Greg Biffle still has a shot at making the Chase. Jamie McMurray is toast. But they have this much in common: Both shouldn't be struggling and sputtering so much. For Biffle, who ranks 14th and needs a victory to try to secure one of the last slots in the 12-driver Chase field, perhaps the answer is a new crew chief. Matt Puccia became the new point man on the headset for Biffle, Roush Fenway Racing announced Monday. He replaces Greg Erwin , who has been with the organization since 2004.

International Speedway Corp. and Speedway Motorsports Inc. are petitioning NASCAR to alter the 36-race Cup schedule to accommodate date or track changes. ISC is lobbying for a second Cup date in Kansas. SMI wants a second race at its Las Vegas venue and one for its 1.5-mile track in northern Kentucky, the Cup race its former ownership group has coveted. SMI President Bruton Smith said NASCAR should feel "morally obligated" to bring a second Cup race to Las Vegas. If we want your opinion … The Associated Press reports NASCAR has fined at least two star drivers — one as much as $50,000 — for comments considered destructive to the industry.

Bowyer the man to beat George Diaz Orlando Sentinel In Fairy Tale Land, Dale Earnhardt Jr. wins the Daytona 500 and NASCAR Nation sheds tears of joy for the prodigal son honoring his father. In the real world, Junior has yet to prove he can measure up to Daddy Dearest in a number of ways, so we'll move on to the most likely candidate: Clint Bowyer. In three of the four restrictor-plate races last year, Bowyer was the man to chase down at some point.

Several joking references to Chip Ganassi's disposition were made the morning after driver Jamie McMurray delivered the first Daytona 500 victory for both men. "Chip, does this prove nice guys can finish first?" a reporter asked. A pause followed and smirks began developing around the room. "In the case of Jamie," the reporter clarified, and all those on stage - McMurray, Kevin Manion and Felix Sabates - and everyone watching them burst into laughter. Ganassi even chuckled.

There are only two races left before the Chase field is set Sept. 11 at Richmond. Here are some pertinent details to consider: Only Clint Bowyer is within one race of dropping out of the top 12, and nine drivers could clinch this week at Atlanta. Bowyer is 100 points ahead of bubble boy Jamie McMurray, and 101 ahead of Mark Martin. McMurray and Martin are in a tough spot but not an impossible one. Kasey Kahne was 90 points behind the cutoff spot for the Chase with two races to go in 2006, but he won at California and then finished third at Richmond to squeeze into the Chase.

Mark Martin is toast. You know it. I know it. He knows it. The kid driving the go-kart down the street knows it. Martin is currently the 15th man in a 12-man race to qualify for NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup entering Saturday's final run at Richmond. "I haven't done the math," he said Tuesday, "but I don't think (the odds are) very good. " You are correct, sir. Martin is 147 points away from qualifying. Anyone within 161 points of 12th place is still eligible to make the Chase, but it virtually would take a bunch of cars wrecking in the first few laps Saturday night for Martin to roll into NASCAR's 10-race playoff.

When Tony Stewart finally wins the Daytona 500, he should receive the Dale Earnhardt treatment. Stewart won his fifth season-opening Nationwide Series race in the last six years on Saturday. On Sunday, he whiffed on his chance for his first Daytona 500 win … again. "We just missed," he said. "We've missed it since we got here. I'm not sure what we missed, but we'll figure it out." There's no question Stewart is one of the best American drivers of all time.

Ryan Newman has theories about a lot of things, but his latest might make a lot of sense. "I was thinking about when I was out there, these shouldn't be points races," Newman said after crashing (as usual) Sunday at Talladega. "If they want to have these races for the fans, just let us come here and do this, but don't let it affect our championship because it's not racing." As it often does, Sunday's race in Talladega left many drivers wondering what role they play in the race itself.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Rookie Scott Wimmer finished third yesterday at the Daytona 500, despite not having a driver's license. Wimmer, 28, had his license revoked when he was charged with driving while intoxicated Jan. 31. Since then, there has been a debate in the NASCAR garages about whether he should be allowed to race. Driver Kyle Petty said last week, "it sends the wrong message" to young people, but NASCAR rules do not require a competitor to have a valid driver's license. "You know, I think I could be a role model to people in a way of a lesson learned," Wimmer said.

9:40 p.m. [Encore] Checking the cast list in this Will Ferrell NASCAR movie, you see lots of people playing themselves - Dale Earnhardt Jr., Darrell Waltrip, Jamie McMurray, Wally Dallenbach, Elvis Costello. (Elvis Costello?) But you don't see Tony Stewart. Could it be that the producers were afraid Stewart might sock Ferrell (right)in the mouth?
