The seedings are now set for the Chase for the Sprint Cup.  Kevin Harvick won Saturday night’s 400 lap race at Richmond giving him four victories this season and that was good enough to put him into a tie with Kyle Busch atop the standings heading into the final 10 races of the season.  It was Harvick’s first victory since May 29th at Charlotte and ended a nearly summer-long stretch of sub-par performances.

Tony Stewart and Denny Hamlin had to drive their way into the Chase to earn spots.

Dale Earnhardt, Junior finished 16th, but it was good enough to get him back into the championship run for the first time since 2008.

Saturday’s race also featured a return engagement in the long-time feud between Kurt Busch and Jimmie Johnson with intentional bumping on the track and angry words afterward.  First Busch bumped Johnson into the wall and then Johnson retaliated sending Busch spinning.  Last month at Pocono the two sideswiped each other then confronted each other on pit row after the race.

So heading into next week’s race at Chicagoland Speedway, following Kyle Busch and Harvick in the standings it’s Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt, Junior in the Top 10.  Taking the final two spots as wildcards were Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin.
