DOVER, Del.—Given the dominance of Joe Gibbs Racing drivers Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch in the first two Chase races, the staying power of five-time champion Jimmie Johnson and the wide spread in the points standings, it’s tempting to characterize the Chase as a three-man race.

To Greg Biffle, who’s fifth in the standings, that’s sheer nonsense.

“The Chase, from what I understand, is made up of 10 races,” Biffle said Friday after Sprint Cup practice at Dover International Speedway. “And to be two races into the Chase and say it’s a three-man race already to me seems silly. …

“Take, for instance, last week (at New Hampshire). We finished third and moved up six spots in the points to fifth. I don’t know how anyone would say it’s a three-man race. … I just think there are more than three cars in this thing right now.”
