WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Less than 24 hours after a disappointing 14th-place finish at the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis, Kurt Busch was back behind the wheel of his black No. 78 Chevrolet on Monday at Watkins Glen International.
After this week's Sprint Cup race at Pocono, the teams return to the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York to take on the tricky turns at The Glen. Busch sits 14th in points and his Furniture Row Racing team is putting emphasis on the final road course of the season.
The top 10 drivers in points automatically qualify for NASCAR's 10-race Chase for the Championship, and the two drivers between 11th and 20th in points with the most wins earn wild-card spots. Overall points are the deciding factor if more than two drivers have one win each.
Busch is only 19 points behind eighth-place Greg Biffle and figures he can make it in on points if he doesn't win a race.
