Sprint Cup Chase scouting report


Chicagoland Speedway

Where/when/TV: GEICO 400, Joliet, Ill., 2 p.m. today, ESPN

This is where the magic started last season for Tony Stewart. Coming off of a regular season where he went winless, Stewart led 28 of the final 30 laps to start the Chase with a victory, the first of five to end his championship season. Stewart is the only three-time winner at the 1.5-mile trioval. The track has not been as kind to Kasey Kahne, who has two top-10 finishes in eight starts and an average finish of 21st here, the worst of any Chase contenders.
