NASCAR Chase 2014 Ryan Berenz

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series “playoffs” begin Sunday, Sept. 14, at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill., in the MyAFibStory.com 400, the first race of the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. ESPN will air nine of the Chase races, with the Oct. 11 Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway airing in primetime on ABC. It’s the final year of ESPN/ABC covering NASCAR, as that portion of TV rights will go to NBC Sports Group beginning in 2015.

NASCAR is introducing an elimination format to the Chase this season, as a Chase Grid of 16 drivers gets reduced by four after every three races. Four drivers will be eligible to win the Sprint Cup championship in the season finale, with the race’s highest finisher taking the season title.
