What to Watch For: Sunday marks the cutoff race for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup’s Round of 16. Right now, Jamie McMurray (five points below Kyle Larson on the cutoff line), Austin Dillon (-5), Tony Stewart (-11) and Chris Buescher (-30) will all be eliminated from the Chase if they can’t improve their positions. … Kevin Harvick goes for his second straight win after visiting Victory Lane at New Hampshire. He is the defending fall Dover winner. … Spring Dover winner Matt Kenseth attempts the season track sweep this weekend. No driver has won twice at a single track this year. … Jimmie Johnson holds the Dover track record with 10 wins. Last season, he was knocked out of the Chase at the Monster Mile after he broke a rear axle seal on his car.
