Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards put their own exclamation points on the end of NASCAR‘s regular season by finishing second, sixth and 11th, respectively.

All four drivers advance to the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, the sport’s version of playoffs.

“We had a fun night tonight,” said Kyle, driver of the No. 18 M&M’s Crispy/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry. “We fought hard, battled a little bit there with some guys and had to work on our car. M&M’S Crispy is back, I’m back, and we’re back in the Chase so we’re ready to rock and roll.”

The Chase

The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup features 16 drivers and 10 races. Here’s how it works:

  • The grid for the 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.Positions 1-11 on the Chase field were determined by the drivers with the greatest number of wins after the first 26 races. Positions 12-16 went to the drivers who, while winless during the regular season, were highest in points.
  • NASCAR recalibrated the points for the 16 Chase drivers as soon as the Richmond race was over. Each driver begins the Chase with 2,000 points plus three bonus points for each of their respective wins this season. Team Interstate’s Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth will begin with 2012 points each, since they each won four races.
  • Kyle qualified for the Chase by virtue of his four wins, and by rallying to make it within the top 30 in driver points — after he was granted a waiver for missing the first 11 races of the season because of injury.
  • The first round is called the “Challenger Round,” and it consists of races at Chicagoland, New Hampshire and Dover. After Dover, four drivers are eliminated from contention. Any Chase driver who wins one of those three races automatically advances to the next round, and points decide the rest of the 12-driver field.
  • In the second “Contender Round,” the 12 drivers’ points are reset to 3,000. They race at Kansas, Charlotte and Talladega. After Talladega, four more drivers are eliminated. Like before, if an eligible driver wins one of these three races, he advances to the next round, called the “Eliminator.”
  • In the Eliminator Round, the final eight drivers’ points are reset to 4,000, and they compete at Martinsville, Texas and Phoenix. After Phoenix, four more are eliminated. Once again, if you’re eligible and you win, you advance.
  • The Championship Round will consist of one race with four drivers having an equal chance at the championship. The first of the four to finish wins the championship.
