NASCAR's ‘Race to Chase’ to begin

Titles, nicknames and catch phrases abound in sports. So it’s not surprising that we now have "The Race to the Chase," the unofficial name for the next 10 stops on the NASCAR Nextel Cup schedule.

Sunday’s Lenox Industrial Tools 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway is the 17th race of the season. When the Cup drivers return to Loudon, N.H., for the Sylvania 300 on Sept. 16, it will be the start of the 10-race Chase for the championship in which only the top 12 drivers are eligible to win the title.

Kurt Busch won the first Chase in 2004.
