Comments: NASCAR Picks for Richmond

It all comes down to this weekend's race at Richmond International Raceway for the handful of drivers hoping to make the Chase. Some have to win to get in. Others could potentially make it just by having a solid night. Either way, the race should be action packed as the Chase situation fluctuates throughout the night and desperation sets in. Throw in the fact that drivers already in the Chase would love a win to grab a few more bonus points, and a tense, aggressive atmosphere could be on tap.

For owners, history says that a few big names will find trouble this weekend. Whether it is a driver locked into the Chase that gambles for the win and misses out or a driver trying to make the Chase that goes down from over driving their car, a clean, calm regular season finale has been a rarity. Once the Chase begins at Chicagoland, it will be time to rely heavily on the title contenders; for this weekend, adding a few sleepers to the mix could pay off.
