It’s been a whirlwind week for 16 drivers who are in the 2015 NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup. It all came together Thursday in Chicago, as the field for NASCAR’s 10-race playoff was under one roof at The Murphy event space in Chicago for the annual Chase media day.  The 16 drivers all made their way across America this week lead after the field was set last Saturday at Richmond International Raceway.

Joey Logano went to New Hampshire Tuesday. The state has been home to the first United States Presidential primary for the last 100 years and Logano won the first race of last year’s Chase at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  Logano hopes to make a return appearance to the final round again this year.

“I think last year we proved that we can do it,” Logano said Thursday. MORE>>>
