With so much on the line Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 Richmond International Raceway could be the wildest race of the season to date. This marks the final event in NASCAR’s ‘regular’ season and finalizes the field for the10 race 2012 Chase for the Sprint Cup.

While the top of the field is locked in, there are still three spots up for grabs and 10 drivers who can mathematically contest for them.

Chief among those on the outside looking in is Kyle Busch. Currently Kasey Kahne holds the provisional Wild Card spot with Busch looking to knock him off that bubble. Given the history of Joe Gibbs Racing here at Richmond, Saturday night Busch has a great chance of doing just that.

Kyle won here in the spring and was sixth in this race last season; overall he has four wins here, three of those coming in the last five Richmond races. MORE>>>
