Fast facts: The race is the eighth of 10 in the Chase for the Championship. … Kyle Busch also is racing in the Nationwide and truck events. … Danica Patrick is making her ninth series start of the season. She said Thursday that purposely bumping Landon Cassill in her last race was an important step to stand up for herself at Kansas Speedway. The only thing she'd change is her execution. When Patrick spun Cassill in the race two weeks ago, she also wrecked her own car, ending her race early. Patrick said it's "just not that easy to take someone out," but she's hopeful she won't have to do much of that in the future.
