THE CHASE is providing drama on wheels at speeds up to 200 mph. Heading into Sunday's race at Phoenix, only Jeff Gordon is assured of a spot in the final four on Nov. 22 at Homestead, Fla. Gordon won the first race in the Eliminator Round. Jimmie Johnson won Sunday's second Eliminator race at Texas, but he is not eligible for the final four. Provided they have good finishes at Phoenix, Kyle Busch (second in points) and Kevin Harvick (third) are likely final four racers with Gordon.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - That'll teach everyone to count out Jimmie Johnson. The five-time defending Cup champion dominated yesterday at Kansas Speedway, weathering a series of late cautions and holding off Kasey Kahne to win for the first time since April. Johnson stumbled through the first two races in NASCAR's version of a postseason, and was 10th in the standings heading to Dover. A second-place finish last weekend gave Johnson confidence, and his first win since Talladega moved him into third in the Chase behind Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick.

CONCORD, N.C. - NASCAR's championship race took another turn Saturday night when Matt Kenseth staked a claim on the title with a win at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

It pushed him two spots in the standings to third, and he trails leader Carl Edwards by just seven points. As Kenseth was moving toward the victory, the race took a nasty turn for five-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson.

WE SUSPECT several Sprint Cup series drivers are not sleeping well this week, since Saturday night's race at Richmond will determine the 16-driver field for the Chase, which begins Sept. 20 at Chicagoland Speedway. Drivers facing days and nights of stress include Aric Almirola, Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle, Kyle Larson and Austin Dillon. They are 16th through 20th and all are winless this season. If any of them win at Richmond, they'll be in the Chase. If a driver who already has a victory this year wins again Saturday, Clint Bowyer - in 15th place and also winless - needs only to finish 28th or better to hold a Chase spot.

LET'S GIVE NASCAR an "attaboy!" for attempting to improve its racing. Sprint Cup teams were at Kentucky Speedway yesterday for the first of two practice days to test a new aero package designed to give the drivers more control of their cars and hopefully create more passing on the racetrack. Unfortunately, rain postponed practice until today. Drivers and crew chiefs want to see how the cars react with a full field on the track, where they'll race Saturday night. Before arriving in Kentucky, Carl Edwards, driver of the No. 19 Toyota, said: "I applaud NASCAR for making this change, for trying something.

IS THE POSTRACE craziness at Charlotte over yet? "Bad" Brad Keselowski slams his car into Matt Kenseth's after Saturday night's race . . . Keselowski tries to spin Denny Hamlin's car . . . Tony Stewart backs his car into Keselowski's . . . the mild-mannered Kenseth jumps Keselowski where the team haulers are parked. There were so many incidents, maybe I missed one. Afterward, Hamlin said Keselowski "is acting like a dumb ass instead of a champion. " The outbursts attracted attention from many media outlets that normally ignore NASCAR.

FIVE RACES into the new NASCAR Sprint Cup season and, to use a popular term, here's what is trending: For openers, there are five different race winners: Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch. That's good for the series. Last year, five different drivers also won the first five races: Jimmie Johnson, Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Kasey Kahne and Kyle Busch. In the 10-year history of the Chase, there have not been six different winners beginning a season.

WITH the turmoil of the Richmond race presumably in our rearview mirrors, it's time to focus on the 10th Chase that begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. This Chase features major turnover: Five drivers weren't in last year's Chase: Kyle and Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Joey Logano and Ryan Newman. They replace champion Brad Keselowski, Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. Keselowski's missing the Chase will make many question whether he's a 1-year wonder as a champion.

GREG BIFFLE picked the perfect time to win his first Sprint Cup race of the year. Biffle's first-place finish Sunday at Michigan was Ford's 1,000th victory in NASCAR's top three series.
