Fall is in the air and people all around America have been celebrating Homecoming. The same can be said for NASCAR as the series heads to Charlotte Motor Speedway this week and Saturday nights Bank of America 500. Most of the teams that race in NASCAR call Charlotte home and while a win is a big deal anywhere, it’s more so here. Throw in the fact that we’re at the halfway point of NASCAR’s ten race Chase and Saturday night could bring a wild night of racing.

The top three drivers in the Chase are slowly separating themselves from the rest of the field. But several others outside the top three are still well within striking distance.

Brad Keselowski emerged from the chaos last week at Talladega still in control of first place. Looking at his record at Charlotte he may be looking to be not much more than a survivor Saturday night. He was fifth here in May, but in the five races prior to that he finished outside the top 15 and was 12th in his first start in 2009. Keselowski does have one advantage over the field moving past Charlotte. MORE>>>
