mark personally because he didn't set the rules but the system sucks. If you weren't good enough to be in the lead or at least within say 200 points of the leader you don't deserve a championship.

I agree. The boy seems to be maturing quickly. That's why the #88 may be coming off my truck and a #18 taking it's place. At least with Kyle you know he's trying. Jr just doesn't have it anymore. Congrats to Vickers though. He did what he needed to do.

I agree K9!!! Kyle was very humble I thought. He might actually be becoming a cookie cutter Nascar driver! That's what everybody loved about him....he was NOT a JJ, JG, TS, KB type of driver. Too bad, another bad-a$$ dowwn the drain!

And Beiter...I guess it's finally time to quit baggin' on Junior and start on Kyle...I mean if your serious about changin' stickers on your truck! Y'all are just a bandwagon fan, huh?

I know how everyone feels about Kyle and personally I am not that fond of him but my daughter is but honestly........it sure is difficult to win races throughout the year and not make the chase.  I think it really sucks.....

 chase + no #18 = borefest.
 
 juan paco MIGHT get aggressive OCCASIONALLY, but the rest of them will be lovin' on each other worse than hemi-power and the twin big'n's! i'll still watch to see kyle busch & kevin harvick win races and witness the budweiser9 win a championship!

Love or hate him, kyle does bring excitement to racing. I dont cre for his immature attitude he shows most of the the time but he can flat out drive a car/truck. If only the other drivers would show the same attitude towards winning.
Always seeking to go faster !!!!

That's not Kyle Busch talking...that's Joe Gibbs and the Mars Corp. sponsorship. The real Kyle is still in there...somewhere. Wink
 
We'll see him appear again soon, I'm sure. As for changing your drivers like that....I'm guessing that's just the frustration talking. Hang in there my friend!

That definitely is not Kyle talking; he has a new PR coach who works with him throughout the week and "handles" him on the weekend. How would ya like THAT job?
