The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Dover International Speedway this weekend for the Citizen Soldier 400 – the third round of the NASCAR Chase.
The previous two chase rounds, held at Chicagoland and New Hampshire, were won by Toyota’s Martin Truex Jr. and Team Chevy’s Kevin Harvick, respectively. This weekend’s round at Dover represents the final race before the Chase grid is trimmed from 16 drivers to 12.
Currently, Chris Buescher, Tony Stewart, Jamie McMurray and Austin Dillon are at risk of being booted from the Chase. Chevy’s Kyle Larson is also sitting 12th and will thus be looking to post a strong result at Dover to keep his playoff berth alive.
NBC Sports will handle coverage of the Citizen Soldier 400, which is to kick off shortly after 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. Click here for a full NASCAR weekend schedule and here to view the current NASCAR Sprint Cup driver’s standings.
