What to Watch For: Kevin Harvick virtually needs to win at Dover to advance in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup … Kyle Busch is one point behind the cutoff line to transfer to the Chase’s Contender Round. … Jimmie Johnson will make his 500th start at Dover, where he boasts a track-record 10 victories. … Joe Gibbs Racing has won 10 of the last 13 races… Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth, race winners at Chicago and New Hampshire, respectively, have already punched their tickets into the Contender Round. The other 10 Contender Round spots will be filled by the winner at Dover if he is a Chase driver, with the remaining positions filled by Chase drivers with the most points.
