NASCAR What If: The 2011 Chase Under 2015 Rules

7 of 8

Round Three Elimination

During the third round of the chase Stewart again won a pair of races with non-chase driver Kasey Kahne winning one as well. The final-four are arranged based on how they stood in points after the third round even though points reset before the final race.

  1. Tony Stewart
  2. Carl Edwards
  3. Jimmie Johnson
  4. Kevin Harvick


  • 5th – Dale Earnhardt Jr. (-3)
  • 6th – Brad Keselowski (-22)
  • 7th – Matt Kenseth (-31)
  • 8th – Kyle Busch (-50)

Earnhardt Jr. would have kept the pressure on Harvick in this round but Keselowski, Kenseth and Busch each stumbled. Busch actually missed the second race of this round as his No. 18 machine was driven by Michael McDowell.
