Happy Hour: Chasing the Chase and where does Roush Fenway rank? [Yahoo! Sports: Blogs: August 21, 2014, 5:05 pm]
Throughout the week you can send us your best questions, jokes, rants and just plain miscellaneous thoughts to happyhourmailbag@yahoo.com or @NickBromberg.We'll post them here, have a good time and everyone's happy. Everyone feeling better this week? Miss the truck race Thursday because of work? Spoiler alert, Brad Keselowski won his first race in the Truck Series ... ever. Hard to believe isn't it? When I first saw that stat I had to do a double-take to realize it wasn't true. As we're on a truck note, this is interesting. Last week at Michigan, Keselowski's team's truck's had front splitter problems. Apparently because a NASCAR official got confused. But if the official was confused, did the team say something and protest its case? Who you got this week? Will Matt Kenseth get a win? Will another non-winner win? The most dramatic scenario over the next three races may be a Kenseth win and two more repeat winners. That would leave the cluster around 10th place in the points standings to fight it out for the final Chase spots. And you know what? That sounds pretty familiar to the old style of Chase. Let's get to it. @NickBromberg I wonder how much wins actually matter early in chase. I think a team that just gets 3 top 15 would make it to next round? 1/2— Adam Porter (@heylookaturtle) August 20, 2014 @NickBromberg (2/2) even just 3 top tens might be enough to make it to the round of 8? I feel like points still matter a ton early.— Adam Porter (@heylookaturtle) August 20, 2014 If the narrative of "winning is everything" doesn't change in the Chase, it's going to be even more incorrect than it's been throughout the regular season. Because of the bye, wins will obviously be important, but at most, three drivers will be able to guarantee themselves passage to the next round via a win. That means that nine drivers would need to worry about points in the first round, five in the second and one in the third. Points are going to be even more important than winning simply

Tony Stewart will not race at Bristol as Jeff Burton substitutes for him again [Yahoo! Sports: Blogs: August 20, 2014, 9:11 pm]
Tony Stewart is not driving at Bristol. The team announced Wednesday afternoon that Jeff Burton would substitute for Stewart again. Burton drove the No. 14 at Michigan. Stewart has not driven in a Sprint Cup Series race since he struck and killed Kevin Ward at a dirt track in upstate New York on August 9. Just like with Burton's appearance in Stewart's car last week, the team said the decision only pertains to Bristol and that any decision on Atlanta, the next race on the Sprint Cup circuit, hasn't been made. The investigation into Ward's death is still ongoing by the Ontario County (N.Y.) Sheriff's Department. Last week, Sheriff Philip Povero said the investigation could take two weeks. There are no criminal charges pending against Stewart at the current time and Povero said last week there was no evidence of criminal intent. Burton's ride at Michigan was cut short because of a broken tailpipe on Sunday. The team said a crack in the tailpipe meant heat was catching the heat shields underneath the car on fire. Burton has driven in three Cup Series races this year. He drove twice previously for Michael Waltrip Racing and is going to be an analyst for NBC's race coverage in 2015. - - - - - - - Nick Bromberg is the editor of From The Marbles on Yahoo Sports.

Stewart has not driven in a Sprint Cup Series race since he struck and killed Kevin Ward at a dirt track in upstate New York on August 9. Just like with Burton's appearance in Stewart's car last week, the team said the decision only pertains to Bristol and that any decision on Atlanta, the next race on the Sprint Cup circuit, hasn't been made. The investigation into Ward's death is still ongoing by the Ontario County (N.Y.) Sheriff's Department. Last week, Sheriff Philip Povero said the investigation could take two weeks. There are no criminal charges pending against Stewart at the current time and Povero said last week there was no evidence of criminal intent. Burton's ride at Michigan was cut short because of a broken tailpipe on Sunday. The team said a crack in the tailpipe meant heat was catching the heat shields underneath the car on fire. Burton has driven in three Cup Series races this year. He drove twice previously for Michael Waltrip Racing and is going to be an analyst for NBC's race coverage in 2015. - - - - - - - Nick Bromberg is the editor of From The Marbles on Yahoo Sports.
