CHASE FIELD: 12 Drivers are in the Chase

The Federated Auto Parts 400 began with Jeff Gordon on the pole at the 3/4 mile oval in Richmond, VA. Gordon claimed the 73rd pole of his career and led early on. Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch Matt Kenseth would also make their way to the front to lead.


At the halfway point it was Keselowski up front. On lap 225 Gordon was forced to pit road with problems with a loose right front tire, losing two laps in the process. Gordon would earn one lap back under green and benefited from a debris caution to get the other.

In the end Joey Logano would make the Chase by taking the wave around knocking Jeff Gordon out.

Carl Edwards won the race beating Ryan Newman who lost out on a tie breaker for the second wild card spot to Martin Truex Jr. The win is the second of the season for Edwards.
