Three weeks in, and the Chase for NASCAR's Sprint Cup is tighter than a ward boss on election night.
Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick are tied for first. Tony Stewart, winner of the first two Chase races, and Kurt Busch, the winner at Dover Sunday, are nine points back. A mere 68 points separate the first Chase drivers from the last (Denny Hamlin).
You know how they always say you don't need to watch an NBA game until the fourth quarter?
Well, I'm starting to think you won't need to tune into the Chase until the last couple races. 'Cause that's where it'll get decided.
