RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — NASCAR says eight drivers are racing for the last two berths in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

It's really down to two for one wild-card berth in the 12-driver field.

The last spot is likely a race between Kyle Busch or Jeff Gordon, who both talk as if they are only racing each other Saturday night.

Busch can clinch a berth by winning the race, or by losing 12 or fewer spots to Gordon.

Gordon makes it into the Chase by finishing 13 points ahead of Busch. And, a week after failing to knock Denny Hamlin out of the way at Atlanta for what would have been a crucial victory, Gordon is vowing to do anything needed to make the Chase.
