CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- NASCAR says Kevin Harvick has clinched at
least a wild-card berth in the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup
Harvick was not listed among drivers who had clinched after
Saturday night's race at Bristol because there are still scenarios
where he could fall outside of the top 10 in points. Further review
Monday by NASCAR determined his three victories this season have
earned him at minimum one of the two wild cards.
Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards
officially clinched berths on Saturday night.
That leaves seven spots open to be claimed over the next two
races. Drivers would prefer to make it into the Chase by being
inside the top 10 in the standings because that will award them
bonus points not eligible to the two wild cards.
